Our long sleeved Trail Top will help keep the bugs at bay and the sun off your back. It's light, practical and very comfortable. Use it as a technical base layer or an active outdoor top.Read more…
Our Trail Top is a perfect technical base layer or active outdoor top, enhanced with Insect Shield® technology. The process converts clothing into long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection – reducing insect landings and bites. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it’ll retain its effectiveness throughout the life of the product.
As well as discouraging unwanted attention from insects, the long sleeves do a fantastic job of keeping the chill off when the sun goes down, and with its UPF 40+ Sun Protection*, it provides defence against the sun’s harmful UV rays when you need it.
Tough and lightweight, the Trail Top is made from soft jersey-feel Dryknit™ polyester and designed using Minimum Layer Construction™ for less bulk and quicker drying times.
It's got a buttoned Henley neck closure so you can let a bit more air in when the going gets tough. It also packs down nice and small too, so it’s always there for you at the bottom of your day pack, just in case.
*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.
*A Note on Insect Shield®
Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each Insect Shield® labelled garment is treated with Permethrin, an invisible an odourless ingredient which protects against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. The treatment is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the expected life of the product – well beyond the limits of most fabric finishes.
Dryknit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane).
Pack Size: 580ml
Drying Time: 3 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+.
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.
This permethrin-based treatment is invisible, odourless and impairs the ability of insects including mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers and midges to land, and so reduces bites. It’s extremely durable too – and is designed to last for the lifetime of the product.
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.

This top is simply brilliant! Great as an under layer but equally good on a hot day. I use it for horse riding and cycling mainly, but also casual wear. Odour control is also excellent. It is so good I bought a second one!
Brilliant, great top. I find it very useful when riding during the summer with its effective insect shield. It is cool to wear, protective against flies and bugs and helps with odour control. It is also find it a useful warming layer in cooler weather. I think it is a great top for active wear, in fact I found it so useful I bought a second one!
Bought to go to Cape Verde. It was perfect. Early dawn when cool outside. It kept the breeze of me. Wind in Cape Verde pretty persistent. Just a really nice top for the money.
I’ve been a Rohan Fan now since the 80’s. Got more Bags than a supermarket.
The trail top is great, but not happy with the insect shield. You know what, i'm perfectly able to spray some anti bug stuff when i need to and dont need it building in. What next, will you guys also build in a water bottle! Seriously keep it simple. Anyway although i buy ALL your long sleeved tops, I avoid any with this chemical treatment.
