Designed in a relaxed, everyday style but offering all the performance of a technical base layer, our Element T is a highly functional alternative to a basic, cotton top.
Made from a blend of sophisticated, technical fibres, our Element T offers a high-performance alternative to a basic cotton T-shirt.
The Dryknit™ fabric looks and feels like a top-quality cotton jersey but that’s where the similarity ends – its performance has more in common with a technical outdoor base layer than anything you might find in a High Street clothes shop.
Like a technical base layer, it wicks extremely efficiently. It’s also easy to wash – in the machine or by hand – and will comfortably dry overnight, even in cool or humid conditions. It’ll be ready to wear again the next morning, with no ironing required.
It’s constructed using ‘Vortex’ spun yarns to provide long-term durability – it’ll never stretch, fade or lose its shape. It just keeps going – year after year.
It also offers very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation in conjunction with all the benefits of Airflow™ cooling.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish offers cool comfort in hot, humid conditions – in fact, it’s the perfect option for warm-weather trekking and travel.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments which carry our sun protection icon, have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. As a guide to the level of protection offered to covered areas, garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet; the reduction of associated health risks will vary with other factors such as skin type or individual medical history.
Fabric: Dryknit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane) with DMC™.
Pack Size: 580ml
Drying Time: 3 hours
Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Depending on the fabric and garment we employ a variety of technologies such as our open Airflow™ weaves and our advanced Dynamic Moisture Control™ to encourage evaporative heat loss.
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+.
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.
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.
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.
Staying cool in the heat is actually more challenging than keeping warm in the cold. The most effective fabric technology is to use open weave structures that disperse heat through convective cooling.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
