A blend of natural cotton and technical Coolmax® polyester, our Jeans are a fast-drying, lightweight, comfortable and practical alternative to regular denim jeans.
Perfectly normal jeans, just much cleverer.
When the original jeans-makers of yesteryear produced their tough, hardwearing work trousers nobody would deny they were fit for purpose. However, what worked well in 1873 isn't necessarily appropriate for today's lifestyle and over a century later the world has changed. Let's face it, modern women are unlikely to be panning for gold, roping steers or mining for tin. So, why would they need a pair of riveted-together trousers made from a heavyweight, unyielding denim which takes a week to dry after it's been washed? When you stop to think about it, traditional denim jeans might look good but aren't actually very practical unless your name happens to be Calamity Jane.
When we set out to make our women's jeans, we knew we had to make them better and more comfortable than anything which has gone before. We did this by using our extensive knowledge of current technical fabrics to bring old fashioned denim jeans into the current century and better suited to modern women.
Rohan Jeans are made from Denim Plus™, a sophisticated fusion of cotton and advanced modern synthetics.
The results are remarkable. Because around a third of the fabric is polyester, they’re much faster drying than regular jeans – in practical terms, they dry overnight. So you can travel with only one pair. Which is quite an advantage.
They also offer a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
And, unless you’re an absolute stickler, they don’t really require any ironing – although you’ll find the lightest, briefest touch from a warm iron will create an effortlessly smart appearance.
Designed to sit just below the natural waist, our jeans our designed in a classic style and this capri version is tailored to be calf length, it looks great and is a bit cooler for sunnier climes.
They feature two hand pockets and two rear patch pockets with a discreet zipped pocket in the rear yoke.
*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.
Fabric: Denim Plus™ 66% cotton 34% Coolmax® polyester.
Pack Size: 900ml
Drying Time: 7 hours
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
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.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
