Product Information:

Columbia Sportswear Company is a leading innovator in global outdoor apparel, footwear, accessories and equipment markets. When the Columbia name and trademark is used on a product, Columbia is telling outdoor enthusiasts the product they buy will live up to the quality and performance standards they have come to expect from Columbia Sportswear.

Along with success comes counterfeits, and Columbia Sportswear is no exception. Their products are frequently and openly counterfeited.

On just one China website, there are dozens of counterfeit Columbia Sportswear jackets, openly advertised as "fake Columbia Jackets" and "replica Columbia Jackets" with quantity discounts starting at 50 units, and in dozens of styles and colors. The counterfeit jackets had retail tags and displayed the Columbia trademark. These counterfeit jackets find their way to global marketplace websites and auction websites such as eBay, and by extension, unsuspecting buyers.

Warnings / Hazards:

The "waterproof breathable" "Columbia" jacket you see for sale on a website may look real, but you are likely to notice a big difference the first time you wear it in the rain!

At best, counterfeit workmanship and materials are sub-standard; at worst they can be dangerous. Many types of adhesives, metals and other substances are not intended for use with consumer products, but consumer safety is far from the minds of counterfeiters who simply make lookalike products at minimal cost.

Recommended Action:

Buy from authorized Columbia Sportswear dealers where you can inspect the product before you purchase, and return it if there are any problems.
