Dry liner Barricade™ - Great looking retro-style cagoule brought bang up to date with modern technology and Rohan know-how.
Loved by mountaineers, explorers and fishermen for well over a century, the smock cagoule is an old favourite with those who spend their lives outdoors.
We thought we'd give the old idea a new twist – what if we take this beautifully simply retro concept and subtly update it using a modern fabric and some clever design tweaks?
Our designers stayed faithful to the brief and created the Hideout Jacket, a classic looking jacket from a bygone era which performs as well as the very best modern outdoor equipment.
The understated colour may hark back to the duck-cloth smocks of yesteryear but our Barricade™ waterproof membrane technology with its light weight and superb breathability projects this jacket firmly into the 21st century.
Remember how you had to wriggle out of your old style Cagoule after a walk? We've solved that little problem by fitting a neatly hidden side zip - this means you won't keep the entire pub amused with an impression of an escapologist in a straitjacket when all you're trying to do is remove your waterproofs.
Mind you, there is a touch of Harry Houdini about the Hideout Jacket... Even though its comprehensive specification includes a side zip, front pouch pocket, two zipped security pockets and adjustable hem and cuffs, it still packs down small enough to fit into your rucksack when the sun comes out. At Rohan we think that's a clever disappearing trick.
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.
Creates a casual looking, comfortable garment for changeable weather conditions. The waterproof liner is hidden.
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 Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.

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.
Good design is more often about what to take off than what to put on. And clever design is about giving one feature two functions, that’s why many Rohan garments feature an internal mesh stretch pocket that doubles as a Packpocket™ for easy storage.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
