Hey everybody!

It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been a tad swamped at work and just came off of a nice long roadtrip up to Oregon, packed with lots of hiking, camping, kayaking, biking, and delicious beer-drinking. While there, I stopped at the Columbia Sportswear HQ and met up with some old friends from the OmniTen Arizona excursion (and also loaded up the trunk with a shopping spree in the Employee Store) … but don’t worry – I picked up something for you guys, too.

Each of these five coupons entitle you to purchase up to three OmniFreeze Zero short sleeve tops at a discounted price. I reviewed these shirts earlier this year and they’re pretty dang awesome. Not only will you be able to save a bit of cash on them, but you’ll also be able to get them MONTHS before anyone else – and still in time to use during these seemingly neverending million-degree days.

All you have to do to is this:

1. For one entry in the contest, leave me a comment here letting me know your favorite way to keep cool while hiking in the heat.
2. If you’re socially networked, you can get an additional entry by SHARING the Modern Hiker Facebook Page‘s entry for this post on your timeline. (NOTE: for me to see that you’ve done this, you have to share the post from the Modern Hiker Facebook Page itself – not by posting the URL into your own timeline)
3. Make sure I have a way of getting in touch with you! If you leave a comment on the site, sign in with your email address. If you share this post from Facebook, make sure you can receive incoming messages from pages on your privacy settings.

The contest will be open for entries until 5PM Pacific on Friday, August 24th. Winners will be chosen at random and emailed the purchase codes by Monday, August 27th, which they can use at OmniFreezeZero.com until September 17, 2012.

In the event that a winner does not provide a valid email address, their prize will be forfeited and I will randomly choose another winner in their place.

Just in case, here’s all the small-print legal stuff from the bottom of the Columbia cards:

Offer valid for a single online Columbia sales transaction for a maximum of three Omni-Freeze ZERO Coolest Cool Short Sleeve Top. Offer ends September 17, 2012.

This discount cannot be used with any other merchandise offer, coupon, or discount. Not valid in Columbia retail stores. In the event of a return or exchange, discount will be forfeited and may not be reused. Offer is subject to product availability.

So that’s it! What are you waiting for? Enter, and good luck!
