PERFORMANCE WITH A CONSCIENCE
Here at Columbia, we know a thing or two about tough mothers. And while we’re driven to innovate by our chairman Gert “Ma” Boyle’s axiom “It’s perfect—now make it better,” we also strive to be good stewards to Mother Nature. That’s why we created a line of high-performance, eco-conscious jackets Ma can be proud of.

WHAT ABOUT PFCs?
Infographic explaining What about PFCs?
Number 1

FORM STRONG BONDS

The carbon-fluorine bond found in PFCs treatment is one of the strongest bonds known to man.
Number 2

USED IN WATERPROOF MATERIALS

Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment allows otherwise permeable materials to repel water.
Number 3

DON'T BREAK DOWN

PFCs don’t break down readily in the environment and have been found to be bio-accumulative.
No PFCs intentionally used in these jackets
Conventional rainwear uses a fabric on the outside that is laminated to a thin waterproof membrane. The outer fabric requires a PFC-based Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment to cause water and dirt to bead up on its surface. However, PFCs are bio-accumulative in wildlife and humans and persist in the environment. In spring 2016 we introduced OutDry Extreme technology without any additional outer fabric, eliminating the need for PFC-based DWR without compromising performance.
