Power Air Hoodie
When you wash your favorite fleece, it does more than soak away the sand and dirt from your last climbing trip. Unfortunately, washing our fleeces releases thousands of microfibers into our waterways, where they become a harmful part of the ecosystem. Houdini is working to find a solution to this problem with their Power Air Hoodie. Developed with Polartec, this lightweight fleece delivers comfortable warmth that layers well in the winter, stands alone in the fall and spring, and stretches comfortably whenever you wear it. But more importantly, it sheds up to five times fewer microfibers than standard fleeces when washed. The Power Air accomplishes this task by substituting a
traditional exposed fleece construction for one in which the insulating
fleece fibers are trapped inside small pockets. This not only creates heat-trapping pockets that insulate you well without adding weight, but also cuts back dramatically on the amount of fibers that can enter our rivers and oceans, letting you feel good in more ways than one.

I truly love my power hoodi, but this version misses the whole package mark for me. PROs: the cut is amazing and fits true to Houdini style. For taller women, this rocks. The fabric looks and feels expensive, clean cut, and like it will last forever. i appreciate the concept of this piece as a more environmentally friendly fleece. the weight drapes nicely against my body. 5 stars for style. CONs: Its difficult to see in the stock photos, but this hoody is quilted, tiny little quilted squares, and when Im out on the water, or up on the mountain, I can feel the wind whip right through all those knitted seams. Definitely not as warm as Houdini's power fleece. It is heavy for a fleece. So not great for managing pack weight. 3 stars for functionality. I enjoy wearing this on the town, or at the gym, rather than in the wild.

- I've used it several times
I just got this jacket and I am obsessed! It is the perfect layer. I wore it hiking last night in the Wasatch, I've worn it skiing once, and it even works as a casual piece with jeans and cute sneakers. The fabric is awesome and it fits well. I am anywhere between a M-XL in tops, and the M fits me. It is definitely more of a fitted piece, but since it's a mid-layer that's how it should fit. I love the pockets, since they are on the side and not too bulky. The thumb holes are perfect for all of my adventures. I was skeptical about the price tag on this piece, but it is so worth it!
