Marmot Launches New Collection: technologically advanced all-mountain performance line
July 17, 2019
Rohnert Park, Calif. —17 JULY 2019—For Spring 2020, Marmot LLC is designing its line from its roots with the launch of its technologically advanced all-mountain performance collection, designed for athletes at the pinnacle of outdoor sports.
Amongst other top-tier products, this offering will feature five alpine jackets, one 8,000-meter suit, two sleeping bags (one expedition & one lightweight backpacking), and an ultra-lightweight tent that barely breaks two pounds. Light and packable, these performance products provide a competitive edge to alpinists, climbers, mountaineers, skiers and other elite outdoor athletes.
“For 45 years, our Marmot designers and product engineers have been driven to create gear and clothing that helps outdoor athletes move better, go faster and climb higher,” said Chris Harges, the Director of Brand. “And we believe in the importance of continuing that genesis which is why we are so proud of this collection, which advances the three most imperative performance areas: Warmth, Durability and Speed.”
With an optimal combination of 3-layer Gore-Tex, Pertex® Quantum fabrics and Marmot’s EVODry waterproof-breathable technology on the outers, these products are some of the most Mountain Tough gear on scene. Using a new generation DWR water repellent coating that lasts the life of the garment, EVODry is an air permeable waterproofing system that’s made without pollution or harmful chemicals and is PFC-free, which means it won’t contribute to ozone depletion— making this collection the rare intersection of better performance and sustainability.
Pursuing its commitment to eco-consciousness, Marmot uses 100% Recycled Nylon Plain Weave, as well as sustainably-sourced RDS-certified down and synthetic-fill of 75% recycled content. To elevate the performance in all of its down-insulated outerwear, Marmot created a new type of insulation construction. Marmot’s Warm Cube technology body-maps down cube placements to provide additional warmth through maximizing insulative air pockets and insulation where your body needs it most.
