We had the opportunity to check out OutDry™ Ex Diamond Heatzone Jacket by Columbia. OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional rain gear uses interior waterproof membranes which don’t allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.
Part of their Titanium line, this incredibly warm down jacket is fully seam-sealed and features rugged, external taping that makes it look every bit as waterproof as it is. It also features a super-soft chin guard and an adjustable storm hood with a removable, faux fur collar.

We spoke with Scott Wisotsky and Shachar Avraham founders of Campus Pursuit.Campus Pursuit was developed in 2013 by two students from Binghamton University. Scott Wisotsky and Shachar Avraham developed a better way of advertising on college campuses at a low cost. In 2014, the company expanded their business from local brand to national brands. Campus Pursuit, the interactive scavenger hunt app sweeping college campuses across the country, won the 2016 TAMID Tank competition hosted by TAMID at Queens College, New York. Kevin Harrington, original Shark on ABC’s Emmy winning TV show, “Shark Tank,” along with two other investor panelists pledged an investment in the growth of Campus Pursuit.
Campus Pursuit engages college students with brands through daily, campus-wide scavenger hunts. Students follow clues on the Campus Pursuit iOS and Android app to find hidden prizes – thus, increasing awareness of each brand. A team of student brand ambassadors at each campus manages the scavenger hunts and spreads the word about the app.
Campus Pursuit was selected as one of the three startups, from many throughout New York State that had applied, to pitch at the event. Campus Pursuit was the only company to receive a deal from the investor panel.
“I’ve launched hundreds of products over the last 30 years,” said Harrington. “When I saw the Campus Pursuit opportunity during TAMID Tank, I knew, instantly, that this would be a great way for marketers to get valuable information in the lucrative college marketplace.”
Campus Pursuit has partnered with brands including PopCorners, AMP Energy, Moon Cheese Snacks, Neuro Drinks, NFL Sunday Ticket, Chipotle, Kettle Brand Chips, Harry’s, and many more. Each scavenger hunt provides these companies with data about users, providing an understanding of the students who find the prizes.
