What is Columbia OutDry?

Outdry is Colombia’s version of Goretex. It is used in shoes, gloves and clothing to create a breathable waterproof layer between the elements and you. The advantage of Outdry over other waterproofing is that it is bonded to the outer layer to remove any air – which in turn stops water from accumulating anywhere.

Colombia Outdry is used extensively in their products and can be seen almost everywhere. Below are some examples of their best Outdry products.
