Columbia Sportswear Company™ was Founded in 1938 in Portland, Oregon. Since then it has grown from a small family-owned company to one of the world's largest outerwear brands. From the beginning, Columbia focused on creating authentic, innovative products for passionate outdoor lovers - people like you. The Columbia brand is committed to helping get more people outside, more often.
This vision and passion is cultivated from the top of the company and drives them to make the best products for outdoors people with the same spirit. They believe this passion is what defines true pioneers. Not skill. Not the size of the mountains they play on. It's their joy. To us this makes the great outdoors the Greater Outdoors. When consumers around the globe think outdoors, they think Columbia.
