Perfect for trekking and winter travel but equally useful as an everyday winter gilet, our Icepack Vest provides functional, compressible insulation and understated good looks.
Offering an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio in conjunction with a versatile design, our Icepack Vest is an indispensable layering piece that’s perfect for cold-weather trekking, travel and everyday use.
It’s filled with Insuloft™, our superbly efficient synthetic insulation. Pound for pound, it’s almost as effective as natural down. Unlike natural down, however, it doesn’t lose its warmth the minute it gets wet, so it’s absolutely perfect for the damp, cold conditions that are the hallmarks of the British winter. We’ve gone for an 80gsm weight for a real insulation boost – where you need it most.
It’s also extremely easy to wash and dries very quickly – it certainly doesn’t require any sort of special treatment, protection or extra care – which is very reassuring if you’re on an extended trekking trip.
The outer is a lightweight blend of 90% polyamide and 10% elastane with a matte, cotton-like texture. It’s highly wind resistant, extremely soft and, because it’s been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish, it’ll shrug off light snow and rain showers.
The Icepack Vest is compatible with our Interchange™ system, which means it can be zipped into any compatible Rohan shell – turning your waterproof into a wadded shell. If you’re in town or out skiing, it’s sometimes really convenient to be able to put or remove both layers at the same time.
The vest features two cosy hand pockets, which are part-lined in micro-fleece; they feature large zip pullers that are easy to operate with gloved hands.
The two internal pockets are both zipped for security; one doubles up as a Packpocket™ into which the whole vest packs for convenient stowage.
Adjustable hem fine-tunes the fit and seals in the warmth.
Fabric: Outer: 90% Polyamide 10% Elastane with DWR™. Filling: Insuloft™ 100% Polyester wadding. Inner: 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.
For maximum performance with minimum palaver, zip one of our Interchange™ mid-layers into a matching shell. It makes a full-on, lined winter jacket without the fuss of lots of layers and too many pockets. Carefully designed attachment points at the collar and cuffs as well as the main internal zips make for a perfect fit. And of course you get the flexibility to convert the double jacket back to two whenever you feel like it.
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.
With a better warmth to weight ratio than fleece and far better performance when wet than down, Insuloft™ is the most practical and thermally efficient insulator available. It is an advanced synthetic that is tough, lightweight, packable, fast drying and easy to wash.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
