Comments about Marmot Tamarack Jacket (Men's):
I purchased this jacket because I wanted something that I could use for when it gets cold, rainy or windy around home and that I could take to the mountains for XC and downhill skiing and mountaineering. This jacket fits the bill perfectly. It's comfortable enough to wear around home when you're chilly (I'm wearing it right now). I especially like the comfy micro fiber that's around the neck area and in the pockets.
As for the mountains, I took this jacket snow camping and ice climbing just last weekend and it performed very well. I will say that is isn't very warm by itself, but layering is a much better method for keeping warm anyway. I also have a Mountain Hardwear Sub-Zero Down Jacket that I am able to zip into this Marmot because they both use YKK zippers. The two made the perfect combo for snow camping, with the down keeping me warm and the Tamarack keeping the wind and snow out.
In a recent rainstorm I took the Tamarack out into a downpour for 15 minutes and it kept me perfectly dry, but I wasn't satisfied. I wanted to know if it was entirely waterproof, so I let it sit while wet for half an hour. Still dry. Then I took it into the shower (yes, with the water on) for about 5 minutes and finally decided that no water was getting through because my cotton shirt was still completely dry.
The only thing that I would change is to put the internal chest pocket on the right side instead of left so it wouldn't overlap with the outer chest pocket that's on the left side. This really isn't a big deal.
Overall, this is an amazing jacket and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to stay comfortable, warm and dry.
