A down vest like the Tullus Vest shouldnt be missing from any touring backpack! Marmot has designed the vest so that it can fit under a hardshell or softshell jacket and packed it full of fantastic features.
The ripstop-reinforced outer material with DWR coating ensures that moisture cant get into the down filling. The down itself is treated with Down Defender so that it can keep you warm even in unpleasant, damp conditions on the mountain. The treatment helps prevent the down from clumping, allowing it to maintain its 600 cubic inches of fill power. The Tullus Vest has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and is great at keeping the upper body warm, whilst still allowing the wearer a full range of motion. The small pack size the down vest can be packed into the inside zip pocket ensures that the vest can even be squeezed into a full backpack. So you can react quickly and effectively to changing conditions when you're on the move!
Highly functional, reliable, versatile and well designed the Marmot Tullus Vest!
