  • The Full Story

    Lightweight and breathable, our Men’s Helios Vest is the perfect addition to your activewear wardrobe. Packing into its own Packpocket, this vest will take up hardly any space in your cupboard between trips, or in your backpack as you explore the hills, ready to be thrown on as soon as the temperature starts to drop.

    Tough, ripstop outer fabric has been treated with our Durable Water Repellency finish, protecting you from any unexpected showers by making raindrops bead up and roll away before they can soak into your clothes. And if it’s really pouring, the Helios Vest doubles as a great mid-layer to keep your core warm under a waterproof shell, so you can enjoy your local walking trails without giving the winter weather a second thought.

    Designed with 100% recycled polyester Insuloft insulation, this high-performance warm layer will shield you from the cold whether you’re heading into the early morning chill for a dog walk, or climbing into colder temperatures at the top of the peaks. Insulation is body-mapped in key areas for increased performance; on the chest and rear panels a membrane is bonded to the insulation to draw moisture away from you, ensuring all-day comfort on your most active climbs.

    Thoughtful features like a brushed tricot lining add warmth to the two zipped hand pockets, and extra comfort to the back of your neck, while the elasticated armholes ensure total freedom of movement and an adjustable hem means you can easily customise the fit of your Helios Vest while you’re on the move.

    With three zipped security pockets, one of which doubles as a Packpocket, you know that the essentials you need while you’re out on the trails are safe and close at hand. Combining practical features with cold-weather protection, this vest has been designed to move with you as you adventure in the great outdoors.

Lightweight - Weight 285 Grams

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 1000ml

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 9 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.

  • 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.

  • Packpocket

    Clever design is more often than not about what to take off rather than what to put on. It’s about giving one feature multiple functions. That’s why many of our garments feature a Packpocket. This handy addition converts pockets into space-saving storage by compressing the garment into itself. You could use it as a travel pillow when it’s all packed down too.

  • Insuloft

    Insuloft is an advanced synthetic wadding that offers a better warmth-to-weight ratio than polyester fleece and better performance when wet than conventional down. It’s durable, compressible, lightweight, easy to wash and fast drying – it’s the perfect choice for cold-weather protection.

  • Secure Pockets

    Losing possessions when you’re close to home is frustrating, but losing your car keys, passport, phone or wallet while you’re travelling can really spoil your adventure. That’s why we put lots of thought into developing safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.
