Face the conditions head on in the light and compactible Headwall Jacket. Boasting active insulation with great warmth for its weight, this jacket moves moisture away from the body and simultaneously shields you from harsh, cold conditions with its combo of superlight 20-denier NanoPro® stretch MemBrain® fabric, Primaloft® Silver insulation and a lightweight AirExchange lining. This jacket’s weather protection is fully locked down with a seam-sealed construction and water-resistant zippers.
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.
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. In 2014 we look forward to celebrating our 40th Anniversary with you, our dedicated fellow Marmots.
