The Patagonia Women's Houdini Jacket is a lightweight running jacket you'll want on your side when Mother Nature starts spitting on you. The Deluge DWR finish will shrug off the water droplets so you can continue running the windy trail of dripping leaves. Once the sun re-emerges, quickly pack the Houdini into the chest pocket and toss it into your pack. There when you need it, barely noticeable when you don't. Magical.

I have used this jacket on a multi-pitch rock climb, long bike rides, and wearing around camp. I expect to use it on more climbing adventures and while trail running. I balked at the price at first, but when I received this as a Christmas present I knew that this was going to be one of my most loved layering pieces. I suggest going with your traditional size, unless you absolutely know you will be using this over bulky layers, then size up. I personally like to use this over a light fleece, or under my down jacket. It is definitely a wind layer and not a waterproof layer. However, it does shed a light drizzle for about 10 minutes then you will be wanting your rain jacket.
I absolutely LOVE this jacket. I did a lot of research between comparable brands and their products and this houdini has the best bang for the buck. I wore it while crewing for the Voyager50 this year when it POURED and it kept me nice and warm and dry while waiting under a tree. I love love love the size and lightness of it, Packs into the size of one of those reusable grocery bags and fits perfectly in my purse to carry with me everywhere. It fits super nice and dries insanely fast (seriously magic) and is really light. I very highly recommend this product to all my friends even my enemies. My boyfriend saw how awesome this jacket was and got one for himself! Spread the love, share the magic, get the houdini!
