Summary

If you have a Chicago winter this jacket will NOT do. If you have a Chicago summer this jacket WILL do perfectly.

Pros

  • Summer clothing
  • Wear everyday
  • Painting inside/outside
  • Rain
  • Liner jacket

Cons

  • Not a winter jacket

It's best to wear both jackets separately rather than having the liner zipped in because it blocks warmth/protection. Perfect to wear while painting inside/outside a house during summer and perfect on an 80 degree summer night.

My daughter did wear this when going skiing in March of 2012 (this year) and came back soaking wet in it.  Both the liner jacket and outer insulated jacket were soaked like they just came out of a washing machine. It took 3 dryer cycles on high heat for 2 cycles to dry it...and that's with the liner jacket zipped out of the insulated jacket so it could dry alone.  

It's good to wear while mowing the lawn because it provides wonderful protection from the hot sun too.

Embrace winter with the versatile Marmot Women's Tamarack Component Jacket. This multi-use system is literally three jackets in one: a waterproof and breathable storm shell, a synthetic insulated liner jacket and an all-conditions ski jacket when combined. The waterproof and breathable shell uses fully seam taped Marmot MemBrain fabric and is a great standalone jacket for fall, winter and spring wear. Functional features like the removable storm hood, powder skirt and easy-to-reach pit-zips give the Tamarack great ski jacket performance. The synthetic puffy liner jacket is a total bonus. The quilted insulation makes it a great low-bulk, versatile jacket on its own. When the insulated liner and shell are zipped together, the Tamarack becomes a go-to winter jacket. From town to resort, you will love the Marmot Tamarack Component Jacket for women.

When you need a mid-weight insulation piece for cruising around town, just pull on the liner jacket and you're good to go.
