Rohan Kit Exceeding Expectations

As a long time fan and customer of Rohan I thought I’d email to say how pleased I was with my Rohan clothing during my recent successful completion of the 2017 ‘Great Outdoors Challenge’.

TGOC is a Scottish coast to coast trek

TGOC is a Scottish coast to coast trek (designed to be largely self supporting) and must be completed within 14 days. ‘Challengers’ (limited to 300 each year) select one from a number of designated start points on the west coast of Scotland and then plan their own route to the east coast. The route is submitted for approval to vetters at the Great Outdoors Magazine, which organises the event. My route started in Oban and ended in Aberdeen and involved trekking 304 kms in 13 days. It is an arduous trek over some wild country: reliable, high performing kit is essential.

My clothing, almost exclusively from Rohan, was as follows:

Walking Gear

Base Layer: ultra silver boxers and element T
Mid Layer: core silver zip
Trousers: Trailblazers / Escapers
Waterproof: Elite Jacket

Camp/warm gear

Ambler Trousers
Merino base layer
Icepack Jacket

Return Home Clothing (sent to finish point in advance)

Rohan Bags
Equator shirt
Gridlock zip

I’m a 60-something regular hill walker and had high expectations of my Rohan kit. I’m very happy to report that every item matched or exceeded those expectations.

All the best – and thanks again for providing great clothing and equipment.
