Staying dry in nasty weather just got easier. The Square is an ultra minimalistic waterproof unisex shell skirt. It’s constructed as a onesize wraparound skirt and made in tough, stretchy and silent Loop Hardshell.
Sometimes you have to think new to solve old problems. How do you shelter yourself from unexpected weather when you are out and about? We wanted to make a garment that you can throw on and off without effort, light enough to always bring in your pack and still shelter you like a pair of rain pants. The Square is the answer.
The wraparound construction makes is very easy to put on and off and give the garment a wide size span (one Square fits the entire family). The garment is made i Loop Hardshell, a lightweight waterproof and breathable shell fabric. It’s very durable but also silent, stretchy and smooth. The slit in the back provides great freedom of movement.
So when should I use The Square? Whenever you need to shelter yourself from the rain but don’t want to wear shell pants. Wear it over a pair of softshell pants on a ski tour or over your regular outdoor pants on a hike. Wear it over your jeans when you’re waiting for the bus on a rainy autumn day. The lightweight construction weighs in at only 214g so you can always bring it in your bag.
We can highly recommend The Shelter if you want to always be ready for the unexpected weather. It’s a progressive and minimalistic alternative to rain pants.

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.
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 Bluesign® Label means 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.
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.
