Rohan Woodbridge.

Set on the Thoroughfare of historic Woodbridge Town, Rohan welcomes you to a beautiful tidal river and many interesting sites and buildings, an area of great natural beauty, a vibrant town and a good walking area. Rohan is the most dog friendly clothing shop in town! The Thoroughfare was recently voted one of the Top 10 High Streets in the UK according to The Sunday Times.

Visit the Rohan shop and meet Karen, Suzanne, Claudia, Sharon, Lois, Meg and Nick. We can kit you out for a Safari or an afternoon walking the dog and everything in between. We’ll give you honest advice and suggest the most appropriate clothing according to your needs.

At Rohan Woodbridge we have staff with experience of the following countries and regions:

  • United Kingdom and Europe including Moldova and Transnistria. Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia
  • Turkey and the Caucusus including Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan
  • Iceland
  • USA
  • The Caribbean including Martinique, St. Kitts and Nevis, Tobago, Antigua, the Dominican Republic and Cuba
  • Peru
  • North Africa including Egypt, Libya and Morocco
  • Tanzania, Zanzibar and Kenya, Sudan and South Sudan
  • The Near and Middle East including Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, the occupied Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Iraq, The United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Iran
  • Central Asia including Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan
  • Pakistan, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka
  • South-East Asia including Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam
  • China
  • South Pacific – The Solomon Islands and Vanuatu
  • Australia and New Zealand.

If you are contemplating travelling to any of these destinations then why not pop in and pick our brains? We have the knowledge and the gear to suit you. Check out our world map, maybe plan a trip or remember a past adventure. If you have a picture of yourself in Rohan clothing we’d love to put a copy up on the map for all to enjoy.

Got an old piece of Rohan clothing? Can we borrow it to display on the wall please?

Other attractions in Woodbridge include:

Honey & Harvey, an independent coffee shop opposite Rohan and a step up from the usual high street chains.

Sutton Hoo is just the other side of the Deben from the Tide Mill and can be reached by car or on foot. The 7th Century burial mound of King Redwald discovered on the eve of World War Two and containing some stunning artefacts. A great visit for kids and adults alike. A pleasant walk from Woodbridge along the banks of the River Deben.

Woodbridge lays credible claim to The Grand Old Duke of York of nursery rhyme fame. He’d march his men down from what is now Old Barrack Road to Market Hill (neither up nor down) and from there down to the river where the troops would stand on the edge of the Tide Mill Pool (now a marina) and have target practice across the river into Ferry Cliff where musket balls are still occasionally found.

Back in Woodbridge and in need of sustenance? Try the Old Bell and Steelyard on New Street or the Anchor at the bottom of Quay Street, opposite the railway station. Both pubs are well run and friendly and have good beer and good food.

“Rohan Woodbridge customers, Mr. and Mrs. Oldfield who recently visited the Perito Moreno glacier in southern Argentina. They are pictured here standing by the shop counter and in front of the backdrop which is the very Perito Moreno glacier on which they stood. Beside them are two pictures they have given us showing them on the glacier.How cool (in several ways) is that?

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. Elite is a word that gets bandied about a lot nowadays but a true elite is something special indeed. Rohan sells the Elite Jacket for women and men. They weigh 260 and 270 grams respectively which is special indeed for a waterproof jacket that is also breathable, has fully taped seams, bellows main pockets for the easy stashing of map or a guidebook. They benefit from a pocket in a pocket that can take a mobile or a GPS unit. On top of that the hood rolls down and fixes with a strap to become the collar if it isn't raining. Women's Elite Jacket: Men's Elite Jacket: See you soon.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. Featured this week is the Troggings Jacket. We stock them for women and men and it is made of the same fabulous material as the Troggings Trousers so many of you love so much. With a brushed interior for warmth and an outer that is both wind and water resistant this jacket combines comfort with contemporary good looks and functionality. There is elastane in the weave so there is a stretch to the material that makes it extraordinarily comfortable to wear whether you're shopping in town, cycling to and from work, hiking in the High Atlas or sitting on a long haul flight. At £79 can you afford to be without one? See you soon.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. This month Trail Magazine is accompanied by their annual Gear Guide. Rohan gets a couple of garments there, the Ascent Jacket for Women and Men is currently on test so you'll need to get next month's Trail for the result (but we're confident it'll turn out well). To find out about the Ascent Jacket follow this link: Rohan Summit Trousers, Men's and Women's are also currently on test but you can see them now at any Rohan shop or online at: Finally there's the Women's Extrafine Merino Knitted Crew. "Durable, odour resistant, packable and versatile - Rohan's merino crew is the perfect après-hill wear." See it here: We'll see you soon.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. As we head towards better weather, warmer days and evenings and the possibility of travel to foreign climes there is the ever present possibility of becoming someone else's lunch or supper. Luckily at Rohan we have the answer. Insect Shield clothing which will keep mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges at bay. Treated with a permethrin based repellent which is effective for 70 washings the clothing will ensure that while you're having your supper you don't become someone else's. We have hats, neck tubes, scarves, shirts, trousers and socks to cover you from head to foot if you so wish. Naturally they also dry quickly, have great pockets* and offer an excellent level of protection from harmful UV rays. Can you afford to be without this protection? You can take prophylaxis for malaria but not for dengue and Lyme's Disease from ticks has so many symptoms there is something for everyone, none of which are advantageous. Just as important, at the moment if you buy two insect shield garments the cheaper item is 30% off. We'll see you soon. *Only the shirts and trousers have pockets, sorry.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. In the most recent edition of Trail Magazine both Rohan Bags Shorts and Rohan Consignment Shorts do very well in comparison with other makes in their respective price categories. For these and more outstanding kit or for advice or just a chat and a dog biscuit* pop into Rohan Woodbridge - we're here from 0900-1700 Monday to Saturday, Bank Holidays excepted. We'll see you soon. *Dog biscuits are only available to dogs on a one a day basis.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. A lady has donated a pair of women's Rohan Bags to us for our classic Rohan display. They were born in 1990 and in that time have been to Ecuador, Peru, South-East Asia and Europe. They are part of a new Classic Rohan display in the shop which also features a Moving on and a Major T - both from the 80's. Pop in and see them in person or on our face book page, rohanwoodbridge. See you soon.

    Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing. Just as the weather starts to pick up and you start to think about shorts, T-shirts and maybe a lightweight waterproof just in case along comes Rohan's Summer Essentials offer. Until 3rd. June there is 20% off most shorts, lots of T-shirts, Polo Shirts and short sleeved shirts and the Award-Winning Elite Waterproof Jacket. Opportune? Plenty of food for thought but don't wait too long, some lines will sell out. We'll see you soon.

    Summer is here and the perfect compliment to the warmer weather is a fantastic offer on Rohan's Performance Linen. Linen blends look and feel as good as pure linen but don't crease as badly and when they do crease the creases drop out faster, they go through the washing machine and they dry in a trice. At Rohan, buy two items of Performance Linen and get a whopping 30% off the lower priced item. Looking and feeling great is suddenly a better than usual deal. We'll see you soon.

    Rohan's Elite Waterproof Jacket is featured in the latest copy of Trail Magazine. "This is a 3 - layer nylon fabric with high levels of waterproofness and breathability, but equally important is that this jacket has sealed rather than mesh pockets as well as a stormflap behind the front zip, which all adds up to more water resistance than many other lightweight jackets. Importantly it still has a good weight and the two pockets easily take an OS map and you can access those pockets reasonably well while wearing a rucksack. The hood has a wired peak and also a great fit and movement with the head. So for general walking this is pretty good"

    How cool is that? Robert Carlyle is filming in the area, a Danny Boyle film that is yet to be titled. He just popped in to Rohan Woodbridge to check out the sale that starts tomorrow and to buy a pair of shorts (not a sale pair). We can give tours of the parts of the shop he visited and Claudia, who served him, will sign autographs!

    THE SALE has started at Rohan Woodbridge. With over forty years of experience of making successful outdoor and travel clothing behind us, Rohan's Summer Sale is not to be missed. Many lines are 40% off. Some lines are only in the sale temporarily and others are running low already so don't delay your visit to Woodbridge and Rohan to avoid disappointment. We'll see you soon.
  16. ReplyTeam Rohan@Woodbridge
    FURTHER REDUCTIONS! Just when you thought a SALE couldn't get any better, it has. From Thursday 12 July there are FURTHER REDUCTIONS on a whole range of items which were already in the sale, More lines have dropped to 40% off, a significant number to 50% off and some to 60% off. This added to Rohan's legendry quality and longevity means things are even more of a bargain than before. We'll see you soon.

    OK, I'm excited. I haven't seen one physically but I already know that I'm going to buy the new men's Icepack Overhead. This might be the much sought after son of Olfio. An Icepack jacket that has a half zip, a big chest/pack pocket, the sleeves are more lightly insulated than the body and IT HAS A HOOD TOO. Just in one colour at the moment, evergreen/coal. I will be getting one of these. I've always liked the overhead style and still have an Olfio, several Moving Ons, Goa Tops and an Expedition Top as well as several Spark Tops and a Hideout Jacket. The Icepack Overhead will fit neatly into the collection and, I suspect, alternate with the Olfio which is, after all, thirty two years old. For a peek at one, here's a link: Naturally when I get mine I'll feedback on how I get on with it.

    Yet more goodies are going to arrive in the coming days. As well as the Icepack Overhead I'm keen to see and probably obtain a Troggings Vest. There are Women's and men's versions in Summer Grey and Coal respectively. First came the Troggings Trousers and then the Troggings Jacket. Next in the queue is the Troggings Vest, light and lightly insulated, wind and water resistant as well as stretchy for fit and comfort this will fill a niche that has been open for sometime. The women's is not on the website yet but the men's can be seen here:

    As we head towards the change in season and look forward to cooler weather we've taken the opportunity to update our Rohan heritage display. which now consists of a mustard coloured forerunner to Bags, a Dunova T, an early Olfio and the original Wild Vest. Pop into the shop to see these or look at our FaceBook page to see a picture from this evening. We'll see you soon.
  21. ReplyTeam Rohan@Woodbridge
    Ha! Well that display of heritage Rohan didn't last long. We've had to change the mannequin the display is on and yesterday's garments won't fit on today's mannequin so he is now dressed in a Dunova T (from yesterday), a Busker Jacket and a pair of Uplanders so his outfit goes from the early eighties to the noughties. That's the beauty of Rohan, long lasting and good looking together whatever the era. Hopefully the display will stay stable for a little while now and the picture soon to go up on our FaceBook page will stay current for more than 24 hours. See you soon.
