Shopping for Trekking Gears Via Train
Columbia Sportswear Company at the Gateway Mall. I saw breathable jackets at P 6K, technical t-shirts at P 1K, shoes, shorts, backpacks etc. Gateway is in Araneta Center accessible via LRT2. Walk further to Farmer's via the elevated walkway, you will find the big Montanara Outlet.

Take the MRT going to Shaw, go to Shang-rila and you will see the
North Face Outlet. Walk further The Podium you will find Columbia's
2nd Sportwear Company Store. Pass by Megamall for Habagat.

Stop by Ayala, take the elevated walkway towards Pasong Tamo for
White Mountain, Rocks and Woods, Expedition Plus and further South
Camp-O.

Or, take the LRT2 going to V. Mapa, see the Sandugo Stall behind
Mercury Drug.

Ride the LRT1 to Monumento, you will find Conquer somewhere near the
Sierra Madre bus terminal. Drop off at Quirino, buy at the original
Trek Store.
