Tough Luck. The job is filled. For now.

Thousands applied. Dozens interviewed in three countries. And finally, after scouring the planet, we hired two crazy people willing to give up life as they know it to become the next Directors of Toughness. To earn the privilege to test Columbia gear all around the world in the most unforgiving conditions we can find, candidates had to make it through some of the toughest interviews in the world as well.

Watch the interviews and follow the Directors of Toughness as they attempt to survive testing gear the Columbia way.

Thousands applied. Dozens interviewed in three countries. All to find two new Directors of Toughness to be sent around the world to test gear in the most unforgiving conditions we can find.
