Rohan Harrogate Team

Manager Linda has worked in the retail sector from she was 15 years old, but worked in the outdoors sector for over 15 years, grew up in a small farm environment, was always bringing home animals that were injured or lost, nursing them back to health and finding homes for them, loves being outdoors no matter what the weather is like, passionate for mountain biking and photography, always busy doing something from power-kiting to making polymer clay jewellery, watching marvel movies, very much into her technology, with bags of passion and knowledge of Rohan clothing.

Deputy Manager Josh is a real outdoorsman, having worked in the Outdoor Education industry for a number of years as both an Outdoor Instructor and as a Bushcraft/Survival Instructor working with children. Previously he travelled the world extensively and spent some time living in Barcelona. All this gives him a great deal of knowledge about the world outside the front door.

Liz has been with Rohan for over three years and has plenty of knowledge of our products to share. She enjoys creating mannequins to display our eye catching outfits. Living in Pateley Bridge in beautiful Nidderdale gives her lots of opportunities to test our gear as the weather gets pretty wild! Liz enjoys pilates, spending time with her family and exploring the countryside with her two crazy terriers, Sally and Patch.

Anthi is our newest team member. When she is not in store she is studying full time at Harrogate Grammar School. She has a wide variety of hobbies, which include dancing, yoga and caring for Alan & Steve her two leopard geckos.

Chris has recently graduated with a degree in philosophy from the University of St Andrews and is delighted to be back in his hometown here in sunny Yorkshire. Having travelled the world from a young age and is always regaling customers with tales of his years abroad. He finds a way to go snowboarding every year, having carved up the pistes from the French Alps to Squaw Valley, California and is currently planning a trip to Germany. When he’s not out exploring someplace new, you’ll find him down the local rehearsal studio playing guitar with his rock band or in a coffee shop with his nose in a book.

Amy has recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh where she studied architectural history. She is also a talented musician and has performed all over Europe with different jazz orchestras. She is really enjoying her time at Rohan Harrogate and is getting to know all about the exciting kit. She is a great baker and often treats her colleagues to some delicious brownies! Amy loves to keep fit and has recently completed the Total Warrior Challenge in aid of The Dog’s Trust.

Charys is 17 years old and has recently joined the Rohan Harrogate team. She is in year 13 and is studying Philosophy and Ethics, Ancient History and Politics and Government. She likes cats and martial arts films and hopes to take a year out after her studies to take a gap year and travel. She also has a background in vintage fashion and loves hunting for bargains.

Stephen is a qualified graphic and exhibition designer. He is also currently studying on the Postgraduate Diploma in Teacher Training at Bradford College. His hobbies include sailing, archery, cycling and reading history (he has over 230 history book at home!)

Directions to our shop: The Harrogate train runs between York and Leeds with services every hour. Bus services run frequently from local townships and cities as well. Ripon, Skipton, Northallerton and The Dales are not too far away, so whether you are visiting Harrogate or coming through specifically to see what we have in our shop, it’s easy to get to.

Our store was opened in 2005 and is a converted three storey Victorian town house, directly opposite the train station and next door to the Victoria shopping centre. It is constructed from local Yorkshire stone and has a wonderful wrought iron canopy. The front of the building retains period iron framed windows and the overall effect is of a building that has retained its original charm.

We have a rolling exhibition of local photographers’ work around the shop including some very nice local shots by Robert Swindells and a selection of travel photographs by Sam Oakes.

The Nearest Parking – Victoria Multi Storey Car Park which is linked to the Victoria Shopping Centre by a bridge.

Local Knowledge – Harrogate is one of Yorkshire’s most beautiful towns to visit. Often people combine their visit to Rohan with a relaxing spa session in the Royal Baths or a trip to RHS Harlow Carr which is only a 45 minute walk from the store through the beautiful valley gardens.

No visit to Harrogate is complete without a visit to Bettys Tea Rooms where you can enjoy a cup of tea in very smart surroundings with a nice fat rascal (it’s a cake).

We are also home to the Harrogate International Centre which hosts some of the biggest events in the country and was the home of many a story from the early years of Rohan. It makes a great day out for any holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

    Hi all, guess what has just arrived today, we have been waiting for this nice new jacket called the Tundra, colours available for men are the Fjord blue and Moorland, In the ladies Tundra Jacket colour option is the Norse Blue. I think everyone will want one for the cold weather, or a trip to Iceland, Our Tundra Jacket is the warmest jacket in our range.

    It’s perfect for adventurous winter travel, cold-weather camping and everyday wear around town in winter.

    It’s filled with a blend of 80% down and 20% feathers with a Fill Power of 650+.

    Needless to say, when you’re wearing it, it’s pretty cosy.

    But, because of the incredible compressibility of natural down, when you’re not wearing it, it’s just as useful. It packs down into its own Packpocket™ to form a surprisingly compact package. If you’re travelling somewhere cold and need something that’s not going to use up half your luggage allowance, our Tundra Jacket is the perfect choice.

    And the shell fabric is just as special as the filling – it’s a 100% polyamide with a Durable Water Repellency™ finish. So it’s tough, highly wind resistant and offers a certain amount of water protection to the precious down filling. It won’t keep you dry in a downpour – but it’ll shed snow and shrug off light showers. What’s different, though, is the fabric’s appearance. We’ve specified a really good-looking matt-finish polyamide which looks and feels just like cotton – it’s much more understated than the usual “just about to set off up the Eiger Nordwand” appearance of most specialist down jackets. Which is a real bonus if you’re heading to Prague or Reykjavik for a winter city break.

    It features a fixed, insulated hood which adjusts with a single pull for excellent fit and unimpeded vision.

    Our Tundra Jacket features two big, warm patch pockets at the front and adjustable draw-cords at the hem to seal in the warmth.

    So what are you waiting for, come in to check out the range and have a try and chat with us.

    Picture the conventional parka jacket. The timelessness, the practicality and the definitive faux fur hood. Since the founding days of Rohan, we have always strived to offer you functionality and practicality. Although many would class the fur hood as the pinnacle of the parka jacket, Rohan have decided to turn it on its head; you won’t find any faux fur on our parka. Fur hoods may be perfect for places like the Arctic and Antarctica – some of the driest climates on earth – but the practicality of the fur isn’t fantastic for the unpredictability of Yorkshire’s micro-climate.

    We are proud to present the Outpost Jacket – Rohan’s innovative answer to the parka. Instead of using faux fur around the hood, Rohan have incorporated Insuloft technology into the hood to help keep your face warm and unlike faux fur, Insuloft won’t get matted and unsightly when wet.

    The Outpost Jacket is made with rip-stop, totally waterproof and breathable performance fabric, as well as offering full thermal cold weather protection. Two classic colours are available in our jacket and it can be worn in conjunction with our Carrig Zip Jumper. Our Outpost Jacket also comes in ladies’ design.

    Feel free to visit any Rohan store and the team will be more than happy to show you our new season clothing and accessories which will set you up for everyday adventures.

    ‘Cyclin’ in the rain.’

    I’m particularly impressed by Rohan’s men’s jeans. They’re much easier to care for than regular denim jeans and they feel great on. A couple of weeks ago I could have done with a pair.

    I was a nice sunny day so I decided to go for a quick cycle ride to Ripley. I was wearing my denim jeans – I almost always wear jeans. (I know cycling purists will say you shouldn’t wear jeans for cycling but that’s just me). Just as I got as far away as possible from home the sky darkened and the rain came down like stair rods. Within a few moments I was absolutely soaked; my jeans were completely saturated and felt like they weighed a ton. When I got home I hung them up in the airing cupboard to dry. The following day I checked to see if they were dry as I wanted to wear them again. They weren’t. In fact they were almost as wet as they were when I hung them up. Had they been Rohan jeans they would have been dry as the drying time is up to ten hours. Ho hum.

    I definitely need to get some. Take a look by clicking the link.

    With only a week left to get you Gift Your Gear donations in and still receive your fantastic 15% discount in store.

    What with the weather being more indecisive than ever why not put that 15% discount towards a pair of trousers from our ‘Dry’ range?

    First off the tee are the Men’s Dry Requisite trouser which are hole in one when it comes to smart, waterproof wear, perfect not only for the golf course but also for those rainy days around the town.

    If you spend your days trekking across Hill and Moor instead, then we have a fantastic new addition to our waterproof line-up in the Dry Pioneer’s. A more outdoor style combined with two cargo pockets makes these ideal for those long walking days with a well deserved rest in the local pub afterwards.

    With the trees losing their leaves, and the weather unable to make its mind up, it has become quite apparent that Autumn is upon us! I myself am a big fan of the change of seasons, but no one likes it when you can’t work out how to dress for this time of year.

    Fortunately however, I can rely on my Sentinel shirt to keep me warm enough when the wind blows and not too warm when the sun shines. With four colours to choose from and a couple more starting in November, these lumberjack-styled smart-casual shirts are perfect for all sorts, whether it’s here in town or out in the wilderness. Check them out on the link below to catch up on all the features:

    Hopefully we’ll see you soon in store, and fingers crossed the rain stays away a few more days!

    Have a wonderful day,
    Chris @ Rohan Harrogate.
