We snagged a favorite from our alpine line and tweaked it for runners who live for heart-thumping days in the mountains. The new Houdini uses a highly breathable, weather-resistant 100% nylon ripstop fabric that blocks more wind than the previous version and is even more durable. The slimmed-down fit allows for a baselayer or light midlayers, the hood cinches with a single pull and won't smoosh your ears, and the cording, toggles and elastic cuffs are all trimmer and lighter in weight. Half-elastic cuffs seal the arms, and a drawcord cinches the hem. It stuffs snugly into its own single, small zippered chest pocket, which has a clip-in loop for attaching to your hydration-pack straps. A Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish coats the shell and the center-front zipper. With a reflective logo on the left chest and center-back neck.
