Rugged, protective and unbelievably comfortable, our Trailblazers are the ultimate trousers for the trail walker.
Before we get into the engineering of these trousers, it’s worth mentioning their comfort: lightweight and with a stretch built in, the Trailblazers also feature articulation darts to give that extra-flexible fit and great freedom of movement.
They boast two hand pockets, two zipped thigh pockets, and two zipped rear pocket for extensive storage options, and a fully removable belt.
And if you thought they were a superb all-rounder before, just wait until you test their new Insect Shield® treatment in more tropical climates. Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection – It helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. And it’s so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it’ll retain its effectiveness through the life of the product. Add Sun Protection UPF 40+* and our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish, and you’ve got the perfect hot weather trouser.
The result: trousers that’ll stand up to any challenge. An afternoon amble through the North Yorkshire Moors or a five day trek on the Camino de Santiago. The Trailblazer fabrics advanced fusion of tough polyamide and stretchy elastane offers an unbeatable combination of freedom of movement and great long-term durability.
*A Note on Sun ProtectionAll Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.
*A Note on Insect Shield®Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each Insect Shield® - labelled garment is treated with Permethrin – an invisible, odourless and durable ingredient which protects against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the expected life of the product – well beyond the limits of most fabric finishes.

Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Comfort strategies are limited. We choose the right weight of fabrics, employ Airflow™ weaves and use Dynamic Moisture Control™ technology.
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
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.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.
This permethrin-based treatment is invisible, odourless and impairs the ability of insects including mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers and midges to land, and so reduces bites. It’s extremely durable too – and is designed to last for the lifetime of the product.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
