Marmot is an American outdoor clothing and gear company that was born in the spring of 1974 under the name Marmot Mountain Works. The oldest customer of GORE-TEX in the world's outdoor market, Marmot originated from a mountaineering club formed by two university students while on a school Glaciology project. The name 'Marmot' refers to a group of highly social, large ground squirrels that live in mountainous areas. To become a Marmot, you originally had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. In the Marmot Club, everybody was President. Over the next few years, the original Marmot Club duo began making prototypes of down products in their dorm room. Over 40 years later, Marmot is a worldwide brand known for their quality apparel and excellent outdoor equipment.
