This durable and rugged jacket offers plenty of protection from the elements and is ideal for winter hill walks but equally wouldn’t look out of place around town with its stylish parka design.Read more…
Utilising 2-layer Barricade™ technology and 100g of Insuloft™ wadding, the Outpost Jacket offers ample warmth and total waterproof protection from the elements.
The 2-layer Barricade™ system with its polyester exterior and Durable Water Repellency™ finish offers a soft hand feel, fantastic durability and complete protection from the wind and rain. Whilst the use of our synthetic Insuloft™ wadding creates ample warmth with even heat distribution that still performs well in wet conditions.
The hood is a removable and adjustable 3 panel design that also has an insulating channel around the face for extra warmth. The twin storm flaps covering the front zip improve wind and rain protection, and the microfleece lined pockets keep hands toasty. The longer length, the internal waist adjuster and ‘hook and loop’ cuff adjustment fine tunes the fit and offers extra protection, trapping the warmth in.
There are two drop in hand pockets, one secure zipped chest pockets and two internal zipped pockets – plenty of space for all your essentials and valuables.
The use of Insuloft™ versus natural insulation means it’s really easy to care for: wash it in the machine or by hand and leave to dry overnight and it will be ready to go again the next day.
The classic parka style of this insulated and waterproof coat makes it a smart choice that works exceptionally well for walking in bitter and wet conditions, but would work excellently sightseeing somewhere like Reykjavik or Copenhagen in winter.
Durable, versatile and with complete elemental protection, the Outpost Jacket is a great choice to take you from the hillside to the roadside in cold changeable conditions.
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.
A sound choice for complete waterproof protection and good breathability for active outdoor use - but where the very lowest weight and smallest pack size is not critical. Polyamide options offer durability and abrasion resistance.
The Durable Water Repellency™ treated, water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A loose lining protects the membrane and wicks away moisture.
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.

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.
