Since 1974, Marmot has manufactured performance clothing and equipment of the highest quality for lovers of the outdoors, mountain sports enthusiasts and extreme alpinists. From its humble beginnings as a climbing club for active university students in America, Marmot has lived and breathed its passion for outdoor sports. From the very start, the aim has been to produce the best outdoor clothing and equipment in the world.
Marmot’s first products were a down vest, a down pullover, a down parka and a down sleeping bag. Within two years of putting together its first product range, Marmot started to collaborate with GORE-TEX®. This makes Marmot the longest standing of GORE-TEX®’s partners in the outdoor industry.
In 1986, Marmot yet again set a new benchmark in extreme technical clothing with its Alpinist expedition jacket and, by doing so, simultaneously created a real classic that continues to be extremely popular even today. In addition Marmot has ceaselessly developed its own fabrics and materials, such as, for example, the extremely high-performance, waterproof and breathable Marmot MemBrain®.
More than ever, Marmot seeks inspiration from professional mountain guides and athletes like Stefan Glowacz to develop products that are capable of withstanding the rigors of nature.
