+ The Hilltop is a high spec, longer length waterproof jacket with excellent attention to detail, including sensible, deep pockets. The stiffened hood offers complete protection in a downpour and cinches without fuss for a tight fit. As you would expect from Rohan, it also looks smart enough for everyday and/or town use.
- Longer length jackets don’t suit everyone. Paul, our male reviewer, found the cut too generous and became very conscious of people looking (possibly laughing!) at him. It’s a heavy jacket and isn’t very practical when scrambling around on rocks.
VERDICT: We have often had readers asking for longer length jackets. Pair one of these with some walking boots and gaiters or wellies and you’ll hardly need a pair of waterproof trousers. It isn’t everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ but it is well made and impressively water- and windproof.
