Marmot Tullus Down Jacket - Men's
MarmotTullus Down Jacket - Men's

Stay toasty.

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 brings you 600-fill down insulation within an easy-packing design. The polyester ripstop shell retains lightweight efficiency, with a DWR treatment for moisture-shedding protection from light rain and snow showers. 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.

    Bought the denim color. Found it fits true to size, xl and I'm 5'10 and 200 lbs, wife says it looks great. Second marmot I've purchased from backcountry and am very pleased with both. Have wore in temps down to 0 degrees in tshirt and was warm. Will use as jacket for running around town.

    Great jacket!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Just purchased and have not had the opportunity to use, but love the fit and look. I typically wear a medium in Patagonia's Nano Puff. This jacket has a little more room to layer.

    Losing its feathers!

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

    Comfortable and warm jacket, but its shedding down from all its seams. Also the shell seems to tear very easily leading to a white fluffy cloud! I would recommend another brand. Very dissapointed with quality.

    not suffering this even after washing a few times, which I thought would be the end of it. very happy

    light and warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium

    Stormcloud is a great color. Jacket is warm and comfortable and it looks sharp - I hope it doesn't shed. So far- no problems.

    Was great at first, But.......

      It was great until it started to shed feathers on everything after the 3rd day. I thought that was what you had to deal with when you wear a down jacket but, I bought another down by a different brand and it doesn’t shed. I Should return or exchange, maybe I just received a bum jacket.

      Ran smaller than North Face. Would have exchanged for larger size but didn’t want to keep paying shipping charges if it didn’t fit

      Perfect for me

      Exceptionally comfortable. 15 degrees with a wind chill and was wearing a t shirt underneath. Size is always my problem. I am 5’9 260lbs. Not a body builder or anything. More one of those barrels chested types. I always struggle with finding clothes that are not tight in the chest and shoulders. This jacket is roomy and comfortable. Love it. Thanks!

      Great jacket and I picked it up just in time for the cold temps that are quickly creeping up on us! I've been doing some bike packing/overnight camp trips with temperatures going down into the low 30s and this jacket has kept me warm the whole time! Love it.

      Hi, I'm 5'8" and 140 pounds. Would you say I should order a small or a medium. I ask you because you're relatively close in size. thanks

      Marmot Tullus Down Jacket

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

      I've been looking for a good down jacket (my first) for a few months now and believe I found a winner. I purchased the Steel Onyx one that was on sale and Backcountry shipped it to me in two days. Great color and great price! After opening the package and seeing how light and thin the jacket was, I thought there's no way this thing could be much better than a wind breaker. I put it on and the fit is very nice. I'm 6'4" tall and the medium fit just right. I was concerned the sleeves would be too short but they were not and the jacket isn't bulky either. If you are much taller than 76" you will probably need to consider something else. Temps that day were about 34 degrees and sunny with a stiff breeze so I headed out for a walk around my neighborhood to test it out. I was wearing a short sleeve t-shirt underneath, a fleece cap and gloves. The wind didn't penetrate the jacket at all and after walking for a few minutes I actually had to lower the zipper some due to getting a bit too warm. Overall I'm quite impressed with this jacket. I believe it would keep you warm down to 20 degrees with a light fleece underneath it. It's not bulky, the color is nice, and Backcountry had a great price on these with fast shipping! Kudos to them!

      Marmot Tullus Down Jacket

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

      I got this for my brother-in-law for Christmas and he loves it. The jacket is super warm even with just a shirt on during 20 degree weather. He loves the fit and the steel onyx color is nice. The only drawback is the feathers that tend to come out; hopefully this will pass and they just need to get settled a bit more.

      Just Ok.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got this to replace an old Marmot Down Jacket.
      Fits true to size,sleeve lengths were ok. Love the blue.
      Don't care much for the stuff sack. A bit disappointed with the the thickness. Seems very thin, more like a sweater layer. Cuffs would curl
      under, which began to bother me. I don't understand how this could keep you toasty unless you're active. Sitting around, I still needed more layers than I was expecting to keep warm. Not that impressed, but keeping it to supplement my layer system.

      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 Tullus. The Tullus was okay, but there were others that were better. The one I had was Skyline Blue and it's a nice looking color. The stitching on the jacket... something about the way the stitching goes down on the ends looked weird.
      Fit: The fit was good and normal. It 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 wasn't quite as comfortable as some but more than others. The fabric feels okay but doesn't feel as comfortable and quiet as some of the others I tried. The hand pockets are a bit more to the side than I would have liked and the openings could be a bit more angled. Neck and cuffs are basic but fine.
      I ended up returning the Tullus and choosing the Patagonia Down Sweater as it felt a bit warmer, and lighter (800-fill down vs the Tullus' 600-fill down). However, this jacket is a fantastic value - it was $122. The Patagonia was $40 more.

      Great jacket

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

      This is a great jacket, here's why:
      1. Great value: I got it on sale for something like $125. At that price it is a steal for the quality.
      2. Warm: not much to say about this. It won't take you on an arctic expedition, but for the light weight, it is extremely warm.
      3. Quality: I believe Marmot is doing a great job with their products these days and this jacket is a great example thereof. Only had it a couple months, but the initial quality impression is top notch.
      4. Weight: its light, but still warm. Been my go to jacket this winter where temps have fallen to 0 degrees. Its good on it's own down to about 30ish. Below that, I include either a shell or another thermal layer.
      5. Fit: I'm about 6', 175 and the Medium fits me darn near perfect. Nothing worse than short arms on a jacket. No problem there as the arm length, I would say, is above average.
      6. Style: first day I wore it a friend said to me, "Hey, where did you get that jacket?" It looks great on! I have the Steel Onyx color.

      Highest recommendation.

      PS - I first got the Marmot Zeus jacket that I returned because the outer fabric was too shiny for my tastes. The finish on the Tullus jacket is quite matte looking.

      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.
