About Columbia Sportswear
Founded in 1938, Columbia Sportswear Company has grown from a small family-owned hat distributor to one of the world's largest outerwear brands and the leading seller of ski-wear in the United States. Columbia's extensive product line includes a wide variety of outerwear, sportswear, rugged footwear and accessories. Columbia specializes in developing innovative products that are functional yet stylish and offer great value. Eighty-year-old matriarch Gert Boyle, Chairman of the Board, and her son, Tim Boyle, President and CEO, lead the company.
Columbia's history starts with Gert's parents, Paul and Marie Lamfrom, when they fled Germany in 1937. They bought a small hat distributorship in Portland, Oregon, and named it Columbia Hat Company, after the river bordering the city. Soon frustrated by poor deliveries from suppliers, the Lamfroms decided to start manufacturing products themselves. In 1948, Gert married college sweetheart Neal Boyle, who joined the family business and later took the helm of the growing company. When Neal suddenly died of a heart attack in 1970, Gert enlisted help from Tim, then a college senior. After that, it wasn't long before business really started to take off. Columbia was one of the first companies to make jackets from waterproof/breathable fabric. They introduced the breakthrough technology called the Columbia Interchange System, in which a shell and liner combine for multiple wearing options. In the early 1980s, then 60-year-old Gert began her role as "Mother Boyle" in Columbia's successful and popular advertising campaign.
The company went public in 1998 and moved into a new era as a world leader in the active outdoor apparel industry. Today, Columbia Sportswear employs more than 1,800 people around the world and distributes and sells products in more than 50 countries and to more than 12,000 retailers internationally.

I chose the gremlin, which appears to be a gray color on my screen. However, it's really a forest green and not the color I would have chosen.
When I pulled it out of the package, I found that it was made of lightweight fleece material which in no way resembled my other Steens sweaters. It did not lie flat at the side seam and I found that the material of the pocket interior was missized but sewn in anyway causing it to pull. Also, not enough material was provided for the width. I can easily zip shut my other Mens Small sweaters but this one would have needed four more inches of material to allow the zipper to be closed.
I checked this one against my other Steens and found that the country of manufacture had changed as had the collar tag. It is now a blue and white label, not the traditional black and white tag. It is marked "China". The tags in my other Steens are marked "Vietnam".
I can only assume that when Columbia changed its manufacturer, it also changed its quality standards. I returned the Steens sweater the same day I received it and I will never buy another one if the quality is not returned to the product.
By the way, the Amazon return process was quick and easy. It included free shipping on the product return.
