Back in the 1970's, two students from California were on an Alaskan glacier project and decided to start a mountaineering club. Five decades later, Marmot has grown quite a bit, but what hasn’t changed is their commitment to designing high-quality performance clothing and equipment for extreme environments. From GORE-TEX rain jackets to all-season Tungsten and Limelight tents, the company is at the forefront of outdoor innovation. The Minimalist and Precip are two of the top rain shells in the industry, and the brand’s insulators are in a class of their own. With a selection that includes cutting-edge sleeping bags, hiking backpacks, and waterproof MemBrain gloves, any mission with Marmot gear is sure to be a success.
