Local Knowledge – The city holds a number of local and national museums and galleries. Leeds is the home the Royal Armouries   and Henry Moore Institute . Both attractions are free to enter and are open all year round. The new Trinity shopping centre opened in March 2013.

  1. Ding ding ding! Gift Your Gear has officially finished here at Rohan Leeds for another season – thank you very much to all of our fantastic customers who donated their unwanted outdoor clothing to Gift Your Gear. Keep watching Rohantime to find out where the gear’s going.

    That said, it’s all change down here at Rohan Leeds as we install our new window – this time singing the praises of our new extra fine Merino wool fully fashioned knitwear!

    This lovely fabric comes in a V neck jumper in the men’s range, available in Seaport and Deep Plum, and a longline cardi in the women’s range, available in Indigo and Natural Marl. It’s fantastically soft, super comfy, and very lightweight. And don’t worry – similarly to the rest of our garments, it needs no fancy care, and it’s crease resistant so there’s no need to iron it.

    Come on down and try them on!

    The shop will soon be moving premises to 10 – 12 Thornton’s Arcade.
    This is the end of an era, and a start to a new one.
    Why not pop by and give a found fair well to old store ready for the grand reopening of the new one.

  3. We just want to thank all of our lovely generous customers so far for all your Gift Your Gear Donations. We have seen some Rohan classics being donated such as a pair of Serac trousers! Apparently too warm to ski in!

    Don’t worry if you haven’t had a chance to come down yet, Gift Your Gear will be running until the end of this month, so you’ve still got plenty of time.

    In preparation for winter, we have also had a new arrival! The Men’s Winter Stronghold trousers are a cold weather version of our ready-for-anything Stronghold trouser. A timeless chino style with performance benefits you’d expect from a technical walking trouser. Including a thermal, insulated lining for protection against the elements.

    One final note, the Leeds store will be moving! Don’t worry we are not moving very far, we are off to the Thornton’s Arcade. The new store opens on 2nd November 2015.

    Make sure to call in store for more details and we hope to see you soon!

  4. Gift Your Gear is well and truly under way here at Rohan Leeds – and we’ve had some fantastic donations already!

    Thank you to all of our lovely generous customers so far, and if you haven’t come down yet, Gift Your Gear will be running until the end of this month, so you’ve still got plenty of time.

    How will you use your 15% off? Perhaps a new warm layer, for the colder days ahead? We’ve got you covered – the Sentinel and Homestead shirts are made from a hollow-core thermal fabric, and offer lovely snuggly warmth for a fraction of the weight of a brushed cotton or flannel shirt!
    Or perhaps you’re not looking forward to the wetter weather? Once more, we’ve got your back – the Guardian Jacket is a fantastically good-looking, lightweight jacket that’s durable enough for mountain performance and smart enough for urban use.

    Come on down and have a look!

    We’ll see you all soon!

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  5. It’s that time of year again! The award-winning nationwide initiative Gift Your Gear has begun and will continue throughout the whole of September. Please bring all your unwanted outdoor clothing to any Rohan shop and in return you will receive 15% OFF a full priced purchase.

    As well as this, you will be giving your unwanted outdoor clothing a new lease of life, as all donated clothing is provided to over 300 UK youth and community groups working with young people in the outdoors.

    We hope to see you soon!

  6. As we approach the Bank Holiday weekend, remember it’s your last chance to spend the vouchers in our current voucher booklet here at Rohan Leeds!

    We’re open from 9:30-5:30 on Saturday and 11-4 on Sunday as normal, but don’t let the reduced hours on the Bank Holiday Monday catch you out – it’s Sunday opening times, meaning we’re open 11-4 again.

    We’ll see you all soon!

  7. The new Outpost Jacket has landed in both the women’s and the men’s range. This Jacket offers all of the benefits of our regular Barricade waterproofs, but with an extra Insuloft feature for added warmth and protection for the cooler months ahead.

    Fear not, the added insulation does not make this item as bulky as a traditional Parka style coat; it still packs down very well making this a must have for any winter activities you have planned.

  8. The new Carbon Marl Envoy Suit has arrived and already flying out the door.
    A garment that offers style and practicality along with being machine washable, no wonder it a big hit.

  9. As the weather turns worse (and regular days like Friday are looming on the horizon – nothing but lashing rain all day!) it only makes sense to be protected from the elements.

    So it’s a good thing that here at Rohan Leeds we’ve just taken delivery of the new Guardian Jacket in the Men’s and Women’s ranges! Sturdier than the Elite but lighter than the Pinnacle, it comes in two colours in the Men’s range – Arctic Blue and Black – and one colour, Night Shadow, in the Women’s.

    They’re £245, so a little more expensive than the Elite – but for the amount of protection they offer it’s a fantastic price.

    Come on down to Rohan Leeds and try one on.

    We’ll see you all soon!

  16. Whatever the reason for a trip it’s all too easy to take too much stuff. However here at Rohan we believe you can travel the world with just your hand luggage! We have clothes that will keep you dry, clothes that will keep you cool and clothes that will keep you comfortable.

    Good base layers are the foundation of a functional travel outfit and the key to comfort in the outdoors. So, wherever in the world you’re heading and whatever you’re planning to do when you get there, start your kit list with one thing: functional, technical base layers.

    In the Women’s we have the Essence T and the Men’s we have the Element T. Both are designed in a relaxed, everyday style, and are made from a synthetic fabric that feels like cotton and won’t crease. Perfect to help streamline your luggage.,

    Come into store today to see all that we offer!

  17. We believe that just because a shirt, jacket or a pair of trousers is destined to live in town, there is no good reason why it shouldn’t share all the benefits of outdoor performance clothing. Classic style combined with technical performance is at the very heart of Rohan.

    If you are looking for a timeless, classic style trouser, the Men’s Grand Tour Chinos could be for you.They’re made from a woven polyamide which is luxuriously soft and makes them wonderfully comfortable to wear. They are not without their technical benefits either, highly wind resistant and lightweight.
    In the Women’s range we have the Verona Jacket a lightweight lapelled blazer. It gives you unrestricted freedom of movement, in a breathable performance fabric for improved comfort.

    We would love to show you more, so come in to see for yourself.

  18. It’s done! The Leeds Race For Life has been run, and I can announce my final time… 48 minutes for the 5K route! Not a patch on the first finisher’s time (26 minutes!) but not bad for the first proper run I’ve done!

    The weather was a little too warm to wear my trusty Amblers, sadly – though I decided eventually on the good old Essence T in Raspberry to match the thousands of other pink-clad runners!

    (Warning! Self-promotion ahead!) There’s still time to donate if you haven’t already, and every penny counts. My JustGiving page is at, or if you’re in Leeds there are some sponsor forms to fill in if you’d rather do it that way.

    Thank you to everybody for all your support – it was certainly appreciated (and at points in the run, very much needed!)

    Jo @ Rohan Leeds

  19. The best of luck, Jo Have a great run. Katie

  20. Any wear, Everywhere!
    Just because life can be unpredictable and complicated at times, it doesn’t mean your clothes need to be. Here we have clothing that you can wear all of time, whether on adventures or times that demand less effort.

    Men’s Goas trousers and Equator shirt are ultra-lightweight and offer excellent protection from the sun. Sun protection isn’t just in the men’s it is also in the women’s. The Tangier trousers and Stria polo are both sun protective .

    All the items mentioned are a lot cleverer than they look with dynamic moisture control that keeps you cool no matter how hard you are working.

    We would love to show you more, so come in to see for yourself.
