The Full Story+

Boot-cut. Rohan-style. When the weather takes a sudden turn for the worst, the Men's Ventus Overtrousers offer quick, effective protection. The two-way, three-quarter length Aquaguard zips allow you to pull them on over your boots easily, keeping your clothes underneath dry.

The Ventus Overtrousers are easy to pull on, offering a quick change when the weather turns whilst offering the added stretch to help provide more freedom of movement when walking. In addition, the Ventus features the Cohaesive™ waist adjustment with added elastication for comfort.

The Ventus Overtrousers comes with our renowned 3-Layer Barricade Standard, and it stops rain from getting in and is windproof whilst remaining fully breathable. The waterproof outer and breathable inner membrane and fully sealed seam ensure there is no leakage.

To be labelled waterproof and given the Barricade Standard, it needs to have a Hydrostatic Head measure of 20,000mm—the level of water a product can withstand, the benchmark is 1,500mm.

As we know, when it's wet outside, waterproofing is not something you want to compromise on, allowing you to do what you love for longer. So, the Ventus Overtrouser is the best of both worlds—waterproof and extremely breathable.

We have added the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) finish which makes light work of heavy or prolonged downpours. Instead of soaking into the material, water droplets bead up and run off the trousers, keeping the rest of your layers dry, providing additional protection against the elements.

When you no longer need that extra layer of protection, shake off the water and pack these lightweight trousers down, ready for when the weather turns again.

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.

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.

My review of men’s over trousers

★☆☆☆☆

My husband is a slim size 30 waist but could not get the small over his knees. The medium were enormous. Our previous pair of over ten years had a front zip and button at the waist. So easy to get on but these are difficult. In the end he bought a pair of ladies medium over trousers which did fit. Why change a good design for a pull waistband that is far inferior.

Thank you for your feedback. There will be a difference in the cut and fit of the men’s and women’s style. The men’s tend to be a straighter cut but should fit over the knees. The adjustment is designed to lay flat against the body giving the garment a more streamlined appearance. The use of this on the waistband should allow the trousers to be taken off with ease. To use this adjuster, the highlighted area should be pressed and held while the cord is pulled, releasing this will lock the waist in place. It would need to be pressed again to release. We are pleased to advise we have received good feedback regarding this new addition.

Ventus Overtrousers

★★☆☆☆

In spite of paying extra to get them delivered early the courier did not do so for nearly a week, however that does not reflect on the trousers themselves, but I was disappointed when trying them on to find that they were too long and there are no choices for leg length. The quality is good but the waist band also leaves a lot to be desired. Cant seem to get it tight enough to be not slipping down too easily.

Thank you for your review. We are limited with the number of units we can manufacture in a season however, we do analyse our rate of sales to see if we can invest in more sizes as we would ideally like to be able to do. If you are finding the waistband to be on the looser side, you may wish to try the next size down. Customer Service would be delighted to provide you with specific measurements should you wish to contact them.
