The COLD COMFORT GIVEAWAY has closed as of Jan. 31. Stay tuned for the announcement of a winner. In the meantime, you can enter to win a pair of KEEN hiking boots in February's contest—the HIT THE TRAIL GIVEAWAY. Click here to enter.

During winter and early spring, temperatures plummet. And so does your motivation to stay active outside. Don't let the cold weather keep you from camping, snowshoeing, hiking, or simply enjoying the great outdoors with your Scouts. Enter to win this classic Columbia parka—a $300 value!—to stay warm during backcountry excursions or use as a fashionable everyday jacket.

The waterproof, yet breathable, Bugaboo Tech Parka features Columbia's "Omni Heat" thermal reflective lining that will keep you warm and toasty no matter how low the mercury drops. What about warmer days? Simply unzip the soft-shell liner and shed the extra insulation. The flexible outer shell will keep you dry and block the wind without causing you to overheat.

Other extras include a zip-on hood, vents located beneath the underarm area, a plethora of pockets, and an elongated jacket tail that helps keep your lower body warm in extreme temperatures.


Click here to register to win a $300 Columbia Bugaboo Tech Parka in the COLD COMFORT GIVEAWAY. Enter daily through Jan. 31 to increase your chances to win.

A winner will be randomly selected on Feb. 1, and he or she will be contacted by a Scouting magazine editor. Once the winner is confirmed, the person's name, city, and state will be announced on scoutingmagazine.org.

Good luck!
