It was the renowned fellwalker and author Alfred Wainwright who one said “There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Wainwright's famous words are particularly apt for this new version of our Vapour Trail Jacket.
Cut slightly longer and with a shaped, adjustable hem and a drawcord waist the Vapour Trail Long Jacket is the perfect companion for leisure, travel and city breaks. Smart and versatile for the town, resilient and practical for the country - it has a totally waterproof and breathable internal Barricade™ membrane which actually responds to humidity. In other words the harder you work, the more it breathes.
It's manufactured using a clever 2.5 layer construction, which means the protective lining is actually printed directly onto the inside of the membrane, helping to cut down the weight. It also reduces bulk, so it’ll pack down nice and small into its own integral Packpocket™.
The generous length provides a greater level of protection against driving wind and rain - great for a bracing walk along the prom on a blustery morning or for standing on a rainy touchline on school sports day. Two external zipped security pockets and an adjustable hood complete the picture and of course the renowned Rohan durability and quality are built-in as standard.
Think about it, this long version of our famous Vapour Trail Jacket could mean you never experience bad weather again.
100% polyester with waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology.
Pack Size: 1,800ml
Drying Time: 5 hours
Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are 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.
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.

I wanted a waterproof that doesn't look like an outdoor jacket and the colour attracted me to the Vapour Trail Long jacket. When you see the inside of the material it is obviously a waterproof but the exterior looks less so unless you touch the fabric. I can wear a fleece under it or it will completely cover a smart, town jacket to keep out the rain.
I'm really pleased with my vapour trail long jacket. I love the colour and that you can pull it in at the waste. It's great for warmer spring days or with layers for a cooler day. This jacket is stylish and practical. Everyone comments on how much they love it.
