Columbia Sportswear got its name from the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon, where this 70-year-old company was founded. Columbia Sportswear was born in the Pacific Northwest, where a rugged, frontier attitude prevails. The founding Boyle family, having fled the turmoil of Germany in 1938, settled in Portland and started the Columbia Hat Company, which later became Columbia Sportswear. Their mission has always been to cater to those who love the outdoors, and over the decades has developed an impressive array of tech fabrics and constructions which help the outdoorsman and outdoorswoman to adapt to all kinds of weather conditions. Whether you're into skiing, hiking, running, paddling, golfing, camping, climbing or riding, Columbia has the perfect protective gear for you.
