Columbia's technologies and corporate responsibility
Columbia's heritage goes back more than 80 years. Its know-how is no longer in question, given the multitude of technologies the brand has developed.
For example, if Columbia winter coats are so warm and breathable, it's thanks to Omni-Heat™ technology and its little dots all over the garment's inner lining. Available in several versions, Omni-Heat™ is one of the references on the market when it comes to warmth. It can be found on many Columbia jackets.
Another strong technology from the brand is Columbia Performance Fishing Gear (Columbia PFG), much appreciated by anglers looking for clothing that dries quickly and protects against the harmful effects of the sun.
Beyond its technologies, Columbia also takes initiatives to minimize its environmental impact. The brand takes care to implement sustainable manufacturing techniques, to use products that are more respectful of the environment… OutDry Eco, for example, manages to ensure total waterproofness in a more responsible way. Another example is Columbia's insulated jackets, which comply with RDS (ethical down) standards. Bluesign materials are also used in some of the brand’s products.
