High tech activewear

Columbia Sportswear, global leader of active outdoor apparel, is ready for the rain with the spring 2012 collection. Innovative technologies Omni-Freeze, Omni-Freeze ICE, and Omni-Wick ensure that the the Columbia Spring 2012 Water collection keeps you cool, dry, and warm when it needs to. When you get caught in the spring rain, there's nothing more uncomfortable than the damp, sweaty feeling that follows. The Women's Summer Freeze Hoodie, $70, uses Omni-Freeze ICE to cool the skin as you sweat, while Omni-Wick moves excess moisture away from the skin. Other items include the Drainmaker Water Shoe, Drain Maker Short, and the Men's Tidal Cove Polo.
