Get your kicks in Gauge 66.
Our Ultra Silver T is the lightest technical T-shirt in the world.
It’s amazingly soft and unbelievably comfortable to wear.
But, unlike all the other lightweights, it’s also extremely durable. The secret is the density of the fabric. It’s a high-specification polyester that’s been knitted with an incredible 66 gauge construction. So, as long as you don’t snag it on a fence or branch, it’ll last for ages.
Unusually for something as fine as this, the appearance is also very opaque. Which means you can wear it on its own, without worrying about your tattoos showing through.
We’ve also incorporated Polygiene™ into the blend – this is a clever, patented anti-microbial technology which employs ionic silver to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms and the associated build-up of odour. Basically, you can wear it for ages without needing to wash it.
And when you do decide to freshen it up, you’ll find it easy to wash – in the machine or by hand. Just rinse it through with travel wash and hang it up to dry. It’ll be ready for duty the next morning – with absolutely no ironing required.
Needless to say, the Ultra Silver T ticks all the ‘performance boxes’ you’d expect from a technical base layer. It’s treated with our functional Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish so it’s incredibly high-wicking and dries in a flash. The shoulder seams are displaced to minimise any rubbing and it’s designed in a neat, technical, versatile style.
It’s perfect for trekking, biking and other highly active uses but, because of its understated appearance, it’ll also give good service as a general, travel T-shirt – particularly in hot or humid conditions. You could even wear it as everyday underwear.
100% polyester with DMC™ and Polygiene® odour control technology. Based on silver chloride made from recycled silver.
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.
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.
