I bet these are the latest VERY POOR CHOICE FOR UL BACKPACKING DO TO THEIR DRAMATICALLY REDUCED BREATHABILITY!You can read Richard Nisley's report here .
Some retailers have lower prices on some sale products than the Patagonia site..IE, Backcountry.com. Look around and maybe save even more.
Annapurna is right. After I exchanged an email with Patagonia CS they confirmthat Houdini on sale is their newest LESS BREATHABLE fabrics...Cheers!

Cheers Rog for that, now I know I have an old and new one, I used the newer one for a week in Scotland in May and found the breathability ok, it was 35f and very windy most days, it held up well in heavy rain showers.
The newer one is 9g lighter and will not fit in to the stow pocket.

Hi Rog,I will indeed hold on to the old one :-) the only thing is elastic on the arm opening was far too wide so I cinched them up with a few stitches.I was supposed to go to Colorado at the end of September, but put it off until the start of November as going to Arizona and back to Ireland a few weeks after, Simon also has go go.to Asia with work.
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, I looked a few of the capilene (which I really like and at 50% couldn't resist)and my sizes were sold out so I called the 800 # and they looked up a store near me who honored the pricing and the free shipping.At those prices I was happy to stock up a bit on some base layers that are comfortable and work well for me. Good Luck!
