If we took anything more away, only the zipper would remain. Our Houdini® Vest provides lightweight, weather-resistant protection where it matters most: your core. The wind-blocking nylon ripstop fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the single left-chest pocket converts to a stuffsack with reinforced carabiner clip-in loop, and the back of the hem adjusts with a single pull. For road rides and asphalt runs, the reflective logos on left chest and center-back neck provide a blip of critical visibility.

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 Houdini™ Vest is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Light Weight Needed this for my work in law enforcement as a light vest to cover all the equipment on my vest without having me heat up. Keeps light mist and rain off, but you'll need an actual rain coat for true rain. Very light weight and folds into a small package. At the time, they had "black" which is a good color for me. If you bring back the black or have Navy Blue then I would purchase a second one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and effective Great for when you need something light and pack-able to take the edge off in cool conditions, such as starting a ride. Suggestions for improvements: adding a little elasticity, a slightly trimmer profile, and a little extra breathability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Piece! Perfect for what I wanted it for: ski touring in late-winter and spring. Wore it for three days in the Wallowa's and it did it's job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so little, so much i have been using vests for years, but my old ones are worn and heavier than this one. this vest is super light, but packs a serious warmth punch. just like the houdini jacket and alipne houdini, it is worth it's weight in gold. compacts small in a pocket or pack, fits great, easily adds 10-15 degrees of warmth to any top. i'm a big fan of arm warmers for use in the outdoors. arm warmers, a good short sleeve top and this vest will get you through 40+ temps with easy temp regulation. this will get more use than my houdini coats, which is saying something as they are used a lot. but for where I live (portland, or), i have a lot of outdoor time in the 40, 50's and 60's. i am 5'10, and 165lbs and wear the small. it has a snug fit, which is what i like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cycling, and life. I have many cycling vest that all fit great but none that pack down so small. Though it's not skin tight to race in for cold descent this rules as I don't want to carry a bulky vest up. But I end up wearing always to keep the early morning spring chill away. I've even used as a mid layler for spring skiing so I can stick it in my back pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vest Great, super functional vest. As a breaker over capilene or UA/similar or really just a cotton tee, it really gets the job done in colder weather. I mainly use it trail running in the southern Sierras, but would definitely take this on longer expeditions, too. It packs incredibly small & light. The Medium fits me well (I'm usually a Medium or Large). A tad tight in the shoulders, but I have a broad chest/shoulders. The Large would be too baggy in the body for a lot of us in this size range (as a couple other reviewers noted). Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest Well designed vest. Perfect for running and stashes away into a small, light package smaller than my fist. I'm 6'1", 175 pounds and first ordered the Large which was a bit too baggy through the torso. Reordered a medium and it fits perfectly - not too tight, but also tight enough so the fabric isn't moving around while running or biking. Great item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome light and great to always have on hand Cool spring evening here in the Midwest... I get the vest in the mail and have had it on since.. Over a t-neck or t-shirt it's a great super light layer to add. It weighs next to nothing and tucks away the same. Love the red color!! This does run slim, for sure. I am normally large but XL was the fit for me on this. Thanks for a great addition to essentials to have on any hike or hanging out side enjoying the weather !!
