The Full Story+

The Troggings Jacket is a fantastic softshell that offers the perfect balance between protection and breathability. It’s rugged and durable, and with the mountain hood you’ll be ready for whatever the day brings you.

The fabric, a blend of polyester and elastane, has a brushed interior offering a good level of warmth on chilly days and with our Durable Water Repellent™ finish, you’ll also get a useful level of protection from showers. It’s also stretchy which provides completely unrestricted freedom of movement – nice to have all the time, but really handy if your day in the hills involves sections of scrambling or climbing.

Our Troggings Jacket features a close-fitting mountain hood with stretchy bound edges to form a close seal around your face. The two chest pockets are large enough to fit an OS map, they’re also mesh lined so they can be left unzipped to double up as vents when the going gets hot. The handy location of the pockets means they won’t get in the way of shoulder or hip straps if you’re wearing a backpack too. An adjustable hem locks in the warmth and fine-tunes the fit.

If you’re after a softshell for active outdoor use, then the Troggings Jacket makes a fantastic choice.

Fabric: 90% polyester, 10% elastane with Durable Water Repellency™.

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.


Our DWR ™ finish is an advanced treatment which dramatically increases the water repellency of our fabrics. On its own, it offers a useful level of shower resistance; used in conjunction with our Barricade™ technology, it reduces the tendency of the face fabric to wet out and maximizes breathability.

Improved version of the Troggings Jacket


This really is an excellent jacket. I have a previous version, which is very good, but this is better. The hood is excellent - easy to pull up, and it stays in position too. This jacket is more waterproof than its predecessor, and the fit is better (no elasticated waist so it looks neater when the jacket is open). The higher pockets are a great idea. My wife ordered the ladies' Troggings Jacket - no doubt she will write her own review, but simply to add that she too is delighted. Like another reviewer, I have several Rohan jackets for all weathers - they are irresistible!

Bought the green troggings jacket last year and was really happy with it. In December wore only a Merino wool base layer and the troggings jacket. I just wish it had two additional lower pockets for hand warmers. It would then be perfect. Rohan please oblige!

troggins jacket review


I have to agree with the above review, absolutely

fantastic jacket for comfortable fit and all purpose wear. Will shake off most showers but have not tested in torrential rain yet. I find the jacket ideal for dog walking with the higher hand pockets coming in handy for the obligatory

Poo bags!!!

Great lightweight soft shell


How many Rohan softshells does a man need? ...Three!

No surprise then that it took me a while to get round to buying the troggings jacket that I had been eyeing for some time.

Given my 7 fleeces (honestly),

3 waterproofs, 12-15 shirts,

10 or so pants, et al,

you may understand why Phil at Preston Rohan suggests I ask the forgiveness rather than than the floor permission of my long suffering wife.

Why so much kit: they all have their place. Different functions and different seasons. There is no substitute for quality and the troggings jacket is no exception.

I will use it across all 4 seasons either for layering or as a stand alone. Currently mainly for dog walking but it will be on the feĺls as soon as my new knee is up to it!

It has great wind resistance and repels light rain well. The hood works very well considering how simple it is.

A good buy

I really wanted this jacket but felt I could not justify having another jacket! So glad I decided not to listen to myself. Absolute brilliant and looks great in the green for a change as I have loads of black gear and people may think I'm trying to look like James Bond. Tested today in the rain and the water repellency is terrific for a softshell. Well done Rohan you have hit the jackpot with me again. Perfect fit for me in Medium from the size charts. Everything perfect even length on arms (for me). One possible upgrade would be cuff holes but that is it. Pockets are great and much easier to get to than in the "normal position". Deep pockets are great for keys, dog treats, money, etc. Love it!
