Highly breathable women's hybrid softshell vest for high pace activities in alpine environments. Perfect for running, ski touring, hiking or any other adventure where light warmth and high breathability are essential.
What makes it special?
What really sets Women's Pace Hybrid Vest apart is how it feels to wear the garment. It’s light, smooth and well fitted. It provides light insulation but will never overheat you. The fabrics are chosen for performance but also for comfort. Because we believe that when you feel completely comfortable you will also perform better. Light weather protection and easy layering without ever weighing you down, that’s the idea of Women's Pace Hybrid Vest.
How does it work?
Women's Pace Hybrid Vest is made with two fabrics that work together: Octa C9 Softshell over chest and shoulders and C9 Ripstop over your back. Octa C9 Softshell has a smooth, durable face and a backer with open filament fibers, creating a light insulation that never hinder breathability. The face breaks the wind and is treated with a PFAS-free water repellency finish that will shelter you from light snow or a quick rain shower. For the back, we have chosen C9 Ripstop, an ultralight and highly breathable fabric without insulation that is perfect for a part of the garment that is less exposed to weather.
What should I use it for?
Women's Pace Hybrid Vest is designed primarily for high pulse activities like running, ski touring, hiking or cross country skiing. It’s a highly versatile 4-season garment that you will find many uses for when you start exploring.

When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
The Circular label means that this product is 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.
The Recycled label means that this garment contains at least 50% recycled fibers (often more, see product description). The source is 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. Besides the production impact, the major shift is using "waste" as raw material instead of crude oil.
The Recyclable label means that the raw material in this product can be used for new products, instead of becoming waste. 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.
