Creating the right protective shell is about achieving balance between the amount a fabric breathes and how waterproof it is. Stopping water ingress is one thing, allowing vapour and body heat to escape is another.
Turning these two often opposing objectives into a harmonious solution is the constant quest at Rohan and the prize is all day comfort in virtually all conditions.
Our Barricade™ waterproof fabric 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.
A sound choice for complete waterproof protection and good breathability for active outdoor use - but where the very lowest weight and smallest pack size is not critical. Polyamide options offer durability and abrasion resistance.
The Durable Water Repellency™ treated, water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A loose lining protects the membrane and wicks away moisture.
The addition of a loose liner boosts breathability, protects the membrane and keeps the feel of the outer fabric soft and comfortable.
The addition of a liner marginally extends drying times.
A perfect fabric for an all-round leisure jacket or one for gentle low level walking.
The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A partial print is applied to the inside face of the fabric to protect the waterproof membrane.
Flexible and light.
A more economical process than a 3-layer.
Perfect for low intensity activity.
Durability is slightly reduced by replacing the protective scrim with a partial print.
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.
Lighter than a 2-layer waterproof with a mesh liner. Polyamide face fabrics are tougher and more abrasion resistant.
3-layer fabrics tend to be marginally less flexible.
Creates a casual looking, comfortable garment for changeable weather conditions. The waterproof liner is hidden.
These styles are made from a separate, water-repellent outer fabric with a liner. The liner is a bonded waterproof membrane with a lightweight protective scrim.
The drop liner is hidden.
Softer and more flexible than a traditional waterproof.
The outer fabric is only water repellent. In heavy rain the fabric will wet out - including the pockets. The liner still keeps you dry.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
