Power Houdi Fleece Jacket

Bear the cold for the sake of powder and face shots thanks to the Houdini Women’s Power Houdi Fleece Jacket. This insulating hooded fleece stretches to let you move freely, and the moisture-wicking Polartec fleece keeps you dry when you heat up under your shell. The high collar helps protect your chin and neck from cold winds, and the long sleeves feature thumbholes to ensure they won’t ride up.

Comfy Cozy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

Runs LONG in the torso and arms - great for someone tall like me! I love how soft it is, putting it on is like receiving a hug; you're instantly warm, comforted, and cozy.
It feels like slipping into a hot tub, or a warm and velvety chocolate fountain.

  • Size Bought: medium

I really like this flattering cozy mid layer option. The warmth to weight ratio is outstanding. I find myself reaching for this over other jackets because I know it will always look and feel good.

Soft, stretchy fabric

    I love this fleece. It's got a stretchy, almost bouncy fabric that's still cozy with a super soft interior. I love that the hood fits over a climbing helmet if you need it to. Houdini has done so much in terms of sustainability, it's well worth the cost.

    Soft, stretchy fabric

    Great Layering Option!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I have put this through the ringer and it is my go to fleece for cold trips. The polartec power stretch is unbeatable for warmth, comfort, and function. It has a hefty price tag due to the sustainable production and fully recycled content, but it worth the price. It has a very athletic/trim fit so keep that in mind for sizing. I typically wear a small and like things a bit more snug so it was perfect for me.

    Soft, Warm, and Flattering

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is an excellent fleece! I used it a lot as a mid-layer for snowboarding and felt super warm without overheating - perfect combination! I got mine in the Utah Red - the color is exactly like the photo! Lovely shade. Flattering fit and soft and comfy fleece that I reach for just wearing around the house, too.
    Thumb holes and zippable pockets. What more do you need? An added bonus is that the materials are recycled and made in an eco friendly way! So awesome.

    Great zip up fleece/sweatshirt. The stretchy outter fabric gives it a great look that can be worn in town or on the mountain. I got the Last Round Red color and love it!

    The Best Zip Up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    I absolutely fell in love with this zip up from the moment I put it on.

    The inside feels like soft velvet, the outside has an athletic feel. This is my now favorite zip up for road trips, hiking, and layering under my snowboard jacket.

    The Best Zip Up

    A must have!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    This jacket is amazing for everyday use or as a mid-layer. The fabric is Polartec Powerstretch and is incredibly soft and stretchy. The hood was comfortable and I even used it for sleeping on cold nights in the desert. The fit is slim but not constricting.

    A must have!

    Living in it Forever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I'm not always the biggest fan of fleece because it can look too frumpy or too sporty - this is a great cut that is neither of those things! I went on a road trip to the Idaho Panhandle last week and I wore it literally every day. It performed great in the alpine in the wind while hiking and perfectly cozy at camp in the evenings. I look forward to testing it out on the slopes this winter! I typically wear a Small in Patagonia and a Medium in Arc'teryx and bought a size Small in this jacket and it's a perfect fit.

    Living in it Forever


      Got this hoodie about a year ago (last year's light grey color), and it is still one of my favorite essentials in my pack. The fit is great (ordered a small - 5'4" athletic. It is nice and long, plenty of movement in it. The hood is nice and big, and can close down around your face. The sleeves are long and that helps to make the thumb holes extremely usable. The fleece is nice and soft, and has stayed that way after many washes (no dryer). It is warm, and works great under a windproof/waterproof shell. It is relatively lightweight, and not as bulky as some fleeces - pretty packable. I would consider ordering another - it has held up great under constant use. There is some pilling, where velcro has snagged it, other wise perfect!

      Stylish warmth

        I've been anxiously anticipating this hoody for quite a while. I first got the 'clean cut red' color, but decided to exchange it, due to the color and fit. The fit is long and a bit boxy, a bit larger than their Eco Lounge Hoody. I usually wear xs or sm, depending on brand, and for Houdini's Eco Lounge Hoody, small fits me perfectly, but for the Power Houdi, I needed to go down a size. It's not very tailored, so if you have a hourglass shaped body, it will not compliment your figure. The 'clean cut red' is a somewhat pale red color, not very vibrant, although I really love the hood liner color, which has a stripy red pattern. I exchanged it for an xs in 'granite' and I love it. The zipper is red, which makes the hoody look very stylish. Unfortunately the hood liner doesn't have the stripe pattern, but it's red nonetheless, and it shows a lot of contrast with granite body. The hoody is made of Polartec Power Stretch, I expect it to be a mid weight layering piece. I'll report back with the functional aspect once I've had a chance to use it in non-casual situations.

        It is hard to..

          It is hard to review the "Women's" Power Houdi Fleece jacket when a "Men's" Power Houdi Fleece arrived.
          So after paying out of pocket for the shipping and handling + tariffs to send it back. You tell me that I have made the mistake you do not carry mens versions of that item. However the label written and item has "Men" clearly on it.

          The item I purchased on sale including the return shipping has saved me no money, no time, and overall just given me one big headache.

          So as a first time customer with Backcountry, I think it will be my last.

          lightweight and warm!

            I just received this jacket. Its very lightweight, super soft and really warm. I'm always cold and I love this jacket. I usually take a small or medium, size 4-6. I ordered this in a medium and it fits perfectly.

            Great jacket, best fleece ever, but Backcountry send me a Men's treeline jacket when I ordered a Woman's treeline, so do not order the treeline coulor.

            Best ever

              I bought this houdini in Sweden, had it on the whole winter under my shell jacket, and I didnt freeze. Had it on during cold days in Kansas and wearing it today in Canada. Its the best fleece I ever had. My brother working as a ski instructor also has one and I bought one for my dad in christmas present. Have had different kind of fleece but this is absolutely the BEST!!

              LOVE IT!!!

                Probably the only hoodie you will ever need! I bought this in sweden during my last trip and got a stunning dark purple color that should come out here in the US soon. Anyway, the fit is amazing, not too snug yet not bulky. The fleece material is so comfortable that I never want to take it off. The jacket has 2 zip pockets as well as drawstring cord at the bottom. I use this hoodie when I go out rock-climbing (which is what the company actually designed it for)....I love the freedom and mover ability I have in it.

                The black color as well as the dark green and the blue is also stunning! They are true to size which makes it easy in regards of fitting

                Houdini Power Hoody

                  Got this jacket (XS size) in the mail today and was a bit disappointed with the colour and fit. The actual colour is not as green as in the image. Rather it's more like a pale pastal light green. A bit too pale for me. The sleeves are quite long too (although I believe this might be a design feature and intentional). The length of the body is also quite long (the waist sits below my hip bone). Also the cut is slightly loose. But I am 147cm tall (short) and 46kg. So I probably fall below average for small!

                  I also bought the Houdini Transit Lounge Hoody which I love. The colour is true to life. This product might have the same cut as the Power Hoody but it seems to be more slim fitting. It could be that the material is lighter/ thinner. I love the button detail and hood design too!

                  These two products from Houdini give me the impression that their sizing is slightly on the larger size. So if you generally buy XS in other brands, like me, then I would be hesitant to buy a Houdini product in XS because it will most likely be less fitted then what you're used to.

                  I also bought a Marmot Power stretch hoody (in blue). Which is totally ace! I love this jacket and put it on immediately. The colour in the photo is true to life. Also, the fit is better than the Houdini products. The XS is ideal for me. It sits at my hip bone and the arm length is right. It might be that Marmot have a slightly different sizing system that fits my body shape.

                  The reason the arms and the length of the hoodie is a bit longer than normal is because this jacket is designed for rock climbing which means that when your hands are above your head the jacket won't be to short on you.

                  How to Measure:
                  For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
                  Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
                  Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
                  Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
                  Inner Leg:
                  Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
                  Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
