In Spring 2020, Marmot LLC is furthering its commitment to inclusivity with the addition of more sizing options throughout its garments, as well as consciously diversifying its marketing visuals to more overtly welcome people from all walks of life.
Marmot is dedicated to helping every outdoor athlete pursue their passion no matter their shape, size or stature. And to honor that core belief, it’s expanding its standard size system of XS–L in women’s and S-XXL in men’s by adding Plus Sized garments to the line, including women’s tops up to 3x and bottoms from 18w-22w.
“In addition to extended sizing and plus sizing, Marmot will be communicating our commitment to all body types by including a wider variety of athletes and adventurers in our photo shoots, sponsored expeditions and other marketing communications,” said Chris Harges, the Director of Brand. “It’s part of a deep commitment at Marmot to recognize that the outdoors is for everyone and to welcome passionate outdoor people of all colors, cultures, sexual preferences and gender identities.”
While Marmot will continue to grow this collection across its Men’s and Women’s Outerwear, Sportswear and Sleeping Bag lines in future seasons, initially there will be a total of 12 products with updated sizing.
For the Women’s Outerwear Collection, two current jackets will begin to be offered in more sizing options. For the Women’s Sportswear Collection there will be 5 new tops (a vest, LS shirt, SS shirt, and a hoody) and one existing top to receive expanded sizing (LS shirt), all to be available in XS-XXXL sizes. There will also be three existing bottoms in Women’s Sportswear with more sizes to choose from. And both a men’s and a women’s sleeping bag will have expanded sizing options.
