The first-choice trousers for British walkers.Read more…
We believe our Roamers are the most comfortable and functional walking trousers around. And lots of our most active customers seem to agree. They’re our best-selling women’s trousers - by a country mile.
And it’s no surprise.
They’re made from a sophisticated blend of polyamide and stretchy elastane so, naturally, they’re tough, wind resistant and durable. But they’re also light, highly breathable and supremely comfortable.
They’ve got a nice, understated appearance too - they don’t look too ‘technical’. So, whilst they’ll go the distance on the toughest treks they don’t look or feel out of place when you’re bobbing around town or enjoying a meal in a posh country pub.
They feature two hand pockets and two security pockets - one hidden inside the right-hand pocket and one in the right leg seam. They’re not large but they’re perfect for keeping small valuables and travel documents safe, secure and close at hand.
Roamers are a great mild-weather, versatile choice - if you’re walking in Britain from spring through to autumn, you’d be hard pressed to find a better choice.
And, if you’re wearing them in the high Summer, you’ll be pleased to know that the fabric offers a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation. Not absolutely essential in the UK but very nice to know if you’re planning a walking trip to Mallorca, Corsica or Morocco.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments which carry our sun protection icon, have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. As a guide to the level of protection offered to covered areas, garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet; the reduction of associated health risks will vary with other factors such as skin type or individual medical history.
Multiflex Light™ 94% polyamide, 6% elastane.
Pack Size: 500ml
Drying Time: 3 hours
Cutting down windchill can make more difference to your comfort and safety than the amount of insulation you are wearing. Garments that carry this icon are Highly Wind Resistant.
Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Comfort strategies are limited. We choose the right weight of fabrics, employ Airflow™ weaves and use Dynamic Moisture Control™ technology.
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.
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.
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.

I have 3 pairs of Roamers and a waterproof pair. They’re very comfortable to wear as have good stretch in the fabric. I live in rural Wales and wear them for dog walking, camping, going into town and worldwide travel. They wash well and dry quickly.
I like the small, zipped leg pocket for a credit card & a key.
On the design front I’d like a decent size back pocket for my phone as it’s not so comfortable in the front pocket banging against my upper thigh. I’ve also snagged 2 pairs on brambles :( Otherwise, I love them!
I have had two pairs of these trousers which I use for worldwide travel birdwatching in mountains and forests. I need the pockets as I do not carry a handbag except for church once a week at home and shopping once a week! Even walking the dog I just carry my driving licence hidden in a concealed pocket and out for a day I carry only a driving licence , one credit card and maybe a 10 Euro note..everything else is in a small rucksack but I like valuables to be hidden esp if on a beach and going for a swim...
Yey.. you really can't go wrong with these trousers. No 1, they are just so comfortable, good to go in pretty much any weather scenario, they fit on the waist, quick drying, go with all the other Rohan stuff ( I know its sad, but I like colour coordinated), they are my 'go to' trousers for a windy walk along the coast or a Sunday stroll through the forest. Love them...only minor quibble, there are only so many pockets you need..would rather have 'clean lines' rather than 'hidden pockets' that are never used...most gals I know, still have a bag......
In the last month I have purchased 3 pairs of these trousers and have worn & washed them constantly since I got them. I will probably buy several other pairs in different colours. They have been worn for general use & with a Tian shirt have gone out to dinner too. I would say that at 5ft 1 ins I have had 3 inches taken off the legs. Have only given them 4* since I had to have them shortened otherwise they would have been 5*.
