Columbia Bugaboo Parka Women’s – Review

Two months ago, my friends invited me to a skiing trip which came as a total surprise to me. I had never skied before in my life so needless to say I did not possess a skiing jacket at the time. I’d love to go shopping and buy one in the store, but the prices online were so much lower.

Besides, I have to watch my spending. It’s not like I can afford to go on a spending spree and get myself in debt just now that I’m recovering from recent financial problems.

The one problem with purchasing clothing online is that, sometimes, the size isn’t always right. I’ve bought clothes (shirts and jeans) online before. Most of the time, the sizes turn out to be right. On one occasion, I had to return a shirt which was too big for me.

This jacket comes in large and x-large sizes. I got the large size, because I am of normal build. Upon arrival, the jacket fit me like a glove.

The double zippers on this jacket make sure that it is easy to close it up really tight. I wore this jacket on my skiing trip and I took a few nasty falls. I got bruised, but the jacket made sure that no snow or water got on the inside.

I did not get cold at all. As a matter of fact, I would say that this Bugaboo jacket kept me pretty warm all throughout my skiing trip. The only times at which I felt cold was when I had been outside for hours without having a bite to eat.

But who wants to ski for more than four hours without a break anyway? Skiing is completely exhausting! It’s also lots of fun and, thanks to my Bugaboo Parka, also comfortably warm!
