    Mythical warming powers.

    Perfect for fall hikes and winter walks alike, the Marmot Men's Zeus Down Jacket provides ultralight and packable protection from frigid temperatures. High-loft 700-fill down insulation locks in heat without the need for tons of bulk or weight, and it's treated with Down Defender to prevent moisture from soaking the down and ruining its insulation powers. Marmot also treated the outer fabric with a DWR coating to help it fend off light snow and rain. And when things warm up on the trail or you step inside out of the cold, this jacket packs into its own pocket for convenient storage.

    Great jacket, but sizing is off

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Looks great, was warm when I wore it outside in 20 degree weather for a few minutes with only a t shirt underneath. Sleeve length was great, but it was very snug around the torso. I have to return it and am afraid the large will have sleeves too long. I also tried a Patagonia down sweater and I think they seemed to be of about the same quality, but the Patagonia fit better and I will be keeping that one due to the better fit.

    Great for the price, but kind of puffy

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    I bought this jacket for a backing trip to Patagonia. I'm 5'6 140lbs male. I ordered the black small.
    Pros: It was so warm and had a nice feel to it. It is very light weight.

    Cons: The collar is a little bigger than I wanted and doesn't stand up all that great. I found the zippers to snag a little more than I wanted. The fit while not slim is athletic, but it is for sure a "puffy coat". I found it to be pretty puffy in the arms and shoulders. Ultimately I returned it and went with the Patagonia down sweater which while way more expensive just has a nicer fit, better collar, inside pocket, and didn't have as many problems with the zipper.

    First Down Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I finally broke down and purchased my first down jacket. I had talked with lots of friends and done quite a bit of research before I made this purchase. I am very happy with the jacket. It is very lightweight and fits me perfectly. I have used in in 60 degree weather and in 5 degree weather and loved it. I was wondering if it was worth the cost but after just a few times wearing it I was very happy with my decision. I highly recommend it!

    This jacket comes everywhere with me. It's my best fitting insulation piece and the Zues works well. The zippers are strong, hand pockets are in the perfect place and the jacket also has two giant pockets on the inside of the jacket, even big enough for a a 32 oz Nalgene.

    Perfect

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Got this for my dad for Christmas. He is 5' 8" and about 170 and the large fit perfect. I though the arms would be to long on the large and was worried about getting a medium as the waist would have been to tight. But thankfully the large was a perfect fit in the sleeves and the waist. The jacket looks really good and he loves it.

    My great down jacket review

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    So I recently purchased 7 different down jackets so I could wear and compare and select the one I liked best. This was my great down jacket review, not because the review was great, but because the breadth of comparisons was pretty extensive. The ones I compared were the Marmot Zeus, Marmot Tullus, Mountain Hardware Nitrous, Mountain Hardwear Micro Ratio, Patagonia Down Sweater, The North Face Trevail, and the Outdoor Research Tanscendent. I'll put comments on the others in the listings for each. The reason I selected these are that they all are basically medium-weight down jackets (not extreme light or heavy) and were comparable on the prices. Backcountry was having a sale and all these were marked down to between $123 to $160.
    What I wanted was a top layer jacket without a hood (don't use hoods very often). I generally don't use down jackets like these as a layer under anything because of their bulk. I prefer a synthetic for that. I have a huge down jacket with a hood for very cold weather. I wanted one that was less bulky and more suitable for activities.
    So the Zeus. The Zeus was a finalist. It was very comfortable and looks sharp. The one I had was black. It really looked good. It would look great in NYC in January (why doesn't anyone wear color in NYC?).
    Fit: It was one of the more bulky (puffy) of the jackets I looked at but was comfortable and wasn't so bulky that it restricted movement. The fit is regular and those who are used to athletic or trim fit may find it a bit larger than they are used to. But I thought it fit true to size. I have to get XL because of wide shoulders and long arms. The sleeves may not be long enough for guys more than a couple inches taller than me. The bottom of the jacket hit between the top of my pelvis and my hip joints. The fit looks good too. What I mean by that is that it doesn't look too square or too slouchy. I have a Marmot Quasar (ultra-light down) that is really square in the shoulders. As a result it looks kind of weird and pointy at the end of the shoulders. This one looks more natural.
    Comfort: The jacket is very comfortable. The fabric feels good and it is quiet when moving. The hand pockets are a bit forward but the openings could be a bit more angled. Neck and cuffs are basic but fine.
    I ended up returning the Zeus and choosing the Patagonia Down Sweater as it felt a bit warmer, less bulky and lighter (800-fill down vs the Zeus' 700-fill down). The Patagonia also had an internal chest pocket. But the Patagonia was $20 more.

    Toasty!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I would recommend this to anyone of my friends/customers, i really really love this jacket, i take it everywhere!! It totally works for most every situation and season, as long as you have a shell to cover it, you could go out in any season and stay warm!! I use this for both, my outdoor life, and my city life. It compacts into the left pocket and you can stow it for use anytime!! This coat is worth the price and will last you for a long time! Buy it and the only thing you will regret is that you didn't buy it sooner!!

    Nice material, roomy

    • Size Bought: Large

    I was searching for something sort of fitted to live under a hard shell in the more brutal days skiing in the Rockies and an all-around thing for warmth when packability and weight matter. This was on sale so I gave it a whirl. I returned it, but here are some observations if you are looking at the Zeus.

    I'll start by saying the materials are very nice. The nicest face fabric I've seen on a down jacket to date. I did notice that the down was unevenly distributed in the arms right out of the bag. I loved the stand-up collar and dreamed of its protection on blustery chair rides or hiking a nasty ridge. Because of the cut it would be a good piece if you're planning to put it over a few layers or to pull it out and be able to cover everything while or in a pinch. I suppose this depends on your body proportions of course. As Marmot has always, the fit is very roomy in the middle for me. I am always a Medium in Patagonia and Arc' (if that helps) but went with the large based on my chest measurement knowing that this fabric won't stretch with me and too little room is worse than too much. Having several pieces from Patagonia and Arc'teryx, two brands that I would say have the best, most active cuts to their jackets, this thing just looked like a Columbia. Straight down from the pits.

    The hardest thing about searching online is the fit so I will give you this - I'm 6' 180 lb, 43 at the chest and 33 at the waist ( narrowest part of my torso ). Going with Rab Microlight for a closer fit. Will update

    Warm. Great sizing. Very versatile

    • Size Bought: Medium

    Love this down jacket from Marmot. Keeps me very warm. Perfect size with a little added room to layer up beneath. Is pretty fragile tho. I definitely baby this jacket because even walking by a tree branch could cause a pretty significant rip. Also, I will occasionally notice a few feathers poking out from the jacket but it isn't a big deal. Wear hiking in the mountains or in town. Its a really great jacket.

    Purchased this for my lovely father.



    He wanted a super warm lightweight jacket and I recommended this one to him. Once he got it and put it on he didn't want to take it off.

    -Super light

    -Soft as can be

    -Warm in 20 degree weather

    -Blue is a good color that will go with lots of stuff

    -You can wear this walking around town or under your ski shell

    -Like that the pocket are zippered

    -The drawcord at bottom comes in handy occasionally.

    -My dad usually wears a medium in most tops and this jacket fit right.

    Crazy Warm

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    That is what my cousin wrote to me after he used it for few days. He has gone through many serious medical issues the past 2 years. He told me he is always cold, that he wears 2 sweatshirts and is still cold. Visiting his friends in the Chemo ward he broke a sweat. they asked if if he was OK and he said it is the first time he broke a sweat since his surgery.
    This is the most satisfying gift I have ever given.

    This coat is a must, warm and dapper!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL

    First, I'm a big guy. Second, I am a TNF guy through and through. With the TNF down coats, however, I have found them boxy and cumbersome. Even at my size I had to really cinch up the bottom to keep the wind from coming in, but when I do it made me look like a snowman or the Michelin tire guy.

    While Marmot as a brand is usually too small for me even in the XXL size, this coat fits perfectly. It makes my overall appearance look like I did when I was much younger.

    Very Happy...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Light weight, true to size. I'm ~5'11" and ~200-205lbs I bought a large and it is comfortably roomy... a medium would be a bit tight but probably would work for a trimmer look too... warm but breathable however you may quickly overheat at first, then stabilize. Usually that only happens indoors. I've worn it in both dry and humid climates and it performed great, in fact was better than expected. It compacts into its own pocket very easily. All in all, I'm very happy. My only complaint? I would have loved a chest pocket (either exterior or interior), but the side pockets are exposed in the interior of the coat and the top is open, so I use them as an internal pocket for bigger, smooth items that aren't likely to fall out (e.g. phone, papers, etc.).

    BC Saves the day

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this jacket for my sister (in red) and her fiance (in black) for Xmas. After receiving her jacket, I noticed there were black spots on the outside of the jacket. I exchanged the jacket for a black one and as usual it was quick and easy to get the issue resolved. Thanks BC.

    I've received the following feedback about the jackets.

    My sister says:

    "I love this jacket. It's comfortable, lightweight, and fits great. I would highly recommend, and would likely purchase other products."

    Her fiance says:

    I bought this jacket for a family member for Xmas and he had the following to say:

    "The jacket is light, wind resistant, and you don't need a lot of layers to keep you warm. Very pleased."

    Way too tight in torso & shoulders

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    This is a slim fit jacket, for certain. Disappointing... I am 5'-10" and 170 lbs, waist 34", trim and fit. I ordered a large. The torso is extremely snug and it is tight across the shoulders. A larger size will be too long. The sizing of this jacket is strange. Why so tight for a large? Be sure you are slim if you are considering this jacket. Not a good choice for a regular build. I liked the quality and look, but must return it due to poor fit.

    great

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    this jacket keeps me so warm while im doing anything outside, like snowboarding, snowshoeing, walking around downtown. this coat feels great and looks great.

    The King of Down

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have never been the biggest fan of down, the bulky look of it has always turned me away; but when I saw this jacket that was not the case. It is not bulky in the slightest, even though it has that 700 fill power, and is extremely light. I have long arms and a skinny torso and the large fits perfect; not to big and just the right length in the arms. I love that ability to tighten the waist and also the inner pockets are great for carrying stuff. This is my go-to jacket for driving and shoveling; keeping me warm, but also breathing when I start to heat up. The construction of this jacket is amazing, with the seams and sewing top-notch. I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a warm jacket, and also anyone looking for a nice down.

    Does this jacket have a pocket on the inside?

    Best Answer

    Hey Rob,



    The jacket does have an open pocket on each side. I've attached a photo of mine with a waterbottle inside of it. I wouldn't trust it to keep anything valuable, but could definitely stuff a hat or some gloves in there! Feel free to reach me at 801.204.4547 or cojohnson@backcountry.com. Best, Connor

    What temperature is this jacket good to?

    What is the best way to get the campfire smell out of this jacket? The label says to use a front-load washer only, I do not own one of those so trying to figure out the best way to clean this jacket.

    Is the 700-fill down goose?

    Best Answer

    Its duck down, but keep in mind when it comes down to duck vs goose down at the same fill power there is no real difference. Its really just marketing. You can get more higher power fill from geese but once you get a batch of 700 duck fill vs 700 goose fill its essentially the same thing. The only difference is duck will save you money since there is much more duck processing going on than geese. Again, the quality difference is a marketing myth, and thats why many manufacturers are switching over.

    What size would be recommended for someone 6'2" roughly 195lbs? Large or X-Large

    Best Answer

    Hey Greg,



    I am about your size (6'1" 185 lbs.) and have the Marmot Zeus in size Large which fits me well with a little room for layering. I think a Large would be best for you but if it does not fit then we can always help you exchange it for the XL and cover the return shipping costs.
