3-Layer GORE-TEX® Pro
Designed for the most extreme conditions outside, the newest generation of GORE-TEX® Pro
products delivers uncompromised durable waterproof protection, with up to 28% improved
breathability. Constructed of a new, patent pending, 100% ePTFE based multi-layer membrane
system these new PRO fabrics are the most durably protective mountaineering hard shell ever.

2-Layer GORE-TEX®
This 2-layer construction used for the GORE-TEX® products is designed for a wide range of
outdoor activities. A specific GORE-TEX® membrane is bonded to the outer material and
protected on the inside by a separate lining. The separate lining ensures better wearing
comfort and versatility.

GORE-TEX® Active products
Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Active fabrics are built for extreme breathability and
ideal for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day activities.

PACLITE® Product Technology
Paclite® product technology is the ideal solution for hiking, golf, travel and other activities
where space and weight are critical. A protective layer on the inside of the GORE-TEX®
membrane makes a separate lining unnecessary. The result: minimum weight and pack volume.

performance with long term durability. With solid 10, 000 mm waterproofness and 10,000 mm
breathability Guardian ensures comfortable long lasting weather protection.




Softshells Technology



Polartec® NeoShell®
With its exclusive membrane technology, Polartec® NeoShell® engages convection
to move moisture vapor away rapidly. Even at extremely low levels of pressure,
air flows in and out of the fabric. This pulls the moisture out to help keep you drier
during high-exertion activities.


Polartec® Alpha®
Polartec® Alpha® is a new concept in synthetic insulation focused on unsurpassed
thermo-regulation and breathability. Unlike conventional synthetic insulations Alpha®
is a woven material that offers excellent stability and superior durability without the
need for scrims or tightly woven fiber proof lining fabrics. Its unique woven structure
allows for the use of highly breathable lining fabrics which permit body heat and
moisture vapor to move through the insulation away from the body. This unrestricted
movement of moisture vapor allows these garments to be worn in a much wider range
of activities compared to conventional insulated garments.


Polartec® Power Shield®
Polartec® Power Shield® fabrics are the next generation of technical outerwear, the soft shell.
This clothing concept goes beyond traditional 2-layer systems – which feature fleece insulation
and a waterproof/breathable shell – to a single layer that protects against all but the worst
weather conditions and delivers extended breathability, abrasion resistance and stretch to
enhance your outdoor adventure.


M1 Series
m1 softshells provide the hightest level of water resistance and warmth, best for
intermittent aerobic activities in cold and wet conditions.


M2 Series
m2 softshells offer a great balance between weather resistance, breathability and
thermal protection, excellent for a wide range of aerobic activities in moderate conditions.


M3 Series
m3 softshells are the most breathable softshells in the collection, best for high aerobic
activities in drier, milder conditions.

Polartec® Power Stretch® fabrics feature body-hugging 4-way stretch and are very breathable.
They keep you dry when you sweat and provide warmth without weight. These are the most
versatile outdoor and fitness clothing fabrics available today. Many of the fabrics feature a
proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: the durable, smooth outer layer is wind-
and abrasion-resistant; the soft inner layer pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you dry,
warm and comfortable. Other fabrics in the series feature compression stretch which can
improve performance and reduces the chance of certain types of stop-go injuries. Climbing,
running – even taking on an Ironman competition – are easier when your clothing doesn’t
inhibit freedom of movement.


Polartec® Power Dry® High Efficiency™
Polartec® Power Dry® High Efficiency™ fabrics are designed to keep your skin dry when you
sweat. All fabrics in this series feature a bi-component knit construction that uses different
yarns on either side of the fabric. This creates two different surfaces: one that is optimized
to move moisture away from the skin, the other to dry quickly.


thermal r™
thermal r™ is Marmot’s proprietary family of poylyester insulations specifically engineered to
meet various needs from sleeping bags, to garments to gloves. Resilient, mid-loft, excellent
warmth to weight, and durable.


Pertex quantum®
Pertex quantum® is the lightest fabric Pertex makes. It is a true featherweight at around
30 g/m2. They use the finest yarns available to them with the maximim thread count.
Pertex quantum® stands its ground and shows the best strength to weight ratio. Tear strength
and seam strength are good for its weight and it can easily be used in shell jackets and
withstand the abuse of hardcore use. It’s a gear freak’s dream.


Down Defender
Marmot Down Defender is an insurance policy for your down garments. This specially treated
highly water-resistant down offers an extra level of moisture protection for down garments that
might be exposed to wet environments. Marmot Down Defender helps prevent down from
clumping and losing its loft when exposed to water, thereby greatly increasing its ability to keep
