Additional Information

Featherweight, emergency storm protection for light-and-fast alpine endeavors, the Alpine Houdini® Jacket disappears when clipped to your harness, then deploys to shed wind and precip when your weather window closes.

The problem is that you never see it coming on the Diamond. One moment you’re climbing dauntingly steep granite at 13,000 feet. The next, you’re staring at sinister clouds roiling over the summit. Seconds later, lightning cracks. The Alpine Houdini® keeps you dry with an H2No® Performance Standard fabric that combines a waterproof membrane, an ultralight 100% nylon ripstop shell and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. It’s emergency rainwear that blocks wind and traps your heat on chilly belay ledges, packs into a single chest pocket (now on the exterior of the jacket, with clip-in loop), and seals up with elastic wrist cuffs and a single-pull drawcord waist. With helmet-compatible, single-pull adjustable hood.
  • Ultralight 2.5-layer waterproof/breathable H2No® Performance Standard shell fabric
  • Coated, watertight center-front zipper has minimal interior storm flap; taped seams throughout entire garment
  • Alpine helmet-compatible hood with laminated visor and single-pull adjustment rolls down and stows with a simplified cord-and-hook design
  • Exterior left-chest pocket with coated, watertight zipper doubles as self-stuff pouch with streamlined shape and carabiner clip-in loop
  • Elasticized cuffs and a minimal single-pull adjustable drawcord hem seal out weather
  • H2No® Performance Standard shell: 2.5-layer, 1.9-oz 30-denier 100% nylon ripstop with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Fabric is certified as bluesign® approved
  • 201 g (7.1 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) 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.

Men's Alpine Houdini® Jacket is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs large I wear a 42 regular suit coat, this coat is extremely blousy, not an athletic fit. Looks goofy if you aren't fat enough to fill the coat. Lack of pockets and pit vents is a huge disappointment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Minimalist Rain Jacket I purchased the Alpine Houdini Jacket about a month ago and overall have been very impressed with it. Absolutely no water penetration despite being an extremely sheer jacket. I got it mainly as a highly packable outer layer that can be thrown on to keep off wind and rain while hiking, camping, etc (which it does well). It is also a really cool looking piece. Only thing I could complain about is that the zipper does get snagged fairly often, but that is really a minor detail because once it is zipped up it performs perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and waterproof Flexibility and mid thigh coverage with men's Houdini. XL lets me layer. Haven't figured out fit of hood's visor, but coverage on neck superb. Thanks pataG for having regular fit in men's line. All short and slim just don't get it in rainwear!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Jacket, But Some Issues... I bought this jacket a while ago and it has performed to my liking. The sizing is a bit big, but layers with a fleece layers and down jacket perfectly. The jacket is super packable, which makes it a go to for any trip. There are two issues; I wish the jacket had pockets. Your hands get wet in the rain and when climbing/biking in the cold or rain theres no place to warm your hands. Secondly, the elastic on the wrists is not adjustable and can have water seep into the jacket. If that happens, you might as well take the jacket off, dry it, and put it back on. It will trap the water inside the jacket for a while unless dried. Definitely a must have for an excursion, just try to catch it on sale.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I purchased this and immediately noticed the same problem I've had with other Patagonia light jackets, a dysfunctional zipper. If i have to spend several minutes zipping and unzipping it's not functional. I sent it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way Bigger then the regular Houdini jacket. I have a regular Houdini jacket in size L, it fits perfectly. This one in the same size is huge!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight protection but a couple of issues Terrifically lightweight and provides nice rain protection. Small always fits me well in all Patagonia products. This one has pretty long sleeves though, as mentioned in other reviews. Not horrible, but definitely longer than their other outerwear. The zipper is the big issue to me though. It catches on the storm flap on the right side, it catches on the mini-storm flap on the left side, then catches on the zipper garage at the top. You can't just put it on and zip it up. Takes both hands manipulating the storm flaps and the zipper garage and a few attempts to get it zipped to the top. Every time. I had one of the first versions of the Alpine Houdini several years ago. This one is better with the addition of the chest pocket on the outside and the metal zipper pulls (the old one had only the bungee cord pulls attached to the zipper head). Overall this is a good jacket, but the zipper issues keep it from being great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits the Gap I bought this Houdini a month ago (after being relieved of my Torrent Shell Stretch in San Francisco), and it mostly does what I want it to do: sheds most of the rain, and packs away small enough that I forget that I've got it at the bottom of my pack. I bought one size larger (M) than I wear in the Ultralight Down Sweater (S), and if I could do it again I think that I would have purchased a small. The sleeves are a bit long -- like many Patagonia products -- this, combined with the elastic cuff creates the effect of MC Hammer pants at your wrists, leading to pooling water. As well, and I was warned about this so I don't fault it. The lightness + waterproof comes at a lack of breathability. If you're using this in an upward pursuit, you're going to sweat. Probably a lot. Overall, the Houdini has bailed me out enough times that I'm happy I got it.
