Columbia technology working for you!
Omni-Shield delivers protection from the outdoors where you least expect it but need it most. This coated fabric resists all liquids below 170 degrees F from absorbing into the yarns and staining the garment (without any effect on the feel of the material). The fabric itself will also dry 3-5 times faster than untreated fabric, without holding moisture like a conventional fabric, meaning it stays lighter even when its wet. Featured in sportswear and footwear where its water resistance and stain protection defend against the elements, Omni-Shield keeps you prepared even when you’re not.
