Kaspar Tanners rope apprenticeship was completed, the three-year as journeyman in Germany also ended. Switzerland had Tanner again - and Tanner had Switzerland. Endless mountain worlds, endless possibilities. In the Dintikon, one hour northwest of Lucerne, Kaspar Tanner nevertheless approached it contemplatively and founded a rope factory. Without knowing that he had already laid the foundation stone for one of the best-known premium outdoor brands of our time in 1862.
The MAMMUT had taken its first steps, but had not yet found its name. Tanner's company initially remained focused on ropes, on safety, and from the 1940s onwards developed better and better mountain ropes. A red control thread in the rope became an early trademark, if the quality of the products was to be confirmed, the associated seal would serve as a seal of quality. On this seal there was a mammoth. The next step to their own identity was done.
Fidelity? Intention? History. The company MAMMUT was finally born, developed further over the years and expanded its product portfolio step by step. Ropes remained, Burial search devices, High-tech clothing, Climbing equipment, Backpacks and Shoes were added. A single brand, the complete feel-good and safety package for excursions into the mountains. That is MAMMUT today. After the first jackets and trousers with Gore Tex membranes had already been released in 1978, the premium manufacturer devoted itself to innovation from then on. Together with the Swiss textile manufacturer Schoeller, MAMMUT developed the first Softshell trousers ever.
The drive? People who want to explore the mountains and go beyond their borders, to provide the right equipment. This is how the Eiger-Extreme-Collection was created, which equips you for trips to the high alpine as well as for ski tours and ice climbing. Innovative materials against extreme situations. windproof. Hartshell. Softshell. Down. MAMMUT gives you all this - and never said goodbye to the safety idea from his early days from the company DNA. Special Avalanche backpacks with Protection Airbag belong to the collections today as well as the easy to use Barryvox avalanche detectors and Avalanche probes.
MAMMUT's idea is to offer you everything you need for intensive encounters with nature. To equip you both for ski tours and for climbing or hiking trips in the high mountains. Keller Sports gets in.

If steep rocky canyons form all around, deep canyons open up, high peaks are immersed in intensive white, MAMMUT products really feel at home. This is when all the high-tech materials come into their own. Seals of quality are one thing, experience of those who need to know, the other. Therefore, MAMMUT equips extreme mountaineers like Dani Arnold or Marek Holecêk, extreme skiers like Nadine Wallner or climber Caro North with its equipment, which all carry out product tests under extreme conditions. And innovative all-round materials also do no harm in everyday life and on excursions in the city or park. MAMMUT does not only develop jackets especially for the city, the brand also keeps its designs so elegantly restrained that you only stand out positively in urban everyday life.
Enjoying nature without advocating it is not an option for MAMMUT. After all, we can only admire the beauty of torrential mountain rivers and snowy slopes as long as someone stands up for them. MAMMUT products therefore concentrate on production processes that are as clean as possible and keep emissions as low as possible. Thanks to bluesign® system, harmful substances do not even find a place in the supply chain and the company is expanding the proportion of its products with the seal for environmentally friendly production and responsible use of resources.
