Columbia Acquires OutDry
Columbia Sportswear Co., Portland, Ore., has acquired OutDry Technologies S.r.l. from Nextec
S.r.l., Italy. OutDry® technology bonds a waterproof, breathable membrane directly to the inside of
a shoe's or glove's outer layer. It also inhibits microbial growth; retains insulation capacity;
and enhances fit and dexterity, according to Columbia.
