Product Summary

The Houdini Pace Hybrid Vest is a lightweight, durable, and versatile addition to your running gear closet. Designed for year-round use, the Houdini Pace Hybrid features a softshell fabric that provides light insulation on chilly days while remaining breathable on those warmer runs. The fabric is treated with DWR to prevent water from saturating you and your vest. In addition, the fabric boasts a ripstop design, successfully creating a durable vest that is built to last.

The vest has a dual zipper design which means it can be used to open the vest from the bottom up to let in more air as you heat up during your run. There are also dual zippered chest pockets which are big enough to securely carry a few small items.

And, the Houdini Pace Hybrid Vest is part of the Responsible Collection as it is made with recycled material. Unfortunately, there are only two colors to choose from and the sizes are limited (small to large available). And it would have been nice to see some reflective detailing on it.



Softshell: 100% recycled polyester, a fluorocarbon-free DWR finish, C9 ripstop
