    Good afternoon everybody!

    Yet more new items arrived in store this morning, and this time it’s the ladies’ turn to be spoilt for choice: we’ve got a new colour in the Microgrid Zip (a lovely Raspberry) and Microgrid Jacket (an equally lovely Azalea), this year’s Sundown Top in Rose Wine and Sea Spray print, and the final Essence T colourway (Sea Coral).

    But don’t despair, men – we’ve got something for you too! This year’s Aura Shirt colours (Carbon, Moonlight Blue and Titanium Check) and the French Blue Zephyr Shirt arrived this morning, and they’re looking great!

    Come on down and try some on – we’ll see you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  5. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    It’s new item time again here at Rohan Leeds!

    In our delivery boxes this morning was…well, lots of linen! But not just any linen – Rohan linen. Which means it won’t crease and crumple anywhere near as much as regular linen.
    For the men, we’ve now got this year’s Maroc Jacket and Trousers in Dark Indigo and Desert, and if that wasn’t enough for you there’re even some shorts in the same fabric! We also have the last colours in the Element T – Parchment Stripe and Sea Spray Stripe. Spoilt for choice much?!

    For the ladies, the Tunis Capris in Desert arrived this morning, and although they aren’t linen, we also got another colour in the Pacer Capris – a lovely summery Saffron colour! We still have a few more ladies’ items yet to arrive – so watch this space.

    Interested? Come on down and try on!

    We’ll see you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  6. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    For all of you making a trip away this spring, a visit to us here at Rohan Leeds is a must!
    Why, I hear you asking? Well, what with baggage allowances seemingly getting ever stricter, isn’t it just sensible to make sure you pack as light as possible? And after all, lightweight and packable are just two of the things Rohan does best!

    So whether you’re trekking in the Himalayas or on safari in Africa, pop on in for some seriously technical gear – without all the weight that you’d think would go with it. The team, as always, is on hand for any questions you might have.

    Whatever you pack, make sure it’s packed with technology!

    We’ll see you all soon

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  7. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:


    Just to point out our Aura Jacket in the Men’s and Women’s new stock lines… So small and packable… a great emergancy, shower resistant Jacket and packs down to the size of a mobile!!

    Men’s Aura Jacket
    Weighing just 80g, our Aura Jacket is a phenomenally lightweight wind-resistant jacket offering minimalist protection in an incredibly compact, little package.

    come in to try on,

    Katie and the Leeds team

  8. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    If, like us here at Rohan Leeds, you’re still waiting for Spring to get its act together and bring us some warmer weather, don’t forget that we are still stocking some of our fleece ranges during this season. Our ever popular Microgrid Fleeces await your visit, along with the Kombi and Headland Jackets for men and the Coastline Top and Shivling Jacket for the ladies.

    And if fleece isn’t your thing, how about some Insuloft? With the Spark Top in the Men’s range and the Spark Vest in both Men’s and Ladies’, along with the Icepack Jacket and Vest for those super chilly days, you’re sure to find something to keep you warm until the sun sees fit to pay us a visit!

    As always, the team is on hand to offer any advice you might be after – so if you’re in Leeds today, why not pop down and give us a visit?

    See you all soon!

  9. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    Good Afternoon,
    We have recieved loads of great donations for Gift Your Gear. Looking through some of the things that have come in it is impressive how durable and long lasting many of the Rohan garments are, no names mentioned,,, cough* BAGS cough*. But also striking is the sheer variety of activities and locations people have used their garments, from the foot hills of the Himalayas or the Amazon basin, to sightseeing in York or taking a quiet stroll down the local tow path.
    To anyone still interested in making donations to Gift Your Gear, we would like to remind you that the last day is Monday 31st March, and we have loads of new items for the coming season, as well as plenty of old favourites, cough* BAGS cough*, for you to spend your 15% discount on!!

    Looking forward to seeing you,

    Team Leeds

  10. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:


    It’s a year ago, today, that the Trinity shopping mall opened in Leeds… if you haven’t come in town to see it yet? It’s a fresh sunny day in Leeds to have a snoop around and tag on a visit to us too!!

    Look forward to seeing you,

    Team Leeds

  11. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    A little sweet reminder that we just over half way through the month for Gift Your Gear! Lots of wonderful colours and new lines in stock now to tempt you with your 15% OFF discount when donating your old but usable gear to people who are in need.

    What better way to refresh your active wear?

    One of our lovely customers said “It’s like being in a sweetie shop.”

    Looking forward to helping you choose,

    Team Leeds :-)

  12. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    Just had a marching band make their way past the bottom of our street! And before that, we had some bagpipers! Couple that with the lovely sunny weather and it makes for one very cheery Leeds team :D

    If you’re in the area, why not drop into the city centre and see if you can catch the parades? And of course, no visit would be complete without popping by Rohan, right? Remember, Gift Your Gear is running until the end of this month, so don’t miss out on your chance to get 15% off your new purchases!

    See you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  13. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    Hiya guys!
    So it’s looking to be a stunning Sunday in Leeds today, anyone fancy yourself a bargain for the sunny sun?
    We’ve got our Bags/Tourers offer for all you lovely people out there who receive the catalogue, and of course, our wonderful 15% off when you Gift Your Gear. If you’ve got any old walking clothes and fancy yourself some of our new summer season clothing, bring them in and we’ll find you the perfect item to perk up your day!
    Hopefully see you soon,

  14. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    Our first few days of Gift Your Gear here at Rohan Leeds have gone swimmingly! We’re already well on our way to our first full box of donations from all our lovely customers.

    Not familiar with Gift Your Gear? Running for the fourth time this March, when you donate no longer loved outdoor gear (provided it’s still in good, usable condition, and not footwear, underwear, or sleeping bags) you receive a 15% discount on items bought in store that day.
    As for what happens to the items you bring in? They all go on to be used by charitable organisations involved with getting young people into the outdoors. So not only do you receive your 15% discount, you also have the satisfaction of knowing your items will continue to be used for their original purpose, and the warm fuzzy feeling of having done a good deed :)

    So get searching those wardrobes, and we’ll see you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  15. Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

    What a horrible grey morning this has been here in Leeds! Thankfully, the sight of all the lovely new items in today’s delivery box brightened us all up a bit…

    Full of new Leeway Shirts in French Blue and Sea Thistle (almost a mint green) and Thai Skirts in Black Rose and Limestone Marl for the ladies, and Equator Shirts in Thistle, Mariner Blue, and Mineral Green Check along with the final colour of the mens’ Fusion Trousers (the awaited Putty colour!), it was practically a bright rainbow compared to the gloomy sky outside!

    But probably one of the most interesting items in the box was the feather-light, windproof and water-resistant Aura Jacket in mens’ and ladies’ – weighing in at just 80g, they felt like they hardly weighed more than the plastic bags they came wrapped in! And what’s more, when they’re all packed down, they’re about the same size as the palm of your hand – compact or what?!

    As always, our lovely Rohan fans, don’t just take our word for it – pop on down and see us at Rohan Leeds and you can see the colours for yourselves, with the team on hand to answer any technical questions you might have.

    We’ll see you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

    Even though the weather outside is hardly at its best, our delivery boxes this morning at Rohan Leeds certainly were – full of our new Elite Jackets and Overtrousers, with an added helping of Cascade Jackets to boot!

    The Elite Jackets have two new colours, both in men’s and ladies’; Green Burst and Graphite with a contrasting blue zip for the men, and Amparo Blue and Graphite with a contrasting red zip for the ladies.

All the warmth of the previous vest style and then some!

    As always, the team is on hand for any questions you might have about our lovely new range – and remember, there’re still items left to come, so keep checking back in!

    Jo @ Leeds

    • Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

      Had a customer in today… Bought the wonderful Spark Top in the Graphite and Horizon Red for walking but loved the fact that it’s reversanble and can use it for when he Mountain Bikes reverse side out to be more visible in the Horizon Red!

      • Rohan Outdoor Leeds says:

        Well I think I will be getting one also as this will be great for on my bike, I know I’m a size 8 and the small is a bit too big but with a little roll up of the sleeves – job is a good’un, I also can’t wait till the Aura Jacket comes I’m getting one…
