The Full Story+

Designed primarily for wearing around town in cold, changeable, winter conditions, our Downtown Jacket is filled with a high-quality blend of goosedown and feathers.

As you’d expect, it’s extremely warm and highly compressible. 

But, unlike many down jackets, it’s also very versatile – we’ve treated the down with a highly-effective and specialised hydrophobic treatment which dramatically increases the filling’s resistance to moisture.

Not so crucial at -30C - but in a typical UK winter, with temperatures hovering around 0C, there’s always a lot of moisture and precipitation in the air. Sleet and – that very British favourite – ‘cold rain’ are more common than snow. And, in these conditions, our Downtown Jacket – with its 650 fill power hydrophobic down – absolutely excels.

Our hydrophobic treatment means that the down absorbs 30% less water than untreated down – it also dries 60% faster and has no effect on the fill power and adds no (realistically measurable) weight. Most important of all, it retains its loft – and therefore warmth – after exposure to moisture. It’s also very durable – in tests, it’s been washed 20 times in a home laundry with no reduction in performance. And, for a down jacket, 20 washes basically means a lifetime.

The outer of our Downtown Jacket is a mix of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane which has been treated with our highly-effective Durable Water Repellency™ finish.

The two hand-warmer pockets are lined with soft micro fleece and feature easy-grab, glove friendly zip pullers. There’s also an internal pocket which doubles as a Packpocket™ into which the whole jacket packs for convenient stowage.

An adjustable hem and stretchy bound cuffs fine-tune the fit and seal in the warmth.

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.

Cold - HighCold - High

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.

Functional Features
Secure Pockets x2Secure Pockets x2

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.


Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.


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 Technologies
Durable Water RepellencyDurable Water Repellency

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.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 510.0000gLightweight - Weight: 510.0000g

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: 2250.0000mlPackable - Pack Size: 2250.0000ml

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: 10.0000 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 10.0000 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.
