The Full Story+

For both good looks and performance, our Newtown Mac really is hard to beat.

Let’s start with the appearance. The laser-cut edges and bonded fastenings provide a contemporary twist on the classic mac design – as do features like the internal pocket with headphone port. Adjustable sleeve cuffs, removable hood, zipped secure pockets and clever tailoring on the sleeves are all worth a mention too.

Now for the technology. The outer is made from a tough polyamide with our Barricade™ technology – a waterproof and highly-breathable membrane – and finished with a Durable Water Repellency™ to stop the surface ‘wetting out’. All of the seams are taped too, and the lightweight scrim lining reduces bulk while helping to wick moisture from inside.

Finally, though it may be hard to believe, this protective, reinforced, smart waterproof is so lightweight, it can pack down and sit snugly in the bottom of any bag, ready for when the weather turns.

BarricadeBarricade™

Our barricade™ waterproof technology achieves an initial Hydrostatic Head (waterproofness rating) of 20,000 and a Moisture Vapour Transmission rating for breathability of 20,000 g/m2/24h - a very balanced position.

A further Durable Water Repellency™ finish boosts water repellency of the fabric surface and maintains 80% of its effectiveness after twenty washes.

3-layer Barricade™

An investment in a long-term high performing jacket for intense activity offering the lightest weight and the smallest pack size.

The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together with a lightweight wicking scrim - the three layers are sandwiched together.


Washing Instructions
Caring for your Rohan Barricade™ waterproof will improve its performance and longevity. Simply machine wash your item at 30C with a gentle non-biological, liquid detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric conditioners, dryer sheets, stain removers or bleaching agents as these can impair the fabric performance. Garments may be drip dried. To rejuvenate the finish tumble dry your waterproof on the coolest setting, ensuring it is fully dry to complete the process.

Your Barricade™ waterproof has a Durable Water Repellency finish on the surface of the fabric. Over time, with wear and exposure to the environment, this can degrade, stopping water beading up on the surface of the jacket. Cleaning your waterproof will help maintain the finish. If necessary a re-proofing product, such as Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

Elemental Protection
Wind - Highly Wind ResistantWind - Highly Wind Resistant

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.

Rain - Totally WaterproofRain - Totally Waterproof

Wet clothing transmits body heat nearly twenty-five times faster than dry. All clothing with this symbol is guaranteed to be totally waterproof. And highly breathable membrane technology means that you won’t get wet from inside either.

Functional Features
Secure Pockets x4Secure Pockets x4

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.

Our Technologies
BarricadeBarricade

Conventional waterproof fabrics cannot adapt to the changing weather outside and the changing micro-climate inside. Barricade™ is different, it is dynamic and responds to your body temperature and the humidity of the surrounding environment. The sweatier and steamier things get inside, the better the membrane works and the more vapour escapes.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 530gLightweight - Weight: 530g

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.

Packable - Pack Size: 1500mlPackable - Pack Size: 1500ml

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 9 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 9 hours

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.
