Staying warm in frigid winter conditions is always a challenge, with icy winds and sub-freezing temperatures threatening to steal your precious body heat. Making your alpine climbing and ski touring experience more enjoyable, the Marmot Men's Tullus Down Jacket packs 600-fill down insulation within an easy-packing design. The integrated stuff sack comes in handy when you're tossing it in a touring pack on the uphill or approaching distant alpine routes.
The polyester ripstop shell retains lightweight efficiency, with a DWR treatment for moisture-shedding protection from light rain and snow showers. 600-fill down insulation packs exceptional warmth-to-weight, ensuring you're nice and toasty in winter weather. Marmot's Down Defender prevents damp, moisture-laden air and oncoming precipitation from compromising the down's heat-trapping abilities. In fact, Marmot claims this treatment allows down to remain dry for ten times longer and maintain 150 percent more loft than untreated down.

- Q & A
Great Fit - Great Price
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
Me: 5'9", 165 lbs., 32" waist, long arms.
I bought this jacket for daily 1.5 mile walks in 35 to 55 degree, sometimes very windy weather in Minnesota.
I'm not kidding myself that this is a jacket that I can wear when the weather gets too cold in Minnesota.
I originally was looking at the Marmot Zeus jacket but that jacket appears to flare out a little toward the bottom and that kind of looks like coats that elderly ladies wear.
I bought the Tullus in Medium and it fits me GREAT. The jacket is lightweight and doesn't restrict movement, and it keeps the wind out which is important to me because the route that I walk has zero protection from the wind in 3 directions. I walk at a slightly fast pace and have not overheated in temps as high as 53 degrees, nor have I been cold in 32 degree, overcast, windy weather.
As I mentioned, this jacket fits great. Marmot calls the fit of this jacket "Athletic" which means tighter at the shoulder and hem. I am toned, but by no means skinny and there is still enough room in this jacket for me to wear a sweatshirt or even a thin hoodie underneath. As I also mentioned, I have long arms; despite being 5"9" tall, I am 6' from fingertip to fingertip, so I'm a knuckle-dragger, and I usually have problems with sleeves being too short when I wear Medium sizes. The sleeves are perfect for me though and probably would fit well for people with regular arms also. I can't say what the sleeves would fit like if you have alligator or T-rex arms though.
This jacket also looks great; I chose black and it is not too shiny or too dull either. The collar can be worn down, up, or fully zipped up and each way is comfortable.
Overall, I would recommend this jacket for the conditions that I mention above, especially if you want to look good while staying warm. Props to Backcountry for the great price and getting it to me fast.
