    don't leave home without it

      The Houdini is one of my all time favorite jackets, and my single favorite piece that Patagonia makes. I wear it frequently all year long for everything from mountain biking to hiking to ski touring, and quite a bit as an everyday lightweight jacket. It's wind and water resistant, and does great and as emergency piece when you're caught out in a storm. It protects well from rain and snow, and breathes fairly well once the storm lets up. The jacket itself packs into the chest pocket and doesn't take up much room at all in a pack, and fits well in a bike jersey pocket. Highly highly recommend for anyone who spends time outside!

      The Great

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit:True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      First, let me give a huge thanks to Patagonia and Backcountry for selecting me to test and review the Houdini Full-Zip jacket.

      The night before I ran my first 100 mile trail race, I received the Houdini in the mail. I was stoked. Super light and the fit was spot on for me. Now, you're always told to never try anything new before a big race and for the most part, I have always followed that. But with the weather calling for rain on race morning, I thought, what better way to test a product than a 100 mile run through the mountains of Colorado with rain and wind. Fortunately, the Patagonia Houdini performed well beyond myself. For the first 25+ miles, we had wind and rain at high altitude. It was cold but the Houdini helped manage the conditions and kept me comfortable. Even though I didn't manage to finish, the Houdini did an excellent job.

      The Houdini not only performs like the Great Harry Houdini did, but when you aren't using it, it packs away into the chest pocket. It's so compact, I can put it into the hip pocket on my running shorts. It just disappears. And when you are wearing it, the chest pocket is large enough for a phone, a few gels, etc. The fit of the jacket is slim but not too tight. I can wear my hydration pack under this jacket which is great when conditions are changing through the day.

      Another small but nice feature I've been liking is that the collar is higher than normal. When fully zipped, the collar comes up high enough to protect your face. This is really key when it comes to fully protecting from the wind.

      Since the day I got this jacket, I have been wearing the hell out of it and showing no signs of wear. From wind to rain and snow. 14,000 ft peaks to winter runs on the coast of Lake Superior. The Houdini has stood up to everything I've taken it into to. Certainly a center piece in my running kit.

      Race-Ready

      I got the new Houdini the night before the Leadville 100. They say you shouldn't use anything new on race day but I took a chance and wore the Houdini. It shielded me from the rain and wind for the first 28 miles. Even though I didn't finish, the Houdini performed like a champ.

      Unanswered Question

      How does this compare to last year's model?
      I see that the pocket as changed on the front and it is lighter, but any other significant changes in fit (because the 2013-2015 were criticized for fitting tightly)or features from the previous model?
