Our Borderline Zip Jumper offers relaxed good looks in conjunction with technical performance.
It’s made from mid-weight polyester fleece with an attractive knit-effect outer and a soft brushed inner to boost its thermal efficiency.
The classic half-zip opening and stand up collar adds a bit of style and makes this easy-to-live-with fleece a versatile addition to your casual wardrobe.
It is durable, crease resistant and quick drying too so it’s great for travel, everyday or outdoor use. Just the job for a walk in the country or lunch in a nice pub.
100% polyester fleece.
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.

The Borderline Zip Fleece Jumper is a mid-weight polyester fleece and keeps you very warm indeed. There is an appealing knit-effect pattern on the outside that actually looks better in reality than the Rohan website photos, and the inside has a soft brushed inner which provides a lot of insulation.
The material does not crease – you can take it out of a rucksack or suitcase and put it straight on. It takes about five hours to dry after washing – not surprising as it is a relatively thick fleece, weighing almost 500g.
The zip is easy to open and close, and the stand up collar provides great protection from wind and cold temperatures. I wore this fleece when travelling in mountain areas of South Sulawesi, Indonesia, and it was very beneficial when the temperature dropped significantly after sunset.
It is a relaxed fit, and some people may find they end up taking a size smaller than expected. I was in between the medium and large sizes, but happily stuck with my traditional Rohan size of large.
The only two issues I have with this fleece are that the sleeves are slightly too long for me, so I usually roll back the sleeve at the cuff – it actually feels and looks fine as a result. Also, it would have been useful to have had zipped pockets so items could have been stored – there are no pockets in this fleece. Nevertheless, it is a high quality product, and I cannot wait to wear it again on my next trip to the mountains.
