  • Lightweight material.
  • Blocks light wind.
  • Breathable, but remains insulated for warmth.

  • Compacts into a small size.

Expert Reviews

  • 600-fill power down for warmth, although not the lightest weight.
  • Elastic-bound cuffs to seal the warmth inside.
  • Wide range of color choices available.
  • Down has a hydrophobic treatment to protect it from light water.
  • Ripstop polyester for durability.
  • Moderately warm, despite not having any drawcords.
  • No constriction of movement in the shoulders or arms.

Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • Heat-seal logo may not look high-quality to some.
  • The down fill has been reported to shed.
  • No drawstring for the waist or the hood to keep in warmth.

Expert Reviews

  • No adjustments on the hood or waist, or on any of the seams/edges.
  • Shedding feathers is a common problem with this jacket.
  • One of the heavier jackets compared to the competition.
  • Extra space in the torso depending on body type, meaning it can be colder.
  • Not as good at sealing out the cold as some of the competition.


The Marmot Tullus Down Jacket for men is a good choice for bigger-framed men who want a solid jacket for shorter trips and wearing around town. The lack of compressibility, baggier-fitting torso area, and lower quality down make this not the best option for extended backcountry trips, but the reasonable price still makes it an option to be considered.
