I paid ~ $65 for my Houdini on shoebuy.
I haven't used the Stoic, but I've used/tested/tried enough garments to know by looking that the hood isn't comparable. In fact, the only garment with a hood similar to the Houdini right now is the Haglofs Ozo pullover.
I'll also take the extra weight for not having to redo the DWR, ever.
Edit: Houdinis are on sale direct from Paty for $87.50 right now.
