Last January we published this story on Rohantime….
In 1978 Nigel became Rohan’s 1st First Mountaineering Consultant and took an electric blue Windlord jacket to Alaska in 1978. He also tried out the Salopettes in the Himalayas and winter climbing in the Alps giving us feedback on comfort and practical design features.
One year after we published Nigel’s story we have an update…
Last time I was in Rohan Keswick Ben gave me a copy of Climber & Rambler Magazine dated April 1980. The magazine contains a Rohan ad. very topical of Rohan at the time.
Guess what that’s Nigel in the Rohan Pampas

Stories just like this one are so valuable, not only because they record the heritage of the company. They are stories about the people. Endeavour, hope and aspiration.
Memories we love them.
