A technical base layer or a top in its own right - the Core Silver Polo is designed for adventurous travel and outdoor activity.Read more…
The only polo you’ll need for an active lifestyle - the Core Silver Polo will keep you feeling cool, looking fresh and ready to go for longer. Plus it’s UV protective, high-wicking, antibacterial and lightweight enough to pack in your hand luggage.
This highly functional travel shirt can double as a technical base layer and is packed with technology. The fabric contains Silvadur™, an antimicrobial treatment which helps prevent odours and keeps the shirt feeling fresh.
It features Coolant™ technology meaning the fabric is embedded with microscopic mica crystals, reducing the temperature of the fabric by an incredible two degrees when compared to untreated fabric. Add to this our Dynamic Moisture Control™ permanent wicking finish and you've got a polo shirt which is far more than the sum of its parts.
Versatility is key when packing for your next adventure and the secret to a successful travel wardrobe is to pack stuff which can perform dual functions. Our Core Silver Polo’s classic look and high performance technology will keep you looking great whether you’re out on the town or doing some adventurous trekking.
What’s more the Core Silver Polo also has a three hour drying time, doesn't need ironing, weighs in at just 170gms and has inbuilt UV protection. There are also neat design touches such as displaced shoulder seams to reduce rubbing from rucksack straps.
So whether you’re scrambling over rocks in the Rif Mountains or working up a sweat hillwalking at home, the Core Silver Polo will be a reliable, high performance choice.
*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.

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.
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.
Another first for Rohan. Unique Coolant™ technology works by embedding microscopic mica crystals into the knit of the fabric. This has an active, cooling effect on the body. Tests show that the temperature within the garment is two degrees lower than in normal, untreated clothing. In terms of comfort this is massive. In the search for new tactics to solve the age old problem of how to keep cooler in hot weather Coolant™ represents a real breakthrough and a significant step forward.
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.

Have worn this in both cool and very warm weather. I find the bright colours a very good idea for hiking (being able to be seen). While doing some quite hard hill walks, I have found them to be excellent at dissipating sweat. A collar also helps prevent sunburn of the neck that often happens with crew collars.
I live in Spain and love the material and cut which is very comfortable. My only criticism is the selection of colours available. I personally find the red and blue ones to be very strong colours and would prefer something a bit more subdued.
As I live in a subtropical climate I always appreciate a shirt that works well in humid conditions. Even though it very synthetic it works really well - better than Rohan's other polo shirts that only good enough for spring or autumn in the tropics.
This shirt is non sticky, non smelly and feels pleasant to wear.
