Highly breathable women's softshell jacket with light insulation for high pace activities in cold weather and high altitudes. Perfect for mountaineering, ski touring or hiking in demanding conditions.
What makes it special?
What really sets Women's Pace Jacket apart is how it feels to wear the garment. The shapes that follow your every move. The light, breathable materials that help regulate your body temperature. The soft and silent touch of the fabrics. The design and materialization has a perfect balance, ideal for high pulse activities in cold weather, when you need light weather protection but never want to become overheated.
How does it work?
Women's Pace Jacket is made with a new fabric called Octa C9 Softshell. The construction features 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. The whole idea is to give you enough protection for harsh weather but still give your body full freedom to breath and perform without becoming overheated. The jacket has two side pockets and drawstrings to adjust the hood and bottom hem.
What should I use it for?
Women's Pace Jacket is designed primarily for high pulse activities in cold weather like ski touring, mountaineering, hiking or snowshoeing. For alpine environments or colder climates it is definitely a 4-season garment, perfect for trekking or climbing when summer temps drop at high altitudes. It is a versatile garment, and the minimalist design opens up the possibilities.

Softshell or single layer shells are garments with a water repellent surface, but without a membrane.
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.
