Marmot Tamarack Shell Jacket - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
Rated4out of5byfromDecent basic shellIt's an outer shell and it works for snow sports. The only issue that I have is the zip pits are completely open to the inside when unzipped. Many jackets have some mesh or something to keep snow and other foreign material out of the interior so that was kind of a surprise. I don't biff it all that often anymore so it's not a big deal for me but it's worth mentioning. Interestingly the velcro patches are smaller/skinnier and less aggressive than some other jackets I've had but they seem to work. It's actually just enough to keep things in place without being frustrating to pull apart. So it's not super secure if that's what you like but it works for me.

Rated4out of5byfromPerforms as advertisedBeen dreading dropping big cash on a waterproof jacket for all around winter use. This popped up on sale and I jumped on it, knowing how well Marmot takes care of its customers. I used it on a ski trip out in Montana and it performed very well. I never got wet, cold, or over-heated. The jacket is light enough to allow easy mobility; the one negative is the hood does not seem sized to fit over helmets, which is an odd issue with a jacket specifically sold as a winter sports jacket. Otherwise a great purchase!

Rated5out of5byfromPerfect all around jacketWhen I set out to find a jacket, I wanted something that could be used everywhere. My wife and I are avid hikers and all-season bike commuters and, in the winter, I ride on Mount Hood. After some research and hours trying on shells and jackets at REI stores, I decided on the Tamarack because of the length of the torso/arms, the vents, pockets, powder skirt, and waterproofing (a must for winters here). The fit is perfect. It seems that this year's design is made for people with athletic builds. I'm not very tall, but have small waist and broad shoulders and the medium fits perfectly. The arms allow for movement without pulling the jacket up and the torso is long enough to not be a problem when I commuting. Like with any other waterproof jacket with taped seams, this jacket does not breathe like a nice softshell. It does a much better job than my Precip, mainly because the nylon liner does a good job of wicking away any moisture that does stay inside. In hiking, riding, and biking, I have not had any breathability issues or condensation on the inside. Like most gear geeks, I like useful pockets. Though the geek in me thinks that one or two more external pockets would be nice, the pragmatist in me thinks the inside and outside pockets are perfect. The inside one is a strong mesh and perfect for stashing a phone. The shoulder pocket is great for lift passes. The side pockets are soft and very cozy. Like with the Precip, the Tamarack does an excellent job of keeping the rain and snow out. I've biked in rain and kept toasty and dry. So far, I have had no leaks or seepage. My only real complaints are the hood and velcro. If you do not zip all the way up, the top velcro rubs the shell. It would be nice to have a small flap to cover it. Since I use it for snowboarding and biking, it would be nice to have a hood that would allow for a helmet. With that said, the hood fits perfectly without a helmet and for a majority of the time, that is how it would be used. Since the hood unzips, would it be a lot to ask for a two hoods, one for riding and one for normal wear? Overall, this is an excellent jacket and, with proper layering, keeps me warm and dry.
