The Full Story+

The Stratus Jacket is packed full of benefits thanks to its innovative insulation. It’s incredibly warm, water-resistant, wind-resistant and machine washable, plus it looks and feels fantastic.

Like regular synthetic insulation, Sustans® fibres have a superior elasticity that achieves great  recovery, flexibility and warmth retention whilst also being fully machine washable and quick drying – a perk that can’t be achieved in most natural downs due to its high moisture absorption. But, unlike wadded synthetic insulation, it mimics the look and feel of real down by manufacturing the fibres into fill-like clusters rather than sheets of wadding, creating a softer finish with a better drape.

Sustans® fibres look very similar to synthetic fibres, but instead of using traditional oil to make the polyamide, it uses plant-based oil.

Using this wonderful insulation on the interior in conjunction with the tough polyamide on the exterior and a Durable Water Repellency™ finish, the Stratus Jacket is able to offer impressive levels of warmth and water-resistance, as well as easycare functionality and long-lasting durability.

With two secure mesh lined hand pockets and two internal stash pockets, there’s plenty of room for your necessities. Whilst one of the internal pockets also doubles as a Packpocket™ so you can compress it down small and chuck it in your bag.

The fixed hood has a single point of adjustability on the back and has stretch binding around the face. There’s also stretch binding around the cuffs and an adjustable hem – all of which work to improve the fit and trap warm air.

An excellent choice for outdoor enthusiasts, the Stratus Jacket with its innovative Sustans® insulation performs brilliantly on cold weather adventures whilst still offering great thermal efficiency in changeable, wetter conditions.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 12 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 12 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.

SUSTANS®

Sustans® is a highly insulating synthetic filling that mimics the look, feel and performance of natural down. Manufactured from a plant-based oil, it’s lightweight, highly compressible and offers a comfortable, soft feel. It’s fully machine washable and extremely quick drying – the perfect choice for cold-weather travel and outdoor use.

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.

4 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.

Packpocket™

Clever design is more often than not about what to take off rather than what to put on. It’s about giving one feature multiple functions. That’s why many of our garments feature a Packpocket™. This handy addition converts pockets into space-saving storage by compressing the garment into itself. You could use it as a travel pillow when it’s all packed down too.

Great jacket but with one flaw

★★★☆☆

Good lightweight jacket, waterproof, windproof, good fit, unfortunately as mentioned in a couple of other reviews it has a problem with the zip. It is quite small and fiddly and on a couple of occasions has undone itself.

For the first time ever on a Rohan product it had a complete zip failure, the small plastic tang that fits into the zip slider disintegrated leaving just a thin bit of plastic.

Posted it back to Rohan last week asking for a repair or replacement, be interesting to see what happens.

review of Stratus Jacket

★★★★★

I'm blown away by this Jacket!

its so warm and yet so light - I've only had it a few days and been it in temps ranging from -2C - +1C and today 5C with a stiff 22mph breeze and totally warm but no sweat problems whatsoever, it performed very well in a heavy rain shower and dried quickly.

Review of my carbon Stratus jacket.

★★★★★

I have had this Stratus jacket for about one month and have worn it in winter weather conditions, often cold and windy, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. I have only worn a merino tee under it so far, no need for anything warmer. I like the cut which is surprisingly generous without being baggy. The length of the jacket with the adjustable hem ensures that no unwanted drafts enter from below and the high neck and hood ensure none enter from above whilst also ensuring that no heat escapes. The length of the sleeves is brilliant, room to stretch (See my Mistral jacket review re sleeve lengths) the pockets are a very good size, as are the internal stash and pack pockets too. The adjustable cord on the hood is a very welcome addition as well. Most of the Sustans technology goes over my head, I will take Rohan's word for the many benefits it offers. Suffice to say this is one superbly comfortable light weight and warm jacket. Kept by the front door, it is the one I keep grabbing first, it has superseded my Downtown jacket, and I never thought I would say that! Another great jacket Rohan, well done.

Absolutely excellent

★★★★★

This jacket is so brilliantly designed. I chose Extra Large so in extreme conditions I could have an under layer. The zip is absolutely robust but necessarily thin so as to ensure full insulation. With the hood my head is well protected as it overhangs my face and leaves my specs. well protected. My Extra Large Helix Jacket fits well on top so where there's no watering holes open due to ,Covid-19 these two would ensure complete survival without an inner layer, even in the most extreme conditions!. In my opinion it's better than the men's DownTown Jacket which don't have a hood.

A top rate insulated jacket.

I own many of these types of jacket and this one is of a very high standard. It’s warm, performs when wet and is very light. I love it.

My review of the Stratus Jacket

★★★★☆

Pleased with my purchase of the Stratus jacket the fit is good the insulation is the best i have in any coat/jacket my only disappointment as has been stated in other reviews is the ZIP it certainly needs to be more substantial, at least double the size, i have larger zips on my summer fleeces!!

Love my Stratus jacket, BUT....

★★★★☆

Had my jacket for about 5 months now. I have a pukka down jacket for use on the hill, but wanted something lighter for everyday use about town. I really like the fit and cut of the jacket, and layered underneath I'm nice and toasty. It could really have done with an internal security pocket though. The thing I really have a problem with is the zip. This is totally not suitable for an outdoor garment. The zip is more suited to a fleece or cardigan than an outdoor jacket. It needs a more substantial zip. In the 5 months I've had the jacket the zip has split apart (from bottom to top) on at least three occasions. This really isn't good enough. If it happens once more I shall be contacting Rohan customer services. I maybe should have done that already.

Sorry to hear that you have been disappointed. A member of our Customer Services Team will be in touch with you shortly.

As previous review bought larger size for layering . Could have done with napoleon pocket for security, but my inner layer shirt has one taa dah . Really pleased with the fit and insulation. Nice colour + it packs away small enough so I can stash in my motorcycle pannier when I go touring ( I’m a winter and summer biker ) good ,well priced jacket

Men's Stratus jacket review.

★★★★☆

I liked the look of this jacket when I first saw it in the catalogue and when it appeared in the sale of was a no brainer to get one. I chose size XL and it leaves a bit of room for layering. The cut is not "athletic" thank you Rohan, we do not all go to the gym. Construction and quality are first rate. It is light enough to scrunch into your sack and there are no flashy logos either, just a discrete Rohan on the chest. First test was a trip to the shops, hardly a severe environment but it was dry and minus one Celcius. I just wore the jacket over a t shirt and it was easily warm enough, too warm in the supermarket actually, the insulation really works well.

A chest pocket would have been nice but the internal dump pockets are adequate, the hip pockets are mesh lined for ventilation.

The hood looks too simple at first glance, but the combination of the single rear adjuster cord and the elastic binding around the face works well, vision is not restricted.

Overall I am very impressed with the Stratus jacket. Obviously it needs a more vigorous test out in the hills but it's more than useful as a winter travel jacket.
