The Full Story+

Made from a blend of durable, technical fibres which feels like soft cotton, yet offering a robust performance. Long sleeves adjust from full length with tabs, providing greater ventilation and versatility.

Featuring two zipped chest pockets with a mesh lining that double up as chest vents. A large vent on the rear of the shirt has also been incorporated for increased airflow, improving breathability. Insect Shield® technology has been treated on the entirety of the shirt for long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection.

These modern fibres have a Dynamic Moisture Control finish and Sun Protection UPF 40+, keeping you feeling cool and comfortable even in hot and humid conditions while protecting you against harmful UV rays. A clever design feature ensures the neck collar is shaped at the rear for extra protection against the sun.

UPF 40+ Sun Protection Note

All of our garments are tested for their Ultraviolet Protection Factor, and those that achieve a rating of UPF 40+ are noted as protection against UV. Garments awarded a 40+ UPF block 97.5% of UV radiation rating, so for every 40 units of radiation, 39 are blocked, and 1 contact the skin. 

Insect Shield® Note

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.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 2 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 2 hours

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.

Sun Protection UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered 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.

2 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

Dynamic Moisture Control™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

Insect Shield®

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each garment is treated with permethrin – an invisible and odourless ingredient that helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges.

My Xmas present - a Pioneer Shirt

★★★★★

My wife knew I liked the look of the of the Pioneer Shirt – to me it looks the same as the Expedition Shirt (see Andrew’s review!). The fact that it is a plain blue (nice Blue Shadow) is a benefit too as it just not checked! The heavier fabric of the Pioneer is interesting and whilst I have no issues with there being two side entry chest pockets plus two top entry pockets, having both on both sides seems a little bit of overdesign. I like the fact that the dry loops are in the chest pockets as I have in the past found them slightly irritating at times being right in the same space as my trouser belt. The benefits of the other shirt features – insect repellent, rear vent, sun protection - will be discovered over time so its difficult to say now whether it has exceeded expectations or is good/bad value. Based on past experience I will be wearing this shirt in ten years time so plenty of time to evaluate it better.

Certainly, the Medium I have fits perfectly so no issues there.

My wife bought me the matching pair of the Alltime Sock as well so it’s a good combination.

Expedition shirt or Pioneer?

★★★★☆

I bought this shirt in error as both I and the Rohan shop staff thought it was an Expedition shirt. For a long time the Expedition shirt has been my main or only travel shirt. I put a clean one on in an evening, wear it the next day for cycling, walking, mountaineering. travelling whatever. The wash it out and leave to dry overnight. Thus on most trips two shirts suffice. I never saw the point of the short sleeve version, as it is so easy to roll up the sleeves of the long sleeve shirt. The fabric although very light is surprisingly wind resistant, and I prefer it to the heavier Pioneer fabric.

Unfortunately Rohan did mess up the design of the Expedition shirt a few years ago by changing the zipped pocket from side entry to top entry, making it very difficult to get anything out. The Pioneer shirt gets this right by having two hidden side entry pockets, but I prefer the fabric used on the Expedition.

On balance I prefer the Expedition shirt, but I wish Rohan would the design defect of the pocket - a single pocket with hidden side access, as on the Pioneer would be great, and more like the earlier Expedition design.

Note that the size guide from Rohan is misleading. I have a 40 inch chest, but the small fits me fine.
