Erico Mendoncawrote a review of Patagonia Houdini Pant - Men's on February 28, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
While touring the US on a motorcycle last year, I saw the Houdini jacket on an outdoor store and thought it would be great to venture the rain on the road. And I was right. It was flawless. I wanted to buy the pants, but couldn't find it anywhere.
I know it's not the intended use, but it sure beats using heavy rain plastic gear that will not only constrict your movements, but will not breathe at all. It's common to get home more wet on the inside from the sweat than the rain itself. Plus, they normally take a lot of space on your backpack/panniers.
The Houdini pants + jacket are unbelievably compact and do the job wonderfully. Plus, they can be worn over my regular motorcycle jacket/pants. Highly recommended!
