Light and compact – this easy to pack, down filled jacket is great for keeping warm in dry, cold conditions.
This lightweight down jacket is an essential piece of kit for the serious outdoor enthusiast. Its ultra-low weight makes it light and compact enough to stuff into a rucksack as an insurance against the cold and potential hypothermia.
When you're out and about it's the perfect layer to deploy when you want to ward off the possibility of a chill after stopping for a rest. Or perhaps you're going camping and want to make sure you've got enough warm clothing for a night under the stars. Whatever the reason for using it, we're confident you'll be very happy you remembered to bring it along.
We've made it using 80% down and 20% feather with a total fill weight of just 130 grams which means you'll hardly notice it in your back pack. It comes with two secure outer pockets, one of which converts into a Packpocket™ for stowage and the fabric incorporates a Durable Water Repellent ™ finish just in case you get caught in a shower.
The hidden internal elasticated cuffs and adjustable hem will ensure you'll retain as much heat as possible if you stop to enjoy the view or take a few pics. For added comfort we've added a soft touch micro fleece facing to the inner collar and chin guard.
A quality down layer like the Microlite Jacket is one of those items which, when you’ve experienced the benefits it can provide, you'll wonder how you ever managed without one. It's not an exaggeration to say that in certain circumstances, it could be a lifesaver.

Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.
Our durable water resistant finish, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the jacket, is designed to remain at 80% efficiency – even after 20 washes.
We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.
All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
