Using our impressive DryKnit™ fabric, the Originals T performs fantastically as a base layer and thanks to its bold, heritage colours and classic crew cut it looks great on its own in milder conditions.Read more…
Base layers today are an essential start to a layering system, but back in the 70’s the idea was still in its infancy with outdoor enthusiasts opting for cotton or wool which are either too hot or cold and lacked longevity and performance. That was until Rohan developed DryKnit™– a technical fabric that looks like cotton but performs like active wear. Our Originals T uses this fantastic fabric in the classic style of our Jekyll Crew T from 1981.
DryKnit™ is todays answer to cotton. Unlike cotton, it dries really quickly due to its high-wicking nature, has elastane offering great stretch for complete freedom of movement, and thanks to the airjet spun yarns the fabric feels super-soft, like cotton, but it doesn’t fade, lose its shape or shrink, so has great longevity.
All of these fantastic properties make the Originals T a brilliant base layer. Wear under a myriad of mid layer options for effective performance during cold-weather activities. The bold block colouring of the Originals T, an homage to the Rohan style of the past, make it a great choice to wear on its own on milder days, plus UPF 40+ sun protection will ensure you’re protected from the sun’s harmful rays.
Due to its technical fabric construction, the Originals T is very lightweight making it an ideal choice to take on your next adventure, and it also dries really quickly and is easy to wash in the machine or by hand, so you don’t have to waste time on laundry duties whilst on holiday.
Designed in a flattering, classic crew cut but with a touch of vintage styling in celebration of Rohan heritage, the Originals T is an effective, performance enhancing T that works brilliantly as a base layer.
*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 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.
DryKnit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane)
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.
