The Full Story+

Using tightly knitted polyamide with a high level of stretch ensures the Velocity Leggings hug the shape of the body for complete support and comfort during high activity.

The densely knitted fabric provides unrestricted freedom of movement and compression, helping you go the distance and supporting your legs at the same time. The stretch also helps with shape retention so they’ll keep looking their best for years to come.

The fabric is so densely knitted that you don’t need to worry about them being sheer. They feature one secure zipped pocket at the back of the waistband, which is big enough for most phones or some cash or credit cards.

The waistband is deep and contoured, designed to fit high into the hollow of the back for complete coverage whilst walking, running or scrambling. There’s also an inner leg gusset that helps prevent chaffing for continued comfort even after a long day.

The Velocity Leggings have both UPF 40+ Sun Protection* and a Durable Water Repellency™ finish, so come rain or shine you’re protected from the elements. They’re also comfortable enough to wear under walking trousers for an extra base-layer and for added warmth should the weather call for it.

The nature of the fabric means these leggings are really easy to care for and dry quickly, so you can wash them in the sink or the machine and they’ll be dry in just a few hours ready to be worn again.

*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: 73% polyamide, 27% elastane with Durable Water Repellency™

Lightweight - Weight: 216g

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: 3 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 3 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.

SUN PROTECTION UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognized 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.

1 Secure Pocket

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.

My review of velocity leggings

★★★★★

Just received them. They’re snug fitting, comfortable and wind proof. Look forward to wearing for walking in the lakes, and outdoor tennis.

I’m a 10/12 and went for a small. Was worried they might not fit, as I have a small waist with larger hips, but they’re comfortable and close fitting at the waist with lots of stretch.

Brilliant leggings

★★★★★

As a keen cyclist I have been waiting for compression walking tights as per my cycling gear. Hoorah for Rohan! Superb for summer and colder months, for really cold winter walks I would use them as a base layer, unless Rohan are considering bringing out thermal leggings. One additional feature could be ankle zips so that they are not constantly stretched over the heel when putting them on and taking them off. Love, love, love them!!

Great leggings!

★★★★★

Very comfortable and great fit. Great for the warmer months. Plenty of stretch for those big hills but equally comfortable for walking the dog. Love these and will buy another pair .
