We enjoy the outdoors as much as you do, and our experience afield means that we know what you need. We know that being cold and wet is no fun. Blue eyes may be sexy, but blue lips aren't. And, while a sunny day is excellent, sunburn sucks. That's why Columbia Sportswear Hunting Clothes makes high-quality performance products that keep you comfortable and protected.
Anyone can enjoy the outdoors. It's easy. Just open the door and go outside. From the hunting lodge to the duck blind , deer blind to the high country elk hunt, and from the cornfield pheasant hunt to the south Texas dove shoot, Columbia Hunting Clothes helps you enjoy your outdoor adventure anywhere you like to play.We're a family business gone global. Chairman Gert Boyle's parents — German nationals who fled Nazi Germany in 1938 — purchased a small hat company upon their arrival in Portland and named it Columbia Hat Company. The name, Columbia, was derived from the river that inspired their new home. This humble beginning was of huge significance to the family, marking new found freedom and a fresh start. Her husband later took over, and after he died Gert ran the show, going from housewife to executive overnight. Today, her son Tim Boyle is our longtime president and CEO. The family — like our business — has experienced its ups and downs, but enjoying the outdoors together has always been an inseparable part of the program. Columbia Sportswear Hunting Clothing is made up of real people who are as passionate about the outdoors as you are. And, while Columbia Sportswear products are available around the world, we're based in the great Pacific Northwest. This is where we hike, ride, fish, hunt, climb, camp, golf, paddle, run, and just enjoy fresh air with friends.
