Functional Features

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.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 210gLightweight - Weight: 210g

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: 450mlPackable - Pack Size: 450ml

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: 2 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 2 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.

Best shorts I've ever owned


Ideal for travelling, with secure pockets that keep passport, wallet, phone, tickets etc. safe.

Also used for much long-distance walking/camping in the Alps and Auvergne. Lightweight, hard wearing and quick drying.

Short Shorts


The Bags Shorts have a 5 inch inside leg – possibly too short for some people, but I like this length. For a longer length, the Savannah Shorts are a similar product but have an 8.5 inch inside leg.

The Bags Shorts have two hand pockets and four zipped security pockets – many items can be stored safely. Plus there is an accessory D-ring so keys or other valuables can be attached.

These shorts do not crease at all, and only take an hour or so to dry after washing. As a result, they are very useful for hiking and trekking when a quick turnaround of clothes is required.

The material is a mixture of cotton and polyester, making these shorts very breathable – effective in tropical climates such as South East Asia. And they are very tough and strong – no damage done even when caught on trees or rocks.

I have recently purchased my first pair of these shorts – I will definitely buy another pair soon.

Men's Bags Shorts


This latest two pairs in pimento and ink are but the latest in a long line of Bags Shorts that I have been pleased to own. I was delighted when Bags Shorts reappeared a few years ago as I had worn several pairs of the original, shorter version. I still have these pairs and hope one day to be slim enough to fit into them again. Bags Shorts are hard-wearing, nicely cut and have lots of useful pockets, without ever looking like cargo shorts. The material is supremely comfortable and very quick-drying. One tiny quibble - I find the horizontal zip on the front pockets sometimes jams at the fully open position.

Men's bags shorts


Not sure how many pairs of bags shorts I've had now. Still have some rather old ones, and still the best all-round shorts that Rohan make. Shorts that are - well, actually - shortish rather than near-knee length. They allow complete freedom of movement when walking up and down mountains, and fine around town too. And the pimento orange colour is superb!
