The Full Story +

When you’re far from camp, exposed and battling against the rain and wind, you’ll be glad you packed our Elite Overtrousers. Team it with our Elite Jacket, and you’ve got one of the very lightest technical waterproof suits in the world.

They’re made from a super-light rip stop polyamide that has been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish to help bead up water on the surface. Add to that our Barricade™ membrane technology, fully taped seams, and a whisper thin scrim lining, you’ve got something that’s altogether 100% waterproof, highly wind resistant and phenomenally breathable.

They feature full length leg zips for an easy on-and-off, to help you avoid that one-legged jig that usually accompanies other overtrousers, trying to guide them over your muddy boots.

The adjustable hem and waist help to fine tune the fit and keep out any draughts. The external zipped pocket helps to protect your valuables, and the Packpocket™ means they take up very little space in your bag.

 

BarricadeBarricade™

Our Barricade™ waterproof fabric achieves an initial Hydrostatic Head (waterproofness rating) of 20,000 and a Moisture Vapour Transmission rating for breathability of 20,000 g/m2/24h - a very balanced position.

A further Durable Water Repellency™ finish boosts water repellency of the fabric surface and maintains 80% of its effectiveness after twenty washes.

3-layer Barricade™

An investment in a long-term high performing jacket for intense activity offering the lightest weight and the smallest pack size.

The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together with a lightweight wicking scrim - the three layers are sandwiched together.

Washing Instructions
Caring for your Rohan Barricade™ waterproof will improve its performance and longevity. Simply machine wash your item at 30C with a gentle non-biological, liquid detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric conditioners, dryer sheets, stain removers or bleaching agents as these can impair the fabric performance. Garments may be drip dried. To rejuvenate the finish tumble dry your waterproof on the coolest setting, ensuring it is fully dry to complete the process.

Your Barricade™ waterproof has a Durable Water Repellency finish on the surface of the fabric. Over time, with wear and exposure to the environment, this can degrade, stopping water beading up on the surface of the jacket. Cleaning your waterproof will help maintain the finish. If necessary a re-proofing product, such as Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

Elemental Protection
Wind - Highly Wind ResistantWind - Highly Wind Resistant

Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are Highly Wind Resistant.

Rain - Totally WaterproofRain - Totally Waterproof

Wet clothing transmits body heat nearly twenty-five times faster than dry. All clothing with this symbol is guaranteed to be totally waterproof. And highly breathable membrane technology means that you won’t get wet from inside either.

Functional Features
Secure Pockets x1Secure Pockets x1

Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.

PackpocketPackpocket

Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.

Minimum Layer ConstructionMinimum Layer Construction

By painstakingly stripping out unnecessary fabric and avoiding the common practice of double fabric panels we gain many advantages. The clothing is lighter and less bulky as well as quicker drying and more breathable. And because our fabrics are super tough, functionality can be improved by stripping away anything that doesn’t really need to be there.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 290gLightweight - Weight: 290g

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: 700mlPackable - Pack Size: 700ml

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 hoursFast 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.

Our Technologies
BarricadeBarricade

Conventional waterproof fabrics cannot adapt to the changing weather outside and the changing micro-climate inside. Barricade™ is different, it is dynamic and responds to your body temperature and the humidity of the surrounding environment. The sweatier and steamier things get inside, the better the membrane works and the more vapour escapes.

Durable Water RepellencyDurable Water Repellency

Our durable water resistant finish, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the jacket, is designed to remain at 80% efficiency – even after 20 washes.
