    Easy-packing protection.

    When you’re two pitches up a climb and the wind just won’t let up, pull on the Patagonia Women’s Houdini Jacket for some defense. The lightweight ripstop nylon shell is both wind and water-resistant, with a moisture-shedding DWR finish for extra protection from the elements. Its one-pull adjustable hood cinches tightly during inclement conditions without restricting peripheral vision. Other key features include a drawcord-bound hem, half-elastic cuffs, and reflective logos. Note that the Houdini Jacket sports a slim fit that's been revised (i.e. more shoulder room than before) for wearing over baselayers or low-profile midlayers. When the wind eventually dies down, you'll find that it effortlessly folds into its zippered chest pocket, and you can attach it to your harness with its reinforced clip. This jacket crosses genres nicely, allowing you to have one jacket for all of your climbing, trail running, and backpacking adventures.

    a classic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    This lightweight windbreaker from Patagonia is a total staple in any outdoor lover's closet. It's comfortable, packs down unbelievably small (you don't even notice it when it's clipped to your harness), and comes in a large range of colors so you can stand out in the backcountry. There's literally no reason to leave this thing at home. Plus, it's water resistant if you happen to accidentally get caught in a light rainstorm on your way down the trail.

    Here's a photo of this jacket during a backpacking trip in the Uinta Wilderness Forest last month! It was really handy during periods of high wind as we climbed ridges and increased in elevation. The lightweight structure and breathabilty makes this a perfect active jacket. Check out my more detailed review below!

    Aptly Named

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Unbelievably light fabric! Barely feels like its there at all. Good initial protection from the elements, but its the pack size that really makes it amazing. The perfect light shell for anyone.

    BEST Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this for my aunt as a gift, because I already have one and I love it. It's the best jacket for summer adventures in the mountains. It packs up super small and it's perfect as a backup jacket in case there's wind or light rain!

    YAS!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    This is the perfect windbreaker for any activity. I've been using just a regular rain jacket for most trail running and biking but it doesn't offer the breath-ability and lightweight material that the houdini does. I finally bit the bullet and decided to see what all the hype was about. SO WORTH IT. it's light... it's breathable... you barely even notice you have it on! It keeps that chilly wind off of you on those speedy downhills and makes a huge difference. I've loved it! I wear a size small across the board and this was no exception. fit me true to size! has a little more length to it than a lot of lightweight windbreakers out there which is really nice. keeps your lower back covered when you are leaning over a bike and gives you more wind protection.

    This jacket is super, SUPER thin, but I think that's perfect for summer hikes. Wore it on a 14 mile out and back up Mount Timpanogos, which is known for being windy at the saddle, and it kept me warm. Packs up super tiny. Got the purple color and love it.

    Perfect for summer hikes

    Awesome jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I pack this jacket anytime I'm going on a hike or long run. Packs small and lightweight, takes the edge off the wind and will keep a small amount of water off. It does dry quickly if you get caught in heavier rain, as I have a few times.

    Great Jacket for Everything

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    This is a great lightweight jacket for just about everything! I always keep it close in case i need a little extra protection from either wind, sun, or even light rain (although it is not waterproof) . Perfect for anything on the trail!

    Size Up if you have hips

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This is a great jacket - perfect for traveling, running and hiking. I bough this jacket for my mom for Mother's Day and had to return it for a larger size because Patagonia is made for athletic / straight women. The Large fit my mom through the arms and shoulders and stomach but was too tight at the waist. If you are curvy and have a bit of a booty - size up!

    She is loving her XL size and loves the color.

    Best Running Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This is my favorite running jacket. It's super pack-able so it can fit in my running vest for longer runs. I've owned mine for almost five years and its held up great.

    Perfect Bike Partner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    My go-to jacket for most to all my mtb and gravel bike rides! Folds down to just about nothing in my hip pack, blocks wind like a champ, and still keeps you from over heating. I would highly reccomend this for any spring/summer/fall bike ride.

    I've been a runner for the past 8 years and have always struggled finding a jacket that meets the balance between lightweight/breathable performance, while keeping the runner warm and protected from wind/light rain.

    After years of searching, the Patagonia Houdini Jacket meets that happy place! It's a mindblowing 3.3 ounces light, so there's no bouncing around of the jacket during runs. It's designed with minimal features, so there is only one chest pocket for storing things like cash, headphones, chapstick, a map, etc. You could fit a phone in there but with the size/weight of most phones these days, it probably won't be the most comfortable.

    During my run I was warm but didn't overheat on an overcast 58 degree day, with a tshirt on beneath it and 3/4 length leggings. The Houdini Jacket is very breathable and keeps out wind so you can focus on your run,and not how cold your arms feel in the breeze!

    The jacket is quite a bit thinner than I expected, but that is what makes the Houdini..the Houdini. Part of me is worried that the thinness makes this jacket more fragile than others, but ripstop nylon is pretty durable so I think it will hold up and be pretty durable.

    Sizing : Purchased an XS. Fits true to size, with a relaxed/billowy fit to it.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I bought this jacket to wear while hiking & biking. It definitely does it's job of blocking the wind. It's really lightweight and very compact, which makes it easy to bring places. Only downside is it is really thin.

    Perfect Lightweight Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    The Patagonia Houdini is the perfect spring/summer jacket in so many ways - it is so light and breathable, you can toss it on when trail running, hiking, or mountain biking for extra protection from wind or a chill. It is the best jacket i have ever had as a performance layer/workout layer. Fits super well, and is extremely light!

    The perfect layer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I bring my houdini pants and jacket with me whenever I'm skeptical of the weather. They are great layers to have if you're a trail runner or hiker. If it's just a bit too windy or cold, they will make your adventure much more bearable.

    Hi Jordan, Would you say that with the houdini jacket that you can wear a layer comfortably under it? I am a small (about your size) and on the fence ordering a medium bc I don't want it to be baggy. But, with that being said, I don't want it tight either and would like to wear a light sweatshirt underneath at times. Thoughts? Thanks so much.

    Better Wind Protection than Rain

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'1"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I've had this for a while and today I realized I was using this jacket all wrong! I thought it was a light weight rain jacket (so I'd wear it in spring to run in the rain and always ended up being soaked from my own sweat and the rain!) but it really is a wind breaker with some light rain protection. Today it was 20 degrees with 20+ mph wind (Windchill of 3 degrees!) and I ran 10 miles wearing just a long sleeve tee shirt and a Houdini and I was comfortable, not cold because the Houdini kept my body heat in so well. I had a headband and the hood was awesome, staying put throughout.

    A good backup jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'd recommend this jacket as a backup and not as a main shell. It's a thin jacket, no pockets, but that's what it's meant to be--minimalist--and for the most part it does its job.

    The first time I used this was backpacking in a downpour and it performed perfectly. The water beads on the outer shell and no leakage.

    However, the second time I used it, it seemed to leak in through the seams. I would get wet spots under my jacket that seemed to be coming in from the seams, other parts of the jacket were fine. I don't believe the seams on this are taped which is disappointing. Other than that, it's still great as a backup because it's so light but I probably won't be using this for anything other than emergencies anymore.

    This is it, this is the jacket you never knew you so needed until it was in your hands and you say "YES!"



    Dramatic? Maybe. But. This is the MVP of all things outside playtime. It packs down into its own pocket. ITS OWN POCKET, PEOPLE! Which is so petite you'd never even notice it, unless you've stashed some snacks in that bub.



    It's remarkably water resistant for how very thin it is, and is easily re-vibed with some NikWax techwash.



    I've used this for everything from xc skiing to running to backpacking expeditions. This summer, it was my windbreaker/quick warmth-adder, and hiking rain jacket when it was sprinkling (to preserve my heavier shell for when we got into camp).



    I recommend this for everyone playing outside and looking to go quick--sometimes. It weighs almost nothing and adds significant warmth.



    I'm always a medium in Patagonia, and this is true to form. I'm 5'6" 140#, about a 32D, and the medium allows for wearing a base and mid layer, comfortably.



    Never Out of my Sight
    Unanswered Question

    How warm is the jacket? Im looking for just a really nice lightweight backpacking jacket that i can wear at camp or in the morning when it gets more chilly between 30s and 50s. Would this be comfortable for that? (Obviously with a baselayer underneath?
