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.
Stay warm in cold conditions.
Omni-Heat helps maintain warmth and prevent heat loss through reflective, electric, and insulated technologies, keeping you comfortable in cold weather.
It’s the job of large companies to ensure that what they make is produced in a responsible, conscientious fashion. We care about what we produce, the people who make it, and the places it’s made in.
Here at Columbia, we believe it takes a group of people committed to a cause to truly create change that improves people and places around the world. We’re proud to support a number of these types of groups and the work they do.

Does the thought of hiking a local mountain bring you great joy? Does just thinking about paddle-boarding at your state park bring a smile to your face? Us too, and that's why we love Columbia. Their ultimate motive is to bring you the materials you need to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. Whether that means making the best GORE-TEX waterproof hiking boots or great water shoes, Columbia shoes have you covered for those outdoor excursions you know and love.
Even better... Columbia continues to be a family-owned and operated business for more than 70 years. Their experience in the outdoor realm is testament to the quality of their products and the knowledge that's so obviously packed behind them. Their years of outdoor fun makes Columbia experts in performance gear and shoes. They also realize that every excursion doesn't have to be a remote expedition... you merely have to step outside your front door to experience the amazing fresh air of the outdoors. That's why they've created awesome casual shoes to get you where you want to go, dry, comfortable and happy.
While Columbia sells internationally, they're based in the local Pacific Northwest, surrounded by tall trees, majestic forests and a rugged coast. Their world is their playground, and their testing ground. This means that all of their boots, shoes and water footwear is tried-and-true tested within the elements for the absolute best outdoor experience.
