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. Chairman, Gert Boyle has been at the helm for more than 40 years. Her ‘Tough Mother’ persona has seen Columbia grow into the global sportswear company that it is today – still based in Portland, still making no-nonsense apparel and footwear to keep you warm, dry, cool and protected, no matter what. Its unique Pacific Northwest heritage and Boyle family irreverence is what sets the brand apart from the competition.
