A warm fleece jacket with a full length zip opening.
Forty years ago the term 'technical fleece' didn't even feature in the lexicon of outdoor clothing. Back then we relied on woolly jumpers for our main insulating layer - fine and dandy for keeping warm but they were bulky and heavy. Not only that they'd take ages to dry if they got damp and you'd smell like a wet collie in the process.
Nowadays a high performance fleece is deemed essential to a layered clothing system and most hillwalkers wouldn't leave home without one. Our Ambient Jacket combines all the desirable features you would want from this fundamental piece of your outdoor wardrobe. It's light, breathable, durable and very warm. We've built in some added stretch to offer unimpeded freedom of movement, essential for active walkers who prefer to stride rather than stroll.
The super-soft, brushed back fabric is designed to trap warm air and the soft microfleece lining on the inner collar and chinguard is reassuringly comfortable on the skin. The high quality zip on the front will help you quickly cool down should the going get tough and two front pockets are handy to keep your hands warm if the temperature drops a few degrees.
Fabric: 93% polyester, 7% elastane.
Pack Size: 1,750ml
Drying Time: 9 hours
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
