A TESTED TOUGH HISTORY
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Columbia Sportswear Company has been making gear so that Pacific Northwesterners
can enjoy the outdoors for more than 70 years. At the helm for over 40 years has been our Chairman, Gert Boyle. Her Tough
Mother persona has grown Columbia into the global sportswear company that it is today—still based in Portland, still making nononsense
apparel and footwear to keep you WARM, DRY, COOL and PROTECTED no matter what. Our unique Pacific Northwest
heritage and Boyle family irreverence is what sets us apart from the competition.
