The Full Story+

We’ve designed a women’s waterproof jacket that you can depend on, whatever the adventure.

Whether you’re climbing, hiking or just wandering around town, the weather has a way of sneaking up on you. Our state-of-the-art 3-layer Barricade™ Knit waterproof technology goes above and beyond to keep you dry.

The Hydrostatic Head is the measure of how much water a jacket can take before it permeates the fabric. For a coat to be labelled waterproof, it has to be able to withstand 1,500mm of water. We wanted to top that. Our women’s Helix jacket has a Hydrostatic Head of 20,0000mm meaning you’ll stay bone dry inside and the adventure only stops when you want it to, not when the clouds decide to open.

Highly waterproof coats are known for a lack of breathability. But overachievers that we are, we wanted to prove that wrong. This women’s raincoat not only offers downpour proof waterproofing, but our Barricade™ technology gives a Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate of 20,000g per metre squared every 24 hours.

That’s the amount of moisture vapour that can pass through the jacket over time. Basically, this raincoat keeps the weather out without making things clammy on the inside.

It passes our 20:20 Barricade™ benchmark, which means it’s pretty much as waterproof and as breathable as a jacket can be.

Beyond breathability and weatherproofing, we’ve designed the Helix jacket to be packed with features that make it a go-to outdoor item.

Take packability for example. There’s no point having a super waterproof coat if you can’t take it with you. This jacket has a built-in Packpocket™ meaning it packs into itself and doesn’t take up much space in your luggage. It’s also stretchy, so movement isn’t hindered, and it’s quiet, meaning no more annoying swooshing when you move.

The jacket has two exterior pockets, which are big enough to fit an OS map, and one hidden interior pocket for smaller valuables. There’s a dropped rear hem and fixed bonded peak hood for extra protection from whatever the weather has in store for you. Plus, the lightweight YKK Aquaguard® zips and adjustable hem and cuffs ensure everything is sealed and wind, water and weather stay outside.

Finally, it’s super soft. That’s not usually a big selling feature, we know, but it’s something we didn’t want to compromise on either. Comfort—especially if spending time in the rain—is key.

This women’s waterproof Helix jacket offers top rated waterproofing and breathability while being lightweight, packable and durable. Designed for everything from everyday weather woes and wild wet adventures, this is a raincoat that combines the comfort of a softshell jacket with the weatherproofing of a hardshell coat.

Lightweight - Weight: 319g

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: 950ml

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
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.

3-layer Barricade™ knit waterproof technology

Our 3-layer Barricade™ knit waterproof technology is used to make raincoats that are ultra-waterproof yet breathable. The three-layer design bonds together a water-repellent outer fabric, a breathable membrane and a moisture-wicking lining.

The fabric has a Hydrostatic Head of 20,000mm—this is the amount of water the fabric can withstand before it seeps through. And a Moisture Vapour Transmission rate of 20,000g per metre squared every 24 hours—this is the amount of water vapour that passes through the jacket over 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.

Packpocket™

Clever design is more often than not about what to take off rather than what to put on. It’s about giving one feature multiple functions. That’s why many of our garments feature a Packpocket™. This handy addition converts pockets into space-saving storage by compressing the garment into itself. You could use it as a travel pillow when it’s all packed down too.
