Warm, versatile and stylish – the Alligin Vest makes a functional layering piece in extreme conditions or as a top layer in temperate conditions, a great choice to protect you from season to season.Read more…
With a touch of retro design but full of modern-day technology, the Alligin Fleece is a functional, high-pile fleece that offers excellent warmth right where you need it, a great choice for year round protection for adventurous hikes and treks.
This versatile piece means you can wear it with a T-shirt in spring, over a jumper in autumn or under a waterproof in winter for excellent warmth across the most important part of the body season to season.
The Alligin Vest is made with our famous Airlight fabric on the shoulders and chest pocket that not only adds a vintage aesthetic reminiscent of our Kyle Fleece of the 90’s, but also works to provide improved durability in those high-wear areas.
The tufted, lofty high-pile fabric traps an abundance of warmth, yet the open structure of the weave provides good breathability. This also results in a quick-dry time and with the added benefit of being easycare, you can wash it, hang it up to dry overnight and it will be ready to go again by morning.
Unlike the itchy, coarse high-pile of yesteryear, our new high-pile is luxuriously soft and supple so it feels great against the skin. There’s also stretch binding on the neck and front edge of the arm holes, and elasticated hem for improved fit and comfort.
There’s one secure zipped chest pocket and two secure zipped hand pockets, so there’s plenty of storage space for your essentials, and they also make great hand warmers if it gets really chilly.
Enjoy a touch of retro aesthetic with your modern day high-pile fleece vest. Providing unrivalled warmth, an abundance of style and plenty of versatility – the Alligin Vest is an essential choice for the adventurous at heart.

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.
