The Full Story+

The Malay Jacket is made using our clever Performance Linen™ fabric – a combination of natural linen fibres and durable polyester that makes it both soft and crease resistant, and perfect for hot-weather travel.

The blend of technical fibres with high quality linen means we can offer a good-looking jacket which combines the style of linen with technical practicality. Unlike normal linen, our Performance Linen™  won’t shrink, fade or lose its shape, and it’s more crease resistant too so little to no ironing is required.

The clever construction of the Malay Jacket ensures reduced weight and bulk with maximum comfort and breathability. It also packs down nice and small too, so it’s great for taking with you on holiday.

The jacket has two external patch pockets, with one featuring a discreetly concealed zipped security pocket to safely store small essentials like cash or a credit card.

For the busy traveller whose itinerary doesn't include laundry duties, this versatile piece is ideal for taking you from day to night – match with jeans for a cool-causal look, or team with a smarter pair of trousers or over the top of a dress for a great work or dinner outfit.

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.

Our Technologies

Staying cool in the heat is actually more challenging than keeping warm in the cold. The most effective fabric technology is to use open weave structures that disperse heat through convective cooling.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 370.0000gLightweight - Weight: 370.0000g

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: 800.0000mlPackable - Pack Size: 800.0000ml

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: 6.0000 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 6.0000 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.

Useful, if expensive, jacket


I bought the grey strip version of this jacket to replace my much loved and well travelled existing Rohan linen jacket. On the whole it’s a very nice jacket and I will get a lot of wear from it, but £110 is a lot of money for an unlined jacket. I’d suggest waiting for the sales! My main gripe, apart from the price, is the ‘shawl shape’ collar which is a nuisance. It doesn’t stay folded over and the facing keeps catching. I’ve ended up wunda webbing them in place which isn’t ideal. I much preferred the neat, notched suit style collar of the previous version.
