Winter Columbia Jackets For Skiing and Snowboarding
Sportswear by Columbia started merely as a hat distributor in 1938 and has grown since then to being one of the largest outerwear brands in the United States.
Columbia jackets are recommended and worn by many outdoor sports enthusiasts needing style and comfort as well as function.
Columbia jackets are the first to have been made with waterproof/breathable fabric. This was a breakthrough technology that was called the "Columbia Interchange System" and was the beginning of a liner and shell combination. Now it is hard to find a jacket not made with this system, but Columbia is the company that can say "we started it".
Their product line consists of jackets and coats made for hunting, snowboarding, training, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, trekking, fishing and more. If there is an outdoor sport you will find a Columbia jacket perfect for it.
Each one is made with a certain sport in mind, but remember that you do not have to be active with this particular sport to wear these jackets either. You may just want it for style instead of function.
