Mammut is a swiss brand founded by Kaspar Tanner in 1862 in Dintikon. The brand will be given the name Mammut only in 1943
Nowadays, the group Conzzeta owns the alpine brand Mammut and has branches all over the world. From Germany to Japan through Norway or USA, the small family company grew big and is now one of the leaders of mountain gear.
Dedicated entirely to the service of the high mountains, Mammut is a high-end brand whose sustainable products are of the utmost quality. Over the past few years, it has initiated important changes in order to reduce its environmental footprint. The company is committed to eliminating the use of polluting chemicals, particularly those used to make clothing water repellent. It is committed to using recycled materials, to using only organic cotton and responsible wool by scrupulously controlling their origin, while ensuring that the working conditions of those who make its products are ethical.
Besides developing its products in partnership with professional skiers and in collaboration with guides and rescuers, Mammut has them try out the products in intensive testing phases. This is how Mammut's avalanche safety equipment is put to the test to validate its reliability and practicality. These products include the airbag system that is installed on Nirvana backpacks. Capable of being triggered in the event of an avalanche in order to remain on the surface and avoid being buried, it can be transformed into a survival bag. Practical, it is removable and can be transferred from one bag to another (Removable Airbag System). It can also be activated and deactivated to suit the weather conditions. The array of Mammut equipment dedicated to freeride, ski touring and splitboarding enables confidence on the virgin powder slopes. Thus, and of course the materials are not all that is required. Ffor each off-piste trip, you have to prepare carefully by consulting the weather forecast, the avalanche risk report, the mountain guide office, etc.
