Why We Like The Houdini Full-Zip Jacket

Always the ace up our sleeve, the ultralight, ultra-packable Patagonia Houdini Full-Zip Jacket is made with a lightweight recycled nylon ripstop that blocks the wind on summit trails and exposed rock faces. This jacket also weighs less than four ounces and packs down in an instant. The entire jacket stuffs into its own carabiner-loop chest pocket, letting us clip it onto a pack or harness when the wind dies down, or tuck it into a pocket of the smallest running pack. A DWR coating helps shed light rain when ever-changing mountain weather throws a curveball, and the one-pull adjustable hood tacks on protection from the elements.


  • Ultralight and packable windbreaker for almost all of our pursuits
  • Recycled nylon ripstop blocks the wind on blustery peaks
  • DWR coating protects from light rain on drizzly mountain days
  • Chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack with a carabiner loop

Excitied for it

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Super light wait and packable. had to size up to an XL to wear anything more than T-shirt under it and to get the length I need in the arms. looking forward to using it.

Does what its supposed to... Mostly.

I've used it several times

Great little jacket. I just wanted something for mountain biking that would take the bite off my skin at the beginning of a ride but could also fit in my pocket or a frame bag once I warmed up. It is perfect for that and I also find it to be comfortable to just wear around town or on my way to work. The wind protection it offers makes up for lightweight fleece's warmth and it is way lighter - not to mention that I can put this on over long sleeves and it slides ride over whatever I'm wearing under it. I hate when jacket sleeves stick to your base layers and bunch everything up. I did size up to a large just to give better range of motion while on the bike since it is not a stretchy material. I am 5' 9.5" and would typically wear a medium if I was just hiking with it, but it still fits well and doesn't fit like a trash sack the way some of these jackets can be. My only complaint about it is that the cinch system on the drawstring, while being very minimal, does not function well and you will end up fiddling with it if you need to use it. Basically there are two tiny notches that each bungee strand hooks into and holds it snug enough be able to cinch down, but on the waist every time I pull the strings they pop out of the little notches and then I have to feed them back into the notches and very carefully cinch it down without popping them out again. The hood uses the same thing and for some reason works fine so they are probably just not a super consistent mechanism.

Exactly as adver

I've put it through the wringer

Solid work from a solid company. This jacket is super light? great as an add to a backcountry pack. Does well in a light rain, not going to keep you dry through a downpour? at all. Good end breaker and super light. Exactly what you would expect.

This is hardly a jacket.

I returned this product before using it

I bought this for my son for a gift as he recently lost a lightweight Patagonia jacket. By the description, it says it is a jacket. It weighs less than 6 ounces in the packaging. I am so disappointed and would have been so embarrassed to give it to him. Now I need a more appropriate gift. I hope that I can find one.

Don?t like hood

I've put it through the wringer

Nice in every way except the hood closure (tightens behind head) - cannot get it tight. If there?s a strong wind coming at you, the hood balloons and does not protect well. Wish they would revert to a traditional ?perimeter of opening? drawstring.
