Blending natural, soft cotton with quick-drying technical fibres for comfort and practicality.Read more…
Casual yet stylish, the mid-weight Fenland Shirt works equally well dressed up or down.
With its classic Rohan styling and zipped security pocket feature, the Fenland Shirt has the look and feel of a cotton shirt with the added benefit of ultra-modern fabric technology. The carefully selected blend of technical fibres improves durability and drying time compared to traditional cotton shirts, and the relaxed, comfortable fit provides good air circulation around the body.
The lightweight material combines a natural feel with the cooling touch of synthetic yarns, making the Fenland Shirt an essential addition to your summer travel wardrobe. Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish wicks moisture, keeping you cool and comfortable in warm climates and this shirt even offers a useful UPF 40+ protection*.
*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.
59% polyester 41% cotton.
Pack Size: 440ml
Drying Time: 2 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.
Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
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.
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.

I always use long sleeved shirts when traveling as I have encountered too many situations when weather has taken a turn for the worst. Also, there is the flexibility of rolling sleeves up if it too hot or rolling them down in burning sun, especially at high altitudes. This leads me to the main point for this shirt and also several other long sleeve shirts that Rohan sells, the shirts sleeves are too tight to roll up anymore. The designers seem to have cut down on the material in all the shirts I have bought in the last 2 years with the exception of the Crosscheck & Sentinel shirts, both warmer weather shirts. So after 30 years of buying Rohan shirts for travel I have had look elsewhere for my warm weather shirts. For me these warmer weather shirts have become a fashion item suited to the fashion model era. I still use them for casual wear at home. A travel shirt for me has to have 2 zipped pockets, long sleeves that roll up easily, a good collar.
Also I wish Rohan would stop using the cheap scratchy loop hangers and labels that sit in side the collar. It wold save me trying to remove them.
I’ve had these Fenland shirts for what seems like years. They don’t wear out even when worn 9 months in the year. Summer, tropics, spring and autumn. They have a useful, discreet pair of cloth loops to hang them up after washing in, say, a sink. (You might not immediately find them.) The zip breast pocket holds a passport.
Very cool shirt to wear on warm days. The zipped chest pocket is very useful for cash, cards or tickets.
I have bought half a dozen Fenland shirts over the last 4 years and they are barely showing any signs of wear, despite being worn on a weekly basis. Very comfortable to wear whatever the weather and no ironing needed!
Very comfortable and cool. I have two of these which I have taken on trips to hot climates.
Excellent loose fitting shirt, great material washes easily and dries quickly and can be work without ironing.
