The Full Story+

Our Dry Frontier Trousers might look like a regular pair of combat trousers, but behind the rugged exterior lies a pair of technical, high-wicking, quick drying performance trousers you can rely on in any adventure situation.

Beneath the durable water-repellent canvas outer, the Dry Frontier trousers carry a secret advantage; a fully waterproof, windproof and breathable Barricade™ lining that means you can turn a hill walk into a mountain trek, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be protected from the heaviest of heavy downpours.

Designed for regular walkers and committed trekkers, the Dry Frontier Trousers are packed with all the thoughtful design features you would come to expect in a pair of Rohan performance trousers. They've got elasticated waist panels and of course they're lightweight, windproof and machine washable. The fact they look great is simply an added bonus.

There are two secure welt covered leg pockets, two secure rear zipped pockets, plus two hand pockets which are designed to minimise water ingress. There is also an internal D-ring for keys or accessories.

If you're serious about your walking and happy to go out in any weather, consider pairing the Dry Frontiers with one of our waterproof shell jackets. So, when the Met Office issues one of its severe weather warnings, you’ll have an unbeatable ensemble that you can really depend on.

A Note on Pockets             

The two front hand pockets of our Dry Frontiers 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.


Our barricade™ waterproof technology achieves an initial Hydrostatic Head (waterproofness rating) of 20,000 and a Moisture Vapour Transmission rating for breathability of 20,000 g/m2/24h - a very balanced position.

A further Durable Water Repellency™ finish boosts water repellency of the fabric surface and maintains 80% of its effectiveness after twenty washes.

These are made from a separate, water-repellent outer fabric with a liner. The liner is a bonded waterproof-membrane with a lightweight protective scrim.

Washing Instructions
Caring for your Rohan Barricade™ waterproof will improve its performance and longevity. Simply machine wash your item at 30C with a gentle non-biological, liquid detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric conditioners, dryer sheets, stain removers or bleaching agents as these can impair the fabric performance. Garments may be drip dried. To rejuvenate the finish tumble dry your waterproof on the coolest setting, ensuring it is fully dry to complete the process.

Your Barricade™ waterproof has a Durable Water Repellency finish on the surface of the fabric. Over time, with wear and exposure to the environment, this can degrade, stopping water beading up on the surface of the jacket. Cleaning your waterproof will help maintain the finish. If necessary a re-proofing product, such as Rohan Proofer Wash In, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

Elemental Protection
Wind - Highly Wind ResistantWind - Highly Wind Resistant

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.

Rain - Totally WaterproofRain - Totally Waterproof

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.

Functional Features
Secure Pockets x2Secure Pockets x2

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.

Our Technologies

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.

Durable Water RepellencyDurable Water Repellency

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.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 525gLightweight - Weight: 525g

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: 1500mlPackable - Pack Size: 1500ml

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: 6 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 6 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.
