Waterproof and breathable lightweight shell jacket stripped down to the very essentials. Recycled and recyclable. Fluorocarbon free. This garment is unisex. You still wear your regular size, we just didn’t put different labels in the garment since the model is no different for men and women.
Nothing but the very essential. The Shelter is an ultra minimalistic shell jacket built for serious mountaineering and everyday adventures. Light, strong, waterproof, breathable and equipped with just what you need and nothing else.
Freedom grows with reduction. When a garment is designed for one specific activity, it tends to be less useful for everything else. The Shelter is stripped down to the very minimum and therefore extremely flexible. It’s up to you if you would rather take it big mountain skiing, bicycle commuting, kayaking or something else entirely. The Shelter is a wearable multi-tool. Bring it in your backpack and you will be sheltered from any unexpected weather.
The Shelter is made in light, strong and stretchy Loop Hardshell. It’s a 3-layer water- and windproof shell with excellent breathability. The fabric is made from 70% recycled polyester and is completely free from fluorocarbons. To minimize weight and bulk, The Shelter has no zippers. Three buttons adjust the collar width and the hood is helmet compatible and fully adjustable. It has a generous kangaroo pocket with internal cell phone pocket and ventilation mesh.
If you are looking for a strong and super light mountaineering shell that has everything you need but nothing else, The Shelter is a great choice. Thanks to the lack of surplus features it packs down very small and weighs in at only 460g for a men’s medium/women's large. Live light, be free.
The Shelter is unisex. This means you still wear your regular size. The Men's size is shown first, then the Women's Size (S/M equals Men's Small and a Women's Medium). We just didn’t put different labels in the garment since the model is no different for men and women.
The Shelter is fully recyclable and we kindly ask you to return it to us when it’s completely worn out. This way we can use the raw material for new products and nothing goes to waste.
A durable fabric with mechanical stretch for high comfort. Tough and silent with a dull and smooth face. Waterproof, breathable, ripstop construction with good abrasion resistance.
Atmos™ Membrane is a hydrophilic membrane, not micro porous, and at the molecular-level moisture moves through the fabrics. The more moisture that is in circulation the greater the ability of the membrane to move moisture away from your body. With Atmos we are sure we have a membrane that delivers Houdini standards when it comes to high performance in an environmentally sustainable way, which no other membrane at the market can live up to. Atmos™ membrane is made from recyclable polyester.
Our shells with a membrane are made in 2, 2.5 or 3 layers. The construction of the garment differs depending on how many layers it has. Let us break it down for you: A 2 layer shell always has a separate lining on the inside to protect the membrane. A 2.5 layer shell is a lighter shell that has an outer fabric, which is laminated with a membrane. Then, a protective print is added over the membrane, forming the last layer closest to the skin. 3 layer shells have an outer fabric laminated with a membrane and a thin knitted or woven lining on the inside. This makes the 3 layer shell more durable than a 2.5 layer shell, but it is also a bit heavier.
This product is Bluesign® certified, meaning that the production is vetted by a third party to eliminate any harmful chemicals or substances right from the beginning of the production process. This benefits both people, animals and our entire planet.
This product is fully circular, meaning that it's made either from recycled and recyclable or renewable and biodegradable fibers. Most products in today's society are made in a linear lifecycle, where earth's resources are extracted, used and then discarded. This is not working in the long run and comes at a great environmental impact. Instead, we want to close the loop and reuse the material we already have. But we need your help. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us through the recycling units we have in all our own stores and at many retailers.
At least 50% of the fibers in this garment come from recycled sources, either recycled clothes or other sources like PET bottles. We mainly use recycled polyester, which has many benefits. It reduces both CO2 emissions and water use compared to virgin polyester. How much depends on the type of recycling. One of our suppliers show 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water use for mechanically recycled polyester. In addition to the impact in production, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The fabric in this garment is fully recyclable. Instead of becoming waste, the raw material can be used for new products. Our goal is that by 2030, we will take no raw material to our products from the earth's crust. Circular products, made from reycled and recyclable materials are a real game changer, but we need your help for the system to work. When your Houdini garments are completely worn out, please return them to us. We have recycle units in all of our own stores and at many retailers.

A sustainable choice
Circular design - Towards a world without waste
We believe in circular design. Sometimes we use recycled and recyclable synthetics and sometime natural fibers. Both have their merits, but the important thing is that we save the planets resrouces and don't create any waste. On a system level, it makes a huge difference.
