THE HISTORY OF MAMMUT

1862
Mammut 1862 The Beginning

The beginning

After completing a three-year rope-making apprenticeship and working as a journeyman, mainly in Germany, Kaspar Tanner (on the far right in the photo) started work as a rope-maker in the Swiss town of Dintikon. This heralded the birth of Mammut.

1890

The Norwegian company "Fuglesangs Sønner",
founded in 1855, pro-
duced the first proprietary
sleeping bag in 1890.
It was later renamed
"Ajungliak A / S" and be-
came part of the Mammut Sports Group in 2001.

The company "Raichle" was founded in the Swiss town of Kreuzlingen by Louis Raichle. Mammut took over this company with over a century of footwear expertise in 2003. Since 2009, the footwear formerly produced by Raichle has been officially marketed as "Mammut".

The "Barryvox VS 68" was developed on behalf of the Swiss army. This avalanche transceiver significantly increases the chances of survival for people caught up in an avalanche and over the coming years it became a great success, with over 100,000 units produced.

1984

The Mammut Product Manager Albert Wenk worked with the Swiss textile specialists Schoeller to develop the first soft shell pants. News of the benefits of these pants quickly spread and even conservative mountaineers soon traded their wool pants for modern Mammut/Schoeller versions with the new quick-drying, windproof and breathable soft shell material.

1995

Technical, innovative, award-winning and "live" from the Eiger north face. Mammut Extreme marked the turning point from hardware brand to all-round supplier and made a name for Mammut in the clothing sector. The products still stand for excellent functionality and quality, developed in partnership with top alpinists.

The characteristic orange-blue color scheme has been retained. And despite the arrival of more colors in the meantime, Mammut has achieved something managed by very few other manufacturers before: identifying its brand through a color combination.

Mammut integrated the avalanche airbag system R.A.S. (Removable Airbag System) developed by the Swiss company Snowpulse SA in its proven snow backpacks. Specifically tailored to the needs of mountain guides and professionals, these systems offer customers the option of buying a basic model and then integrating the airbag system in other backpack models or volumes. The backpack can also be used without the airbag system in summer or around town.
