Marmot has grown since 1977, when they tested the then-new Gore-Tex fabric under fire sprinklers and slept in industrial freezers to study the insulation of their prototype down sleeping bags.
Marmot is the oldest customer of Gore-Tex® in the outdoor market, and that partnership continues into 2014, Marmot's 40th year. Marmot has also been at the forefront of down garment and sleeping bag construction since 1973. They are bluesign® partners, denoting their commitment to environmentally- and socially-responsible textile manufacturing.
The company has not changed much since it was founded by a group of friends and outdoor enthusiasts. It is still all about the highest quality performance product.
