Lightweight, compressible, water-repellent down coat.
In the past, down-filled coats were great for keeping out the cold but not so good for keeping out the rain, and at the first sight of a shower would have the wearer anxiously looking for cover.
We're pleased to say that our Downtown Coat is unlike any down coat you've experienced before.
Cut for length and with a flattering fit, it's filled with a mix of 80% European white goose down and 20% feather, specially treated to make it water resistant. The durable, polyamide outer fabric also has a Durable Water Repellency™ finish, and whilst we won't claim to have created a waterproof down coat, you can be confident that if the weather takes a turn for the worse you won't have to run to the nearest bus shelter.
The Downtown Coat comes with two zipped hand pockets and an internal zipped security pocket, so it has plenty of storage to keep your small essentials nice and close. The internal pocket also doubles as a Packpocket™ so it can be compressed and packed down easily.
The soft stretch sleeve cuffs offer additional comfort and the stretch bound hood gives a closer fit to really help keep the warmth in. It's compressible and fits into its own Packpocket™ so it's really convenient to pack in your luggage if you're heading for colder climes, or can be used as a comfy travel pillow on the plane.
OUTER: 88% polyamide 12% elastane with Durable Water Repellency™. FILLING: 80% premium water resistant goose down 20% feather 650+ fill power (EU) LINING: 100% polyamide.
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 use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
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.
