The only sound you hear as you float through the dry, quiet powder is the sound of your buddies whooping for joy on the other side of a stand of tamarack trees. You grin contentedly knowing you'll be warm and dry for as many laps as your legs can handle when you're wearing the weatherproof Marmot Men's Tamarack Jacket. Made for in and out of bounds skiing and snowboarding, this winter jacket is crafted from waterproof breathable 2-layer MemBrain® fabric. It is seam sealed and constructed with water-resistant pockets to keep the elements out. Vent extra heat on a climb when you unzip the underarm PitZips™ and leave the zip-off storm hood at home on sunny spring days. While it is not insulated, it is Zip-in compatible so you can connect this waterproof shell jacket to a Marmot fleece jacket or insulated jacket (only the Cauldron Jacket or the Approach Jacket are compatible) for extra warmth. Reinforced elbows bounce off branches without a snag to be found and Angel-Wing Movement™ gives you a full range of motion so this coat doesn't expose any skin when you lift your arms. From spring ski tours in Desolation Wilderness to lift-served lines at Alpine Meadows Resort, the Marmot Tamarack Jacket for men will expertly block wind, snow and rain to keep you dry. Is it just you or do those trees seem extra happy today?

Great jacket
January 07, 2010

I love this jacket. I have tried on many other shells and liked this one best. It seemed to weigh less than the others. Fits true to size. I have a North Face Fleece that zipped in perfectly.


January 18, 2011

This is a great jacket; however, the website did not rate it's warmth. It is more of a shell, which allows for a zip in jacket but did not come with a zip in jacket. I need to wear a fleece underneath for added warmth.

Perfect shell
February 05, 2012

As one reviewer pointed out, need fleece layer for colder days, but perfect with single cotton layer, especially if dealing with any wet weather. Well thought out in terms of pockets, collar height. Can't wait to try it out on spring-ski days.

Pros: Great design

So far so good
March 21, 2011

Like others have said, great fit and quality so far. Good looking jacket with warm pockets and a great hood. Looks like a casual jacket. The only cons are stiff chest pocket zipper and unnecessary arm pocket. One more thing is the picture of the black jacket is wrong. It is navy blue with white marmot lettering.

January 23, 2009

I bought this jacket sight unseen and was worried it might be too flimsy. Before it arrived, I went to a local store and checked out the Rubicon, Troll Wall, Alpinist, as well as Arc'teryx, North Face et al and felt a bit better...though I was still concerned 'cause those jackets cost a lot more. When the Tamarack finally came, I was psyched. Feels more substantial than a shell with no lining. And the Membrane fabric feels plenty sturdy. Pockets are great, outer pockets have waterproof zips. The hood is for real with a solid visor, big enough for a helmet but fully adjustable. Overall, a very well constructed shell. The option of zipping in fleeces is a bonus. Also I agree with the previous post. Great fit for a tall guy. Can't attest to durability yet, but will post again in a while. Great deal for the price paid ($140). NOTE: Altrec has the wrong pic up for the Eclipse/Tempest(colors are wrong) Go to Marmot website for correct photo.

Solid Marmot Product
February 20, 2012

I bought the Tamarack looking for a new ski coat for an annual trip to CO. I have always liked Marmot and think they make a quality product with good materials and good finishes. I wanted GoreTex but didn't really want to pay GoreTex. The Tamarack seemed a good compromise at the time. Their waterproofing has worked fine without issue so far. Fit is good. I'm a male 5'10 175 and I went with Med. Fit is tailored/athletic but not tight. The cut leaves room for layering without being too baggy. Marmot's angel-wing arm cut is perfect for active use. Warmth is adequate with layering for colder temps. It wears like a shell, but has a thin liner that insulates some. It took 10 deg days fine (and I get cold). I have not tested waterproofing extensively in rain, so I can't fully rate its waterproofing. Several days skiing in snowy conditions presented no issues. The coat does not feel clammy with high aerobic activity. Overall a very good product for the cost and I am very happy with Marmot's look, fit, and quality.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value, Cons: small zipper pulls tougher for ski gloves

Great all around hardshell
May 10, 2011

I have a lightweight shell for hiking/backpacking, but the Tamarack is my rain shell for everything else -- car camping, wood chopping, around town wear. It's designed for snowsports, but I chose it because I have a long torso and wanted to cover some of my butt, which most lightweight shells just don't do. It's a bit of overkill for a summer rain shell, but I really appreciate the beefy bill, cuffs, and that it doesn't get soggy and sticky in a downpour. My R4 Patagonia fleece (med) almost completely zips into the medium Tamarack, but I've never taken advantage of that. If you like secret pockets and multiple configurations, you should like this jacket. I would like to be able to zip out the snowskirt for better ventilation sometimes, but when it's cold or windy its much nicer than cinching the drawstring. I got the black because it was the only available color, but even though it didn't look as sexy on the webpage I'm glad I did because you can wear it anywhere in town and not look like a dork.

Very nice high quality shell
December 16, 2010

I've owned this shell for about a year and would purchase one again in a second. It's a high quality piece of clothing that looks and performs great. The sleeves are a bit long but that depends on your body type.


Singin' in the rain...
March 01, 2010

Love it. Kept me dry in the messiest of downpours. The Dri-Clime neck lining and sleeve ends are a nice touch, as are the pit zips. I found it to be plenty breathable. Hood has good coverage, but the read velcro adjustment in place of the drawstring doesn't allow for quite the fit adjustment many might like. The fit is just right for layering over a lighter fleece or sweatshirt. Definitely a great jacket for the money.

Excellent Jacket and Great Customer Servive
January 05, 2010

This Jacket is great, I love how it fits and how warm it is. The customer service department is easy to work with and very nice.


Awesome Jacket
February 05, 2010

I am very pleased with the jacket. I am 6'4", and the XL fit me perfectly. Comfortable jacket that keeps the rain at bay. Nice, sturdy zippers. The ability to zip in a fleece is a great feature for cold weather. Great pockets...I like the extra sleeve pocket in addition to the Napoleon pocket. The quality of materials and construction is excellent.


January 12, 2011

This is a great jacket! I pair it with my North Face fleece and it certainly keeps me warm. I ordered a small and the sleeves are a bit long, but I'm 5'9" so I guess that can be expected.

Awesome Jacket!
January 09, 2009

Great Fit for a tall guy! sleeves extra long. comfortable, warm and great looking. works well with Reactor Full Zip Jacket (Zipin Fleece) although Reactor not as long in the sleeves -bit disappointed with that. otherwise very happy!


excellent brand

Great ski shell
January 12, 2011

I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. It is a perfect weight and very versatile. He wears it by itself on warmer days and with fleeces on cold days. He loves the fit and the soft collar. The hood has a pull in the back so he can have good peripheral visibility. It seems quite durable, although he hasn't had it very long. He wishes it had an ipod pouch so you can thread your headphones inside the jacket, but that appears to be the only disadvantage. He is about 6 feet tall and has very long arms and a Large fit perfectly. Shipping was very quick and product was delivered as expected.

Very great shell

The tamarack is perfect
January 20, 2011

I recently purchased the tamarack, my first hard shell, and can't be happier with my purchase. Living in Chicago, we get the wind and the precipitation, this jacket has done its job and some. In 20 degree weather with wind chills in the single digits, I layered with a full zip light weight fleece and felt nothing. The snow and sleet beads up and rolls off. Below zero wind chill is expected this weekend, time to really test this bad boy. Lastly, this jacket has some room, but isn't boxy. Layering is easy, comfortable and not bulky. If you're in the market for a lightweight hardshell thats tough as nails give the tamarack a go.


awesome buy
January 03, 2011

First marmot jacket I've owned and the best jacket I've ever owned. The fit is excellent and the rain sheds off it.It is warm for most midwest winter days but you can zip in a liner for the really cold ones. Can't wait to take it skiing. Would buy this again in a second
