Bugs hate it, you'll love it. Our high-wicking, sun protective Trail Neck Tube is treated with Insect Shield® to help ward off those evil mosquitoes.Read more…
This simple neck tube could make all the difference between enjoying your great adventure and having a wretched time wishing you'd stayed at home.
Why? Because, our Trail Neck Tube has been treated with Insect Shield®.
The secret ingredient in Insect Shield® is permethrin. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fibres of the fabric it will offer protection against insects throughout the expected life of the product.
The material has been given a sun protection* rating of UPF 40+, so it will also help to keep the sun off your neck, face or head - however you decide to wear it.
So, for your next great adventure, make sure you pack a Trail Neck Tube to allow you to enjoy those evenings around the camp fire and leave the antihistamine tablets at home.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments which meet the required standard are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.
*A Note on Insect Shield®
Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each Insect Shield® labelled garment is treated with Permethrin, an invisible an odourless ingredient which protects against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the expected life of the product – well beyond the limits of most fabric finishes.
88% polyester 12% elastane with Dynamic Moisture Control™.
Pack Size: 120ml
Drying Time: 2 hours
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+.
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.

Bought this as a versatile and lightweight snood/hat/neckerchief garment for exploring the rainforests of central america. The insecticide helped a lot, and provided much needed protection for my neck and, on occassion, my head, when worn as a cap. Excellent quality and really useful for the trip. Looks pretty cool too.
