Our Atlas Jacket is a versatile waterproof – a technical walking jacket made to keep you warm and dry whether you're on a walking adventure or the morning commute.Read more…
We’ve given the Atlas Jacket a style update for the new season and with its attractive checked lining it makes a stylish companion when partnered with one of our technical fleeces. It will keep you warm, dry and looking good whether you're out on a walking adventure or simply dropping the kids off before starting your morning commute. The Atlas Jacket is cut slightly longer and can be used as a top coat and worn over business clothes if you're expecting some weather.
The fabric takes advantage of our advanced Barricade™ membrane technology in a 2-layer construction with a soft, polyester face fabric and a comfortable mesh lining. The outer fabric has been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish to ensure that it doesn’t ‘wet out’ and become heavy or impair the breathability. This makes it 100% waterproof and highly breathable – even in challenging, humid conditions.
But it’s the attention to detail which make the Atlas stand out from its contemporaries: it has a highly-protective hood which adjusts with our single-pull toggle system and rolls away neatly into the collar of the jacket when it’s not required. The full-length front zip is protected by a double storm-flap and features a soft, comfortable throat protector. It also has an added micro-fibre panel for extra comfort inside the collar. The internal zipped chest pocket is large enough to take an OS map, and it also doubles as a Packpocket™ to stow the jacket away when not in use.
The two large hand pockets are zipped and there’s also a handy, elasticated internal stuff pocket for easy access to gloves or other items. The hem, waist and cuffs are fully adjustable allowing you to fine-tune the fit to provide ventilation or alternatively to batten down the hatches if the wind picks up.
100% polyester with waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology and 100% polyester lining.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

A great shell jacket with longer hem than most. Covers longer fleeces on the hill and suit jackets in raining town comutes.
Good all-rounder, just a little heavy for warmer wet summer days.
Showing no signs of wear yet after a couple of years use.
