Whilst the vast majority of skiers and snowboarders look mainly to the likes of North America, Scandanavia, Germany and France for outdoor clothing's big brand names, Switzerland has a number of fine winter sports companies that are popular not just amongst the Swiss but across Europe and further afield.
The likes of Mammut, Mountain Force, Odlo and Kjus have carved out fantastic reputations for themselves.
Kjus and Mountain Force are relative newcomers to the scene in comparison to the great histories of Mammut and Odlo. Indeed, in the case of Mammut, it's a genuine Swiss outdoor-gear institution, not only creating clothing but also a vast range of snowsports gear and equipment.
