The Full Story+

'Fit for purpose' is a phrase often heard in modern life and it's a concept we take very seriously at Rohan, our garments have to perform as good as they look – and we believe this is particularly important when it comes to waterproofs. Take our Cloudcover Overhead: this good-looking casual waterproof has enough style and practicality to wear in an urban environment, but shares its fabric technology with our premium hillwalking jackets.

We've made it with 2.5 layer Barricade™ technology with fully taped seams for uncompromising protection from the elements. It features two pockets on the hip and a horizontal chest pocket which doubles as a Packpocket™ for convenient stowage. You'll appreciate this if the sun comes out and you want to take it off and stuff it in a rucksack until you need it again.

There's a bonded peak on the fixed hood and a rear dropped, adjustable hem for added weather protection. The cuffs and face aperture are also adjustable to provide maximum wet weather performance. Undo the main front zip for a welcome bit of ventilation when it gets warmer.

We're proud to say we devote the same level of attention to detail when creating all our products and, regardless of whether they are aimed at the everyday wearer or the serious outdoor adventurer, our waterproofs always deliver dependable performance.


Our barricade™ waterproof technology 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.

2.5-layer Barricade™

A perfect fabric for an all-round leisure jacket or one for gentle low level walking.

The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A partial print is applied to the inside face of the fabric to protect the waterproof membrane.

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
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 x3Secure Pockets x3

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.

Our Technologies

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.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 340gLightweight - Weight: 340g

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: 750mlPackable - Pack Size: 750ml

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: 5 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 5 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.
