Houdi-houdi-hoo!

When the clock strikes send-it-o'clock, nothing—not even that devious thing called weather—can stop you from bee-lining it to the bike park. So evade the elements and their foxy ways with Houdini's Full Zip Houdi Fleece Jacket. Made for answering the ever-wild call of the gnarly, this slim-fitting, minimalist jacket falls at the hip and comes with a hidden drawcord at the hem, making it perfect as a standalone piece or layered under your ski shell.

Extremely soft and warm!!@

This hoodie has just about everything you could ask for from a lightweight midlayer. The fleece lining is soft and warm. There's a cloth zipper backing and cover, so you never come into contact with the metal. There's a hem adjuster to tighten things up. Two zippered pockets, and two internal stash pockets (no zipper though). And thumb holes, can't forget the thumb holes!

I do have a few "buts" though. While the technical details are great, the fit isn't perfect. The arm holes are small, so there's some of that cutting-into-your-pits action going on. And it's a little short. Lifting my arms over my head results in belly draft. And the hood is very small. So the fit is weird. Is it worth the money? Not for me, because fit is everything, but for other ladies out there, this is a damn good hoodie.

Do you think sizing up would help? Or would the arms then be too long?

I actually think sizing up would make it too baggy in the middle. I think the XS is geared more toward "petite" women (as opposed to tall and lanky). Or maybe just someone who doesn't have climbers arms. :-/

I love this hoody but for $200 I already have some pillage on it after a couple months of use, which is disappointing.

Everyday companion

    Bought my first Houdi six yrs ago - love it and will wear it til I tear it (still going strong!). Just add another favourite colour now and then to keep them going even longer.

    Houdi summit!

    I took my Houdi on its first summit and was extremely impressed. The hike was super windy, without the fitting hood I would have lost my fav hat and the thumb holes were lifesavers for keeping my hands warm.

    Most importantly, I was pleasantly surprised by the windshield the fabric played. The others on the hike wore windbreakers to stay warm, with the Houdi I never had to break mine out!

    Hoods are everything.

    This is a beautiful piece I've used several times, so far just casually. I've considered taking it camping but can't get over the thought of getting it dirty or stuffing it in a backpack, it's too pretty (the on-site picture does not do it justice!)



    Once I get over trying to keep it shiny and new, I'll use as intended: in the backcountry hiking and snowboarding. Mostly, I'm looking forward to using this for winter adventures since it basically feels like wearing a snugly blanket.



    Features:



    *True to size. I'm 5'7, 130 lbs and the medium fit perfect with room for a base layer underneath.

    *THE HOOD! Nobody wants a bad hood, talk about a deal-breaker. It zips up to keep your face protected and has cord adjustments to make it even tighter.

    *Thumb holes

    *Mesh pockets

    *Drawstring adjustments on the bottom to cinch it in.

    *Really, really warm and cozy.



    The downfall, price. There are a lot pieces on the market that can satisfy the same mid-layer needs, but they probably don't have the standards of sustainability practice that Houdini does. Unfortunately being environment friendly does come with a price tag, but I'll pay it.



    Looking forward to taking this on many outdoor, chilly adventures.

    Hoods are everything.

    Amazing Fit

    I've never had a fleece that fit me as well as this does. It's as though I went and had it made specifically for me. It has become my go-to and is comfortable and flattering. I love the thumb holes at the wrists and how tailored it is. Great product!

    New Favorite!

    This jacket is seriously amazing. It is so warm and cozy, yet light weight and stretchy. The fit is super flattering and I love the longer sleeves with thumb-holes!! This jacket has definitely become my favorite fall staple! Worth every penny.

    This Houdini Hoodie has the perfect balance of a sleek, smooth exterior and cozy fleece interior. It wont hold stains and wicks away moisture, its an easy go to layering piece when I'm not sure what the temperature will be.

    The Houdi puts you on cloud 9--literally

    I'm obsessed with this hoodie. It's almost impossible to describe the cloud-like feeling that this jacket has. It's super soft on the inside and sooooo comfortable. I use this as a layering piece underneath a shell or even down jacket for cold Seattle nights - it's great too to throw on when it gets chilly on a hike. The fit is perfect and I will definitely be buying this in a bunch of colors.

    I Love the Houdini Full Zip Power Houdi Fleece Jacket, it is seriously so warm and soft. The cut is also really flattering. Whenever I wear it I get so many compliments. I am petite 5'3" and I have a small that fits well, could do an XS if i didn't want to wear anything too bulky underneath.

    More than a hoodie!

    I like to refer to this piece as a Jacket because it's so versatile and worth every penny! Great as a layering piece on the cold temp days and never too bulky under shells because of it's awesome stretch! The fit is slimmer to body but forgiving in movement- love its ability to morph to whatever activity I'm wearing it for. This piece also looks sharp, I can wear it as an everyday piece and not look like I'm going into the mtns or out for a run. Enjoy!
