If it's true that experience brings wisdom, then Columbia Sportswear’s more than 70 years in business should mean we know a thing or two about making great outdoor gear. We like to think so.
We enjoy the outdoors as much as you do, which means we know what you need. We know that being cold and wet is no fun. Blue eyes may be sexy, but blue lips aren't. And, while a sunny day is excellent, sunburn sucks. That's why we make high-quality performance products that keep you comfortable and protected, no matter where your excursions take you.
The outdoors isn't all about remote expeditions or climbing the world's highest mountains. Anyone can enjoy the outdoors. It's easy. Just open the door and go outside. When everyone participates, the great outdoors becomes the Greater Outdoors. From the mountain peak to the neighborhood park, from the glacier to the garden, and from the Tour de France to training wheels, Columbia helps you enjoy your outdoor adventure anywhere you like to play.
At Columbia Sportswear, we are committed to building a company of which we can all be proud – not only of the innovative products we create and the financial results we achieve, but the manner in which we achieve them. Whether it’s responsible sourcing, giving back to our communities, or reducing our environmental impact, we believe corporate responsibility is a companywide effort.
We have three key initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to support outdoor education and conservation. Each of these projects includes multiple partners, international scope, and address critical global issues at a local level. Please see the descriptions below to learn more about these dynamic partnerships.
