The Full Story+

The definitive lightweight summer stretch trousers, Escapers are ideal all year round, but excel in hotter climates.

Escapers are great general-purpose trousers. The tough, highly wind resistant, polyamide fabric features our high wicking Dynamic Moisture Control™. It’s durable yet lightweight, dries fast and packs down incredibly small. The low weight and low bulk construction improves comfort and breathability.

With a practical design and cut, they are ideally suited for active wear. The stretch fabric with articulation darts and specially shaped knees, allows full freedom of movement, for comfort in active use. Practical features include a zipped rear pocket, two front hand pockets, one with a handy tri-ring to secure keys, the other with a zipped security pocket.

 

Fabric: 94% polyamide, 6% elastane.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 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.

SUN PROTECTION UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognized international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

DYNAMIC MOISTURE CONTROL™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

2 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

My Escapers

★★★★★

In my view these are the best and most versatile trousers available or at present not available. More about this later.

I have purchased about 10 to 15 pairs over the years and have literally worn them everywhere and nearly every day. I wear them to work, church, international travel, bushwalking, mountain biking and even yoga. They are light and cool to wear most days in Sydney AUS summer and are fine for winter here also. They are stretchy enough to be worn at yoga and tough enough for outdoor use, as the polyamide fabric is super tough,

Some possible improvements maybe to use a higher tensile sewing thread, for top sewn seams. The other would be to offer some new colours. I liked the sage style green offered a few years ago.

My other concern is I can not see Escapers on the main store options. Does this mean they have been discontinued? I hope not as I want to order a couple of pairs in my Christmas order. Thanks you.

Magical Trousers

★★★★★

Probably the best all-round trousers Rohan have produced, the Escapers can be worn for many purposes, including mountain hiking and trekking, city sightseeing, and are fine for any restaurant or theatre visit.

Very lightweight at under 300g, these trousers are highly breathable and comfortable to wear – even in hot and humid climates such as South East Asia. The elastane in the material allows the trousers to stretch – very useful for physical activities where a bit of give is required.

Two zipped security pockets (one at the side, one at the rear) provide two great places to store valuables. Furthermore, there are two side hand pockets for other items. Plus there is a tri-ring to attach keys so they remain secure. A lot can be stored in all of these pockets!

After washing, these trousers dry in a couple of hours – ideal if you need them in a hurry. And there is literally no ironing required. Take them straight from your suitcase, rucksack or wardrobe and they look perfect – no creasing whatsoever.

Having had more than ten pairs of Escapers over many years, I can vouch for their longevity and durability. They never seem to age, and a seven or eight year old pair looks relatively fresh and new. Overall, they are magical trousers – no negative points about them.

Superb travel trousers

★★★★★

These are the most comfortable trousers I own. Extremely lightweight, they pack down really small and weigh very little. They are my go to trousers for long haul flights as te stretch fabric makes them supremely comfortable even when stuck in a plane for 12 hours.

When washed, they dry really quickly and need no ironing to look smart. Their light weigh also makes them perfect for hot climates. Recently returned from two months in Mexico and they performed exceptionally well.

If only the Escapers short were made to the same design!

THE most comfortable trousers I own

★★★★★

These are great for all sorts of travel but especially hotter climates. Very lightweight and the stretch makes them supremely comfortable. Ideal for long haul flights.

We travel a lot in places like South America where the inclusion of a zipped front pocket inside the main pocket is an essential security feature.

When washed, they dry in no time and are incredibly hard wearing for such a lightweight product.

Men' Escapers

Great lightweight trousers for spring/summer/autumn use. I have three pairs of these and they are extremely comfortable and look smart. I wear them all the tine.
