Protection perfected, Rohan distilled.
Our minimalist Windshadow Jacket is aimed at outdoor enthusiasts who recognise that breathability, rather than absolute waterproofness, is usually the key to comfort in the hills and that packability and portability are usually more pertinent than complete protection.
Designed to work in a technical layering system, our Windshadow Jacket is highly wind resistant, more breathable than the most breathable waterproof, offers a good level of resistance to showers, ultra-lightweight and phenomenally packable.
It’s great for active uses such as running and cycling and it’s pretty much essential for serious trekking, backpacking or hillwalking. And, because of its understated, ‘matt’ appearance, it makes a great jacket for travel and general wear.
Made from a lightweight, closely-woven polyamide with a micro-ripstop construction and our Durable Water Repellency™ finish, it offers high levels of both abrasion and tear resistance and just enough rain protection to keep you dry if you’re caught in a shower.
Two zip-fastened hand pockets and a chest pocket offer sufficient storage space for outdoor essentials such as a compass or GPS. The inside, zipped pocket doubles up as a Packpocket™ into which the whole jacket stuffs for convenient, compact storage.
The hood features elasticated bindings for a close, comfortable seals and rolls away neatly into the collar when not in use.
Fabric: 100% polyamide with DWR™.
Pack Size: 600ml
Drying Time: 5 hours
Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are Highly Wind Resistant.
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 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, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
