The ultimate winter coat for commuting or travel. This full length winter coat offers uncompromising protection from the worst winter weather.
It's rare to find city style and practicality combined with full wet weather protection and outstanding cold weather performance but with our new Bergen Jacket that's exactly what we've done. Created specially for the urban environment it's the ultimate high performance winter coat designed for city use.
We've used a Sustans® filling to help keep the winter out and the warmth in. It mimics the aesthetics and feel of down and has a very high heat retention but is also fully machine washable and quick drying.
The Bergen Jacket features woven tunnels to retain the insulation rather than stitched channels – this is one of those typically subtle Rohan design details which could easily be overlooked but is a key element in reducing cold spots through fibre migration.
On the outside we've used our tried and tested two layer Barricade fabric with a Durable Water Repellency™ finish. The coat is cut with a longer length for serious protection from the elements and is equipped with an adjustable hood and a wired peak plus a double storm flap with a snap and zip closure. For added comfort we've included a water repellent stretchy inner cuff and a micro fleece hidden inner collar. Although the Bergen coat is part of our city travel range you'll find it works just as well when the pavement stops and the trails begin.
Our barricade™ waterproof technology achieves an initial Hydrostatic Head (waterproofness rating) of 20,000 and a Moisture Vapour Transmission rating for breathability of 20,000 g/m2/24h - a very balanced position.
A further Durable Water Repellency™ finish boosts water repellency of the fabric surface and maintains 80% of its effectiveness after twenty washes.
A sound choice for complete waterproof protection and good breathability for active outdoor use - but where the very lowest weight and smallest pack size is not critical. Polyamide options offer durability and abrasion resistance.
The Durable Water Repellency™ treated, water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A loose lining protects the membrane and wicks away moisture.

Washing InstructionsCaring for your Rohan Barricade™ waterproof will improve its performance and longevity. Simply machine wash your item at 30C with a gentle non-biological, liquid detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric conditioners, dryer sheets, stain removers or bleaching agents as these can impair the fabric performance. Garments may be drip dried. To rejuvenate the finish tumble dry your waterproof on the coolest setting, ensuring it is fully dry to complete the process.
Your Barricade™ waterproof has a Durable Water Repellency finish on the surface of the fabric. Over time, with wear and exposure to the environment, this can degrade, stopping water beading up on the surface of the jacket. Cleaning your waterproof will help maintain the finish. If necessary a re-proofing product, such as Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

Wet clothing transmits body heat nearly twenty-five times faster than dry. All clothing with this symbol is guaranteed to be totally waterproof. And highly breathable membrane technology means that you won’t get wet from inside either.
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated either High (20+) or Total (40+).
We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
Conventional waterproof fabrics cannot adapt to the changing weather outside and the changing micro-climate inside. Barricade™ is different, it is dynamic and responds to your body temperature and the humidity of the surrounding environment. The sweatier and steamier things get inside, the better the membrane works and the more vapour escapes.
Our durable water resistant finish, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the jacket, is designed to remain at 80% efficiency – even after 20 washes.
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.
