The Full Story+

Today’s Olfio Top still uses high-performing Airlight™ fabric but with the addition of modern insulation and thoughtful design features, it offers maximum protection for cold-weather walking, travel and everyday wear.

The original Olfio Top was designed as a radical alternative to the Arran sweater, which although water resistant and warm, was incredibly itchy and uncomfortable; it also couldn’t be dyed in the bold colours that became iconic in the 80’s. By using innovative Airlight™ fabric Rohan were able to do what others had yet to achieve – create a jumper with bold designs, that was water resistant, breathable, soft-to-the-touch and most importantly comfortable.

With many of the same benefits but with an added Durable Water Repellency™ finish, today’s Airlight™ is still an incredibly effective choice of fabric. Impressive water and wind resistance, soft to touch, comfortable to wear and with added durability, it’s the perfect choice for travel and everyday wear.

Using the latest in insulation technology, Insuloft™, this overhead offers impressive thermal efficiency without adding bulk. Coming in at just 450g, the Olfio Top has an incredible warmth to weight ratio making it ideal to pack for your next winter escape.

With added thoughtful design features such as an adjustable hem and storm cuffs for improved fit and warmth, a high collar for wind protection, side zip opening and synthetic liner for easy on and off, and two secure zipped hand pockets for essentials, the Olfio Top is a fantastic modern day choice.

Utilising the iconic styling of the past with the latest fabrics and technologies, the Olfio Top is still a timeless classic that’s full of modern day functionality for hard-working protection in cold-weather climates.

Fabric: Airlight™ exterior, Insuloft™ wadding, 100% polyester lining

 
Lightweight - Weight: 450g
Lightweight - Weight: 450g

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: 1250ml
Packable - Pack Size: 1250ml

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: 4 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 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.

Airlight

Originally introduced in 1983, Airlight™ is the fabric that revolutionized travel clothing: it’s a classic, perfectly-balanced fusion of cotton and polyester. Lightweight, hardwearing, wind resistant, breathable and compressible, it’s easy to wash, very quick drying and feels wonderfully cool and comfortable next to the skin. 

INSULOFT™

Insuloft™ is an advanced synthetic wadding that offers a better warmth-to-weight ratio than polyester fleece and better performance when wet than conventional down. It’s durable, compressible, lightweight, easy to wash and fast drying – it’s the perfect choice for cold-weather protection.

DURABLE WATER REPELLENCY™

Our DWR ™ finish is an advanced treatment which dramatically increases the water repellency of our fabrics. On its own, it offers a useful level of shower resistance; used in conjunction with our Barricade™ technology, it reduces the tendency of the face fabric to wet out and maximizes breathability.

2 Secure Pockets

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.

Review op the old Olfio

★★★★★

Looking forward to getting this. I had (and still have) the original Olfio that has been a very reliable and functional travel companion for 30+ years. Skiing in the alps, hiking and climbing in Indonesia, Borneo, Sri Lanka and cycling in the Himalaya”s, New Zealand and Australia. I hope the new one is as functional as the original with its large front pocket and connected side pockets. The perfect light and warm windbreaker.

Men’s Olfio top

★★★★★

The original was great but this new one Is better. I have had it 2 months and found it comfortable and easy to put on and off with side zip which also provides extra ventilation. It’s warm and wind proof and once outside it proved to be all I needed over a shirt. Modern colour combo is striking.

The return of an old friend

★★★★★

I remember the old Olfios, which were pretty good for their time, but this is even better. Updated and I think better design, lighter weight (?) and smaller pack size (?). Have just tried it out today - fantastic! Will be worn as much as the old ones were!

The Olfio

★★★★★

This I have to buy. I had the original Olfio way back in time. Much more practical than a jumper and it does not itch:
