Alpine Houdini Jacket (Men's)
In Stock Product Number: 39221
The problem is that you never see it coming on the Diamond. One moment you're climbing vertical, east-facing granite at 13,000 feet. The next you're staring at heavy, dark clouds boiling over the summit from the west. Seconds later, lightning cracks. The Alpine Houdini's ultralight waterproof/breathable membrane and absence of anything superfluous serves the simplicity crucial to alpine rock climbing - and its afternoon thunderstorms. It is emergency rainwear for climbing that also blocks wind and traps your heat on chilly belay ledges, packs into its single internal chest pocket (with clip-in loop) and seals up with elastic wrist cuffs and a single-pull drawcord waist. With helmet-compatible, single-pull adjustable hood.

Comments about Patagonia Alpine Houdini Jacket (Men's):
I was highly impressed with this jacket on many levels. Not only a highly breathable, lightweight jacket, but durable climbing against granite walls.
Great in afternoon rainstorm runs in the south, to bitter dry high alpine climbs out west. I have tried to find a situation this summer to give a negative response to this jacket, but for the heat of the summer and beyond this has become a staple piece in my collection. I would not recommend for dead of winter, but worked out great in the rockies even when a snow storm piled ontop of us. I would rate a strong 3 season Jacket.
