Mammut has established a strong reputation as one of the leading alpine brands in the world. From ropes, slings, helmets and hardware; to mountaineering boots, technical clothing, packs and sleeping bags, Mammut makes high-performance climbing and outdoor equipment for the toughest adventures. Even as an expansive, leading brand, Mammut’s origins can be traced back to a small, specialist ropemaker in Switzerland. In 1862, Kaspar Tanner began making his own ropes, after finishing a 3-year apprenticeship and spending a few years in Germany honing his craft. He soon moved to Lenzburg, built a covered ropewalk for all-weather production and in the 1890s, brought his son Oscar into the business. This family run company, with a passion and commitment to building quality ropes, was the basis for the Mammut brand.
Based in the spectacular Squamish, BC, OnSight began designing and building technical sewn products in 1994.
Founded by a climber and mountaineer, OnSight’s first products were built primarily for the local mountaineering and rock climbing populations. The initial product line was composed of rock climbing slings, safety tethers and bags designed for climbing ropes, chalk, and crampons. In relative quick succession, a line of more elaborate items evolved, including mountaineering backpacks and stuff-sacks.
In 2003, OnSight introduced the first line of sustainable travel and storage products, to fill a recognized need for high quality, well-designed travel products. Thanks to the company’s technical sewing expertise, innovative designs, attention to quality control and extensive knowledge of recycled plastic (PET) fabrics and fittings, many have become classics in their categories and where possible 100% of materials and fabrics are produced from recycled materials.
