Our Performance Fishing Gear™ (PFG™) utilizes special fabrics and features with the fisherman in mind such as Omni-Shade UPF™ Sun Protection fabric, PFG™ Venting, Convertible Sleeve Tabs, Rod Holder System, Secured Tab Collars, and the Columbia Comfort System.
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is a measure of the percentage of ultraviolet sunlight that reaches your skin. Omni-Shade clothing protects you by blocking harmful sun exposure. Your safety increases with the UPF. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a rating of UPF 30 or higher. Columbia Sportswear was the first global apparel producer to earn the organization’s seal of recommendation.
Omni-Dry® is our exclusive high-performance moisture management process. It’s engineered to keep the body comfortable and dry by drawing moisture to the fabric surface (wicking) where it can quickly evaporate.
