Lasst uns die Meere schützen, damit sie uns schützen können!

Unsere Zukunft ist eng mit dem Ozean verknüpft. Er verbindet uns alle durch Nahrung, Kultur und Sport. Der Ozean ist nicht nur die Heimat von wunderbarem und reichhaltigem Leben, sondern auch eine wirkungsvolle Klimalösung. Doch die Praxis der Grundschleppnetzfischerei gefährdet dieses wertvolle Ökosystem – sie zerstört unseren Meeresboden, gefährdet die traditionelle Kleinfischerei und verschärft die Klimakrise.

Ms Houdini Jacket

November 29, 2023

Great road running jacket

I'm 169cm, 64kilos and fairly lean, the XS was great for me, its a snug fit on my shoulders and can be a bit restrictive when doing stretches so i unzip it. i wear it with 1 base layer. I wear a cap with the hood on if its raining. The breathability of the jacket is why i bought it and that's a 10/10. i've been finally able to get tr...

Love it just wish it had pockets!

I love this jacket and its so light. I can throw it in my backpack. I just wish it had pockets.

Perfect cool weather jacket

This is my second black Houdini jacket and I love it. It's perfect for our climate (Alabama Gulf Coast), where it can be 35 degrees one day and 70 degrees the next day. It's my go to jacket on cool days, and my Nano Puff is for cold days.

Best windbreaker

I took this windjacket on a 6-month long ski traverse along the US Continental Divide in the 22-23 winter. It worked very well. The many nicks collected along the way were repaired by Patagonia. This is the toughest windbreaker that I have ever had. It stands out for it's durability, but could be tougher. The zipper failed at the point where ... Read Morethe weight from my GPS device would crease the fabric. The function-to-weight ratio is very high. It keeps you much warmer when wind while dispensing enough heat to keep you cool. This is my favorite mid-layer.

The perfect jacket

This is my 4th Houdini jacket going back to their first launch. For me, the Houdini is the perfect jacket. I originally bought it for trail running but bring it with me almost everywhere I go. It's highly breathable, but still able to ward off a gentle rain or dusting of snow. Here in Oregon the mornings can be much cooler than the afternoons,... Read More so I've taken to throwing on my Houdini as an extra layer in the morning, then tucking it in my backpack once the day warms up. Other lightweight wind/rain jackets I've tried are not as breathable. They tend to feel like I'm wearing a plastic bag. For all around day-to-day use for everything from casual wear to running and skate skiing, I love the Houdini's perfect mix of breathability and protection.

October 30, 2023

Genau der richtige Begleiter

Ist in jeder lebenslage hilfreich, ob bei Wind in den Bergen, im Schatten beim spazieren im Wald oder bei schnellen Abfahrten mit dem Rennrad. Bin absolut begeistert und würde die Jacke sofort wieder kaufen!

October 30, 2023

Love your stuff

Has always been good quality gear.

Super good running jacket

I absolutely love this jacket. Lightweight. You can foldable it so small that it fits your pocket. Strong materials and still featherlight. 5/5 jacket for runners. Im waiting next summer backpacking trips with it.

October 27, 2023

Best Windbreaker Ever

Hands down my BWF (best windbreaker forever). Arm length is perfect, hoodie just right and with a baseball cap and the hood up and zipped up a typhoon could not dislodge the hat. Couldn't recommend it more.

October 22, 2023


Die Jacke in S bei 173 und Chest 99 cm passt perfekt. Extrem leicht und angenehm auf der Haut. Winddicht und atmungsaktiv.

October 21, 2023

Favorite garment, with limits (it doesn't breath or shed water)

I love how the Houdini packs down (though the pocket could be just a bit bigger, to make packing easier and prevent fabric snags). Great windbreaker and for low intensity activity adds surprising warmth, but it does not breath at all and is barely water resistant. I use it to warm up at beginning of cool weather runs, but shed it after 5-10 minutes... Read More and at that point it is wet inside. Have to hang it to dry when I get home. Gets wet within minutes in the slightest rain. Applying DWR helps some. Would try the Houdini Air, but my experience with old Nine Trails was the "breathable" panels don't really breath. Only pit zips would help.

Light and keeps the weather off

Really pleased with this. Very light and packs down small so really handy to grab and shove in a bag or pocket. Worn in fairly heavy rain and wind for about 20 minutes and it kept me dry and stopped the wind from chilling me down too much, so did exactly what I’d wanted.

October 18, 2023

Best Jacket for Everything

Too many years ago a friend said this jacket was the best piece of outdoor clothing he had ever owned. I finally bought one and now everyone I know owns at least one. If you are one of the few people who hasn't tried this one - just buy it.

October 12, 2023

Simply great

So thin and light. I use it with a knitted sweater underneath which makes it perfect for windy autumn days.

October 9, 2023

It feels good.

Got the Houdini and wore it nearly every day during a 35-day birding expedition from southern California near the Mexico border to Olympic peninsula in Washington to Anchorage, Adak Island and St John's Island in the Bering Sea of Alaska. "Sold" 4 of these to other guests who were so intrigued by the wind resistance, QUIET (important... Read More for birding), light weight and packability. Was on 5-day pelagic boat trip 50 miles offshore and was able to layer up and down with the changing temperatures and wind. With a down vest underneath, was perfectly comfortable on Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park with low 40 F temps and howling winds. On Adak Island in the Aleutians and St Paul's Island in the Bering Sea, wore it as my outer jacket over a down jacket in 25+ mph winds and low 40's. Was fine in light rains. Got the patterned brown color which is a really cool camo color for chasing birds. I could see how this jacket might be too warm if running, but I never overheated even when slogging through 3 miles of heavy marsh in my Wellingtons. All in all, it's perfect for its intended use. Its unsurpassed for the avid birder.

October 1, 2023

Superleicht und winddicht

Tut genau, was es soll - nicht umsonst sehr bekannt als Windjacke. Brusttasche sehr klein, sonst keine Taschen, aber gute Passform und windsichere Kapuze. Immer dabei!

September 27, 2023

Wind Proof / Everyday Jacket

This jacket is perfect for traveling or anywhere you'll need a light outer layer. It's windproof and folds into itself very neatly. Easy to throw into a carry on bag for chilly plane rides or into a back pack/hiking bag if you're unsure if it will be chilly/windy.

September 21, 2023

Der Farbton ist nicht schön 🙄

Die Jacke ist absolut Traumhaft bis auf Farbe, sehr verwaschen

September 20, 2023

Waterproof and ultra light

Extremely light waterproof jacket. You barely feel it. It is is also windproof and keeps your warm. It is ideal for running/hiking without sweating too much under the material. Nice smooth central zipper. One nice pocket in the front. Wavy Blue is a really pretty color.

Trail Running: Wind Cutter and Emergency Rain StayDry, Stay Warm. Im a 38inch chest/31waist/166lbs and this is a great fit.

Really Lightweight and Versatile

I bought this jacket so that I can have a light top later to throw on in case the weather changes during a run or the work day. I typically get hot very easily and this lightweight jacket has been perfect in providing protection from the wind and rain without being excessively warm. I also love how small the jacket packs up into the chest pocket so... Read More this can quite literally be brought anywhere in your pocket.

Excellent; just one small issue

Super lightweight, which is what I wanted. Only complaint is the the little pocket (for packing it? not clear) kind of flops out when the zipper is down. Not a big deal.

August 9, 2023

Great lightweight jacket for warmer

Great lightweight jacket for warmer days and light showers.

August 2, 2023

Light and a nice protective layer

It's a very light jacket that's great for a small rainfall or fire biking even if a little chilly. Easy to pack and folds into it's own pocket. The good is strangely big, probably to wear over a helmet, though it's not a deterrent for me.

July 30, 2023

Great spare jacket to have!

This is my third Houdini jacket! I find it extremely useful to have as a spare jacket or one that you plan to take off as you or the weather warms up.

The perfect pocket layer

I call this the pocket layer because of the incredible packability. The jacket folds into its breast pocket, which then easily fits in my back pants pocket. This layer is perfect for breaking wind and light rains, adding a surprising layer of warmth. It is a staple item that comes with me on all fishing, climbing, and MTB trips, regardless of weath...

Swiss army knife

I love this jacket. I own two of them. It's versatility is where it really shines. You can wear it out for a run, and you can where it to your child's spring soccer games to knock the wind and light rain down. The snazzy pocket feature means you default to bringing it with you everywhere you go because it is so easy to stow away.

On a recent business trip and after reaching my destination, I realized I had lost my Houdini windbreaker jacket on the flight. I immediately submitted a lost report with the airline.

Multi tool of the jacket world

I had a bit of NHS back pay. I wanted to spoil myself. A wind breaker felt like a capricious bit of kit. But I'd been chilly heading out some mornings. Did my research and opted for the Houdini. Packed down to nothing, I'd ordered a size up to be able to layer. I'm the wind it worked. It was spitting one night, wore it in to town. Wa... Read Moreter stayed on the surface, took it off at the pub and gave it a shake... Dry jacket. Went camping in the rain. Waterproof soaked through the first night. Packed up to come home, waterproof too wet to put on. I put the Houdini over my down jacket. Walked out of the mountains, in the most comfort I've ever experienced. I'm not saying it replaces the waterproof, I've not tested it in heavy rain. But it's an extra bit of kit that I now value as indispensable, rather than a nice to have. Cannot recommend enough. Love it.

July 1, 2023

One of my favorite Patagonia jackets

This jacket is unbelievable weighing in at 3 ounces and yet it excels at keeping the cool damp air off of me. I love wearing it on my morning walks when I just need a lightweight jacket and hood.

June 30, 2023

A Star is (re)born

Tried and true piece of art. I never leave my homebase for a short- or long hike without it. Rebought it after wearing the first one for over 3000 trail miles.

June 27, 2023

Great quality, very light weight

Ive used this jacket 3 or 4 times in the rain now and really like it as a summer / running jacket. Light weight and fits close. Im 6.1ft 13 stone, went for a M as L was to large. I like a more fitted size for running but doesnt feel tight. Also, very handy that it folds in to its poclet to put in your pocket or day bag.

June 27, 2023


If you know you. Pro tip - superglue the bottom of the tag to the jacket. Wish I didnt have to, but its a fix

June 26, 2023

Best value jacket ever

Bought as a replacement/second jacket, I’ve had the other one around 8 years or more. Really useful, cheap, simple etc. I almost never trace without it.

Let's talk about that tag :-/

Hi Patagonia - I have three colors of this jacket. I THOUGHT that maybe the black one I bought was faulty with the funky stand-up tag. Then I found it in a really cool black/green camo pattern in your Santa Monica store. So I had to try it...same issue. Then I found it in a really cool burnt orange color in Crested Butte at Dragon Fly Outfitter so ... Read MoreI HAD to have it. Now, I I've read many of the reviews of the Houdini and it looks as if a lot of folks have the same gripe as me. The garment tag is placed too high on the back of the neck so that is sticks up. It's unsightly and it's annoying. I'd think this would be a simple running line change that could be in place for F23. Simply stop using the nylon tag (Hey, less plastic!) and just print the P7 Logo in it's place. Doable?

This means it's really only appropriate for just standing around. 40CFM is perfect for backpacking/hiking/jogging; it will stop wind but also let your sweat escape. Bring it back Patagon...

Lightweight, but sturdy.

This jacket is very lightweight and versatile. It can easily be stowed away and forgotten about until you need it. When worn, it feels as well-built as I've come to expect from Patagonia. I do wish it had pockets, but there are many other models in their range that have them.

Love my Houdini!

My friend recommended this jacket to me, and I can't recommend it enough myself! It's incredibly lightweight and provides just enough warmth and weather protection (with a base layer) to get through a hike in light conditions. It's also super packable, so I bring it with me everywhere. Love it!

February 24, 2023

Perfect in the backpack

Bought this as my emergency jacket to keep in backpack on hikes, at soccer games and when traveling but because I love the fit and how light it is, I am bringing it everywhere.

Great windbreaker. I use it over my puff jacket when there is a chilly wind.

Packs Down Smaller Than Your Phone

This jacket is fantastic. It is a layer that I always throw in my pack and pretty much goes with me anywhere I go. The DWR is good and it's a fantastic layer to put on when it randomly starts to rain. It's great for chilly runs and the hood cinch makes sure it stays on tight when its raining.

Great Piece of Kit with Unfortunate Design Change

I just purchased my third iteration of the Houdini jacket, all with different designs. My first one from the early 2010 era used a more breathable and softer material, but wasnt as water resistant as the latter versions. My second Houdini served as my second skin for trail runs and ultras - wasnt as breathable as the earlier version, but the fit wa... Read Mores perfect and there were no issues with the design other than the screen printed logo peeling off over time. This most recent design retains a similar breathability/warmth as the last Houdini, however, the design/pattern is not too great. The pocket orientation should have remained horizontal instead of vertical - the pocket tends to flap out when unzipped and occasionally gets caught in the zipper when zipping up. The inner tag behind the neck also hangs exposed and upside down unless you fully zip up the jacket. This is a design flaw that should be addressed. Makes wearing the jacket a little sloppy looking and ruins the simplicity of the design. All this being said, I will always love what the Houdini was intended for and can live with the flaws of this iteration until it wears out.

Lightweight yet warm

Love this jacket. Very compact and lightweight. Perfect for the mild weather in the Southwest. I don't need a breast pocket but I hope Patagonia will add hand pockets before I die!

February 10, 2023

Would not recommend

Runs small, extremely thin. I have serious doubts it will hold up to much wear. Far too expensive for what it is. Other companies sell much more substantial windbreakers in the same price range. This jacket is comparable to jackets sold at big box department stores for half the price. Save your money.

Exactly what I wanted.

Beautiful Product

Perfect jacket for running, layering, and everyday use.

February 9, 2023

Packable and Portable

The beauty of this thing is how light and packable it is. Not good for an all day soaker but for 30 min run in the cold rain works great. Does well in the wind over an insulating layer. Handy for spring skiing when it's 40 at the base and 20 and windy up top.

February 9, 2023


Bought the jacket for a light stowable wind breaker. I have run in it several times, I like the light fabric and easiness to store, if needed. The sleeves seemed long for a small. The jacket doesn't breath as much as i anticipated and i have not tested in rain(knowing it is water resistant not water proof). Still like it and no regrets.

February 6, 2023

Pull a Houdini!

I took this Houdini windbreaker on my recent NOLA trip. It kept me dry and warm when it rained. It is a perfect jacket to travel with since it can be easily stowed away inside its built-in pocket. This is my new favorite travel jacket. A+!

An all season favorite. I just wish it came with a better waist draw string.

January 21, 2023

Minimalist. Great.

The Houdini is super simple without any bells and whistles but it makes a great wind shell to throw in a daypack or running vest. I know its not waterproof but the DWR does a good job of causing light precipitation to bead up and roll off.

Incredibly light weight. Seems to

Incredibly light weight. Seems to trap body heat nicely. Also seems to block wind. I received as a Xmas gift so I have only used it in layers for winter walks. Excited to use in the spring and fall.

January 18, 2023

Tried and true classic

Lightweight wind protection with a full zip. It does what it needs to, and it does it well. I wear mine on trail runs over a merino long sleeve when its below freezing. It really Amps up the retained heat for such a low weight cost when ounces count. Its a staple in my backcountry pack all 4 seasons.

January 18, 2023

Light, ultra packable and versatile

This jacket is a fantastic tool for the PNW. So often you just want the wind off of you with a light breathable, non-insulating layer. This does it. However, this new one seems to collect more moisture inside during exercising on cool damp days than the last one I owned for a few years. Still dries out quick.

January 8, 2023

Almost perfect

This is one of my go-to pieces and I always keep it in my kit year round. My main problem is with the pocket, as several others here have mentioned. I don't mind the size, as I always have other pockets to store my phone and wallet. It's that the pocket itself flaps around when the jacket is worn unzipped and it gets to be super annoying ...

If Patagonia could figure out a way to keep the pocket flat and tucked inside the jacket when the jacket is unzipped this would get five stars from me.

Poor quality for the price

Always with me

I love the houdini. I take it everywhere I go for its ability to lock in heat and shell out the wind. I can throw it on over a tshirt or a jacket easily to add some warmth. It also looks great!

December 8, 2022

Poorly constructed, lacks durability

I have washed mine twice. Both washings resulted in destruction of the waist and hood cinches. I thought the fracturing of the plastic waist cinch hardware was a fluke. After the second washing the hood cinch hardware was gone. The Patagonia gear I knew and loved in the 80s and 90s seems gone.

We're sorry to hear your Houdini hasn't held up as it should, Matthew! If it was washed in cool water in a gentle cycle and dried on low heat this shouldn't have happened. We will reach out to you with some options.

Great always-on-hand emergency layer

I'm female, 5'7", size 10, purchased a black Ms XXL that was intended as a surprise for my husband as an emergency layer for our walks because he always overheats and then runs cold. So far only I've been wearing it on my walks and I appreciate the versatility. I usually carry it in my backpack just in case I get too cold. It fi... Read Morets huge on me but I love it for the coverage. It goes a few inches below my butt and I have to fold the sleeves. No problem! It fits over and under any jacket I've worn so far. The hood provides great coverage and the rear adjustment is very helpful. The craftsmanship is excellent inside and out. I carry it inside a separate nylon pouch to provide a bit more protection than its own pocket would.

November 19, 2022

Light weight and durable

I wear the jacket for cold early morning runs and keeps the sting out of the cold weather without getting too hot. Love is so far!

Does what it says on the tin

I chose XL

I fall just outside L and usually I can get away with large. Happy I went with XL as it fits me perfectly.

I use this in the fall when the weather starts to turn. Mainly as a biking jacket to start off with, however a little into the ride I just throw it into my pocket!

Awesome wind layer!

I'm a typical women's medium and purchased this in a men's medium for an oversized fit that I could layer under - plus I liked the men's color offerings:). This is such a perfect layer.

Hey Joseph, thanks for the feedback. We'll inform our product team of your thoughts. The chest pocket also works as a stuff sack for the whole jacket, so it can pack down small.
