New for 2014! Ultra-lightweight and weather resistant, the Patagonia Men’s Alpine Houdini Jacket offers simple protection and a high level of breathability that caters to alpine climbers, as well as trail runners and minimalist backpackers. Weighing only 5.4 ounces and packing down small into its own chest pocket, this jacket can be taken anywhere and easily fits into any pack or can be clipped to your climbing harness.
Made from highly wind-resistant and almost weightless nylon ripstop fabric with Patagonia’s Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish to help protect you from damp weather, the Men’s Alpine Houdini Jacket is fully seam-taped and layers well over a base layer. The regular fit is casual and comfortable, yet won’t inhibit movement on the trail. The helmet-compatible hood can be adjusted with one hand, has a minimal interior storm flap and can roll down and stow when not needed. Elasticized cuffs and a single-pull drawcord adjustable hem streamline the fit. A single zippered internal chest pocket stows a key or energy gel, and packs the jacket itself when the wind and drizzle clear up; a carabiner loop inside the pocket lets you quickly secure the Alpine Houdini Jacket to your harness or pack. Reflective logos help improve nighttime visibility.
The Patagonia Men’s Alpine Houdini Jacket is available in your choice of size and color.
