The hard-working Columbia Bahama II men's long-sleeve shirt keeps
you comfortable long after you've brought in your limit. Designed
specifically for the needs of anglers, the shirt is made of a
lightweight, durable nylon fabric that dries fast should you get
splashed. The mesh-lined cape vents at the back shoulder,
meanwhile, enhance the airflow, helping keep you cool in the
hottest conditions. Finally, the shirt offers built-in Omni-Shade
UV protection that keeps the sun off your back until you're ready
to come inside. Other features include two big chest pockets that
offer plenty of room for small gear, button tabs for rolling up
and securing the long sleeves, and your choice of several sizes
and colors.

About Omni-Shade Technology
Columbia's Omni-Shade clothing protects you from damaging UV
radiation by blocking the majority of the sun's harmful rays,
letting you stay out longer on sunny days. Unlike SPF (Sun
Protection Factor)--which is a measure of sunburn reduction from
sunblock and protects you from UVA rays--Columbia's Omni-Shade
products are far more versatile, combining a tight-weave
construction, UV reflectors, and UV absorbing technology. These
features not only prevent sunburns and long-term skin damage, but
they also protect the wearer from UVB rays in addition to UVA
rays. UVB rays are much more harmful than UVA, and are present
even on cloudy days. Plus, Omni-Shade doesn't wear off. Instead,
your safety increases as the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF)
increases. Several layers of Omni-Shade protection are available:
UPF 15, UPF 30, UPF 40, and UPF 50-plus. It's like sunscreen, but
you don't have to reapply. All Omni-Shade fabric carries the Skin
Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation, which is given to
sun-protective fabrics that have a minimum UPF of 30.

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 skiwear 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.
