  • The Full Story

    A classic all-season shell, the Women’s Brecon Jacket provides complete protection on wet and windy days, perfect over a base layer and/or fleece for extra warmth. A great addition to your kit list whether your exploring coastal towns or scaling the peaks.

    So, whether you're taking on 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 water-repellent outer fabric with the internal breathable membrane, which is 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. The jacket has been 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.

    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 allowing ease of access when reaching for your OS map. When the wind picks up the three-point adjustment fixed hood allows you to find the perfect fit for additional protection around the face.

    Fabric: Outer: 100% Polyamide with Polyurethane Hydrophilic Membrane Lining 1: 100% Polyester Lining 2: 100% Polyamide

Lightweight - Weight 585 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 1500ml

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

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.

  • 2-Layer Barricade

    The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

    The waterproof fabric of the garment has two layers. The water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together. In addition, a loose lining protects the membrane from the inside.

  • 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.
