If you spent over £200 on a mac, what’s the least you’d expect?

If you’re anything like us, you’d probably say: “Well, it’s got to be waterproof.”

Yet, if you spent that sort of money on a mac from the high street, you might well be disappointed. It would probably look smart, it would probably protect your clothes from dust and odd splash on the way to work – and it would almost certainly have a very fancy checked lining.

But it’s unlikely to be waterproof. Properly waterproof. Water resistant maybe. But, if you’ve ever lived in Manchester or Seattle, the term ‘water resistant’ has the sort of unnerving connotations that make you think: “I’d better take my brolly.”

Our Globetrotter Mac is completely different. It’s made from exactly the same high-spec Barricade™ technology that we use in our specialist outdoor jackets. It’s a proven fabric, trusted and relied upon by trekkers, mountaineers and committed walkers all over the world.

It’s totally waterproof and phenomenally breathable. We’ve also given it a special Durable Water Repellency™ finish – which means that rain just beads up on the surface and runs off without soaking into the fabric. The polyester fabric itself strikes a great balance between appearance and performance – it’s tough but it’s also soft and light with a wonderful drape and an attractive, natural hand feel.

Our Globetrotter Mac features a neat, zip-off hood which packs into its own little storage bag. There are two large zipped hand pockets which are mesh lined for lightness, packability and breathability. The large internal pocket doubles up as a Packpocket™ into which the whole Mac packs for convenient stowage.

Barricade™ Washing Instructions

Rohan Barricade™ waterproofs are easy to care for. Simply machine wash them at 40°C with a regular detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of the detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric softeners or bleaching agents. Garments may be drip dried. Over time, the water repellent treatment on the surface of the fabric may become less effective and water will stop beading up on the outside of the jacket. Tumble drying on a warm, not hot, setting or careful ironing on the coolest setting will rejuvenate the finish.

Fabric: Outer: 100% polyester with Barricade™ PU hydrophilic membrane and Durable Water Repellency™; Lining: 100% polyester.
Weight: 630g
Pack Size: 1800ml

    Elemental Protection
    Wind - Windproof

    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.

    Rain - Totally Waterproof

    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.

    Functional Features
    Secure Pockets x3

    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.

    Packpocket

    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.

    Fundamental Principles
    Lightweight - Weight: 630g

    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.

    Packable - Pack Size: 1800ml

    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: 7 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.

    Our Technologies
    Barricade

    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.

    Durable Water Repellency

    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.
