The foundation of a functional outdoor outfit.
Travel with a week’s worth of these instead of a week’s worth of ordinary cotton briefs and you’ll be taking a trip to a whole new kingdom of comfort.
They’re lighter than cotton, they’re easier to wash and they’re far quicker drying – what’s more, they’re softer, they’re more supportive and they pack down smaller. They’re more durable and, no matter how often you wear them, they’ll never rot, stretch, fade or lose their shape.
They also take advantage of a breakthrough new technology – it’s called Polygiene™ and it’s a patented anti-microbial treatment that employs ionic silver to inhibit the growth of bacteria and keep odour to an absolute minimum. Basically, if you’re on a long trek and you’ve only got room for one pair of pants, these are the ones to go for!
Every serious trekker knows that 100% cotton trousers are a no-no. They soak up moisture and take ages to dry – which is why modern synthetics are so popular. So, why spoil it all with ordinary cotton underwear.
Start your day as you mean to go on – these are the most functional, most comfortable and most practical pants that money can buy.
Fabric: 88% polyester 12% elastane with Dynamic Moisture Control™ and Polygiene® odour control technology. Based on silver chloride made from recycled silver.

Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Comfort strategies are limited. We choose the right weight of fabrics, employ Airflow™ weaves and use Dynamic Moisture Control™ technology.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
Tiny traces of silver are distributed evenly throughout the fibres of a garment. These inhibit the development of microbes that can grow exponentially in warm and damp areas, resulting in mould and odour. It is permanent, it will not wash out or wear out.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.
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.
