The Columbia brand

Columbia, a division of Columbia Sportswear Company, is a leading global outdoor apparel, footwear, accessories and equipment company.

Since our founding in 1938 in Portland, Oregon, we have dedicated our efforts to pushing the edges of product innovation, quality and performance. Our philosophy is summed up with the words ”trying stuff.”

We believe putting ideas into action and simply trying new things is the fuel of progress and is what has opened the doors to the more than 100 countries in which our products are sold. Trying stuff is also what marries the innovative technologies of our products and designs to the passion of the people who rely on them to increase comfort and protection in the outdoors.

Trying stuff since 1938
