Ultralight, ultra-packable, ultra-warm – the Mistral Jacket offers amazing insulation using its supremely soft, technical drop liner and plenty of water resistance thanks to its micro ripstop polyester outer with Durable Water Repellency™ finish.Read more…
Offering a reassuring level of protection from showers, cold and wind, the Mistral Jacket’s light weight and small pack size make it a great choice for taking on hillside walks and coastal adventures.
The technical, high loft yarn uses an 8 ‘pronged’ fibre, similar to a honeycomb in shape, which traps pockets of air against the body. This clever material is far more thermally efficient than traditional fleece in both dry and wet conditions. Visually, the lining has a striking pattern, and is also incredibly soft against the skin for an exceptionally comfortable fit.
The ripstop polyester exterior, despite feeling soft, is very hard-wearing and with the addition of the Durable Water Repellency™ finish, it offers great resistance to showers and prevents the garment from wetting out.
The genius of the yarn means that it has excellent warmth to weight ratio. The reduction in bulk and the lightweight exterior fabric results in an extremely packable garment, weighing only 325g. And with the addition of a Packpocket™, it’s easy to stick it in your bag and take with you on your adventures.
The yarn has great wicking properties which make it breathable, but also give it a quick dry time. And you can wash it on a cool wash in the machine or by hand, making it really easy to care for.
There’s a fixed hood which adds extra protection from showers, wind and cold. There’s also a zipped chest pocket and two zipped hand pockets. The hood edge, sleeve cuffs and dropped rear hem are all elasticated to trap warmth and improve the fit.
This luxuriously soft, ultra-lightweight jacket offers an impressive amount of thermal efficiency for its size, making it an ideal choice for taking on cold weather adventures.

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.
