Gift Your Gear – Rohan Ambleside

Rohantime has received some lovely stories about early Rohan Mountaineering garments over the years. These stories are all very special. This story is about the Super Salopette, the garment that started it all. These stories are an important part of Rohan Heritage.

All the stores have a common thread, enjoyment and appreciation of the mountains all over the world.

This great Gift Your Gear story from Rohan Ambleside is no exception…

Mike Thornton from Durham kindly donated his Super Salopettes to Gift Your Gear. Mike purchased the Salopettes in Rohan Long Preston in 1985. They’ve gone up Mont Blanc and ski trips from Chamonix to Zermatt.

Thank you Mike & Nina Rohan Ambleside

  1. My Soops are the final full-leg version without the gaiters, I’d gave bought them in the early 90s and used them extensively for winter mountaineering and ski touring. They’ve been replaced for those by some lighter MEC Powershield sloppets, but the Rohans are still my Weapon of Choice for piste skiing, so Gift Your Gear won’t be getting them yet!
