Event description

Description

The L train breaks down under the East River. You get lost on a day hike with little food and only half a nalgene of water. Whether in New York City or out in the backcountry, being prepared for a survival scenario takes practice and preparation. Tonight, join us as we hear from outdoor guide Dave Dicerbo on the psychology of survival starting with effective decision making under pressure (good for city or outdoors!).

Grab a Sierra Nevada brew and join us at Columbia Sportswear for a night of learning.


OutdoorFest is a 10-day outdoor adventure festival in the five boroughs of New York City. Join us from May 31 – June 9, 2019 to paddle, bike, hike, camp and more all over the city! outdoorfest.com/schedule

About your host:

Columbia Sportswear Company was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, making gear so that Pacific Northwesterners could enjoy the outdoors longer. At the helm for over 45 years has been our Chairman, Gert Boyle. Her Tough Mother ethos has grown Columbia into the global sportswear company that it is today—still based in Portland, still making no-nonsense apparel and footwear to protect you from the elements.

TESTED TOUGH PROMISE: Mrs. Boyle once famously said, “It’s perfect. Now make it better.” Her ethos is what charges us every day to make gear that is TESTED TOUGH. TESTED TOUGH is the guarantee that every Columbia product has been tested in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can muster. Not just by the Boyles, but by every Columbia employee, day in and day out. The entire company carries on the Boyle family spirit, always designing and testing products to keep you more protected more of the time.
