Wardrobe Must Haves from Columbia Sportswear

I am a huge fan of anything from Columbia Sportswear. I’ve always found that they make great quality clothing, their products are always trendy and stylish and are priced right.

This summer my husband and I each received a Columbia Sportswear outfit.

For me

I received an Inner Luminosity™ tank in blue, a pair of Luminescence Capri in black, a Mach 38 Hybrid Jacket and a pair of Vulk n Vent bombie slip on shoes.

I was so impressed with every item I received.

The tank has a solid, built in bra top. At first, I thought it would be too flimsy but it offers excellent support. I really like the straps on this tank and how the material flows.

The capri pants I received are extremely soft. I love the length and the fit. I plan on wearing them well into fall. These are a great workout pant but can easily be worn as everyday wear.

The hybrid jacket is absolutely amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever liked a jacket as much as I like this one. It is stretchy in all the right places and warm. It’s perfect for cool evenings. The fit of this jacket is very flattering. It’s form fitted and looks great on. The other thing I love about this jacket is that it folds down to almost nothing. I am going on a weekend getaway at the end of September and only bringing a carry-on. This jacket is coming with me and will not take too much room in my luggage.

The Vulk n Vent Bombie shoes are super cute and comfortable. They are extremely breathable so perfect for summer and early fall. They are stylish and easy to slip on and off. I found these shoes a little on the large side. I would recommend going half a size smaller in these.

For my husband

My husband also received some great pieces.

The men’s Titan Peak Shorts he received fit him perfectly. They come with a great belt, have SPF 50 sun protection and are water and stain repellent. I was very impressed on how well they washed and dried. I decided not to put his shorts through the dryer and noticed they air dried in about 30 minutes. These are great everyday shorts but would also be a great pair of travel shorts.

The men’s Trail Flash Half Zip long sleeve shirt is a great shirt for cooler evenings. The material has Omni-Wick so it will keep you comfortable when running outdoors. The best part of this shirt is that it is reflective. Shine any lights on this shirt when it’s dark out and your shirt will turn neon bright.

My husband also received a great pair of shoes. He’s been wearing the men’s version of my Vulk n Vent shoes. His shoes are lace up and have a vented footbed. He’s been wearing them to work almost daily.

We are so pleased with our Columbia Sportswear summer products. I would recommend any of these pieces.

You can purchase Columbia Sportswear products online and in many stores across Canada and the US. Many of their summer products are now on sale, there’s no better time to stock up!

I’d love to know, what are your favourite outdoor activities.


  1. I agree, Columbia makes great quality products, and I love the styles too. My husband, daughters and I all love Columbia clothing and shoes – we each own several pieces and are happy with them all!

  2. I love the jacket but the colour looks awful with my skin tone, so I’d get something darker. I also love your shoes because they remind me of Converse shoes. You’ve got the perfect summer outfits.

  3. I love the look of that jacket on you. They have amazing winter jackets and snowpants. I have to check out their other stuff
