Excellent GlovesConsidered to a liner gloves, but too good to hide under another pair! They look great, and the quality of construction is excellent. They are soft to the touch, and feel very warm for the weight. the elasticated cuffs are a great feature too. Recommended! Read More »
Paul1978 - 28th September, 2012
Marmot continue to innovate at a tremendous rate and are THE brand for serious mountaineers, climbers, adventurers and skiers. Started in 1971 by two University of California students, Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley, Marmot began by making prototype products in their student digs. Originally making down vests and sleeping bags, down gear has been Marmot's special area of expertise, and this heritage continues to today. Marmot were also one of the first brands to use Gore-Tex fabrics when they first appeared on the market in 1976, and they are the oldest customer of Gore-Tex in the outdoor clothing, and equipment market.
Recently, Marmot have created a real stir with their revolutionary technology MemBrain, one of the lightest waterproof and breathable fabrics out there. From the ground breaking Mica jacket, to utilising Membrain in their helium bags, Marmot have created a new wave of lightweight breathable products that continue to astound with their weight. Marmot's PreCip fabric also offers value based performance to a growing number of outdoor professionals and enthusiasts alike. Marmots expertise extends way beyond clothing, with a fantastic range of tents, sleeping bags and packs, all tested to destruction and built to withstand the worst mother nature can throw at you.
Marmot has you covered whether you need to rely on their down heritage with sleeping bags and jackets, their innovation with Membrain and Precip, their design prowess with an expedition tent for a trip to the Alps or just a lightweight waterproof jacket for a summer trip to the lakes.
Marmot TechnologiesMarmot have been at the sharp end of technology advancements for over 40 years and have pioneered new and exciting tech not only through their own research and development but through partnerships of Gore-Tex, Polartec, Pittards and Primaloft. These big names seem to come up a lot in the outdoor industry but that's a good thing as it shows that brands such as Marmot trust these external manufacturers enough to combine their products with alternate fabrics and technologies. Marmot have happily developed their own tech and arrived at some ground breaking discoveries and fabrics such as Membrain Strata, Precip and Thermal R insulation. The next few steps will try to give you a better understanding of their technologies and what each name does, hopefully we'll be able to help you link the icons with the tech so in the future you won't have to read the boring stuff again..
