Win a Marmot Variant jacket with Polartec

Not everyone dreads the arrival of winter. Here at Gadling, we actually get pretty excited about seeing our breath, making the most of snow days and sipping hot toddies. That’s because we understand that there are two keys to enjoying winter. First, dress appropriately. A good coat goes a long way towards getting you to embrace some chilly air. Second, take advantage of all the fun activities that winter has to offer. Why hunker down indoors until Easter when you can get outside for a snowball fight, ice skate on a local pond or simply take a walk on a clear winter day? Hot cocoa always tastes better after some time spent outside. So, to help you dress the part and stay active all winter, we’re giving away a Marmot Variant jacket with Polartec Power Stretch.

The Marmot Variant jacket is perfect for people who want to be on the move even when the temperatures begin to dip. It keeps your core warm while the Polartec Power Stretch allows for full range of motion. Whether you’re walking to class, snowshoeing through the woods or simply cleaning off your snowed-in car, the Marmot Variant will keep you warm and comfortable.

We have one men’s medium in “Vapor Blue/Black” to give away to a very lucky Gadling reader. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment below sharing your favorite outdoor winter memory. Maybe you built a massive snow fort. Perhaps you raced your sled down the highest hill in town. Or, if you’re like my grandfather, you just had to walk five miles to and from school barefoot (uphill both ways, of course).

Whatever it is, just tell us your favorite winter activity memory in a comment on this post and we’ll select one respondent at random to win the Marmot Variant jacket with Polartec Power Stretch.
