The Full Story+

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.


Washing Instructions
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 may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

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: 9 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 9 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.

2.5-LAYER BARRICADE™

Barricade™ is a waterproof, windproof and breathable technology that has been tested and measured to achieve a minimum initial Hydrostatic Head measure of 20,000mm and an initial Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate measure of 20,000 g/m2/24 hrs. With our 2.5-layer construction method, a water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together. A partial print is applied to the inside of the fabric to protect the membrane from abrasion.

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.

3 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.

I love this jacket and the length is perfect for me. I would not want it to be any longer. Please don't alter the length! I find the jacket excellent for packing in my bag when shopping in town, as well as wearing for walks etc. I have in fact just ordered the same jacket in a different colour. The only thing I would change is to not to have the white inside showing and it to be the same colour as the jacket as it would make it look smarter. Definitely waterproof, comfortable to wear and lightweight.

Update

★★★★☆

I reviewed this when I first got it, and I want to add an update. I've taken this jacket on several trips now, and it more or less lives in my bag all summer. I still like it. It's so light that I can take it to places where previously I'd have risked going without a waterproof. It's still giving me great protection - in the places where it covers me. And the new colours this year are nice.

But it's still way too short. I can't regard it as a serious waterproof when my hips get wet. Please, Rohan, if you still have to be wedded to this short design, make a thigh-length model in the same lightweight fabric!

Very good light waterproof

★★★★☆

After reading other reviews I bought a medium, I'm usually a 10-12. It's really quite generous in the body, and the sleeves and back are a really good length, so I wouldn't want to go smaller and lose the length. At least I can get plenty of layers under it. Haven't tried it in rain yet but it is cosier than you'd expect, really windproof and no issues with breathability.

Positives: and it is mostly positive:

very light, (could almost run in it), good cuff adjustment from very snug to wide enough for gloves; good sized hood which goes over a hat or another hood;

Negatives:

The zip doesn't seem all that robust; the fabric is so light that the inside pocket zip shows as a slight bump through the fabric, I wonder if it will get more noticeable

The pockets are a bit odd, you wouldn't really walk along with your hands in them, and they drag the jacket if you put eg a large phone in them, just a function of it being really light I expect

Too short

★★☆☆☆

I am 5ft 7in and this jacket is just too short. It means when you put your hands in the pockets your hugging your bust which is just wrong on so many levels. Hate to view it when the pockets are full OMG! Otherwise it’s very light and lovely materiel. I’m sure if I could keep it I’d stay dry. Brilliant for a jacket when it might be summer but the weather is unpredictable. I so wanted it to fit. How could they have it so bad for sizing.

Thank you for your feedback. Your comments on the pockets and sizing will be passed onto our Design team who are currently working on our Autumn/Winter 2022 range.

Women's Momentum Jacket

★★★★☆

I bought this to replace my very old Rohan Elite jacket. Both are a size medium and the fit including sleeve and body length are very similar. The main design difference is the hood. I am only 5 ft tall and take size 12 in rohan trousers so the size is fine for me but I agree if taller than say 5' 4'' I suspect sleeve and body length may be on the short side and if more than size 12, could be tight around hip area. Performance seems ok although not yet worn it in heavy rain. Rather expensive at full price but reasonable value in sale.

Incredibly Lightweight

★★★★★

I have only had this jacket for a few weeks and have not yet tested in seriously wet weather. I bought Titanium colour in size medium. I read previous reviews and went up a size from small - actually I ordered both sizes in the sale and kept the best fitting which for me was medium. I like to wear a lightweight insulated jacket underneath my waterproof jacket so the medium was definitely the right choice even though I am usually a size 10 in Rohan. Ideally I'd have preferred a brighter colour but in the sale its good value.

outstanding lightweight waterproof

★★★★★

This is by far the best lightweight waterproof I have ever had. I tested it thoroughly on a recent visit to Mid Wales, where the rain was at times horizontal. The water literally bounced off the jacket leaving me totally dry. There is no doubt the jacket is also windproof. The hood can be adjusted so visibility is always good. Ok, so it isn't the cheapest waterproof around, but what price keeping dry on a long hike on a wet day!

Lovely jacket but sizing is strange. I bought a medium but usually buy a small. I am 5ft 2in and small build. The sleeves are just right for me and the length Is fine but would be too small for a taller person. Not sure why sizing is so different to before.

Great jacket

★★★★☆

This was bought to replace an older jacket and is a much nicer, softer material. I wanted a windproof waterproof that packs down easily and this fits the bill, although I haven't actually worn it in the rain yet but other reviews very positive The titanium colour is lovely and looks smart enough to take on city breaks. I was given the Latitude fleece in same colour to give option to wear together in really cold weather. The only thing to fault is the way the hood folds up. Considering price I would have thought That Rohan would have come up with something better, it rather spoils neckline of jacket., hence 4 stars. The hood on my last jacket folded neatly under a little flap and fastened with Velcro. When shops re-open I might pop in and see if I am being completely stupid but I can't get it to roll up neatly with that little tab! No problem with sizing as others have said but I am usually XS and had to buy Small as XS unfortunately no longer made.

Sorry to hear you that you are disappointed with the sizing. Please be assured we have passed your feedback on to our Design Team.

Performs well in heavy rain. Sizing comes small.

★★★★★

I'm 5ft 10 and size 12/14. I purchased the Momentum jacket in medium but, as other reviewers have said, I found that it was very small. The medium fit more like a small, with short sleeves and short body length. Rohan provided excellent customer service and exchanged it for a large, and this is the perfect fit. The sleeve and body lengths are perfect. It's very light-weight for popping into your handbag or backpack. I wore it the other day in torrential rain for a 4 hour walk and the jacket kept me dry without making me feel hot and sticky. Well worth the money.

Great comfortable jacket for keeping you dry but beware of sizing...

★★★★☆

I brought this as we are keen walkers. In the winter we walk all over Europe and can have warm rain, cooler days with rain and very windy wet days. I wanted a jacket that would cope with all the weather we have but that did not make me too hot or sweaty and I wanted to pack it in my backpack and forget about it until needed. This jacket is very comfortable and I love the color and the material. It keeps me nice and dry but importantly for me does not make me feel too warm or sweaty. The hood stays on and I can still see where I'm going. So all good on comfort, but I am only 5ft and usually buy petite sizes! I brought a size M. This jacket fits me very well. The sleeves are just the right length. Usually jacket sleeves are far too long but not these sleeves. I get good bum coverage but again jackets are usually long on me. It makes me wonder if the sleeves and length might be a bit short for someone taller than me? This is something other reviews have mentioned as well. I have experienced a large variation in sizes with Rohan, e.g. some shirts have been far too long in the sleeve. This kit is expensive and it would be nice to have consistent sizing. Hence four stars.

Longer, please!

★★★★☆

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?

Top Marks for Womens Momentum Jacket!

★★★★★

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.
