A high performance technical base layer combining all the benefits of our Tencel® lyocell fabric with Dynamic Moisture Control™.
Every serious trekker knows that cotton tops are a no-no. They soak up moisture and take ages to dry – which is why modern synthetics are so popular. So why spoil it all with ordinary cotton underwear?
The new Serene Vest benefits from our Tencel® lyocell blend – a naturally anti-microbial moisture-wicking fabric. Made from eucalyptus trees, lyocell fibres are highly absorbent and inhibit bacteria – one of the reasons they’re commonly used in bed linen.
Compared to cotton tops, our Serene Vest wicks moisture in a flash and dries far more quickly. It’s easy to wash and packs down small. And no matter how often you wear it, it won’t stretch, fade or lose its shape. Works great with our Serene Knickers.
83% polyester, 11% Tencel® lyocell, 6% 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.

Have this in 4 colours and about to order the fuschia. Versatile. No sign of pilling. Comfortable, no cutting in under the arms but still remaining decent so hiding the bra. Can be worn as a vest, to sleep in or on its own. Is my sub 20 degree summer walking top worn under the Trail Hoodie which is an excellent combination. Packs small and dries in a couple of hours on a hanger if previously rolled in a towel, while travelling.
Fantastic colour, packs really small and dries in no time after a quick rinse in the sink. I also love this colour. Nice enough not to just be an undergarment.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
