Wonderful multi-purpose pants
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I used to have a pair of ski pants and a pair of winter hiking pants. Both were old and I decided to try these as a replacement. I couldn't have found a better pair. They are light at first sight, but don't be fooled...they are WARM. I skied in Whistler in 40 MPH cold gusts and was just fine with just leggings under them. Great pants. Durable, waterproof, warm, breathable.
How does this fabric differ from the...
How does this fabric differ from the Palisades pant? It says that one is 2 layer Gore-Tex. Will they be similar in waterproof/breathability, or will the Palisades be much better? Also, what would be the difference in terms of durability?
Personally between these two pants I'd opt for the Marmot Palisades Pants since they're of slightly higher quality materials.
The Gore-Text 2-layer (Palisades Pants) is going to having slighting higher waterproofing than the Marmot MemBrain (Tamarack Pants).
MemBrain is Marmots proprietary membrane for laminated fabrics. When comparing these two, there are slight differences giving the Gore-Tex an advantage (in the lab) but I think you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference (in the field).
The Palisade pants are also unlined where as the Tamarack pants have a lining. I'd opt for a layering sytem instead of insulated pants.
If these were for me, I'd go with the Palisades. Hope this helps!

Im 6' 2" 180lbs
My exact waist size is 33" so I'm right on the edge between M and L. Are these sized to fit over cloths? I don't wanna get a medium and have them tight
If you're planning on wearing these over cloths then I'd put you right at a large, and if that doesn't work we can always exchange them for you. We do have one of the best return policies out there!
Weak seam... but otherwise great!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
These pants are great. They're waterproof and quite breathable so tackling a bit of side country during a resort day is no problem in these. These are however 2-layer, so they're a bit heavy for back country riding (in my opinion at least). I'm 6' with a 29" waist and went with the small. It fits my waist and still provides enough length in the legs (these do run a bit long). Also, the fit is regular so there's no restriction of movement while skiing/boarding. I like the scuff guards around the ankles as well since it keeps me from ruining my pants against snowboard edges and the occasional clumsy kick from my boots.
One problem I ran into however was with the laminated seams. I've never had a problem with laminated seams but the inner right pocket came undone. I didn't want to wait around for a warranty replacement so I just went to my local fabric store and bought fabric super-glue. Fixed the seam just fine and I haven't had a problem since.
Overall: great resort and side-country pants! Hopefully you don't encounter the same problem with the seam.

how long is the inseam on the medium and large pants? i'm 6' tall and my waist is a 32.

Will you be getting any more size medium in stock? Wish I could have snagged a pair before they were out of my size.
Currently we have the Mediums in Black in stock.
Hope it's not too late!

I just got these pants delivered. They are listed in the insulated ski pants section, but they really feel like they are only a shell and won't provide much warmth. Anyone have experience with these pants keeping you warm in around 0 degree Fahrenheit or below?
If not which marmot pants would you recommend?
In zero degree weather you need to insulate with layers. This is an outer shell layer and should not be used as a baselayer or mid layer. It's job is to shed wind and moisture. So to directly answer your question, they will keep you warm as part of a layering system. If you wear these and skivees alone you will get cold instantly.
I like the fit. But size small is still...
I like the fit. But size small is still too long for me. I usually wear 30' inseam. Do you have any recommendation?
Depending on how much too long they are for you you could think about bringing them to a professional tailor. You might be able to have them take an inch or two off the bottom, and possibly even bring the gaitors up too. This is a just a suggestion though, and you might be better of trying to find a pair of pants that are sized in waist and inseam.
Got these pants last winter, and they've been great for skiing and hiking. They are plenty warm (with a good baselayer when it's cold), the fabric is durable, and the waterproofing is excellent. I purchased a small (I'm 5'7", 150lbs), and they fit well, although I do have to agree with others that they run a bit long. Hardly a reason to pass these up. Overall, excellent value and excellent quality.
I actually love these pants as far as functionality is concerned...great waterproofness, insulation and just the right amount of pockets. However, like the previous review stated, they do fit a bit large. I'm 6'1", 200 lbs with a 32" waist and I got a large to be on the safe side but they're rather baggy on me. Accordingly, I recommend going down one size with these. As far as the belt loops are concerned, you can actually feed a belt through the opening where the adjustable tabs are. Initially it didn't make sense to me the way the tabs were set up, but once I figured out where to feed a belt through I was more satisfied with this product.
satisfied, not thrilled
-Runs large (I'm 6ft/185 w/ a 34 inch waist and the large fit too big)
-Only 2 belt loops (both on the front - is it too much to ask for another two loops on the back?)
Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase for the price - I doubt I'd pay more than 200 for them
Great winter pants!
Bought these for my husband for Christmas. He loves them! Got a size large for his 35" waist. It was a bit big but able to cinch up the waist and they fit perfectly, especially with a baselayer. He also loves the dark gray color. He wears them for skiing and playing in the snow with the kids. The pants keep him very dry and warm.
Marmot Taramac Pants
I really enjoyed being able to test these pants out. They are warm for a shell, very flexible, and the fabric is high quality. The fit is true to the size and a nice slim looking adult skier pant. The only downside is different colours would be nice, but the black I was able to test was sleek enough to make the purchase a must. I decided to not get the pants only because I was looking for something with more colour. The performance and comfort for skiing in these pants will be missed.
I just bought this pant in an XL to use as an outerlayer for skiing, touring, etc. Fit was OK with the XL.. I am 6' tall, 210 lbs.. I got to product test this last week in Mammoth, in BLIZZARD conditions-60+ mph winds, blowing snow, etc., on Tuesday,11/23/10 it was a WHITEOUT, and I had to go out into town for food, etc....The pants protected me from all of it...nothing got thru, and I wasn't uncomfortable when hiking thru town in the blizzard for well over 1 1/2 hours. The next 2 days were bluebird and pow...even in the direct sun-with a pair of black pants on, I was completely cool, comfortable and DRY!!! This is good gear!!
I bought Marmot ATV pants a few years ago,...
I bought Marmot ATV pants a few years ago, and LOVE them. They're discontinued now, and, confusingly, Marmot has at least 3 things that on a website *look* identical:
1. "Scree" -- definitely not the same -- they're very lightweight (I saw them in a store); the ATV pants were okay in summer but okay in winter too -- warm, but breathable.
What current Marmot pant is closest to its ATV of 4 years ago? The answer might be Tamarack, Tioga or something else. Thanks!! Charles B. K
Actually, the Tamarack pant is a hard shell pant. It is made out of 2 ply Membrain. It is a pull on pant with an ankle zipper and internal gaiters. If you're looking for a soft shell pant similar to the ATV go for the Tioga, it is a 7.1 oz double weave and is warmer than the Scree which is a 6.3 oz double weave.
Fabric felt nice and durable, but it was way to big. i am 5'5" but the small was about 7-8 inches too long
