Omniheat was introduced by Columbia Sportswear over a decade ago. When it was introduced it was a revolutionary way of keeping people warm in the outdoors.

By reflecting one’s heat back to them, the need for bulky insulation is reduced. Since its introduction Columbia has iterated on the design of Omni Heat multiple times, bringing out Omni Heat 3D, Omni Heat Black Dot, and now Omni Heat Infinity.

What is Omniheat Infinity?

The gold standard for reflective warmth, Omni Heat Infinity uses more reflective metal dots than standard Omniheat. This makes it more thermally reflective without sacrificing breathability. The overall consumer benefit? “You stay warmer longer” according to Senior Director of Innovation at Columbia Haskell Beckham.

Why do you need Omniheat Infinity?

Added insulation at a competitive price. That is what it boils down to with Omniheat and specifically Omniheat Infinity. Columbia also say that due to the layout of the dots and the products that use this new, eye-catching, gold lining have increased breathability which is a vital feature.

Our Top Omniheat Infinity Picks!

Without a shadow of a doubt for us, our top pick for an item that features Omniheat Infinity is the Columbia Labyrinth Loop, this jacket comes in both men’s and woman’s with and without a hood. The jacket delivers exceptional warmth while performing comparably to jackets twice its price. It uses slightly more bulky and less packable synthetic insulation than its Rab or Mountain Equipment counterparts but paired with Omniheat Infinity this is a formidable jacket for Autumn winter!
