Columbia Technology - Omni-Tech

OMNI-TECH®

Columbia Sportswear's Omni-Tech® products provide premium waterproof and breathable protection by keeping outside elements from getting in, while still allowing moisture vapors to move away from the skin. Microporous membranes keep water from penetrating the fabric yet allow perspiration to escape, so you stay dry.

OMNI-SHIELD®

Omni-Shield® delivers protection from the outdoors where you least expect it but need it most. This coated fabric resists all liquids below 170 degrees from absorbing into the yarns and staining the garment (without any effect on the feel of the material). The fabric itself will also dry 3-5 times faster than untreated fabric, without holding moisture like a conventional fabric, meaning it stays lighter even when its wet.

OMNI-SHADE®

Columbia Sportswear's Omni-Shade® clothing protects you from damaging UV radiation by blocking the majority of the sun's harmful rays, so you can stay out longer. Omni-Shade blocks Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays (UVA and UVB), helping to prevent sun burn and long-term skin damage through tight weave construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology.

About Columbia

We try things. That may sound like small potatoes. But more than talent, money, or good looks; trying is the fuel of progress. It's the spirit that pushes people up mountains, down rivers, and across continents. Trying helped us put little silver dots on the inside of jackets, made shirts that repel bugs, and led to a rechargeable heating system in boots. If you think trying won't help, remember the Grand Canyon started with one drop of water trying to get to the ocean. And Columbia was born as a small, family hat company in Portland. So try. Try often. Try differently. Try harder. Then try again. Greatness will follow. Columbia. Trying stuff since 1938.
