W's Leeward Jacket


Waterproof and breathable shell jacket suitable for four season use. Light, stretchy fabric in a robust form made to last for ages.

Houdini is a counterweight to fast fashion and consumption culture. Our goal is always to design garments that last for as long as possible. Timeless aesthetics, long-lasting materials and sturdy, repairable design features. Leeward Jacket is made to be used hard all year around. It’s light enough for trekking in the summer and sturdy enough for skiing in the winter. If you are looking for a shell jacket to use for many years, and probably pass on to your children, this is the one.

Leeward Jacket is made in Loop Hardshell™, a waterproof and breathable shell fabric constructed with high density fibers for superior durability. Compared to other fabrics with equal toughness, this fabric is amazingly light. It has a dull and smooth surface and mechanical 2-way stretch. It’s made from 70% recycled fibers and is completely recyclable. The jacket has a helmet compatible hood and pit zip vents. It’s fully seam sealed and all the zippers are water repellent. Our Made to Move design concept provides full freedom of movement.

Leeward Jacket is a real workhorse, and if you want a jacket that works all year round for just about anything, this is a great choice.

Leeward Jacket is recyclable and when you eventually wear it out (probably around the time when we have flying cars) please bring it back to us for recycling. The raw material can be used for new products. We have recycling units at all our own stores and at many retailers.

    Membrane: Atmos™

    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.

    Wash and Care Instructions

    Synthetic materials

    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.

    • Air clothes instead of washing to save water, energy and to make the garments last longer.
    • Use a washing bag to protect your garments and to prevent fibers from leaking. When cleaning the bag and filter in the machine, make sure to wipe it clean and throw the lint in your trash can. Never rinse it in water since we don’t want the fibers to end up in lakes or oceans.
    • Machine wash, max 40 °C/104 °F.
    • Use mild environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose.
    • Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
    • Tumble dry on low heat.
    • Iron on low heat.
