Rohan clothing uses the world’s most advanced fabric technologies. These technologies are hidden and will enable you to thrive in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can throw at you – wherever in the world you’re heading. Rohan clothing is protective, versatile, fast drying, tough, light and highly packable. It offers pure function and reliability, pared down and stripped out. And because Rohan clothing doesn’t look overtly technical, you can wear it for the everyday, taking the rough with the smooth.

Durable Water Repellency

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.

Sun Protection UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

Thermocore

Taking its inspiration from the composition of reindeer fur, our Thermocore fabric is made from polyester filaments – with a hollow core. And it’s this hollow core that’s the secret to Thermocore’s incredible insulating properties. Dry air has a tiny thermal conductivity – 24 times less than water – and our Thermocore fabric simply traps more of it than an ordinary, solid fibre. And if it’s good enough for reindeer… 

Dynamic Moisture Control™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Insect Shield®

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each garment is treated with permethrin – an invisible and odourless ingredient that helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges.

Anti Odour Silver

Garments treated with our Anti Odour Silver technology benefit from the natural antimicrobial properties of silver. Tiny traces of silver, distributed evenly throughout the garment, inhibit the growth of bacteria reducing mould and odour. This treatment is permanent – it will never wash or wear out.

2-Layer Barricade

The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

The waterproof fabric of the garment has two layers. The water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together. In addition, a loose lining protects the membrane from the inside.

2.5-Layer Barricade

The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

The water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together and then protected by a print to be very lightweight. This added 0.5 layer helps to keep you comfortable and the membrane protected.

3-Layer Barricade

The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

The water-repellent outer fabric, the PU hydrophilic membrane and a protective liner are bonded together to form a single fabric. As a result, these jackets are lightweight whilst maintaining great durability.

Drop-Liner Barricade

The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

The garment has a non-waterproof outer fabric with a waterproof inner fabric that is stitched to the garment. These waterproof walking trousers can look just like your regular trousers.
