Walking Advertisement


Do you like walking around giving free advertising for a corporation?  I only saw the front view of the jacket on the Columbia website.  After I opened up the package I found COLUMBIA emblazoned on the back in large letters with its logo.

Returning to the website I discovered I was supposed to hover the cursor on the  image to see the back view.  Next time I'll be more cautious.
