ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Columbia Sportswear is one of the largest manufacturers of skiwear and gear for cold-weather sports in the United States. Its products, which are often made from high-tech fabrics that protect against sun and shed water while remaining breathable, are a perennial favorite with sportsmen. For camping enthusiasts Columbia has bags, backpacks and tents labeled Mountain Hardwear. The company also sells sportswear (chinos, sweaters, hiking shorts, swim trunks, lightweight active outdoor wear, fishing gear) and accessories (hats, gloves and scarves, sunglasses and goggles) for those who wish to sport the head-to-toe Columbia look. There are other brand names in the company’s stable as well: footgear in the form of Sorel and Montrail (trail running and hiking shoes). The corporation has a handful of branded retail and outlet stores. Columbia’s goods are most widely distributed to more than 9,000 wholesale customers in at least 100 countries, although between 65 and 70 percent of its revenue is generated in the United States and Canada.
