The new Rohan Goa Tops have arrived!
Here at Rohan we’ve always loved overhead tops: they’re a purer, more effective solution to upper body wear than jackets. This love affair goes back to the original Moving On top in the early ‘80’s.
The Goa Top is the same concept updated with state-of-the-art technology and a clean, highly effective design.
Designed to be worn as a windshell or for warmth over base or warm layers the Men’s Goa Top is amazingly versatile: an essential component in your active travel system. In foul weather you can layer your waterproof shell over it.
The level of wind resistance is set very high, but not total. This is intentional: it allows unimpeded breathability, reducing the effects of windchill down to nearly zero but allowing greater comfort in hotter weather or when very active.
The fabric is equipped with our high specification Dynamic Moisture Control™ rather than water repellence. Again, this gives greater comfort and allows it to work better in hot and sweaty conditions. In showers or mixed weather the outer apparently wets quite quickly but any water is held on the very top surface of the fabric, where it spreads quickly and dries very fast – providing much better protection than it looks like it would.
The women’s has a fixed, roll-down hood. Both men’s and women’s have a useful, hands pocket and a cavernous, deep, chest pocket. This is the perfect place to stow maps and accessories, or documents and paraphernalia when travelling. The scale and position of this chest pocket is one of the reasons we love overhead tops so much.
A deep neck zip provides plenty of ventilation. The cuffs and hem adjust and the rear hem is dropped lower, which is perfect under a rucksack or when you’re on your bike.
So you can take a Goa Top with you on all your adventures the front pocket is also a Packpocket™.
