Part coat, part shirt, the insulated Transit Jacket is outdoor performance meets urban style – lightweight, resilient and unbelievably insulating.
Our Transit Jacket looks like a shirt, protects like a jacket and insulates like a fleece – a perfect seasonal choice for when the temperature drops.
The outer material is hard-wearing polyester treated with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish to help shrug off light showers. Lined with 100% polyamide and filled with Insuloft™ synthetic wadding, it provides really effective protection from the elements. Lightweight but with a surprisingly efficient amount of warmth, this fantastic jacket is perfect to take you from spring through to autumn.
The jacket has a stand collar and self-fabric placket to cover the main zip and help give it a neater appearance. The hem is stooped slightly for a bit of extra coverage and the cuffs are adjustable to seal in the warmth.
An external, zipped security pocket at the chest means you can securely carry any small essentials with you. There are also two external hand pockets and two open-top pockets inside to store some gloves or other easy-to-grab items.
Weighing just 300g, this jacket is great for travel – it packs small, washes easily and dries quickly.
Take it with you walks in the country or to European city breaks for a versatile piece that offers plenty of warmth almost all year round.
100% polyester outer and filling with 100% polyamide lining.
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.
With a better warmth to weight ratio than fleece and far better performance when wet than down, Insuloft™ is the most practical and thermally efficient insulator available. It is an advanced synthetic that is tough, lightweight, packable, fast drying and easy to wash.
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.
We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
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.

Over the years I have owned several down jackets but they are not always convenient for cool weather travelling: if it suddenly warms up you are stuck with lugging around a bulky item. The answer is layering and the Transit Jacket is great for the purpose. Its minimalist format means you can carry it as an extra spare layer. You can wear it under a rain jacket and/or wear it over a fleece. It is tidy enough to wear on top in an urban environment. Rohan have obviously avoided details like hoods, zip pockets, deep storm flaps etc to keep the bulk down. I have washed and re-proofed mine with good results. It is "great value" if you can buy it in a sale. It works well for me!
Its a bit light for winter but OK for those slightly chillier evenings. The breast pocket is too small and the two inside pockets should have a closure - leaving it open as per design is not the best option in my opinion. The new grey version is a better colour than the Abyss Blue which does not go with much.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
