Camplife and Water – Columbia Sportswear collections for an active summer [sponsored]
For this summer, Columbia has prepared two functional collections, full of patterns and rich colors, as well as utilizing a wide range of world-appreciated technologies to support summer outdoor activities.
Omni-Shade, Omni-Wick, Omni-Freeze Zero Ice™ or TECHLITE+ are the names of technologies that have been well known to Columbia Sportswear fans for years. For the SS22 season, the American brand introduces another technological innovation – TechLite Plush, offering the highest level of cushioning. Ultra-lightweight, responsive foam provides long-lasting cushioning, while the elevated midsole design improves foot roll from heel to toe, reduces hike-generated shock and increases comfort on uneven terrain.
For the SS22 season, Columbia is also increasingly committed to eco-friendly processes and the use of recycled materials. Eco-friendly solutions like Bloom foam and treads made from recycled rubber are already another trademark of this outdoor brand.
