The Full Story+

The Frostpoint Vest is essential for winter due to its durable outer construction made with Insuloft wadding offering unrivalled warmth to weight right where you need it. This is the key to winter outdoor exploring such as hikes and treks.

60g of Insuloft wadding has been included on the front and back of the Frostpoint Vest to offer core warmth to the body. This soft wadding is ideal for wearing as a mid-layer underneath a shell or as a top layer over a long sleeve t shirt for added warmth and comfort. This is an essential piece for cold, windy and harsh climates, providing you with a first layer of warmth and protection.

The outer is made using soft Polyamide blended with Elastane to create a strong, lightweight and tough quality, which is great for exploring a variety of outside surroundings. The Elastane gives this garment flexibility, stretch and freedom of movement so you can easily move around for a more enjoyable hike with nothing holding you back.

Durable Water Repellency finish has also been incorporated onto the outer fabric of the Frostpoint Vest. This is an advanced treatment on the material which provides excellent protection against showers as well as proving a hard wearing quality. This is great for unexpected showers and drizzly weather conditions, especially when worn solely. However, only the areas the vest covers will be protected.

The Frostpoint Vest has two internal mesh stash pockets, one of which has an elastic synch closure and doubles up as a Packpocket - in order for you to store your vest in a compact bag of its own ready for whenever you need it on your travels.

Two zipped hand pockets with added Microfleece on either side of the jacket hold your belongings, maps or a place to warm up your hands. An internal chest pocket features on the inside of the garment to protect and hold your valuables.

Microfleece is also used to line the collar and chin guard for maximum comfort and protection against the wind, rain and cold.

The Frostpoint Vest is a key garment for warmth to the body on cold days. Perfect for layering for maximum comfort but also have the added benefit that it also serves well as a top layer over a top.

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: 8 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 8 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.

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.

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.

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.

Features at a Glance+
  • 86% Polyamide 14% Elastane
  • Polyamide and Elastane blend for the outer with Durable Water Repellency
  • Elastane adds flexibility, stretch and freedom of movement to the garment.

Excellent

★★★★★

My first vest so tried cheap supermarket version to see if I would use it much. Found it good but it did not have the quality of Rohan or the great secure pocket count. Rohan design always delivers what you really need for making life easier.

Very pleased, has been ideal for travelling by plane in April to Portugal. Enough pockets for documents and phone. Keeps the wind off.

Good length, personally I wouldn’t want a 2 way zip as others have suggested.

Disappointing zip flaw

★★★☆☆

The longer length body of this vest is great, but it doesn’t have a two way zip. Another review mentions that this can be a problem when sitting down. An even bigger issue for me is that you have to undo the vest completely when you need to get to the zip on your trousers…

I would have sent it back but I need the warmth and will put up with the hassle.

Thank you for your review. Generally speaking, our garments that feature a longer length style will have a two-way zip to allow the wearer to undo the garment from the bottom when necessary. However, based on a size medium, our Men's Frostpoint Vest is 73cm long and so we would not actually class this as a longer length style and this is why it does not feature a two-way zip. Nevertheless, our Design team are keen to receive all customer feedback and so we have passed your comments to them.

Really great item. Great fit, lovely and warm without being bulky. Great hand pockets at the right height to use, secure, internal chest pocket will fit a passport. Good length and the best piece of clothing I have from Rohan in a good while. Got the gift your gear discount and am ok with c. £100, it is likely a £80 item as a sweet spot. Will live in this for winter.

Frostpoint

★★★☆☆

Just got this and I’m not sure about it :

It appears to be much longer than others I have,

It has no double zip which other products have so when you sit down it can be released at the bottom.

It also appears to crease a fair bit when put it the inside pouch

also the inside pouch goes not have the Rohan logo on

All in all not as keen as others but it was £55 instead of £110 so will mull it over a bit longer

Thanks for you feedback. Due to the nature of the style, we do not offer a 2-way zip as often this is not required.

Any creasing experienced should be minimal and will drop out after wear.

Excelent. Fit good. Keps me warm

★★★★★

Perfect fit as an XL. Fits well under a heavy coat or jacket.

That bit warmer than my Rohan Icepoint Vest which is exactly why I bought it for this colder weather. Could be worn inside any Scottish Castle!

This also has 2 large poachers pockets -very useful.

I am sure it will wash as well as my Icepoint does.
