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.

  • Running jacket that balances breathability and weather resistance
  • Softer ripstop fabric allows for cooling airflow when you heat up
  • DWR coating beads off moisture from drizzly skies on long runs
  • Wind-resistance balances breathable airflow for an ideal climate
  • Jacket packs down into its own pocket for convenient pack storage
  • Hood adjusts in one pull for full coverage against wind and rain
  • Minimal trim in the cuffs and hem keep your fit in place as you run
  • Item #PAT02PD

The Perfect Wind Jacket

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

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.

I LOVE this jacket for trail running during the winter time. The little extra wind protection makes a big difference in keeping me warm. I took this out for a weekend long trail running trip with some friends in Southern Utah during November and found myself super comfortable even in the bottom of the canyons. Another plus is that the jacket doesn't make a super loud "whooshing sound" like I expected it might. It fits true to size.

They really mean it when they say this jacket packs down! It's so tiny and lightweight that there's really no reason for me to not take it along on those shoulder season adventures. I've crammed it into a small hip pack several times and it barely takes up any room. It works really well for cutting wind and gives me a little extra layering warmth. I've used it for both hiking (up/down) and biking (down). The design is very minimalist - that small chest pocket is all you get. For me the fit is pretty typical of other Patagonia jackets I've owned and I found myself dancing somewhere between a small and medium. Preferred the medium for the longer torso and arm lengths and ability to throw over other layers.

I love how lightweight this jacket is! So pack-able and easy to transport! I use it for runs and hikes when there's light rain or snow. The only thing is I wish it had pockets!!

Why is this triple the cost of the Houdini wind jacket at $69.99? They are very similar. Please explain what makes this jacket so much more expensive?

Hey Kristina, I sent you a email describing the two! Basicly Houdini is featherweight at 3.4 oz. Made 100% nylon rip stop and treated coat that is DWR (Durable water repellent) finished. While the AIR is a ultralight weight at 3.6 oz. Made with 90% Nylon and 10% Polyester. The DWR finish is double woven into the jacket. Making it a better quality. Double-weave textured back fabric manages and regulates the next-to-skin micro climate during high-output activity to help avoid that hot, sweaty feeling. I attached two pictures of the AIR. You can see its woven/lined with that material. Little more into the DWR; the fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job. Both jackets have a zippered chest pocket converts to stuff sack with a reinforced carabineer clip-in loop. Have a minimal trim built into cuffs and hem for low bulk, superior comfort and fit while in motion. Adjustable hood. And DWR finish.
