A superb all-rounder, the Freelance Shirt is what we call trans-seasonal (even trans-occasional) working hard all year round.Read more…
Our Freelance Shirt looks and feels just like high-quality cotton, but hidden behind its exterior is a clever blend of technical, quick-drying fibres and super tough polyamide which means its performance is in a different class.
Compared to cotton, it’s far more durable. It’s also very easy to care for – just chuck it in the washing machine and hang it out to dry. It’ll comfortably dry overnight with the lightest touch from a travel iron guaranteeing a smart appearance all day – even in the hands of the most amateur of ironers.
It’s full of clever design too: it packs down small, wicks moisture, offers UPF 40+ Sun Protection* - not absolutely essential in the UK but very important if your business takes you to hot or tropical countries, and anti-odour control technology to help you stay fresher for longer.
This smart fitting shirt also features a chest pocket - perfect for keeping travel tickets safe.
*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.
53% polyester, 47% polyamide.
Pack Size: 440ml
Drying Time: 2 hours
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've just used the shirt, during a two week visit to India. On several occasions I visited War Cemeteries, taking part in formal commemorations. The shirt was very light, cool and comfortable. Very packable, easy to press, and very smart. Top piece of kit.
