Designed to meet the challenges of the hottest and most humid climates, our Overland Shirt combines advanced fabric technology with functional design and understated good looks.Read more…
Taking advantage of a battery of advanced technology, our Overland Shirt is the ultimate warm-weather trekking, walking and travel shirt.
It’s made from a supremely functional blend of polyamide and polyester which combines a surprisingly light weight with reassuringly high levels of abrasion and tear resistance. It also offers a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Our expedition-proven Dynamic Moisture Control™ treatment wicks moisture in a flash and ensures the shirt feels cool and comfortable next to your skin. Not such a big deal in Britain – but absolutely essential in the Tropics.
Washing the shirt is a simple matter of dunking it in a bucket of water and hanging it up from the nearest branch – clever Dryloops™ in the hem mean you can leave the clothes pegs at home. And, if all you’ve got in your camp ‘laundry’ is a nail in the wall, you can just hang the shirt from the locker loop stitched into the rear yoke. It’ll comfortably dry overnight and, needless to say, it doesn’t require any ironing.
The shirt features two chest pockets which are secured with buttons. Behind one of the chest pockets is a generous security pocket which is closed with a vertical zip.
The whole shirt is constructed using our Minimum Layer Construction™ techniques to maximise breathability, reduce weight and increase comfort.
*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.
71% polyamide, 29% polyester with DMC™.
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.
