The Full Story+

We’ve been using Microgrid fabric since the turn of the century, approaching half a million sales since its launch. Now with added stretch, for greater freedom of movement.

Designed using advanced Microgrid fleece, a soft, brushed polyester fabric which uses a sophisticated ‘needle-out’ knitting technique to create a grid pattern on the surface of the fabric. These grids give the zip neck an attractive textured appearance whilst enabling the fabric to trap air - this is the key to its surprisingly high levels of warmth while still remaining incredibly lightweight and packable.

It’s also breathable and naturally high wicking, allowing the garment to manage moisture, keeping you cool and comfortable with all the same warmth as a much heavier, ordinary fleece.

This remarkable material maximises the properties of its stretch for supreme comfort, fit and freedom of movement without restriction. The sleeve cuffs also have thumbholes, which provide additional warmth, comfort and protection.  

It features a secure zipped chest pocket for convenient storage and security for valuables. It’s a simple design but with a high specification technical fabric and is perfect as a layering piece when used with a waterproof or windproof outer layer or perfect on its own as a fleece.

Fabric: 100% Polyester Microfleece with micro grid structure

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.

1 Secure Pocket

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.

So So

★★★☆☆

The fit is very good and so is the blue colour, but it is definitely only a mid layer because any breeze will blow through it.

Thank you for your review. This style has been designed as a mid-layer and the grid pattern enables the garment to trap warm air. It’s a great product to take anywhere with you for additional warmth. Pleased to hear the fit is good and you like the colour.

Mens Stretch Microgrid Fleece

★★★★★

Got a couple of the old style Microgrids which are still going strong. This a great improvement with plenty of flexibility, ideal for long days on the trail. Will undoubtedly take it on the Camino Portugues with me as and when things settle down.

As to the colours, I like the red and blue, the grey is very bland. Obviously, you cannot please all of the people.... but I would say that Rohan's colour palette tends to be a little boring, Hopefully this is a sign of Head Office being a little more adventurous.

Review of new stretch micro grid zip neck

★★★★★

Bought this top in red, great material with a light feel, the colour is great, so refreshing to have something bright rather than some of the drab colours that have sometimes been around

Dear John, it was great to see you have been pleased with the garment and thank you for taking the time to pass on your feedback.

Stretch microgrid :- jacket and also zip-neck

★★★★☆

I have worn the old-style jacket and zip tops for many years and found them very practical and comfortable. The new stretch versions are even better. I am 6'5" tall and needed xl in the old styles. With stretch size l fits me better

Thank you for your feedback. Great to hear you like the stretch in the fleece.

Poor colour choice

★★☆☆☆

What is happening with the choice of colours? The grey is ok but the red and blue look really cheap and tacky. You can't go wrong with Navy blue, green or brown/beige. A definate fail with the choice. I would only buy the grey, the red and blue will be in the sale because no one will buy them. Sorry.

Thank you for your feedback, our design team are always taking into consideration colour options to cater for as many people as possible. We do get lots of requests for brighter colours from our customers during the Spring/Summer months. Whilst offering brighter colours the grey is a great alternative. We will of course pass your feedback onto our design team who are currently working on our Autumn/Winter 2022 range.
