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.

So far so good
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.

The tamarack is perfect
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.

Great ski shell
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.
