The Houdini Jacket is a 100% recycled nylon, super light take-it-anywhere jacket with weather-resistant protection for high-output endeavors.
Run, ride, climb—just don’t go without the up-for-anything Houdini Jacket. It encourages improvisation with its updated weather-resistant 100% nylon ripstop fabric, which blocks wind and withstands abrasion. The slim fit accommodates a baselayer or a light midlayer; the hood cinches with a single pull and won’t pinch your ears; cording, toggles and cuffs are all trim and lightweight. Half-elastic cuffs seal the wrists, and a drawcord cinches the hem. It packs snugly into its own small, vertically zippered chest pocket, which has a reinforced clip-in loop for attaching to your hydration-pack straps. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish coats the shell and the center-front zipper. With a reflective logo on the left chest and center-back neck.
Patagonia's Houdini Jacket is a super-light wind jacket. Weighing in at 100g it keeps features to a minimum to achieve this weight. However, it still has a small zipped chest pocket which doubles as a stuff sack along with adjustable hood and hem with small draw cords to get the fit right for the conditions. Part elasticated cuffs also help with this fit without restricting movement.
The Houdini jacket is surprisingly comfortable next to the skin considering how light it is. It is perfect for trail runners but is useful to anyone heading to the hills for throwing over a mid layer to keep out the wind. The nylon fabric is 100% recycled which is a fantastic Eco bonus typical of Patagonia's ethos.
