Why We Like The Houdini Air Jacket

It's the dilemma that runners have been grappling with since the dawn of time—do you go light on layers and wind up potentially cold and wet on your run, or do you give yourself the adequate protection you need for changing conditions only to end up running in a sauna of your own devices? Instead of choosing between weather-resistance and breathability, throw on the Patagonia Houdini Air Jacket for the perfect balance of each. Finding itself in between the more robust wind-resistance of the Patagonia Houdini jacket and the featherweight breathability of their Airshed pullover, this ultralight running jacket offers air-permeable performance while still giving you enough resistance to wind and rain to not feel the full force of the elements on windy peaks and drizzly mountain roads.

Just like the original Houdini, the Houdini Air is ultralight and packable, able to fit into its own chest pocket and clip onto a running pack or stuff into an oversized pocket. Its updated fabric is softer and more air-permeable, delivering enhanced next-to-skin comfort while letting in cooling airflow that regulates your temperature and eliminates the need to constantly zip and unzip your jacket when you heat up. It's still wind-resistant, and will keep you from feeling the brunt of alpine headwinds, but will now allow in enough air to keep you cool when you start to really charge up steep mountain trails. Plus, it's got a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating that works to shed light rain and ensure that you won't be soaking wet through on and off showers.

It's OK, but not great as I thought

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 3"

I thought I'd love it, but I'ts just not as breathable and warm as expected. I prefer to wear this jacket for 10 to 20 Celcius. If I want to wear something light but warmer and more breathable, I prefer my Ortovox windbreaker for lower temperatures.

The Perfect Wind Jacket

I've used it several times

I've tried a ton of wind jackets over my years being a Gearhead, but my favorite by far is the Houdini Air. It does a great job of blocking wind, but is also the most breathable and wicking one I've worn yet. I really like the raised fabric on the interior that keeps the jacket off your skin! I found the fit to be true to size and even a little room to layer, which is really nice considering I have to size up in most wind jackets. This jacket lives in my pack and goes on every adventure with me. It's so light and packs up so small, there's no reason not to take it everywhere with you.
