Totally waterproof, extremely breathable and completely windproof, the perfect choice for trekking and walking.Read more…
Designed for trekking, walking and active outdoor use, our Momentum Jacket is a lightweight, super-packable hard shell jacket that takes advantage of our 2.5-layer Barricade™ technology.
It’s totally waterproof, extremely breathable and completely windproof – offering a reassuringly high level of protection, without the weight penalty. In fact, its low weight combined with very compact pack-size, mean it’s the sort of waterproof that you can always stick in your rucksack - ‘just-in-case’.
The fabric itself is surprisingly soft and has a light, natural stretch to offer unencumbered freedom of movement without an unduly baggy fit – nice to have all the time, but really useful if you like to add a bit of hands-on scrambling to a typical day in the mountains.
Our Momentum Jacket features a full-protection mountain hood with a bonded peak and adjustments at the front and rear. When not in use, it rolls away neatly and is held in place with a convenient snap tab.
The two outer pockets are large enough to store an OS map and are situated above the line of a rucksack hip-belt. An internal pocket provides a secure storage option for outdoor essentials.
Fully adjustable cuffs and a shaped, adjustable hem, fine-tune the fit, keep out the elements and complete the specification of this impressive lightweight waterproof.
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 perfect fabric for an all-round leisure jacket or one for gentle low level walking.
The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A partial print is applied to the inside face of the fabric to protect the waterproof membrane.
Caring 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.
100% polyamide with waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology and 100% polyester lining.
Pack Size: 650ml
Drying Time: 9 hours
Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. We offer two ratings according to use: Windproof and Highly Wind Resistant.
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.
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.
Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.
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.

It's certainly a very nice jacket: it feels good, and it's much lighter than previous ones I've had. I bought it to replace an older jacket that I used for holidays and around town, rather than for serious walking. It vanishes easily into a handbag or backpack. The jacket is very comfortable, and the fabric is much pleasanter than other makes of jacket that I looked at. I love the damson colour, and the hood covers my head well. In this week's foul weather, it's done very well at keeping the rain away from what it covers. The problem is what it doesn't cover: in common with all the lightweight alternatives in the shop except the full-length ones, it's not long enough to cover my hips adequately. I thought the little bit of extra length given by the shaping at front and back would make it work for me, but it doesn't: I'm getting wet in places I really don't want to be wet. This means it's only really useful if I wear it with overtrousers, which limits its usefulness. It's probably ideal if you're several inches shorter than me, but please, Rohan, can those of us with longer backs have jackets that properly cover our behinds?
Bought this jacket four weeks ago and over the last couple of weeks the British weather has certainly put it to the test! I can definitely vouch for it being fully waterproof, even in the heaviest shower.
It's so light, easy to pack away in your bag and the creases drop out almost as soon as you put it back on.
Great to have a colour option too, instead of the usual black or blue options of so many brands.
I love this coat and would highly recommend it.
