Marmot started as a club, the brainchild of mountain-loving misfits and free-thinking skiers, climbers and campers.
The Marmot Mountain Club was a place where everyone was welcome and all the members were president. Above all else, Marmots valued fun in the outdoors. That spirit of fun and inclusivity lives on. We still believe that if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.
Since 1974 years, we’ve been guided by a simple truth: Outdoor Fun fuels the soul!
Today by designing, testing, and sewing the clothing, tents and sleeping bags that get us all outside, we're all trying to live up to the free-wheeling, go-your-own-way, who-cares-what-people-think attitude of the early days. We go outside because it’s the best playground we can imagine. It’s a place to be creative, express yourself, and escape from the sameness of everyday life. We do what we do because we think this desire to get out and be wild is in everybody.
Up and Under is the store for Marmot outdoor clothing and sleeping bags in Cardiff and our shop has been working with Marmot for as long as we can remember. Our range includes classic products such as Precip Eco Waterproofs and much more.
The Marmot 8000 Meter Mitts are designed for epic high-altitude adventures. They've been made with waterproof and windproof Gore-Tex fabric that's breathable and packable. There's also a removeable PrimaLoft 700-fill-power-down mitt for extreme warmth and moisture-wicking, and a 3-dimensional DriClime® lining that keeps your hands safe from the elements. A Durable carabiner loop helps with accessibility and won't interfere with your harness, ropework, or ascenders, and leather-reinforced palms increase durability and last longer.
The men's long sleeve Aerobora Shirt by Marmot is a great packable, lightweight and breathable shirt, whether you're off out trekking or taking a quick trip to the local brewery. This shirt will keep you comfortable, protected and ready for whatever comes your way!
The Men's Arch Rock Convertible Pant from Marmot gives you options - they're great for hiking, camping, or those who are perennially indecisive. Articulated knees, a crotch gusset, and an elasticated waistband makes these hiking pants easy to wear under a backpack belt or with a harness, and UPF 50 keeps you protected when the sun comes out midway through the day.
Head for the hills, trails, and mountains in the performance-ready Arch Rock Shorts. The abrasion-resistant nylon can handle the jagged branches and rough rocks you might encounter, while the stretch construction and inseam gusset allow for plenty of mobility when you need to sidestep an obstacle. You'll feel good wearing these pants too, since they are also made with bluesign®-approved fabric, meeting the standards to conserve resources and reduce environmental impact.
Marmot's Avant Featherless Hoody is both warm and durable, made with 75% recycled loose-fill fibres that feel just as warm as 700 fill power down, but still perform when wet. This hoody will keep you warm on your next outdoor adventure without feeling bulking or adding any extra weight to your pack.
The Basic Work Glove by Marmot is ideal for winter hill walking, easy mountaineering, and warmer weather skiing. Alternatively it works great as a smart yet functional glove for use in town on nippy winter days. The Basic Work Glove uses tough leather making it very rugged and durable. It has a Driclime wicking lining to keep your hands dry and pre-bent fingers for dexterity.
The Connect Liner Glove by Marmot is a great choice for any cold weather or mountain activities, pair them with your favourite Marmot glove for added warmth and shell protection. Wear this liner glove during high-output ascents or in shoulder seasons, then pull a shell over it when conditions get cold or wet.
The Marmot Ether DriClime Hoody can handle whatever the day throws your way, whether it's rain, wind or sun. The DriClime Bi-Component lining wicks away sweat while this versatile shell keeps wind and water at bay. Stuff it into its own pocket and toss it in your pack if the day gets too warm.
