Check in my closet and I bet 50% is Columbia. The shoes I wear each day, for the most part, are Columbia and they are five years old. Much outdoor wear is Columbia as well.

It might be a mega company but I think they offer some long lasting quality products.

I will be interested in what they do with the new fabric.

Sorry, but Jockey still wins on the briefs........... (Not a boxer kinda guy.)
