The Full Story+

The Women’s Brecon Jacket is a classic all season shell that provides complete protection from the elements and is perfect for layering over a base layer and/or fleece for extra warmth, worn with large protective gloves. Great for when you're exploring the hills or further afield, making it a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

The hem and cuffs provide you with the flexibility to fine-tune the fit to your preference so that you can continue your activities as comfortable as possible.  Large functional pockets are designed to be worn with a rucksack and won't interfere with you when reaching for your OS map.

So, whether you're taking on mountains or slower-paced walks, the weather plays a big part in our outdoor adventures. This is why the Brecon Jacket comes with our renowned Barricade Standard, which combines our latest fabric technology for being waterproof, windproof and breathable. Our innovative 2-Layer Barricade standard uses technology to bond the water-repellent outer fabric with the internal breathable membrane, which is then lined with taffeta and mesh for your added comfort. 

For our garments to be classed as reaching the Barricade Standard the fabric must achieve a minimum Hydrostatic Head of 20,000mm. Hydrostatic Head is a fabric measurement way of measuring how waterproof a garment is. The fabric is held tightly in place and water is then exerted at a high pressure until the fabric starts to bead with water. The higher the count the more waterproof the garment is.

The jacket treated with a DWR finish which boosts the fabric's water repellency. In addition, it forces water droplets to 'bead up' and run off the outside of the fabric, maintaining its effectiveness.

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: 6 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 6 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.

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.

4 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.

2-Layer Barricade

The Barricade standard gives you reassurance of a high level of waterproof protection. All of our waterproofs must meet our Barricade Standard to be ten times the British standard for waterproofing.

The waterproof fabric of the garment has two layers. The water-repellent outer fabric and the PU hydrophilic membrane are bonded together. In addition, a loose lining protects the membrane from the inside.

Women’s Brecon Jacket

★★★★☆

Good fit - not too tight, not too loose, although if you want to put a jumper underneath it might be wise to go up a size. Internal and external pockets a reasonable size.

Main issue for me is that the hood can’t be tucked/zipped away. Felt like penny-pinching on Rohan’s part.
