Houdini Air Jacket
When you know you can't do without light weather protection but don't want to get stuck with that clammy feeling that can often accompany active pursuits while wearing a shell jacket, throw on the Patagonia Houdini Air Jacket for an ideal balance between breathable comfort and wind-and-water resistant protection. Finding itself in between Patagonia's soft and breathable Airshed jacket and the more robust Houdini jacket, this lightweight shell provides the best of both worlds with weather-resistant protection and a comfortable internal climate.
The nylon double weave fabric blocks the wind on blustery summits, while the textured backing construction promotes greater airflow than that of a standard shell design. It's also got a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating that resists drizzling rain and other light precipitation, helping to keep you dry while you push for cover in case the weather turns even more. When that proves to be a false alarm and the wind dies down, you can stuff it down small into its own chest pocket, stow it in a pack or on a harness, and continue along your way.

This thing was so great for morning walks with the dogs, going on runs, and wearing as casual wear in the office even. The balkan blue pops and received lots of compliments. The weight is just insanely light and feels like it is not even there. They put one pocket on it to reduce weight and pack size, just a heads up!

Soft and Comfy Wind Protection
I have usually avoided wind shirts in the past for the simple fact that most of them feel like trash bags and just don't move with you. The Houdini Air has changed that for me, this jacket is comfortable, stretchy, and soft. It is marketed as more breathable than the standard Houdini, while still blocking the wind. I would have to agree with those claims, as I run hot during activity and was able to keep this on and zipped all day during a warm spring ski tour. It does come with a price increase over the original model, but I definitely feel the added benefits are worth it.
