Description

A three-in-one jacket that has the versatility and winter-proofiness to get you through the whole season.

Week-long ski trips, spring camping, and every pesky winter day in between are no problem for the versatile Marmot Tamarack Component Jacket, because it includes a zip-out insulating liner jacket for the exceptionally frigid or mild storms. For the coldest days at the resort, the shell and liner jacket team up to provide an impenetrable fortress against the cold and snow. But around town, the liner jacket can be worn by itself while its Thermal R insulation holds in your body's heat despite the chill.
  • Waterproof breathable MemBrain 10 2L shell with fully taped seams repels falling snow, dripping chairs, and slushy falls to keep you dry and comfortable throughout the winter
  • The Thermal R synthetic insulation in the liner jacket gives you a barrier to keep your body heat close and features sewn-through construction for durability
  • The liner jacket zips into the outer shell for amazing versatility throughout an entire snow season
  • A removable hood blocks out the storm and provides additional versatility in changing weather, while its laminated brim doesn't flap around in the winter winds
  • Brushed collar and shoulder lining feel smooth on cold, dry skin and enhance cold protection when wearing only the outer shell
  • The powder skirt, adjustable drawcord hem, and hook-and-loop cuffs help seal out the cold and snow during magnificent crashes or harsh storms
  • Reinforced elbows resist abrasions while skiing hard or camping out in the cold bush
  • Hidden internal media pocket and mesh pocket (outer shell) keep your cell phone and goggles close so they don't get frosty and unusable

The jacket is solid in every way. The sizing is accurate, it looks and feels good and it definitely keeps you warm. Don't hesitate, get it.

Worse sewing everywhere

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought it one month ago. When I got it, I feel much disappointment about the sewing. A photo has attached and showed parts of the faults. Because I am an aboard customer, I can not return it easily unless I spent a lot of extra money to make a international return, but has to accepted it with so many faults and regret.

Great Jacket with Zero Design Flaws

Awesome jacket. The size chart is accurate. I ordered my typical size large and the jacket fits great. The liner jacket zippers do fit under "those triangle things". I had zero problems with the drawstrings. As far as the hood is concerned... Really, you let velcro beat you.

Bottom line: The jacket fits great and doesn't have any design flaws.

Nice jacket with a few design flaws

I just bought this jacket and I wanted to share a couple "design flaws" that I hope will help Marmot improve on this concept. Overall, the jacket seems to be warm and that's great! However I have noticed a few things.

First of all, the zip in liner that comes with it has two zipper heads that are supposed to fit under those triangle things that come together right under your jaw when the shell is zipped. However the zipper heads don't actually fit there - they come out and kind of rub up against your neck. That's annoying.

Secondly, the drawstring pulls that control the snug fit around your hips have a plastic nub that goes through a hole into the shell's pocket. When first attempting to adjust it, the plastic nubs pulled right off! I had to super glue them back onto the elastic cord.

Third, the way that the hood is designed with the two sided velcro is kind of strange. There a zipper on the back which is nice, however when putting the hood on or taking it off, I noticed that the hood tends to come away from the velcro. Plus, realigning the hood flaps back into the two velcro'd strips is difficult. Any reason why you didn't just put a snap on each side? I have a jacket by another brand that does this...and it works great.

Overall a nice jacket but could be greatly improved upon.

6' 175lbs. Considering the comments about sizing, would a L be too snug? XXL too large?

Responded on

I'm the same size and want to know the same thing. I'll probably try a L.

@Coop (from Dr. GrisGris), I bought this jacket last year in a large and the fit is perfect. Not too much room for a soft shell with the liner jacket zipped in, but that wouldn't be necessary, as it is sufficiently warm with the liner jacket zipped in. A mid or heavyweight base layer is all that might be needed on the coldest of days. Only complaint I have is the hood is not quite large enough for a helmet to really function properly. I can't zip the jacket fully closed at the neck without the velcro chin attachments coming apart. Otherwise, I love the jacket. The liner is even suitable to wear alone on cool fall/early winter days...

What is the temperature range for this jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

I estimate that it would work in temperatures no lower than 30 degrees Farenheit. That should make it adequate for many winter days. Hope this helps.

With a mid to heavyweight base layer and the liner jacket zipped in, I was comfortable in temps in the mid teens last winter in Colorado. Add a fleece vest and I'd bet you'd be comfy warm down to or even below 0 F even if it's blowing...

Marmot Ranks High But Fits Snug

I've been wearing Marmot coats for years but what I am finding is their trend is toward snugger fitting clothing. No, I'm not getting larger - ;-). I confirmed with Marmot that if you've always worn a Large, you now should order an XL and so on.
The main complaint I have with the Tamarack and Bastione jackets is the armpit zipper in the liner sleeve that will occasionally scratch a knuckle if I'm not careful while putting it on. The zipper is a completely useless feature.

Marmot has gone snug

It's not that I've gotten larger. I am the same size. It's because Marmot's component coats are designed snugger than they used to be. I confirmed that. So an XL fits in the body more like a Large, and so on. I am bummed because I otherwise love Marmot's products and bought an XL Tamarack Component Jacket to replace one with a broken zipper. The old one fit wonderfully, the new one doesn't permit enough room for winter clothing, like a sweater or even heavier long-sleeved shirt. Otherwise, the jacket is made well, just on the snug side.
