The Full Story+

Our Dry Frontier Trousers might look like a regular pair of combat trousers, but behind the rugged exterior lies a pair of technical, high-wicking, quick drying performance trousers you can rely on in any adventure situation.

Beneath the durable water-repellent canvas outer, the Dry Frontier trousers carry a secret advantage; a fully waterproof, windproof and breathable Barricade™ lining that means you can turn a hill walk into a mountain trek, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be protected from the heaviest of heavy downpours.

Designed for regular walkers and committed trekkers, the Dry Frontier Trousers are packed with all the thoughtful design features you would come to expect in a pair of Rohan performance trousers. They've got elasticated waist panels and of course they're lightweight, windproof and machine washable. The fact they look great is simply an added bonus.

There are two secure welt covered leg pockets, two secure rear zipped pockets, plus two hand pockets. There is also an internal D-ring for keys or accessories.

If you're serious about your walking and happy to go out in any weather, consider pairing the Dry Frontiers with one of our waterproof shell jackets. So, when the Met Office issues one of its severe weather warnings, you’ll have an unbeatable ensemble that you can really depend on.

A Note on Pockets             

The two front pockets, two thigh pockets and rear pockets are not waterproof, avoid putting your valuable items in them in wet conditions.


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 may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

Fabric: 100% polyamide outer with 100% polyester waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology lining.

 
Lightweight - Weight: 525g
Lightweight - Weight: 525g

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: 6 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 6 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.

DRY LINER BARRICADE™

Barricade™ is a waterproof, windproof and breathable technology that has been tested and measured to achieve a minimum initial Hydrostatic Head measure of 20,000mm and an initial Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate measure of 20,000 g/m2/24 hrs. With our Dry liner construction method, the PU hydrophilic membrane is laminated to an inner liner. A loose outer made from a water-repellent synthetic fabric protects the membrane from the outside.

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.

Ideal for winter hill-walking

★★★★★

These trousers get worn a lot during the winter and any cold weather walking in the rain, and snow and wind. I haven’t found any other trousers with the same feel or comfort, durability and practicability. The cargo pockets, for example, are ideal for OS maps etc.

However, Rohan are likely to lose me as a customer because they are now clearly aiming at the smart city walker and tourist rather than the committed hill walker and they have very few, and I mean very few, Dry Frontier sizes available and haven’t had for months if not years.

Rohan’s gear is long-lasting but there are other manufacturers out there; once I find an alternative for the Dry Frontiers, goodbye Rohan.

Thank you for your feedback. Great to hear you like our Frontier trousers but really sorry you have not been able to order any more. However we are expecting full deliveries of all sizes in ready for Autumn/Winter 2021.

Review of Dry Frontier Trousers

★★★★★

Bought these mainly for winter golf as I hate over-trousers. Thought I would only wear them in wet weather but I wear them every time I go out now as they’re so light and comfortable and warm without being too hot. And with plenty of pockets for all your bits and pieces. But the best bit is that any mud just wipes off with a damp cloth, although the Velcro adjustment to the bottom of the legs mean they stay pretty clean anyway. Haven’t been tested in monsoon conditions but have kept me completely dry through some fairly heavy rain. Absolutely delighted.

Review of Men's Dry Frontier Trousers

★★★★★

After getting delivery of the trousers two weeks ago, I've been able to use them a couple of times in the hills and mountains of N Ireland and Donegal. Both hikes provided conditions of significant wind-driven rain and zero degree temperatures on the mountain peaks.

I was impressed by the comfort afforded by the Dry Frontiers in all hiking conditions. They lived up to expectations of keeping my legs fully dry in the rain and warm despite the relative lightness of the material overall.
