Patagonia Houdini Vest - Women's

Minimalist protection.

Aptly named for its ability to pack away into the smallest of spaces, the Patagonia Women's Houdini Vest delivers lightweight, easy-stashing protection from the elements. Weighing a scant 2.1-ounces and able to pack into a micro-sized stuff sack, this wind and water-resistant shell is ideally suited for minimalist backcountry missions where every ounce and cubic inch matters. It conveniently stows into the zippered chest pocket, which sports a reinforced carabiner clip for attaching to your favorite pack. Although it has a slim fit, it still offers enough room for wearing over your favorite base and midlayers.

Happy GF!

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

My GF wanted a lightweight running vest for breezy days ... she's training for her first half ironman ... this fit the bill just right. Very light and compresses down to next to nothing. But big performance in a small package. Sheds wind completely and does fine with light mist. a winner! She's 5'3" and is an athletically built muscular woman - the Small fit her just right
