It was my one stop shop during my climbing days. A one of a kind store in Robinson’s Galleria, it has all of the outdoor gears that you need from bags, tents, rashguards, longboards, helmets, shirts etc. Bombproof was undeniably an icon for outdoor gears as well as extreme sports. Recently, Bombproof Gear released its new logo. Somewhat its like an emblem, a symbol for infinity and its also like an anagram. As I always visit this store whenever I’m in Robinson’s Galleria, I was fascinated with the newly renovated store. It was more spacious than the last time I went there. I was given a chance to meet the owner of Bombproof last month during our dinner at Jukka Holopainen’s place at The Fort. Jay is a cool guy and excited for being a dad during those days. I passed by Bombproof Gear yesterday to see if there is a DWLE longboard Bag and all of a sudden Jay de Leon was there. I told him about the new logo when I saw it on facebook and asked what was his inspiration about the new brand of his store, then Jay said, “The logo designed by the legendary artist Kid Dragon. Beyond the hidden letters, realization of this logo was inspired by the symbols of infinity and the shirivasta which means interconnectedness, endless knot of life and love. And with this we feel that it closely represents what we stand for, that beyond business and money, we exist for those who believe that we are all parts of the same “whole.” The bombproof and unshakeable truth will ultimately realized, and that is the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. I was so blessed to know the man behind Bombproof. A simple man with a clear vision of promoting extreme sports in the Philippines.
