A blend of natural cotton and technical Coolmax® polyester, Jeans are a fast-drying, lightweight, comfortable and practical alternative to regular denim jeans.Read more…
No one’s 100% sure who invented jeans. But one thing’s for certain. They never set out to make anything ‘cool’.
They were made out of tent fabric and designed to do one thing: work.
Over the years, though, they’ve become rather popular. And, as it happens, they’ve turned out to be kind of cool too. Worn by just about everyone, they look great – pretty much anywhere.
When Rohan set out to make jeans, we knew we had to make them better. The question was: how do you improve the ‘unimprovable’?
The answer, though, was fairly simple: innovative fabric technology.
Regular denim jeans look great. But they’re heavy, uncomfortable, too hot for travel and take an age to dry after washing. Rohan Jeans, by contrast, are made from Denim Plus™, a sophisticated fusion of cotton and advanced modern synthetics.
The results are remarkable. Because around a third of the fabric is CoolMax® polyester, they’re much faster drying than regular jeans – in practical terms, they dry overnight. So you can travel with only one pair. Which is quite an advantage.
They also offer a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
And, unless you’re an absolute stickler, they don’t really require any ironing – although you’ll find the lightest, briefest touch from a warm iron will create an effortlessly smart appearance.
Designed to sit just below the natural waist, our jeans our designed in a classic style – with a couple of practical Rohan twists.
They feature two hand pockets and two rear patch pockets with a discrete zipped pocket in the rear yoke.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments which meet the required standard are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection 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.
Denim Plus™ (66% cotton, 34% Coolmax® polyester).
Pack Size: 1,700ml
Drying Time: 10 hours
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
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.
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.

Sadly these jeans are not straight leg but skinny drainpipes. So I am returning
Great jeans and fit really well.
They are quite snug around the ankle but this works for me.
They would score a 5 except that they do lose the colour quickly and especially if you wipe something off the material, having said that I have successfully dyed a pair and they look great.
I always wear straight legged jeans, but these had tapered legs. Was very disappointed to have to return them.
I've had several pairs of Rohan jeans and always found them to be a good fit, extremely comfortable and easy to wear - these are no different. They're also a very lightweight denim and therefore dry quickly.
The only minor "niggle" I have is the length. I bought the short length - but they are anything but short ! Measuring just less than 30" which in my view is too long and seems a waste of material on Rohan's part.
I'm sure that I can't be the only lady who has to shorten them !!
