Long on protection, short on fuss
Long on protection, short on fuss
Offering complete waterproof protection in conjunction with a relaxed, understated, unfussy appearance, our Cloudcover Jacket is the technical walking jacket that you can wear everyday.
It’s cut slightly longer than average for extra protection – and that’s very deliberate. It’s certainly a feature you’ll appreciate the very first time you sit down on a wet rock.
The fabric takes advantage of our advanced Barricade™ technology in a two-layer construction with a soft polyester face fabric and a comfortable mesh liner. So it’s 100% waterproof and, with our Active Diffusion™ technology, phenomenally breathable – even in challenging, humid conditions. The outer fabric has been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish to ensure that it doesn’t ‘wet out’ and impair breathability.
The Cloudcover Jacket features a full-protection mountain hood which adjusts with our clever One-Pull™ adjustment system and rolls away extremely neatly into the collar of the jacket when it’s not required.
There are two zipped hand pockets on the outside together with a large zipped chest pocket. It’s large enough to take an OS map and doubles as a Packpocket™ into which the whole jacket packs down.
The jacket is lined in a soft, comfortable and highly breathable mesh and features a large lower storage pockets – it’s the perfect place for stashing (and drying off) a hat or gloves.
The full-length front zip is protected a two storm flaps and features a soft, comfortable throat protector.
The waist, hem and cuffs are all totally adjustable allowing you to fine-tune the fit and tailor the ventilation to suit the conditions.

Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. We offer two ratings according to use: Windproof and 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.
Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.
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.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
