Extremely light and highly packable waterproof women's shell jacket that will keep you sheltered in any blizzard but still takes no more space in your pack than a small orange.
What makes it special?
At the early stages of development this garment was nicknamed The Orange. Why? Because the brief to our design team was to create a fully waterproof, stowable shell jacket no bigger than an orange in its packed state. The idea is that you should always be able to fit this jacket in your backpack and be prepared for any unexpected mountain weather. Full weather protection in an unbelievable light and compact form - That’s The Orange Jacket.
How does it work?
From a layering perspective, the idea with Women's The Orange Jacket, is actually to enable you to wear other garments more. Let’s face it: If you head out for a run, hike, ski tour or long climbing route, a waterproof jacket is rarely the most comfortable option (usually you want to maximize breathability). But you should still never head out without one in case of unpredictable mountain weather. That’s why we designed a fully waterproof shell jacket that you can bring without any effort and still always be ready if bad weather hits. And when the need arises, the ultralight, smooth and silent fabric makes the garment extremely comfortable to wear.
What features does it have?
Women's The Orange Jacket is a minimalistic jacket and to save weight and bulk, we have not added any extra features except the essentials. One chest pocket and a hood that can be rolled down. The main feature of the garment is the concept and how it feels to wear it. This is no ordinary shell jacket but an entirely new breed of ultralight smoothness that you will barely feel that you wear but that will still keep you dry in any storm.
When should I use it?
Women's The Orange Jacket is designed for mountain sports where weight and packability are essential: Runnings, ski touring, mountaineering or trad climbing. When you keep it in your pack, you won’t know it’s there, and when rough weather hits, it will keep you dry and happy. It will of course also work as a super light and comfortable rain jacket for all those times when you’re not charging through the mountains.

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.
