The Full Story+

Made with our Multiflex Light™ two way stretch fabric, our Roamers are still our most comfortable walking trousers.

They’re made from the same sophisticated blend of polyamide and elastane making them tough, stretchy, wind-resistant and light. They’ve also got Dynamic Moisture Control™ for high-wicking breathability and an internal elasticated waist for unrivalled comfort.

As always, they’ve got a nice understated appearance, but now we’ve gone a step further by removing the knee seam and softening the edges of the pockets to give them a cleaner look and a more comfortable feel. They’ll go the distance on the toughest treks, whilst not looking or feeling out of place when you’re bobbing around town or enjoying a meal in a country pub.

We’ve also added thoughtful features that will enhance your comfort and keep them looking nicer for longer. We’ve adjusted the belt loops to fit wider belts, as well as the zipped security pocket hidden within the front pocket to make it easier to access. To keep your Roamers looking their best, we’ve added anti-scuff tape to the hem to reduce wear and tear on tough treks.

Our Roamers are still the same comfortable and versatile walking trousers you know and love. They’re still perfect for year-round comfort. If you’re walking in Britain from spring through to autumn, you’d be hard pressed to find a better choice. And, if you’re wearing them in the high summer, you’ll be pleased to know they still offer UPF 40+ Sun Protection*. 

*A Note on Sun Protection

All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

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: 3 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.

SUN PROTECTION UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

2 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.

DYNAMIC MOISTURE CONTROL™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Roamers not quite the same

★★★☆☆

I have had several pairs of Roamers over the years and bought 2 more pairs recently. I notice that the waistband is not as firm as before and tends to curl over which is not a good look. Also, previously there was a diagonal strip across the knee which, presumably, protected the area from bagging. The new version does not have this. I am size 18 but in Roamers I take a 14 Short but I'm not going to complain about that!!

Thank you for your review. The knee seam has been removed to give the Roamers a cleaner finish and to enhance comfortability. The waistband features bar tacks to help keep the internal waistband in place, any further stitching would compromise the overall product. We hope you will enjoy this improved style.

Fabric again

★★★★☆

I have three pairs of Roamers- they are fantastic for travel, trekking and leisure. They have a good fit and miraculously accommodate any extra pounds gained on holiday. However, I cannot but agree with the review left by 'Quality' earlier in June: after constant wear, the fabric is prone to pilling in between the inner thighs. You might say this problem is inevitable due to friction, but this hasn't happened to my trusted pair of old Trailblazers, which have seen a fair bit of the world and still look as pristine as when I first bought them years and years ago.

Once you sort out the problem with the fabric, I know several ladies and myself would kill for a pair of white Roamers and white Roamers shorts!

Change in quality of Roamers

★★★☆☆

I have worn these trousers for as long as they have been for sale and always found them really good quality and fit. My last pair have not been the same robust quality in respect of the fabric? I had my latest pair for a few weeks before the front of the legs have all bobbled and look old and scruffy. This never used to happen to this extent. The fabric has gone thinner over the years too and I feel disappointed with my lovely trousers that I have always worn. For the price I think they need to rethink the fabric durability as usually they keep looking good for a long time.

Thank you for your review. Pilling is a natural characteristic of many fabrics and this is usually caused by friction however, pilling will not alter the performance of the garment. For your reference, the fabric has not been amended and we have used the same level of quality for a number of seasons.

Comfortable fit

★★★★☆

I was worried the new design would be too tight over the hips like most of the other trousers I ever try on, but the fit is good - a little bit trimmer but still room for the hips and to be able to sit comfortably without the back pulling down. At last the seam has gone from half way down the leg - it defined them too much as "walking trousers" and the great thing about Rohan Roamers trousers is they are so comfortable I want to wear them for work as well as walking. Given the leg pocket is pretty useless anyway, this could be omitted as well and there would be no zips or seams anywhere visible. I wear 12 Short.

Unthoughtful changes to Roamers

★☆☆☆☆

Today I went to purchase some new roamer trousers and roamer shorts, I already have 4 pairs of roamer trousers and 1 pair of shorts. I noted that they have been updated and am disappointed to find that you can no longer fit a mobile phone in the zipped thigh pocket and the shorts no longer have a zipped back pocket. My phone is small only 5.5 inches long. I shall definitely not be purchasing these anymore, which is very disappointing.

Thank you for your review. Sorry you have been disappointed with the pockets. We have softened the edges of the pockets to give them a cleaner look and a more comfortable feel. We always appreciate feedback and I will pass this on to the Design Team.

Personally, I really love the changes, they are far less flappy. I wear them walking, around the house and in town. My new favourite trousers.

Strider replacements

★★★★☆

I bought these for my wife to replace the many pairs of Striders she has worn over the years. She always had size 8 regular. However these new size 8 regular Roamers are of a lighter thinner material but the leg length is now longer. I have need to send them back to be replaced with size 8 short. The size 8 remains a good fit.

Roamers

★★☆☆☆

I have worn Roamers for over 10 years and have several pairs in various colours. The design has had minor changes over the years but the trousers remained essentially the same blend of style and functionality. However, I was dispappointed to find that the latest version no longer have the useful zipped security pockets. The pockets are still there but they are they are too small to be of any use - the inner one will only accommodate a single credit card. On the older styles, both pockets could be used for a phone or slim purse. This is no longer the case. I will therefore be returning the trousers.

This is my 6th pair of Roamers over 10 years or so. I have lost weight in lockdown and this is my treat for next summer! The quality and fit are still the same, excellent, and the price for the Navy was reduced, and will be a good colour for summer.I love the waist as it is high and always comfortable.with the elastic inside. I got a 14S for a change as I am 5ft 7ins and always have to turn up Rohan trousers. The length was good and I can take advantage of the anti scuff tape at last!

Still versatile despite plainer looks.

★★★★☆

I’ve been buying Rohan Roamers for years. They are the most comfortable and versatile trousers with excellent fit for me. The new design still meets this description but a number of the design tweaks seem to have been introduced to cut the costs of manufacture. Gone are the smart top stitched seams, gone is the interesting pocket shape, gone is the “hidden” pocket - it’s now visible and not as accessible, gone is the curved stitching of the leg pocket along with the good quality metal zip pull tab. The replacement black rubbery one is very obvious and looks cheap. The trousers just look very ordinary now.

Hi Cozzer5, thank you for taking the time to review our roamers. I shall be sure to pass your feedback on to the relevant department.

What have you done to my favourite trousers. The only thing I like about the new version is the bigger belt loops.

The tiny secret pocket isn't even worth being there, and the same for the side leg pocket.
