Growing in popularity among Filipino outdoorsmen is Columbia Sportswear. Its Titanium Series offers excellent protection against the elements, particularly ultraviolet light. Although not much on bags, its pants are packable, versatile, and durable. Also, its lightweight shoes offer an excellent alternative vis-a-vis the heavy duty Merrell shoes especially in straightforward treks, while offering a comparable durability. Although designed for temperature America, Columbia jackets and windbreakers are perfect for Cordillera treks, or international climbs. Of course, there are also shirts, socks specific for treks and the outdoors, and the like. Columbia tents, however, are not readily available.
