Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Consolidation, Policy [Policy Text Block]

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Columbia Sportswear Company, its wholly owned subsidiaries and entities in which it maintained a controlling financial interest (the "Company"). All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates, Policy [Policy Text Block]

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from these estimates and assumptions. The Company's significant estimates relate to sales reserves, allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable, excess, close-out and slow-moving inventory, impairment of long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill, and income taxes.
New Accounting Pronouncements, Policy [Policy Text Block]

The Company adopted ASU No. 2021-10 (“ASU 2021-10”), Government Assistance (Topic 832): Disclosures by Business Entities about Government Assistance, effective January 1, 2022, using the prospective method of adoption. ASU 2021-10 increases transparency of government assistance received by a business entity by requiring annual disclosure of (1) the types of assistance, (2) an entity’s accounting for the assistance, and (3) the effect of the assistance on an entity’s financial statements. ASU 2021-10 was effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021. At adoption, there was not a material impact to the Company's consolidated financial statements.
Reclassification, Comparability Adjustment

Certain amounts in prior period consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to our current period presentation.
