We are extremely proud to have won Best In Test in Trail magazine’s prestigious round up of all that’s available out there in waterproofs. The guys at Trail know what’s what and we are delighted that they agree with us that the Elite is really something special.
We know that with the Elite Jacket we have a ground-breaking fabric – that weighs phenomenally little, yet out-performs so many others – combined with a sensible, stripped down but full-featured design. And we didn’t save weight by making the jacket shorter and tighter either!
We genuinely think these are the best, high performance, super-lightweight waterproofs on the market.
But like with so many really valuable things in life sometimes you just have to wait a bit for them.

In November 2010, Graham Thompson, Trail’s well-respected technical editor, thoroughly tested a wide range of lightweight waterproof jackets. Our Elite Jacket beat off some pretty stiff competition to be awarded the Trail Best in Test accolade – Read the full Rohan Elite Jacket review.
