Light and compact – think of it as your travel insurance against cold weather.
We've all been there – you've been walking for what seems like hours and have finally found somewhere to stop, take a rest and enjoy the view. Just as you're getting comfortable and your feet have stopped complaining you feel a chill on your back and know it's time to get moving again before you lose valuable body temperature.
In extreme circumstances this chill can bring on the initial stages of hypothermia, every hill walkers nightmare. This is when the Microlite Jacket really comes into its own. Its ultra-low weight makes it light and compact enough to stuff into a rucksack and when you start to feel the onset of a chill you can throw it on under your waterproof and really feel the benefit of its down insulation.
We've made it using 80% down and 20% feather with a total fill weight of just 105 grams which means you'll hardly notice it in your back pack, it's got two secure outer pockets, one of which converts into a Packpocket™ for stowage and the fabric incorporates a Durable Water Repellent ™ finish just in case you get caught in a shower. The hidden internal elasticated cuffs and adjustable hem will ensure you'll retain as much heat as possible when you stop to enjoy the view and take a few pics. For a little bit of added style we've tailored the jacket with flattering graduated baffles to give it a svelte, streamlined appearance.
It's so light and packs down to such a small package there's no excuse to leave it at home and remember, it could be a lifesaver.

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.
Our down fill offers an extremely high fill power of 650+ (measured to the European standards) for efficient insulation and good long-term durability.
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.
