Why We Like The Houdini Jacket

For practically weightless weather protection on our daily run, hike, or climb, we bring along the Patagonia Houdini Jacket. It's easy to pack down and throw in the pack, a pocket, or on a harness, and keeps us protected from whipping alpine winds and light precipitation. Now made with a completely recycled nylon ripstop that blocks the wind at an ultralight weight, this jacket also features a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating that sheds light rain, moderate snow, and whatever mild precipitation you can manage to find in the mountains.


  • Ultralight and packable shell for windy mountain days
  • Recycled nylon ripstop blocks the wind on exposed peaks
  • DWR coating sheds light rain when hiking in drizzly weather
  • Chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack with a handy carabiner loop
  • Hood adjusts with one pull to give you quick protection
  • Full front zipper allows for custom ventilation
  • Drawcord hem prevents updrafts while climbing
  • Reflective logo boosts your visibility on nighttime runs
  • Item #PAT02PE

Nice Light Weight Jacket

Am always fan of Patagonia products and this is all as it was described when I ordered it. Somehow, I guess I missed that there are no pockets which keeps it nicely fitted, close to the body. However, had I realized that there were no pockets, probably would not have ordered it. But I did keep it.

Ready for Fall Running

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

Just got this to prep for rainy and windy Seattle fall runs. Love how lightweight and portable it is. I'm almost wishing for it to start raining here. Almost.

Everyone needs at least one Houdini

I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love my Houdinis (yes, plural). I use it for biking, running, fighting the Pacific wind and sometimes also the sun. It makes picking the right wardrobe so easy: Jersey/shirt + houdini works in the winter and in the summer. If you area outdoorsy person you definitely want to have one (or two,...).

Great on-the-go Rain Jackets

I've put it through the wringer

I love that I can literally just shove this thing in my backpack and purse. It's a great jacket to have, especially if you live somewhere where it'll rain daily.

Superlight, water repellent, runs small

I've used it several times

I absolutely love the jacket, lightweight and windproof. Not to be waterproof but I am ok with that. I usually go with a medium in Patagonia, but this jacket runs really small. If you have curves, definitely size up!

Running jacket

I returned this product before using it

Loved the color and the specs on this jacket when I bought it to run in. It was lightweight and waterproof, but the see through fabric was a disappointment for me, I returned it and bought something else.
