When the weather outside is frightful, somehow finding the perfect apparel for Christmas gifts is a victory! Living here in Canada the Winter weather can hamper us from enjoying the outdoors if we aren’t outfitted in the right gear. For over 70 years Columbia Sportswear has been making no-nonsense apparel and footwear to keep you WARM, DRY, COOL and PROTECTED no matter what.
My very first coat which was bought for the purpose of skiing was a Columbia Bugaboo which stood the test of time for over 10 years! This year, after looking at their line we simply had to include some of their products in our Holiday Gift Guide.
Part of the adera collection, the Aurora’s Glow jacket is a stretchable, breathable hybrid with side panels that wick, front and back panels that are insulated, zippered hand pockets and an exterior featuring advanced repellency. Perfect for any aurora type activity.
City cool and super warm! With its 550-fill TurboDown insulation, a split-dropped tail, cool lines, adjustable waist and faux-fur ring around your beautiful face the Barlow Pass keeps you warm, dry and protected in fabulous winter style.
We’ve added our patented thermal reflective technology to this classic winter Interchange jacket, delivering an even warmer winter weather fighter with layering options galore. The technical outer shell is waterproof breathable, with adjustability at the hood, hem, and cuffs, and the new zip-in fleece liner features thermal reflectivity, which reflects your body heat for warmth while maintaining a high level of breathability. Each piece works as an outer layer on its own during moderate conditions, or wear them together when you need the jacket’s full storm-fighting power.
Ideal for early morning runs, the Spacedye hoodie has wicking properties and 4-way comfort-stretch fabric for maximum mobility and performance. Part of the adera collection, this hoodie has open pockets, thumbholes and a drawcord adjustable hem. Every day is beautiful when you rise and shine in a Brilliant Reflection.
Don’t let the boldly flirtatious name and the faux fur fool you, these insulated boots are warm, waterproof and have a grip that just won’t quit. Rated at -25F/-32C, these cold-weather stompers are loaded with style and performance.
Inspired by the original Bugaboot, this boot has refined heritage details and a classic look, but doesn’t skimp on technology – it’s laced with Omni-Heat® thermal reflective lining and insulation to keep feet and toes warm and comfortable during long, active days in cold weather conditions. The supple waterproof oil full-grain leather upper and rubber shell create a protective foot environment while rugged metal lacing hardware lends durability and ensures a secure fit. You’ll stick to unpredictable terrain with a high-traction rubber sole that enjoys a challenge as much as you do. This version of the popular Bugaboot collection is distinguished by the waterproof corduroy details at the collar and tongue.
Express your alpine style with this classic pom-topped beanie. Cozy acrylic wool blend knit is lined with luscious microfleece and finished with a ribbed band to keep your head snug in wintry weather.
With an exceptional fit and the breathable, heat-trapping warmth of thermal-reflective technology, this performance beanie is crafted to keep you comfortable during dynamic activity in the cold.
