The Full Story+

One of the toughest tasks we've given to our designers in recent times was to develop a more ‘active’ version of our classic Bags trousers.

We asked them to create a pair of trousers which offered greater freedom of movement for adventurous walkers and trekkers.

The brief was to stay true to the original Bags design concept and create protective, packable, mountain expedition legwear retaining all the key signature features such as the pocket layout, an accessory D-ring and the reinforced knee and seat panels for durability.

We've used a tried and tested material from our trouser range - a super-tough technical fibre with elastane and Dynamic Moisture Control - and used it to make our new Stretch Bags.

They’re still highly wind resistant, high wicking, quick drying and offer a UPF 40+ sun protection* but the stretch now allows a greater freedom of movement enabling them to handle just about any activity you can throw at them.

*A Note on Sun Protection

All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

Fabric: 94% Polyamide, 6% Elastane

 
Lightweight - Weight: 325g
Lightweight - Weight: 325g

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: 800ml
Packable - Pack Size: 800ml

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: 5 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 5 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.

Dynamic Moisture Control™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Sun Protection UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

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.

A worthy replacement for my old bags

★★★★★

I was sceptical about these stretch bags but I needn't have been. They are so comfortable to wear and are still reasonably cool even in hot weather. I haven't had them long enough to know how the stretchiness will last but they have certainly washed well so far. I like them so much I have bought two other pairs to replace other Rohan trousers that are now too big for me.

Women's Trousers (Bags).

★★★★☆

Ah… such a pity, my Rohan’s delivered today are just too tight. I usually wear a size 10, long length. These, as usual, are a perfect length, but too tight in the crotch area, and very tight around the waist.

My light grey size 10’s are a perfect fit.

So sadly these will be returned for a size 12, (hopefully back in stock by now🤞).

The Ash brown colour is excellent, and quite a happy surprise - they would team up with many different coloured tops.

Sad to have to return them, but bags will always be my favourite trousers.

A point to note;

(For anyone “straight up and down” like me), I’m slim on the hips, but a little chubby at the waist. A little more elasticity at the waist may have helped.

Hoping the size 12 will work just fine.

Rohan Bags

★★★★★

I’ve had Rohan trousers for years,

One fine decision from them was to keep the width at the ankle to a neat 17.5/18cm. I hate floppy trousers around the ankles.

(Also bless them..!). They continue to offer longer leg lengths for us taller women. If trousers are a little long they can be shortened - pity the women who just cannot find trousers long enough.

I’m still hoping one day they will do a really “rich dark brown colour”. Not popular for some bizarre reason just now - (fashion?!). But, I’ll keep searching until I find this classic colour .

Hoping my newly ordered bags will be as forever serviceable as all my others 🤞.

I review after I receive, and hopefully keep them.

Womens stretch bags are my new favourite

★★★★★

As pockets are hugely important to me, I was delighted to find these stretch bags have 4 zipped pockets and 2 without. Can carry my iPhone, purse, dog treats and car keys and still have room for more.

The trousers are a joy in hot weather, have sun protection and with the stretch they are extremely comfortable.

Not often I find something new, that is so practical and I love, but these stretch bags tick all my boxes.

Stretch Bags

★★★★★

I love my Rohan stretch bags. I've had Rohan bags for years, but the stretch bags are more comfortable. I use them for travelling, smart casual, holidays, walking & anywhere where I need secure pockets. They are well designed, well made, wash and dry easily and last for years. It's a pity the current Women's style doesn't have a proper belt welt like the men's bags - they look much better with a proper stitched belt welt. Current olive green is a good colour. Field green was v attractive too. You can never have too many zipped pockets.

Thank you for your feedback regarding the Stretch Bags. I am pleased that you have found these to be suitable for you. This is a very popular product for us and we take your feedback very seriously. We will pass your comments onto the Design Team who are currently working on our new products for Spring/Summer 2024.

Lovely stretch

★★★★☆

This is the third pair of these specific trousers I have. Purely because they are comfy, stretch with me and easy to wash and dry. Great for spring and autumn before and after the shorts season. My only niggle is that each time I have purchase several pairs of the same size to find the ones which fit best because of the variability within the sizes. Only ever buy when there is money off since I think they are expensive.

Thank you for your feedback regarding the Stretch Bags. We are pleased that you have been happy with this style and hope you will enjoy wearing them.

Great walking trouser with plenty of give for extra movement on difficult terrain. We got caught in a heavy shower and though they are not showerproof they dried very quickly whilst walking. True to size. Smart enough for travelling in.

Have two pairs already and these for summer, being light coloured, are as good as ever. I’m a size 8 and fit really well although I always have to shorten them to fit my shorter legs. They wash very well too.

I wear the navy and black pairs as a ‘smarter than jeans’look when on holiday and will be using them in Italy later this summer.

A good fit

★★★★★

A good fit at the waist and over the hips and the longer length was just right. I am a size 12 and 5'9". The troursers look smart with good zips on the pockets. They are a narrow straight leg but not so much that they look like leggings. A lightweight feel and perfect for most of the year, but I couldn't fit thermals underneath so not suitable for the very coldest conditions. Good value in the sale.

Excellent summer walking trouser

★★★★★

I really like these trousers for the warmer weather. They are a neat shape, comfortable and have been easy care. The pockets are great. I have found the perfect place for my mobile is in the rear pocket which originally was too big but I've stitched a vertical line at a sensible spot to keep the phone from moving horizontal and at my side so it doesn't interfere with sitting down.

Love Stretch bags!

★★★★★

I am now the proud owner of just about every colour of stretch bags except the purple colour (I don’t like purple)! But like Catherine, one of your other reviewers, whose advice I took before ordering online, beware the sizing of the taupe colour. They do come up small. I normally take a size 8, but following the advice ordered a 10.

They are only marginally larger than the 8’s that I possess, and are an excellent fit. So.... apart from the caveat on the taupe sizing, 5 stars as usual for a Rohan quality, delivery, and customer service.

Brilliant, but beware rogue sizing!

★★★★★

Just taken advantage of the current offer to purchase my second pair of stretch Bags. I already have the 'ink' colour from last year, in size 12. However the new season's colours: acai purple and taupe, are running small and I have had to size up. It might help to note that. I can't mark the size on your review because the ink colour is consistent with your other women's trouser sizing. Staff in the store warned me about this size difference only in the Bags and it would be helpful to have a note so that people order the size that fits!

Women's Stretch Bags - great value, excellent fit

★★★★☆

I saw these trousers on the Rohan website and decided to check them out at the Oxford High Street store.

The staff were exceedingly helpful, going out of their way to get the right size and fit.

Normally I wear a size 10, but the size 8 short is just right. The material feels lightweight and easy to wear - just right for long-haul travel, as well as walking
