In the year 1960, the name of the company was changed to Columbia Sportswear Company.

    Am a big fan of your Super Bonehead shirts , but since fall of 2022 can’t find them online or in stores , after several attempts in using the “Chat” online haven’t gotten a response answer as to where/how may find these shirts .
    Need some assistance , how can I spend some money with Columbia in purchasing shirts from you to replenish my closet ?


    Through this message receive a cordial greeting.
    My name is Francisco Batarse and I represent a family business with a working time of more than 91 years since it was founded in El Salvador.
    We would be interested in being able to communicate with you because we are interested in being able to sell the Columbia brand in shirts for men and women. In our portfolio I can mention that we have prestigious brands authorized to sell, among them we have LACOSTE, PSYCHO BUNNY, IZOD, LEVIS, DOCKERS, US POLO ASSN. DKNY, PINGUIN and others.
    I would like to have an email or contact number from you to expand all the information.
    are our emails
    my WhatsApp is +50379159230.
    Waiting for a positive response to my request, I say goodbye to you.

    I am a big fan of your clothing and so is my wife my question to you is why don’t you have a Hawaii style of men’s shirts and women’s blouses.

  • Larry Tucker says:

    I purchased my first pair of Columbia hiking shoes 2 years ago. I’ve barely worn them and now they are coming apart. I am very disappointed in the quality of the product.

  • Edith says:

    Bad customer service, I have request to chat no help recommends to call the customer care # for help. I have called and I have been waiting for almost 1 1/2 hours

    The changes you have made to your website in the last 2 years has NOT made it more user friendly. It used to work quickly and efficiently, but now it can take 10 seconds to go from one page to the next. That might not sound like too much but if you are searching for several different and new products that time adds up too A LOT OF MY TIME to find the clothes I want to buy. And I found this when I lived in Langley, BC and in Oshawa, Ontario and was working using different internet providers so it’s not my internet it’s your website. I love your clothes and have worn them for over 2 decades. With the new formate I can be searching and have to weed through the plus sizes. I’m sure the plus sizes find it troublesome cause they have to weed through much smaller sizes and would find it more time efficient to just search through their own sizes. Anything you can do to speed up the search time would be greatly appreciated!!

    My two cents on your current unfriendly website! I looked for an email address for the company but none could be found so I’M HOPING this gets to the management at the company so they can tweak the website so it’s more time efficient while searching for your products people want to by and I’ve bought a lot of merchandise from your company on the Canadian and American websites over the last two decades. So here is hoping this message gets to the techno whiz kids in IT so they might be able to help this weary customer

  • Bill M. says:

    Yesterday Sunday July 11 i went on line to purchase another pair of Columbia shorts, Mens Silver Ridge Cargo shorts, Waist 32, inseam 10″, color-Tusk. I saw they were on sale for $33.75 because it was Sunday and you were closed I had to call today Monday July 12th. I was told by a customer service agent that the sale ended yesterday! My gripe is that if the sale ended yesterday Sunday July 11, why wasn’t the Sale dates listed to let the rest of the world know that? Had I known, I would have ordered the shorts on the 11th. via on line. I have been a member for quite a while and own many Columbia products, Hiking boots, down jackets, shirts, Rain wear etc. etc.. If I would have been getting emails (as a long time member) regarding sales of your products I would have been aware of this particular sale item (the above shorts) and purchased them prior to the end (on a Sunday?) of the sale.
    I continue to want these shorts as I have the same pair and they are the most comfortable shorts, especially down here in hot and humid Florida. Thanks for your time and PLEASE put me on your mailing list!!

    We are regular customers; however, here’s a heads up: There’s manufacture deficit with a zipper. This lightweight fleece hoodie zipper’s pull handle connects by way of a separate metal bridge attached to its zipper base. Once detached, there is no way to fit a device to make the zipper functional. There are several Columbia lightweight, heavy and rain jackets/coats in our home. All these garments’ zippers seem to be more robust in design or come with double zippers. I’m willing to send you or take a photo of the defective parts. In my opinion this particular zipper’s design cannot withstand common usage.

  • Evelyn Pirozzi says:

    I purchased your jacket, 217 0317 02931, XL 1238 1706171, and was totally delighted with it. Now that the end of the winter season is upon us. I decided to wash my jacket before packing it away. I read the direction that you have tagged inside the jacket. I unzipped my hood, no problem, cleaned out my pockets and zipped closed. Turned on my washing machine, cold water, gentle cycle, and proceeded to wash the jacket. After the washing I placed it on a hanger to dry. After drying I zipped on the hood, no problem
    This is were it all went wrong. Opened the first zippered pocket, fine. Went to open the second zippered pocket and found it melted shut and the seam stitching to be damaged. Inside zippered pocket works quite well. Needless to say because of the damage to the one zippered right side of the jacket I am extremely disappointed in your product.
