The vest or gilet has made a valuable contribution to the Rohan Clothing range, appearing on many kit lists over the years. It really was an expression of the early Rohan clothing system commitment to clothing layers.

The first Rohan Vest was the Wild Vest. A sleek, body fitting gilet which complemented both Olfo and Sohao.

The Wld Vest was included in Chris Townsend’s kit list for the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) in 1985.
