The Full Story+

Named after the whale watching capital of Iceland, the Húsavík Jacket is the definitive choice of cold weather. Made with Thindown® insulation and with our 3-layer Barricade™ technology, it’s totally wind and waterproof on the outside whilst keeping you incredibly warm on the inside.

Featuring all the style of a smart city parka but with the warmth of a fully insulated coat, the Húsavík Jacket hasn’t got a baffle in sight. The genius of Thindown® technology means you can get all the insulating power of natural down but in a thin wadded sheet. This reduces bulk and size for a superior warmth-to-weight ratio, as well providing an even distribution of warmth across the body, unlike baffles which can often lead to cold spots and fibre migration.

The reduced weight and bulk means it’s far more packable than your traditional insulated down coat, so it’s perfect for travel, and unlike most down jackets it’s machine washable, making it much easier to care for. 

The tough, durable polyamide 3-layer Barricade™ system means as well as being totally warm, you’re also protected from the wind and rain, this is aided by the use of the Durable Water Repellency™ finish, fully taped seams, storm cuffs and YKK Aquaguard™ zips, minimising the amount of water ingress.

The Húsavík Jacket comes with an adjustable hood with a bonded peak. It also comes with two zipped chest pockets, an internal zipped security pocket for valuables, two drop in pockets with flap and snap closure, and two zipped side pockets that are lined with microfleece to keep your hands toasty.

Make the Húsavík Jacket your go to winter coat this season for unrivalled protection from the elements. This stylish parka is the ultimate choice for your next cold-weather travel adventure.

Lightweight - Weight: 765g
Lightweight - Weight: 765g

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: 2750ml

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: 12 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 12 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.

3-LAYER BARRICADE™ Waterproof

with Durable Water Repellency™

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 3-layer construction method, the water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together with a lightweight, wicking scrim.

THINDOWN

Extremely packable with a very high warmth-to-weight ratio, Thindown is an innovative insulation made from natural down which has been made into thin ‘sheets’ bordered with a superfine scrim. This construction eliminates the need for baffles, reducing down migration and creating a more even distribution of insulation without cold spots. Machine washable.

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.

6 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.

Fills an important niche

★★★★★

I bought this for a specific niche; travelling for business, in a suit, in winter. It is long enough, smart enough, warm enough, waterproof enough and has sufficient pockets to fulfill my exhaustive list of requirements.I have been looking for something for some time and was delighted to find this despite the price. Now it has been on a couple of trips to Denmark and Germany to test it out. Its not so bulky that you can't jam it in on top of your carry on bag on the plane however looks none the worse for it. It kept me warm standing in German Christmas markets (although the Glühwein likely helped) so I actually have no complaints about this product at all. I can see it becoming the winter go to jacket as I think it will handle anything I care to throw at it. If its like the other Rohan gear I have it is destined to become a perennial favourite.

Not quite up to expectations

★★☆☆☆

I bought two, one for me and one for my wife. The jackets look great and are beautifully finished. However wearing them in Edinburgh in fairly cold windy weather they did not live up to the claimed warmth. We find they need either several thermal layers or a puffer type waistcoat underneath to be comfortable. I doubt if they would do well in severe weather.

Sorry but it simply failed to live to expectations

★☆☆☆☆

I was keen to get a down jacket that was also waterproof and good looking. I only used it on one day and didn't find it to be that warm, and that was in Manchester, UK. I had expected that the down would mean I could wear the jacket without any fleece underneath but that wasn't the case. It actually compared and felt equal to my Berghaus Walking jacket. The write up talks of keeping you incredibly warm, even in the most northern reaches of Iceland. Afraid I have to disagree, you will need to significantly layer up for that.

Some other points, I didn't like that there were no zips on the two main side pockets (but oddly there were zips on the hand warmer pockets). The hood was rather short and so in a wind you would get much less protection for your forehead.

It does however look quite smart, but its performance felt more like a water proof shell with a bit of warmth rather than a traditional down jacket in my opinion, it simply wasn't warm enough. So I had to return it back to Rohan. I'm normally never disappointed with Rohan gear, so guess this was a first.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We were sorry to learn that you were disappointed with this product but happy to see that this has now been resolved for you.

My Husavic Jacket

★★★★★

This has quickly become my favourite Rohan product. I bought it for when the weather is really bad but I’ve found myself wearing it all the time. It’s lightweight enough to wear as an everyday jacket but warm and dry in extreme conditions. The two front pockets are great. A really good size to carry loads of stuff and big enough for a map. The zipped had warmers pockets are also great so no need for gloves. Additional security pockets for valuables, what more do you need. Overall, a very impressive lightweight coat that also does the job in the rain and cold.

It might be expensive but worth every penny.
