Like Vollebak, Houdini is always searching for ways to future-proof its garments. The brand’s cutting-edge practices have birthed some of the outerwear industry’s most lauded technical garments, and with a dramatic, genre-wide push to become more sustainable in practice and design, Houdini has created the world’s first fleece jacket to battle against plastic waste.

The Mono Air Houdi is a sleek, subdued fleece that doesn’t enamor in terms of disjointed complexity. Instead, it revels in its simplicity — the key to a true circular design and the foundation upon which the garment is built. To ensure that the Mono Air achieves its goal for more conscious production, Houdini calls upon recyclable Polartec fabric to reduce microfiber shedding, as well as long-filament fibers that are trapped in small pockets of air, actively reducing degradation by up to five times the amount traditional garments. Dive deeper, and you’ll find that the garment is made from recycled polyester and features Polartec’s mobility-enhancing Power Air Light technology, making it an attractive proposition for climbers, cyclists, hikers, or other adventurists. When everything is said and done, return the fleece to a Houdini shop or recycling unit to contribute to the circular development process. Head to the brand’s website to pick up one of your own for $200.
