Perfect for trekking and winter travel but equally useful as an everyday winter gilet, our Icepack Vest provides functional, compressible insulation and understated good looks.
It’s filled with Insuloft™, our superbly efficient synthetic insulation. Pound for pound, it’s almost as effective as natural down. Unlike natural down, however, it doesn’t lose its warmth the minute it gets wet, so it’s absolutely perfect for the damp, cold conditions that are the hallmarks of the British winter. We’ve gone for an 80gsm weight for a real insulation boost – where you need it most.
It’s also extremely easy to wash and dries very quickly – it certainly doesn’t require any sort of special treatment, protection or extra care – which is very reassuring if you’re on an extended trekking trip.
The outer is a lightweight blend of 88% polyamide and 12% elastane with a matte, cotton-like texture. It’s highly wind resistant, extremely soft and, because it’s been treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish, it’ll shrug off light snow and rain showers.
The vest features two zipped hand pockets with glove-friendly zipper pulls, a zipped external chest pocket, plus an internal security pockets which doubles up as a Packpocket™ into which the whole vest packs for convenient stowage.
An adjustable draw cord hem helps to fine-tune the fit and seal in the warmth.

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.
