For more than 80 years, Columbia Sportswear Company has been making gear for people who enjoy the outdoors in the Pacific Northwest and far beyond. Chairman Gert Boyle has been at the helm for nearly 50 of those years and her Tough Mother persona helped grow Columbia into the global sportswear brand it is today. We’re still based in Portland, Oregon and still making no-nonsense apparel, footwear, and accessories to keep you warm, dry, cool, and protected no matter what. Our innovative gear, Pacific Northwest heritage, irreverent spirit, and family business ethos is what sets us apart.Columbia is made up of talented, hardworking people who are as passionate about the outdoors as you are. And while our products are available around the world, we're proud to be based in the great Pacific Northwest where the majestic forests, volcanic mountains, rugged coastline, and wide open spaces serve as our lab and playground. This is where we hike, fish, hunt, camp, climb, shred, golf, paddle, run, and just enjoy the fresh air with friends. Come join us!
