Columbia was born in Portland, Oregon, USA, where snow-covered volcanos and glaciers are just a hike away.Our goal is to keep you protected not matter what. That’s why our products are tested in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can muster.
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 and that's why our mission statement is: Design and deliver authentic, outdoor, high-value products for active consumers of all ages.
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. 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.
