“When we created our most advanced hard shell we wanted to change the way it feels to wear a shell. To achieve a feeling of full freedom of movement, we had to rethink the foundations of the design process. Instead of a traditional 2-dimensional pattern construction, we decided to drape the garment from a single piece of fabric on a body replicating the movements of mountaineering and freeride skiing. We call the technique Made to Move, and the product is Rollercoaster.” says Jesper Danielsson at Houdini Design Team.
This technique utilizes the fabric’s natural stretch to make sure that you will never feel restricted again. At the same time, many weak points from extra seams and tapings are eliminated. As with all Houdini shells, Rollercoaster is made from recycled polyester, so when you eventually wear it out, it can be recycled, over and over again. Rollercoaster is totally free from fluorocarbons.
The nitty gritty

Houdini’s mission is what they call “core comfort for body and soul”. This means no compromises when it comes to performance, sustainability and style. A substantial part of Houdini’s products has been transformed from the conventional linear to the circular product lifecycle and can be recycled through a closed-loop recycling system.
Houdini delivers products from underwear to shell layers with the ultimate vision of enabling a “maximum experiences, zero impact” lifestyle.
