The Patagonia Houdini Air is the perfect jacket for sports and leisure thanks to DWR coating and the great packing size. The ultra-lightweight, double-weave texturized back fabric manages and regulates the next-to-skin microclimate during high-output activity to help avoid that hot, sweaty feeling, and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides protection without sacrificing breathability. The minimal, low-bulk trim built into cuffs and hem provide superior comfort and fit while in motion, and a zippered chest pocket converts to stuffsack with clip loop for effortless stowage. Hood adjusts in one pull for ease of use and good peripheral vision.

They work hard to produce innovative, high-quality, simple and utile apparel that help explorers and outdoor enthusiasts achieve their dreams.
