The Full Story+

We’ve been using Microgrid fabric since the turn of the century, approaching half a million sales since its launch. Now with added stretch, for greater freedom of movement.

Designed using advanced Microgrid fleece, a soft, brushed polyester fabric which uses a sophisticated ‘needle-out’ knitting technique to create a grid pattern on the surface of the fabric. These grids give the jacket an attractive textured appearance whilst enabling the fabric to trap air - this is the key to the jacket’s surprisingly high levels of warmth while still remaining incredibly lightweight and packable.

It’s also breathable and naturally high wicking, allowing the garment to management moisture, keeping you cool and comfortable with all the same warmth as a much heavier, ordinary fleece.

This remarkable material maximises the properties of its stretch for supreme comfort, fit and freedom of movement without restriction. The sleeve cuffs also have thumbholes, which provide additional warmth, comfort and protection.

It features three zipped pockets for security of valuables, one of which doubles up as a Packpocket™ for convenient storage. With mesh lining that can also double as a vent when the pocket is left open, perfect for active outdoor enthusiasts. Layer up under a waterproof or windproof outer layer or perfect on its own as a fleece jacket.

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: 5 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 5 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.

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.

Not so good this year.

★★☆☆☆

I have 4 of these jackets and am disappointed with the quality of the fabric and the fit. The fabric is certainly lighter but that’s not a benefit, it impacts the fit. I loved the way the previous fabric gave a bit of a feminine shaping to the jacket, it held things in place. Medium always fits me in this jacket but this time it looks baggy and a bit ‘old laddish’ in the middle. Please, please revert back to the previous fabric, this just loses it shape as you wear it.. waited a long time for navy to reappear in the jacket, just so disappointed..

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear you are disappointed with the new Microgrid. It is lighter as you mentioned however the stretch fabric should help improve the fit and enhance the comfort. Our Design are currently working on Spring/Summer 2023, your comments will be passed on.

Women's Stretch Microgrid Jacket

★★★★☆

Love the Teal colour. Fits well (size medium i am standard 14) Very useful as a extra layer on frosty cold mornings or as a light jacket during the day. I haven’t had thus Rohan garment before so am enjoying the lightness of the fabric. Will be buying another in Navy its going to be a significant part of my wardrobe this year.

Women’s stretch micro grid jacket (teal green)

★★☆☆☆

Colour is a bit darker than pictures suggest.

The new fabric looks and feels cheap compared to the original.

The fit is weird and rather baggy and ugly at the back compared with the nice bum hugging shape on my previous dark blue jacket.

I only kept this item because I wanted some colour in my life in these miserable times

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear you have been disappointed. The New Stretch Microgrid and has been designed to be lighter, with the same thermal properties as previous ones but with the added extra stretch. Your feedback will be passed onto our design team who are currently working on Autumn/Winter 2022 range.

★★★★☆

Love this colour .

Am a big fan of the microrib and find them so versatile : warm enough for dog walking, travelling and lounge wear . Yet smart enough for work .

Think the price point is rather high given recent price hike

In terms of cost per wear probably irons it out.
