Marmot began as a climbing crew. They climbed glaciated peaks with one another for years, until one day they decided to take it one big step further. The first prototypes of Marmot’s now sophisticated, elevated product range began in a dorm room – where the founding members were playing around with down products. Their first sleeping bag is actually still in their repertoire to this day!
Their ambitions became a reality when in 1974, Marmot opened its very first brick and mortar space. Marmot’s founders continued their love affair with the outdoors and soon made the connections that they needed to construct the brand that we know today. In 1976, their relationship with W.L. Gore began, immediately sparking Marmot’s use and love of Gore-Tex fabric.
Today, Marmot is renowned for heat retentive outdoor gear and clothing that looks classic and works to keep you warm in even the most extreme conditions. Marmot ski clothing is specifically designed to protect you as you adventure out into the cold.
