A traditional favourite brought right up to date. Lightweight, functional and good looking.
Our Chore Jacket takes its style cues from the traditional work jacket which was a familiar part of working life not so many years ago.
Worn in the work place by trades as diverse as engineers, carpenters, warehousemen and even artists and sculptors this simple, unstructured design is still relevant for modern working life.
The downside of most chore jackets is that at the end of a long day they can look like you've spent most of it, well, doing chores. Not so with the Rohan version.
We've brought our interpretation of the chore jacket into the modern age and made it from an easy-care fabric which has a small amount of stretch built in. It's a feature you'll appreciate if you frequently find yourself climbing on and off public transport or boarding aeroplanes. It also means you can return home at the end of a working day without looking as if you've just completed a shift in a woodmill.
The Chore jacket has three traditional patch pockets, a four button design plus functioning cuff buttons and an internal patch pocket.
Fabric: 95% polyamide, 5% elastane.
Pack Size: 1,600ml
Drying Time: 6 hours
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.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
