A classic blouson jacket with hidden technical benefits.Read more…
The Fusion Jacket is our take on the modern blouson jacket.
Don’t let the understated style of the Fusion Jacket deceive you. It conceals performance features which make it as hard-working as it is good-looking.
As the name suggests, the Fusion Jacket is a combination of two very different fabrics.
The inside is our proven microfleece that offers an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and the outer shell is a tough woven polyamide to help keep the elements at bay.
As well as the two main pockets it features two hand warmer pockets, an internal security pocket plus a concealed sleeve pocket. And, as you might expect from Rohan, it’s also quick drying, crease resistant and really light.
It’s a go anywhere jacket that’s just as suitable for a world tour as it is for a trip into town or an amble in the woods.
OUTER: 100% polyamide, LINING: 100% polyester.
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.
Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

The Fusion Jacket is a good all-rounder - more casual in style and design than many of Rohan’s other jackets.
It actually keeps you surprisingly warm as it has microfleece material on the inside – I wore it recently in Switzerland for mountain walks and city sightseeing and it kept out the cold temperatures even at higher altitudes. The outside material is woven polyamide which provides good protection from strong wind.
The hem of the sleeve cuffs and the bottom of the jacket are ribbed which ensures extra warmth, and the high collar provides effective protection against the wind.
However, it does not offer much protection from rain – I used a lightweight waterproof outer shell over the Fusion Jacket when it rained. It would have been useful if this jacket had been more waterproof. And after being washed, it takes about eight hours to dry – so probably not suitable for adventurous trekking activities.
There are many storage options with two external zipped pockets and an internal zipped security pocket, plus a concealed pocket on the sleeve. There is so much space available for storing items that I sometimes do not need to carry a bag or rucksack for a day of walking or sightseeing.
