Columbia and Omni-Heat® technology
The evolution of warmth: Whether it's Omni-Heat™ Thermal reflective, Omni-Heat™ 3D, Omni-Heat Black Dot™ but especially the latest, Omni-Heat™ Infinity, Columbia's goal is to keep you warm.
What is Omni-Heat®?
Omni-Heat® heat-reflective technology helps to regulate your temperature by reflecting and retaining the heat generated by your body while evacuating moisture and excess heat. Aluminized dots attached to a breathable fabric improve heat retention and contribute to the body thermoregulation. The fabrics used for Omni-Heat guarantee optimal breathability. Omni-Heat is inspired by the technology of survival blankets.
Omni-Heat® Infinity technology and its benefits
Columbia's Omni-Heat® is the latest technology conceived by Columbia. It is designed to to fight against cold and is the result of over 10 years of research and innovation.
Inspired by the reflective technology used by NASA, this technology incorporates a set of small gold metallic dots to reflect and retain our body heat, delivering instant warmth while maintaining maximum breathability.
Benefits of the technology:
- Ideal for extra warmth and comfort in cold weather
- Columbia's best heat-reflective technology to date
- It gives you immediate warmth
- Highly breathable for optimum comfort
"I tested the down jacket during a 4-hour hike on Mont Ventoux starting from Mont Serein.
The jacket is top notch in terms of conception and design, it is comfortable and above all light while keeping me warm”
Omni-Heat® Reflective technology and its benefits
Improves heat retention: lightweight warmth reduces the need for multiple layers
Helps to thermoregulate the body thanks to its stitch construction that reflects body heat to conserve heat.
Guarantees a high level of breathability and moisture wicking.
