Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Basis of Presentation and Organization
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the management of Columbia Sportswear Company (together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, the "Company") and, in the opinion of management, include all normal recurring material adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position as of September 30, 2021, December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, the results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. The December 31, 2020 financial information was derived from the Company's audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. A significant part of the Company's business is of a seasonal nature; therefore, results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for other quarterly periods or for the full year.
Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company, however, believes that the disclosures contained in this report comply with the requirements of Section 13(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Principles of Consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Columbia Sportswear Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Estimates and Assumptions
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with 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 condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from these estimates and assumptions. Some of the more significant estimates relate to revenue recognition; allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable; obsolescence reserves for excess, close-out and slow moving inventory; impairment of long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill; and income taxes.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Effective January 1, 2021, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which, among other things, removes specific exceptions for recognizing deferred taxes for investments, performing intraperiod allocation and calculating income taxes in interim periods, as well as targeted impacts to the accounting for taxes under hybrid tax regimes. At adoption, there was not a material impact to the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
