Offering water-resistant protection from the elements, the women's Patagonia Houdini jacket is a featherweight, but full-featured running shell.

- REI

Don't go without our up-for-anything Houdini(R) Jacket. Weather-resistant 100% nylon ripstop fabric blocks wind and withstands abrasion on multihour adventures. The slim fit accommodates a baselayer or a light midlayer; the improved hood cinches with a single pull and won't pinch your ears; cording, toggles and cuffs are all trim and lightweight. Half-elastic cuffs seal the wrists, and a drawcord cinches the hem. It packs snugly into its own small, vertically zippered chest pocket, which has a reinforced clip-in loop for attaching to your hydration-pack straps. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish coats the shell and the center-front zipper. With a reflective logo on the left chest and center-back neck.

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.
