A special day to remember the people of Nepal and how we can help them.
“we didn’t know if it was humanly possible to reach the top of Mt. Everest” – Sir Edmund Hillary
In 1978 Rohan, in recognition of the then 25th Anniversary of this fantastic achievement produced a very interesting garment the Rohan Everest 25. This was a limited edition garment only 500 were produced.
Each one sold with their very own certificate of authenticity and each jacket was individually numbered 1 to 500.
The Everest 25 had an outer of Ventile cotton and was lined with a wool pile. Read about the history of Ventile it’s interesting. The jacket, which was made in Blackburn, had pivot sleeves, four front pockets and a game bag rear pocket. The outer shell was very similar to the very first Rohan Pampas Jacket. The whole garment was treble sewn. Rohan was very proud of this garment. At the time it represented the best of the best with regard to fabric and zips. It also represented the best of the best with regard to eco credentials.
Do you have one, can we find one, are there any still in use?
It would be great if we found one with the original certificate.
A real collectors item!
