If you have a sporty/athletic child, he or she will feel right at home in the Columbia brand of clothing. Whether you're buying for school, home, or mountain adventures, Columbia has been a trusted brand for more than seventy years. The reason is simple - they make high-quality clothes that have been designed with the outdoors in mind.
All three of our daughters fall in the explorer category so this Portland-based brand is a family-favorite. You'll find excellent pieces for all-seasons including rashguards, tees, and hiking pants (that convert to shorts).
My eldest daughter - age 9 - is a strong runner, swimmer, and hiker. When she saw me perusing the Columbia website, she was quick to say, "These clothes are exactly my style." Indeed.
