About Columbia’s Omni Technologies
This garment is outfitted with Columbia’s Omni-Shade and Omni-Dry technologies. Columbia’s Omni-Shade clothing protects you from damaging UV radiation by blocking the majority of the sun’s harmful rays, letting you stay out longer on sunny days. Unlike SPF (Sun Protection Factor)–which is a measure of sunburn reduction from sunblock and protects you from UVA rays–Columbia’s Omni-Shade products are far more versatile, combining a tight-weave construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology. These features not only prevent sunburns and long-term skin damage, but they also offer protection to the wearer from UVB rays along with UVA rays. UVB rays are a lot more harmful than UVA, and are present even on cloudy days. Plus, Omni-Shade doesn’t wear off. As an alternative, your safety increases as the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) increases. Several layers of Omni-Shade protection are to be had: UPF 15, UPF 30, UPF 40, and UPF 50-plus. It’s like sunscreen, but you do not have to reapply. All Omni-Shade fabric carries the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, which is given to sun-protective fabrics that have a minimum UPF of 30.
Omni-Dry is the ultimate moisture-management technology for the outdoors. Its superior wicking properties move moisture away from the body and helps sweat evaporate. All through physical activity, increased body temperature causes perspiration. Typically this ends up in damp, clammy, and uncomfortable (not to mention unattractive) clothing. With Omni-Dry clothing, alternatively, moisture is quickly wicked up into the fabric and away from the wearer’s skin. The moisture then spreads out across the surface of the fabric and quickly evaporates. This wicking/evaporation process helps to keep you cool and the clothing dry. This not only helps keep watch over your temperature, but it also prevents chafing and helps to keep you comfortable all day.

About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small circle of relatives-owned hat distributor to probably the most world’s largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of skiwear in america. Columbia’s extensive product line includes all kinds of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia focuses on developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company.
Columbia’s history starts with Gert’s parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms made up our minds to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the circle of relatives business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal all at once died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that it wasn’t long before business truly started to take off. Columbia was once probably the most first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology known as the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for more than one wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60 year-old Gert began her role as “Mother Boyle” in Columbia’s successful and popular advertising campaign.
The company went public in 1998 and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outside apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people world wide and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers the world over.
