Eco-Friendly Rain Gear – Columbia Outdry Extreme Eco Jacket

The colder winter months have been bringing rain to many different parts of the United States and raingear has become a must for many venturing outdoors.

However, the chemicals found in these waterproof membranes have a difficult time breaking down readily in the environment. That’s why Columbia has developed the Outdry Extreme Eco Jacket, made from 21 recycled plastic bottles and technology that does away with harmful chemicals without compromising performance.
