Marmot was born in a former grocery store in Grand Junction, Colorado USA in the spring of 1974, opening as a rental and retail shop under the name of Marmot Mountain Works. Our original gear was targeted at climbers and mountaineers that needed products for expedition use they could depend on. From small beginnings 38 years ago, we have grown and expanded our line to encompass multiple product categories, and are now distributed in nearly 60 countries worldwide. Our goal, just as much now as when we started, is to design product that is authentic, innovative, technical and works in the real world. It's just now our world's much bigger.
In every area of business practice we engage in, we passionately seek the highest level of quality, performance, sustainability and value. We craft professional quality outdoor gear, born from the experience of working mountain guides and instructors. Inspired by the alpinist spirit of adventure to search and achieve in a harsh world, our products are simple, appropriate, dependable and damn good looking.
