Ultra-compact, super-lightweight, waterproof trousers.

Designed to team up with our Elite Jacket to form one of the very lightest technical waterproof suits in the world, our Elite Overtrousers pack small enough to be a permanent fixture in your rucksack – even in high summer, they’re always worth carrying ‘just in case’.

The fabric is something really special. It’s a 3-layer material consisting of a polyamide outer, our high-spec Barricade™ membrane and a fine tricot lining. It’s amazingly durable – but at only 70 grams per square metre, astonishingly light. To put that in perspective that’s 12gsm lighter than our summer shirt fabric. Which, when you stop to think about it, is almost incredible.

They have been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish to stop the face fabric wetting out and maximise breathabilty. This industry-leading process has been proven to operate at 80% effectiveness after 20 washes – which for waterproof trousers probably means 10 years.

With a fabric this light, we could have opted to strip out features and components and make something that’s so light it could float away. But we’ve decided not to. Our Elite Overtrousers are built with durable, high-quality components and include all the essential features. They’re fully-functional shell trousers that live up to Rohan’s reputation for strength, durability and longevity.

They feature long side-zips with two-way pullers. They’re easy to get on over big boots and allow you to ventilate the upper legs. The hems are adjustable to give either a loose or technical close fit around your boots.

The waist is adjustable and features an elasticated, extended panel at the rear for improved comfort and a great fit. Soft-touch fabrics line the waist.

The zipped rear pocket doubles as a Packpocket™ into which the trousers pack for compact storage.

    Technologies +
    Elemental Protection
    Wind - Highly Wind Resistant

    Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are 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 x1

    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: 275g

    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: 700ml

    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: 4 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.
