Actif Epica last minute gear part 2

It’s almost that time of year…for the 4th year in a row Actif Epica is going to test the resilience of dozens of intrepid cyclists and runners in the middle of a Manitoba winter as they take the 130km trek through the wind-swept prairies on their way to the finish line at the Forks this coming Saturday, February 14th.

If you’re not already participating in the event as a competitor or volunteer consider heading to the finish line to cheer on a few finishers or watch their progress on the official event site or @ActifEpica twitter handle.

If you are a competitor we’re featuring at least 1 helpful product on this site each day this week that might make for a good last-minute purchase.

Here we’re featuring a super lightweight but still crazy warm parka: The Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket.  This award winning garment is especially helpful for events like Actif Epica because it can be so easily packed away for emergency use.


Learn more about this jacket by checking out the video below, or come to the shop and check one out in person – we still have a decent selection of both men’s and women’s in stock at a regular cost of $330 each, but currently discounted along with most of our outerwear by 30%.
