Superbly comfortable technical trousers for active walkers. Great for travel too.
Our Summit technical trekking trousers are the perfect solution for active outdoor enthusiasts.
The inside of the fabric has a soft, brushed texture which is not only really comfortable but also provides added thermal performance. And a Durable Water Repellency™ treatment will shrug off a light rain shower and give you plenty of time to get out of the rain if the weather takes a sharp turn for the worse.
They're tailored so they don't billow when it gets blustery and have built-in stretch to provide unrestricted freedom of movement. They’re also durable and highly wind resistant, and have a discreet scuff panel on the trailing edge of the rear hem to prevent the heels of your walking boots from chaffing the material.
We've included belt loops on the waistband which has an integral stretch panel, a third pocket on the thigh (with a zip closure) and tri-ring for your keys or accessories.
The simple, understated design means they’re great for trekking, but will equally cross over into casual wear or form part of your versatile travel wardrobe.
: 94% polyester 6% elastane.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I have known the Rohan name for many years but never had occasion to go in a shop, let alone buy anything. Until last year!
We had been staying at a friend's cottage in Ambleside and walked into town to have a wander. We ended up in the Rohan shop and I saw the Summit trousers were on sale. The assistant was wearing a pair and singing their praises.
I tried a pair and they felt so comfortable that I had to buy them.
Well, I can honestly say I wore them all winter, for everything.
They really came into their own in a freezing Oslo in February where it was -2 or -3 every day, accompanied by freezing rain and snow. One evening we got caught in the rain and had a fairly long walk, at least an hour of walking in the rain. The Summit Trousers kept me warm and, more importantly, bone dry!
Superb trousers for winter or chilly days. The warm microfleecy lining keeps you toasty warm. The zipped pockets mean you will not lose anything, the DWP (Durable Water Repellency) works incredibly well.
As I sit in an air conditioned house in Portugal writing this I can honestly say I am looking forward to the colder weather coming so I can wear my Summits again. They really are that good. You can also wear them for formal occasions as they are just smart black trousers.
I have since bought Troggings which are also excellent, and Trailblazers that kept me protected from the heat and mosquitoes for 2 weeks on safari in South Africa.
I also have a Rohan merino wool sweater (wonderful!) and a Spark Vest - amazing insulatory properties.
I have turned into a Rohan nerd and I really don't care!
There is no better feeling than knowing you can 100% trust in the clothing you are spending your money on. Rohan inspire and consistently deliver on that trust.
Best winter trousers ever. Smart comfortable loads of secure neat pockets. Stretchy. Excellent whenever it’s not warm.
Love a Rohan, these are one of their finest. Trailblazers excellent too.
I have been wearing Rohan trousers when on hiking and safari trips for over 30 years and I have always been delighted with them.
The Summit Trousers however have been even better. I bought them prior to a weeks hiking in the Yorkshire Dales in late March and ended up wearing them every day, no matter what the weather was doing - we had sun, wind, snow and rain, and they were ideal. I kept warm on the cold days and didn't overheat on the warm days even during the more strenuous ascents. They dried very quickly, keeping their shape and allowed loads of movement. They were also smart enough for evening visits to the local pubs and restaurants.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
