Our Wayfarer Shirt guarantees uncompromising technical performance in conjunction with a relaxed, casual appearance and everyday good looks.
Designed for trekking and adventurous travel but perfect for the everyday, our Wayfarer Shirt is made from a hard-wearing 100% polyamide with a natural, soft, cotton-like feel.
It offers a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation and, with our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish, it’s extremely fast wicking and quick drying.
We’ve incorporated anti-odour silver technology into the fabric too – not essential, maybe, if you’re wearing the shirt around town. But nice to have and very useful indeed if you’re on a long trip where laundering facilities are limited.
When you do need to wash it, though, you’ll find it easy to clean – in the machine or in a stream – and it’ll comfortably dry overnight. Even in chilly or humid conditions. And don’t worry if you’ve forgotten your clothes pegs – Dry Loops™ hidden inside the hem mean you can easily hang it from an improvised washing line.
The Wayfarer Shirt features two buttoned chest pockets, a very secure zipped pocket and a neat penslot.
The shirt is designed using our Minimum Layer Construction™ techniques. We use a single layer of fabric for the yoke to make the whole shirt lighter, more breathable, faster drying and more packable.
The shaped hem features two side slits for a cleaner appearance when worn un-tucked and to allow easy access to your trouser pockets.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments which carry our sun protection icon, have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. As a guide to the level of protection offered to covered areas, garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet; the reduction of associated health risks will vary with other factors such as skin type or individual medical history.
Fabric: 100% polyamide with DMC™ and and Polygiene® odour control technology. Based on silver chloride made from recycled silver.
Pack Size: 800ml
Drying Time: 3 hours
Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Comfort strategies are limited. We choose the right weight of fabrics, employ Airflow™ weaves and use Dynamic Moisture Control™ technology.
We pioneered the testing of fabric for UV penetration in the UK over fifteen years ago. The health risks are now, of course, more widely recognised. All Rohan fabrics for hot weather, that carry the sun icon, are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor and rated UPF 40+.
Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
By painstakingly stripping out unnecessary fabric and avoiding the common practice of double fabric panels we gain many advantages. The clothing is lighter and less bulky as well as quicker drying and more breathable. And because our fabrics are super tough, functionality can be improved by stripping away anything that doesn’t really need to be there.
Tiny traces of silver are distributed evenly throughout the fibres of a garment. These inhibit the development of microbes that can grow exponentially in warm and damp areas, resulting in mould and odour. It is permanent, it will not wash out or wear out.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.
All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
