Columbia has been creating innovative outdoor gear and technologies since 1938 when the Boyle family fled Nazi Germany and began their fresh start making hats in Portland, Oregon. Columbia Sportswear is a global outdoor brand that crafts active lifestyle gear fortified with industry-leading technologies and tested in their own backyard. Columbia's apparel, footwear, and accessories reflect the Pacific Northwest heritage and indomitable spirit.
At Columbia, they're as passionate about the outdoors as you are. And while their gear is available around the world, they're proud to be based in the Pacific Northwest where the lush forests, snow-covered mountains, rugged coastline, and wide-open spaces serve as our playground. This is where we hike, fish, hunt, camp, climb, shred, paddle, golf, run, and just enjoy the fresh air with friends.
