Regular trousers – that happen to be waterproof.Read more…
Our Dry Requisite Trousers look and feel like a regular pair of chino-style trousers. Relaxed, casual and classically styled, they’ll look the part in the pub; they’ll toe the line at work and they’ll cut the mustard on the golf course.
But, as you’d expect from Rohan, they’re packed with the sort of advanced fabric technology that you normally only find in technical trekking trousers.
It all starts with the waterproof, windproof and breathable Barricade™ lining. It’s light, soft, flexible and offers amazing breathability and comfort in a wide range of temperatures. The outer is a tough, textured polyamide with our Durable Water Repellency™ finish. It offers exactly the sort of performance you’d expect from our trekking trousers – it’s hardwearing, high wicking and incredibly quick drying.
Washing the trousers is simple – just throw them in the machine and hang them out. They’ll dry overnight – and they’ll still be waterproof. They require absolutely no special care whatsoever.
In terms of design, we’ve kept it classic. Our Dry Requisites are designed to blend in – not stand out. They feature two hand pockets and two zipped rear pockets. One of the hand pockets includes an internal, zipped security pocket; the other has a small accessory loop designed to secure your car keys or a penknife.
A Note on Pockets
The two front hand pockets of our Dry Requisites are lined with our Barricade™ waterproof material. This doesn’t mean, however, that the pockets are waterproof – there’s obviously two big holes where your hands go in! The zipped rear pockets have a small protective flap which offers a bit more protection – the zipped closure, however, isn’t waterproof. So, it’s not a good idea to store anything in the pockets, like a mobile phone or your winning lottery ticket, on a wet day. There’s a certain amount of protection – but the contents are definitely not going to stay dry all day long. The waterproof pocket liners on the hand pockets do mean, though, that any water coming in via the pockets isn’t going to get through to the tops of your legs – which is obviously the most important thing.
100% polyamide outer with 100% polyester waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology lining.

Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are Highly Wind Resistant.
Wet clothing transmits body heat nearly twenty-five times faster than dry. All clothing with this symbol is guaranteed to be totally waterproof. And highly breathable membrane technology means that you won’t get wet from inside either.
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.
Conventional waterproof fabrics cannot adapt to the changing weather outside and the changing micro-climate inside. Barricade™ is different, it is dynamic and responds to your body temperature and the humidity of the surrounding environment. The sweatier and steamier things get inside, the better the membrane works and the more vapour escapes.
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 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.

I have worn these trousers on two days recently when the rain has been extremely heavy and prolonged. They have kept me totally dry and made it a pleasure to be out in such testing conditions. Worn for both work and pleasure they fit into both environments. Can be a little bit hot if worn in warmer temperatures
I bought these to withstand heavier rain then my SprayWay water resistant trousers. I have had them about a year and they are fine in wind and misty rain but no protection at all on there first exposure to to heavy rain, which is disappointing. Having got thoroughly wet through to my legs and lining it took 24 hours to get them dry again. Fit and comfort are good, they are heavy - fine all year in Scotland but not for warmer climes.
Excellent trousers for cool or cold wet weather (but too heavy for summer). Hard wearing over several years, they remain comfortable and keep out driving rain on an all-day hillwalk; enough said.
More than happy with these trousers the fit and comfort are perfect and have been well and truly tested.
