From Portland, Oregon, Columbia Sportswear is a global outdoor brand that crafts active lifestyle gear fortified with industry-leading technologies and tested in its own backyard. The apparel, footwear, and accessories reflect the Pacific Northwest's heritage and indomitable spirit.
Columbia’s founders have known what it means to be durable and withstanding. Paul and Marie Lamfrom fled Nazi Germany in 1937 to start Columbia’s humble beginnings as a hat company. Columbia is so detail-oriented that just in their cold weather outerwear, even the seaming is impenetrable to the elements.
Temperatures may drop every year, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop your outdoor adventures. Columbia offers jackets to keep out the cold while you don’t miss a beat during outdoor chores, recreational ambitions, or walks to the mailbox.
If your winters are full of rain and wind, we have the perfect... choice of waterproof Columbia jackets with varying weights of insulation and interchangeable liners. Even morning commutes or brisk Autumn mornings can be comfortable without added weight with a lightweight, water-resistant, down-filled puffer.
