This jacket might look relaxed and casual but it’s made with the same technology found in our premium hill walking clothing.
At Rohan we've been making waterproofs for over forty years and something we've learned from all these years of valuable experience is rain is just as wet on Fulham High Street as it is on Flamborough Head. It therefore follows when choosing a waterproof you need to look carefully at the fabric technology employed and make sure it's up to the job, even if the intended use is simply for a quick trip into town or a stroll in the park with the dog.
Our Cloudcover Overhead lightweight waterproof looks great - but the 2.5 layer Barricade™ fabric uses the same uncompromising technology found in our premium hillwalking waterproofs. It features fully taped seams with a dropped rear hem to keep your derrière dry. The fixed hood has a bonded peak which can be adjusted, as can the hem and the cuffs. It also comes with two pockets, one of which converts neatly into a Packpocket™. The cuffs and face aperture are also adjustable to provide maximum wet weather performance.
We're proud to say we devote this attention to detail when creating all our products regardless of whether they are aimed at the everyday wearer or the serious outdoor adventurer.
At Rohan we never sacrifice function for form and this means even when you choose something as stylish as the Cloudcover Overhead, you can be assured it will keep you dry whatever the weather
Our barricade™ waterproof technology achieves an initial Hydrostatic Head (waterproofness rating) of 20,000 and a Moisture Vapour Transmission rating for breathability of 20,000 g/m2/24h - a very balanced position.
A further Durable Water Repellency™ finish boosts water repellency of the fabric surface and maintains 80% of its effectiveness after twenty washes.
A perfect fabric for an all-round leisure jacket or one for gentle low level walking.
The water repellent face fabric and the waterproof-breathable membrane are bonded together. A partial print is applied to the inside face of the fabric to protect the waterproof membrane.

Washing InstructionsCaring for your Rohan Barricade™ waterproof will improve its performance and longevity. Simply machine wash your item at 30C with a gentle non-biological, liquid detergent. We recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Don’t use fabric conditioners, dryer sheets, stain removers or bleaching agents as these can impair the fabric performance. Garments may be drip dried. To rejuvenate the finish tumble dry your waterproof on the coolest setting, ensuring it is fully dry to complete the process.
Your Barricade™ waterproof has a Durable Water Repellency finish on the surface of the fabric. Over time, with wear and exposure to the environment, this can degrade, stopping water beading up on the surface of the jacket. Cleaning your waterproof will help maintain the finish. If necessary a re-proofing product, such as Grangers Clothing Wash + Repel, may be used to restore the DWR. This can be used in your wash cycle and is activated by a cool tumble dry.
Fabric: 100% polyester with waterproof Barricade™ membrane technology.
Pack Size: 650ml

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.
Conventional waterproof fabrics cannot adapt to the changing weather outside and the changing micro-climate inside. Barricade™ is different, it is dynamic and responds to your body temperature and the humidity of the surrounding environment. The sweatier and steamier things get inside, the better the membrane works and the more vapour escapes.
Our durable water resistant finish, which forces water droplets to ‘bead up’ and run off the outside of the jacket, is designed to remain at 80% efficiency – even after 20 washes.
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.
