brackec wrote a review of Patagonia Houdini Full-Zip Jacket - Men's on May 26, 2009
This is a great shell when you need to carry a shell, but don't need bomber protection. I carry this on mountain runs when you need to be protected from afternoon thunderstorms. The light weight and compact size fit easily in a small hydration pack or under a bungee on a hip belt. The shell does not breath the best, but it serves it's purpose. I wore this jacket for the 2008 Leadville Trail 100 where it rained for the entire race. The jacket kept me dry enough to stay warm in the 40F temperatures.
