Details

The Girl's Variant Hooded Sweater is where 100% Fleece and 100% Nylon come together in a fusion of insulation and flexibility.

This is insulated outerwear for action heroes. Weighing in at well under a pound, lightweight, ultra-warm Thermal R™ Eco insulation protects your core, while Polartec® Power Stretch® in the sides, back, and sleeves delivers unheard of flexibility for an insulated garment


Technology

POLARTEC® : THERMAL FABRICS

The primary insulation layer among experienced outdoor enthusiasts for nearly two decades, Polartec® fabrics are available in a variety of unique textures and weights designed specifically to enhance performance in a variety of environs.




Thermal R™ is Marmot's proprietary family of polyester insulations specifically engineered to meet various needs from sleeping bags, to garments to gloves. Mid loft, excellent warmth to weight, resilient loft, and durable.




 

Polartec® Alpha® is a new state-of-the-art synthetic insulation that banishes the need for impervious down-proof fabrics by offering a rare combination of lightweight warmth and true breathability in a "puffy" style garment.
 

What is it?

Polartec® Alpha® is a new concept in synthetic insulation focused on unsurpassed thermo-regulation. Unlike conventional synthetic insulations Polartec® Alpha® is a knit material that offers excellent stability and superior durability without the need for scrims or tightly woven fiber proof lining fabrics.

How does it work?

Its unique knit structure allows for the use of highly breathable lining fabrics which permit body heat and moisture vapor to move through the insulation. This air permeability allows for warm air to move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration creating a more even distribution of warmth with-in the garment.

 

What are the benefits of this technology?

High breathability allows unrestricted movement of moisture vapor
Dries 20% faster than conventional synthetic insulations
Extremely versatile much more comfortable in a much wider range of activities than conventional synthetic insulated garments.
Highly durable knit structure allows the use of highly breathable lining fabric for maximum air permeability.

 


Polartec® Power Stretch®
Moisture and high relative humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec® Power Stretch® keeps the skin dry through three complementary mechanisms:
      1)  The fabric is highly breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor.
      2)  "Touch points" on the fabric inner surface draw moisture. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric where it spreads rapidly for evaporation.
      3)  When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton.

In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska's Juneau Icefield on a school Glaciology project. It was there on a glacier that the idea of a Marmot Club began. The name 'Marmot' refers to a group of highly social, large ground squirrels that live in mountainous areas.

To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was President. Most of the other rules dealt with a collegiate fascination for bodily functions.

 

Throughout that summer and over the next two years, Eric and Dave also began making prototypes of down products in their dorm room. Their first products were a down vest, a sweater and a parka and, later, three down sleeping bags. The warmest bag, the PIKA (now known as the CWM) was rated at -45 degrees F.

In the winter of 1973, Eric did an ascent of the Grand Teton in Wyoming with Tom Boyce of Grand Junction, Colorado. The following spring, Eric and Dave joined Tom in Grand Junction where they rented a 100 year old stone building near downtown and opened a rental and retail shop under the name of Marmot Mountain Works. They taught cross-country skiing in the winter to get by. Thus, in the spring of 1974, Marmot the company was born.

That fall, Tom was climbing in Peru where he met famed adventure filmmaker Mike Hoover. A few weeks after his return, Tom received a call from Mike. He was calling on behalf of 20th Century Fox who were filming a movie called The Eiger Sanction with Clint Eastwood, and needed 108 very puffy jackets. "No problem", said Tom, "we were working on that when you called." Well, they weren't, but they then did. Within a week, the Marmots had designed the Golden Mantle (very puffy jacket). Marmot was now in the movies. It also had its biggest order to date.

In 1976, another meeting would change the future of Marmot when Eric met Joe Tanner of W.L. Gore & Associates. Eric was one of the first in the U.S. to see a new concept in outdoor performance fabrication called Gore-Tex. He was intrigued, and within a couple weeks had sewn prototype sleeping bags using the new Gore-Tex fabric for field testing. He and Dave proceeded to spend seven nights in a commercial frozen meat locker comparing bags with and without the Gore-Tex fabric as well as testing the bags under fire sprinklers. They liked what they saw and immediately changed everything in the line to Gore-Tex fabrications. Today, Marmot is the oldest customer of W.L. Gore in the world outdoor market.

Marmot has grown quite a bit since our humble beginnings in 1974, but one thing has never changed; our commitment to designing the highest quality performance product.
