Yvon Chouinard’s Patagonia has been going strong for almost half a century, and his brand’s track record of doing the right thing is pretty admirable. With benchmark transparency, supporting of grass roots environmental causes, and continuing to speak out against issues of injustice, it’s damn hard not to like Patagonia. Oh, and they also make super functional, well-made and reasonably priced gear that they’re willing to repair for you if anything goes wrong.
The Houdini Jacket is one of the brand’s cornerstone pieces of lightweight outerwear and it’s a magical bit of kit. It’s made from a 100% nylon ripstop fabric with a DWR finish, it’s extremely lightweight, fully packable, and even Fairtrade sewn. Coming in two striking colorways that are perfect for that transition from winter to spring, you’ll never be caught short with a Houdini in your daily loadout.
