Made from a blend of sophisticated, technical fibres, our Essence T offers a high-performance alternative to a basic cotton top.
Designed in a relaxed, casual style but offering all the performance of a technical base layer, our short sleeved Essence T is a highly functional alternative to a basic, cotton top.
Made from a blend of sophisticated, technical fibres, Dryknit™ fabric looks and feels like a top-quality cotton jersey but it will outperform anything made from cotton to be found on the high street.
It wicks really well, is easy to wash – in the machine or by hand – and will dry overnight, even in cool or humid conditions. It’ll be ready to wear again the next morning, with little or no ironing required. And, because it’s made using ‘Vortex’ spun yarns, it is durable and won’t stretch, fade or lose its shape. It just keeps going, year after year.
Dryknit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane).
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.
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.
Staying cool in the heat is actually more challenging than keeping warm in the cold. The most effective fabric technology is to use open weave structures that disperse heat through convective cooling.
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.

For me this is the ideal T-shirt, especially for walking in warm weather. It keeps me cool and dry, and it can easily be washed and dried overnight when travelling. Clever waist shaping, perfect length, sleeves long enough so that backpack straps don't rub on bare skin. Opaque stretchy fabric, and good sun protection. Ticks all the boxes! Expensive at full price but great sale offers.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
