  • Marmot Pipeline Relaxed-Fit Jeans

    Let's face it, blue jeans are the de facto uniform of the Western World. That doesn't mean they're perfect – or at least they weren't until Marmot, masters of all things pants, decided to add a little boing-boing into the blue jean. Marmot's Pipeline jeans have a little Coolmax woven into the mostly cotton construction, […]

  • Marmot Alpinist Bivy

    Yea, we have seen the light! The fast and light, that is, and woe unto those who travel with too much crap on their back, for they shall wail and gnash their nasty teeth and beat their sunken chests. Go forth and get a bivy, we say. The Marmot Alpinist bivy is about as minimalist as […]

  • Marmot Evolution gloves

    As we come up on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin (and Abe Lincoln, coincidentally), what more fitting tribute can we make than to crassly commercialize it? Hence, the Marmot Evolution glove! The Evolution is a speedy little glove that weighs about as much as a Euro-teen bouldering queen, which is to […]

  • Marmot Alpinist Pro glove

    I have a bit of a glove fetish. I find a glove I really like, but eventually I become bored and a more exciting glove crosses my gaze. Love blooms, and soon I dump the old, fat ugly glove to move in with my new hottie. The homebreaker in this case is the Marmot Alpinist […]

  • Marmot Super Hero soft shell jacket

    Holy ground-dwelling weasel, batman! It’s the Marmot Super Hero soft shell jacket!
