Stretchy, highly packable trousers designed for trekking and travel.Read more…
These new travel and walking trousers weigh in at just 255gm.
They're incredibly light and also amazingly comfortable thanks to the advanced Multiflex Light™ fabric which features four-way stretch offering comfort for active use. This makes them perfect for adventurous trekking and it also makes them pretty handy for jumping on 'planes and trains when keeping to a busy travel schedule.
Experienced travellers will appreciate the part-elasticated, adjustable waist band along with the two hand pockets. The zipped rear pocket will keep your wallet and tickets secure and also doubles as a Packpocket™ which means they'll take up hardly any space in your luggage.
We anticipate these trousers will be subjected to some pretty rigorous use and so we've reinforced the hem and fitted anti-scuff tape.
Multiflex Light™ (86% polyamide, 14% elastane).
Pack Size: 550ml
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.
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.
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.
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.

Extremely comfortable, I used extensively during a trip across Europe. Almost crease free. While I didn’t need the extra pockets that other lines have I did feel exposed in not having that useful little zipper pocket some have in one of the front pockets. My only other beef is with Rohan: of late one to two weeks after I pay full price on shirts and trousers, there’s an offer on. So now I won’t be buying this brand outside of the many offers that come through.
We have been buying Rohan clothes for many years. The quality is always good and we have found that the garment does what it says in its description. However, the design of the Men’s Gobi Trousers lets them down.
One great advantage of Rohan trousers is that there are plenty of pockets to put things in. Men don’t like carrying bags. Some are secured with a zip and others hidden. The net material of the pocket lining, of the Gobi trousers, shows as soon as anything is put into them. In addition, anything sharp like keys, gets caught in the netting.
My husband recently broke his wrist and we bought two pairs of Gobi Trousers because their fully elasticated waistband made it so easy for him to dress himself. They wash beautifully and dry very quickly. The trousers are a great fit and look very smart until the narrow band of lining shows. The material is so light perhaps future Gobi Trousers could be lined with the same material.
In my view these are basically the replacement for the GOA range - very light summer trousers. The draw cord is on the inside (which is better than the Amblers and Troggings). They are light, stretch and are exceedingly comfortable. The scuff tape is a new added benefit. They are just excellent!
Brilliant pair of trousers, smart and comfortable
