Columbia Sportswear’s Omni-Shade® clothing protects you from damaging UV radiation by blocking the majority of the sun’s harmful rays, so you can stay out longer. Omni-Shade blocks Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays (UVA and UVB), helping to prevent sun burn and long-term skin damage through tight weave construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology.
Unlike SPF (Sun Protection Factor), which is a measure of sunburn reduction from sun block, and does not indicate any protection from UVB rays. UVB rays are much more harmful than UVA, and are present even on cloudy days. Omni-Shade provides protection from both UVB and UVA rays. Like sun block, Omni-Shade is given a numeric value to indicate its level of sun protection. Unlike sun block, Omni-Shade does not wear off. Your safety increases as the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) increases, and several levels of Omni-Shade protection are available: UPF 15, UPF 30, UPF 40 and UPF 50+. It’s like sunscreen, but you don’t have to reapply.
All Omni-Shade fabric carries The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, given to sun-protective fabrics that have a minimum UPF of 30. You can read more about The Skin Cancer Foundation here: http://www.skincancer.org/

Columbia’s commitment to innovation runs throughout our entire product offering, and helps set us apart from the competition.

Omni-Wick® is the ultimate moisture-management technology for the outdoors. Its superior wicking properties move moisture away from the body and enable perspiration to evaporate quickly. During physical activity, increased body temperature causes perspiration (you know: sweat). Normally this results in damp, clammy, and uncomfortable clothing (not to mention unattractive). With Omni- Wick clothing, moisture is quickly wicked up into the fabric, and away from the wearer’s skin. The moisture spreads out across the surface of the fabric where it quickly evaporates. This wicking/evaporation process keeps the wearer cool and the clothing dry. You stay dry, which helps regulate temperature, prevent chafing and keep you comfortable all day. Work up a sweat without getting all wet.
