Offering protection, comfort and rugged durability our Striders offer unrestricted freedom of movement for active trekkers, hill-walkers and mountaineers.
Rugged, durable and supremely comfortable, our Striders are the definitive trousers for active trekkers, hill-walkers and mountaineers.
It all starts with the fabric. Our advanced Multiflex™ soft shell fabric is a clever blend of polyamide and elastane. It offers the perfect balance between protection and comfort: it’s windproof but amazingly breathable, tough but soft next to the skin, warm but not too hot, extremely fast drying and amazingly high wicking. They offer a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Basically, if you’re out in the British hills anytime outside of the high summer, you’ll be wearing them. Usually on their own, sometimes with leggings underneath and occasionally with shell trousers over the top. And the great thing is, you’ll never really notice them. They just get on with the job, quietly and without any fuss.
The design is simple and uncluttered – but includes all the features you really need.
There are two zipped hand pockets, a zipped rear pocket and a zipped thigh pocket – sized to carry an OS map or a guidebook. All the pockets are mesh-lined for breathability and have zip pullers which are easy to operate with gloved hands. One pocket contains a handy accessory Tri-ring.
The waistband is fleece-lined for extra comfort and features rugged belt loops. The hems have snap-adjusters to allow you to vary the fit, cinch in the ankles and minimise the chance of snagging a crampon
The specially shaped leg combines with the inherently stretchy fabric to offer unbelievable comfort and freedom of movement. The fit is unrestrictive and slim, but not skin tight – you might want to feel like Rudolph Nureyev when you’re balancing up some granite slab, but we’re guessing that you probably don’t want to look like him when you’re relaxing in the bar at the end of the day.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments which carry our sun protection icon, have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. As a guide to the level of protection offered to covered areas, garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet; the reduction of associated health risks will vary with other factors such as skin type or individual medical history.
Fabric: Multiflex™ (92% polyamide, 8% elastane).

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.
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
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.
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.
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.
