The hotter it gets, the better it works.
Offering cool comfort and relaxed good looks, our highly functional Pacific Shirt is the perfect choice for the hottest and most humid conditions.
The secret is the fabric: it’s a silk-weight blend of two sophisticated modern synthetics – polyester and polyamide.
It feels great as soon as you put it on. There’s a natural ‘coolness’ to the fabric which is immediately noticeable – even in everyday conditions. But it’s not until you really test the Pacific Shirt in its natural home – the Tropics – that you realise what a remarkable piece of engineering it is. Put simply, the hotter it gets, the better it feels.
It wicks moisture instantly and dries so quickly, you’ll never notice it’s wet. It’s been treated with our highly effective Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish which lasts for the lifetime of the garment – so you can be confident that this level of performance is no flash in the pan. The fabric also provides a good level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
The fabric incorporates an advanced silver technology which inhibits the growth of bacteria and greatly reduces odour – not essential if you’re wearing the shirt at home but very useful indeed if you’re on a long trip with limited washing facilities.
It’s simple to wash, in the machine or in a stream, and will comfortably dry overnight – even in the most humid conditions.
For its weight, the Pacific Shirt is remarkably robust, offering reassuring levels of both abrasion and tear resistance.
Features include two spacious chest pockets which include zip closures for added security and roll-up sleeve adjusters.
The rear yoke is pleated for comfort and freedom of movement and is built using our Minimum Layer Construction™ principles to make the whole shirt lighter, less bulky, faster drying and more breathable.
We’ve included clever Dryloops™ at the hem which mean you can hang the shirt out to dry without the need to pack clothes pegs on your travels.
A neat feature is a small microfibre panel on the inside of the hem. It’s designed for cleaning expensive sunglasses without the risk of scratching them. Not essential, obviously, but quite a handy thing to have.
72% polyester, 28% polyamide with DMC™ and Anti Odour Silver™ from Polygiene®.
Pack Size: 400ml
Drying Time: 2 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.
Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
By painstakingly stripping out unnecessary fabric and avoiding the common practice of double fabric panels we gain many advantages. The clothing is lighter and less bulky as well as quicker drying and more breathable. And because our fabrics are super tough, functionality can be improved by stripping away anything that doesn’t really need to be there.
Tiny traces of silver are distributed evenly throughout the fibres of a garment. These inhibit the development of microbes that can grow exponentially in warm and damp areas, resulting in mould and odour. It is permanent, it will not wash out or wear out.
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.
