Our Hilltop Jacket is a bit of an unusual design these days.
It’s a top-specification, longer-length waterproof designed to offer something that everyone who’s out and about in wet British weather needs most – extra protection.
For those with short memories, it used to be different. Longer length waterproofs used to be commonplace. But now, the vagaries of outdoor fashion and the desire for the ‘alpine look’, have made them harder and harder to find.
Outdoor ‘fashion’, however, is not really top of the agenda for our customers – or us. Our customers tend to know their own mind. And we know you’re not easily swayed by the whims of fashion. Which is why our Hilltop Jacket has been such a great seller.
Totally waterproof, wind resistant and highly breathable, it’s made using our very own, bespoke 2-layer Barricade™ technology with our highly effective Durable Water Repellency™ finish.
The Hilltop Jacket features deep, zipped waterproof hand pockets, a zipped internal chest pocket and a big zipped map pocket. And, as you’d expect, it swallows up the Guild of Pocket Designers’ worst nightmare – the British Ordnance Survey map.
The hood offers complete protection in a proper downpour and cinches, without fuss, with our neat single pull adjustment system. It has a stiffened and wired peak to adjust to the direction of rain. And when not in use, it packs away into the collar for a smarter, everyday appearance – which is quite handy if you’re heading into town. Plus, the collar is lined with soft-touch micro fleece for extra comfort.
The cuffs are adjustable and the waist adjusts with a draw-cord hidden on the inside waist line – which means you can get the perfect fit and fine-tune the ventilation on the go. The Hilltop Jacket now also has an attractive checked lining.
100% polyamide with waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology and 100% polyester lining.
Pack Size: 2,300ml
Drying Time: 10 hours
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.
