The Full Story +

If you're the owner of a pair of our famous Troggings trousers you'll know that after you bought some, you wondered how you ever managed without them. We believe you'll think exactly the same way about our new Troggings Vest.

It's made from the same tough, brushed back fabric as the trousers. It's water repellent and we've added micro fleece in the outer hand pockets for added comfort. We've also given it an adjustable hem and stretch tape at the arm apertures for unimpeded movement.

The result is a really neat and versatile garment which can be used in a multitude of situations – dog walking, trekking, camping, cycling, birdwatching, travelling, working... in fact just about any activity where you will be outdoors for any length of time.

Wear it as a smart, practical gilet which will keep your core warm on chilly autumn and early spring mornings or wear it with a waterproof outer layer and take full advantage of its insulating properties which will keep the cold at bay even in the depth of winter.

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.


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.

Minimum Layer ConstructionMinimum Layer Construction

By painstakingly stripping out unnecessary fabric and avoiding the common practice of double fabric panels we gain many advantages. The clothing is lighter and less bulky as well as quicker drying and more breathable. And because our fabrics are super tough, functionality can be improved by stripping away anything that doesn’t really need to be there.

Our Technologies
Dynamic Moisture ControlDynamic Moisture Control

Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.

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.

Elemental Protection
Cold - MidCold - Mid

We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 290.0gLightweight - Weight: 290.0g

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: 800.0mlPackable - Pack Size: 800.0ml

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: 3.0 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 3.0 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.
