Founded in 1974, Marmot was then known as Marmot Mountain Works. Tom Boyce, David Huntley, and Eric Reynolds came together to open a rental and retail store under the name Marmot Mountain Works in Grand Junction, Colorado. Marmot earned its name from the club that Eric and Dave began during their college days at University of California, Santa Cruz. 'Marmot' is a group of large, social squirrels that live in mountainous areas. Having made prototypes of down products in their dorm rooms, Eric and Dave knew they wanted to pursue their dream of making quality products for the outdoors. Marmot made it's biggest debut in Eiger Sanction, a Clint Eastwood movie. The Marmot team created over 100 puffy jackets especially for this opportunity. This opened the door to many more exciting orders, with more and more visibility. Marmot's commitment to quality performance products has made it go-to company for quality outdoor clothing and sporting goods.
