For adventurous travellers there can be few greater nuisances than those presented by biting insects. And with the health-hazards presented by disease-carrying ticks and mosquitoes, effective protection isn’t just a matter of comfort. It’s a necessity.
Our Tian Shirt is a flattering smock-style pull on shirt that really comes into its own in the heat. It’s lightweight, soft, and has been treated with Dynamic Moisture Control™ and Insect Shield® for comfort and protection.
Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection – reducing insect landings and bites. And it’s so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it’ll retain its effectiveness through the life of the product. So, you can enjoy cool, peaceful evenings chatting about the adventures of the day, without unwelcome visitors.
The Tian Shirt is also rated with UPF 40+ Sun Protection*, and features a flattering crew neckline, shaped side seams and a deep buttoned placket front.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, there’s even a small zipped security pocket hidden in the side seam to stash your credit card or taxi money.
*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, odourless and durable 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.

Keeping comfortable in the heat can be harder than keeping warm in the cold. Depending on the fabric and garment we employ a variety of technologies such as our open Airflow™ weaves and our advanced Dynamic Moisture Control™ to encourage evaporative heat loss.
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+.
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.
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.
