You've booked the tickets, found a hotel, and rented a car. Don't forget to do a gear inventory before you take off on a bucket list pow-hunting trip; the last thing anyone wants to hear you complain about on Norwegian fjords or Patagonian glaciers is a heavy jacket weighing you down. Swap out your resort duds for the Houdini Wayward Anorak Jacket and you'll stay warm without overheating on long ascents and faraway summits.
This ultralight jacket saves weight and bulk with a pullover design, and Houdini constructs it with its Bedrock Stretch 3L Hardshell fabric, which seals out wind and rain without feeling stiff or unwieldy on involved hikes. Houdini has a strong commitment to environmentally friendly textiles, so it uses recycled polyester to construct Bedrock Strethc, and a fluorocarbon-free Atmos membrane to seal out water without the use of harmful chemicals. Stash energy bars and your smartphone safely behind water-resistant zippers in the Wayward's multiple pockets, and tuck the jacket entirely into its own stow pocket during warmer ascents to save weight. Pit zips add ventilation, and a full-length side zipper lets you throw the jacket on quickly when the weather changes unexpectedly atop the summit. Adjustable cuffs and bottom hem, plus a helmet-compatible hood, round out this highly adaptable piece.
