Wisp Jacket

Whether you are ski touring to a new chute, mountain biking starting in high alpine elevations, or rappelling from crushing a big climb, you'll appreciate the versatility of the Houdini Wisp Jacket. With the combination of ultra-breathable C9 Ripstop and Polartech Alpha insulation, the Wisp balances the line between constant airflow and warmth so you'll never feel overworked when skinning towards the summit. Stretch fabric allows movement where you need it, and abrasion panels are added in key areas where pack straps or harness may damage over time.

  • A breathable midlayer perfect for any activity
  • Polartech Alpha is breathable and regulates temperature
  • C9 Ripstop fabric is durable while allowing airflow
  • Stretch fabric allows for extended range of motion
  • Zippered side pockets keep essentials secure

Pretty Sweet with some minor flaws

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

I used this jacket for 2 weeks off and on, but I found myself reaching for other items usually. The inner lining is almost like a mesh pattern to add airflow, but that makes it really easy to snag on things when trying to get your arms in. I like that the jacket has tapered forearms, but my hangnails and watch felt otherwise.

The item does live up to its versatile touting. I used to bike around town, hike, and just for everyday use. I was biking in about 55F and sun, but didn't get drenched in sweat or feel like I was overheating that bad, even with 20 lbs of groceries on my back.

I got it in Medium so it would look a little more fitted. I probably could have moved up to size L to make it more comfortable for layering.
