The Full Story+

The Men’s Brecon Jacket is a classic all season shell that provides complete protection from the elements and is perfect for layering over a base layer and/or fleece for extra warmth, worn with large protective gloves. Great for when you're exploring the hills or further afield, making it a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

The hem and cuffs provide you with the flexibility to fine-tune the fit to your preference so that you can continue your activities as comfortable as possible.  Large functional pockets are designed to be worn with a rucksack and won't interfere when you're reaching for your OS map.

So, whether you're taking on the mountains or slower-paced walks, the weather plays a big part in our outdoor adventures. This is why the Brecon Jacket comes with our renowned Barricade Standard, which combines our latest fabric technology for being waterproof, windproof and breathable. Our innovative 2-Layer Barricade Standard uses technology to bond the outer fabric with the internal breathable membrane, then lined with taffeta and mesh for your added comfort. 

For our garments to be classed as reaching the Barricade Standard the fabric must achieve a minimum Hydrostatic Head of 20,000mm. Hydrostatic Head is a fabric measurement way of measuring how waterproof a garment is. The fabric is held tightly in place and water is then exerted at a high pressure until the fabric starts to bead with water. The higher the count the more waterproof the garment is.

The jacket is treated with a DWR finish which boosts the fabric's water repellency. In addition, it forces water droplets to bead up and run off the outside of the fabric, maintaining its effectiveness.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 6 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 6 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.

4 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.

2-LAYER BARRICADE™

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 2-layer construction method, a water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together. A loose lining protects the membrane from the inside.

Lightweight Waterproof with Cavernous Pockets

★★★★★

Needing a new waterproof, I called at my local Rohan store intending to buy the Ventus jacket. As it happened, my size and preferred colour was out of stock. I tried a larger size to get an idea of how it looked, then the Brecon jacket for size.

The sizing of the latter was perfect and I immediately knew it was going to fit the bill - not only did it benefit from Rohan's 'Barricade' technology, but it also had four large pockets. The hand pockets are so capacious that they also accommodate one's forearms. There are two other pockets, useful for storing a mobile phone, and in my case, a football programme. Not only that - it was cheaper than the Ventus.

An added advantage of this lightweight waterproof is that it is an effective outer layer when teamed with, for example, a microgrid fleece of the Radiant Merino jacket.

I have a substantial wardrobe of Rohan products and I already know that the Brecon jacket is going to be amongst my all-time favourites.

poor pocket design

★★☆☆☆

Overall a good jacket. However the flaps protecting the hand pockets are inadequate. They do not cover the zips unless held in place by a rucksack belt. Otherwise the zips are exposed to the elements. I would have given the jacket 5 stars if not for this.

I would not recommend this jacket. The Ridge jacket does not have this problem.

Thank you for your review. Our Brecon Jacket has been wear tested to make sure the garment performs perfectly for the intended end use and the pockets have been placed for easy access. Our Design team have confirmed that the zips are covered by the flaps and when the jacket is worn in wet weather, the rain will bead up and roll off the jacket. This has been a really popular style in our range however, you are welcome to contact Customer Service if you would like to discuss alternative styles.

What weird hood

★★★☆☆

This jacket is typical Rohan quality and I'm generally pleased with it - but beware the badly designed hood. Rohan wired hoods have been the best I've ever used on any waterproof until this jacket - for some strange reason instead of the peak having wire on the front the wire is at the back of the peak so the wire is actually on your forehead which makes the peak come down onto your forehead and rain runs off it onto your face. A great jacket ruined by a badly designed hood - not like Rohan at all.

Thank you for your review. Delighted to hear you have been pleased with this style. The wire has been positioned so the rain can channel off down the side of the face. You may wish to use the two point hood adjustments to help position the hood more suitably for yourself. This is a new style in our range which is proving to be really popular with our customers so we hope you will enjoy wearing your Brecon Jacket.
