Helping guard against biting insects and harmful UV rays, this durable expedition shirt combines great style with outstanding performance.
Combining style with practicality is something of a Rohan speciality.
Our flattering Sanctuary Shirt is a fine example of the way we exploit technology within our garment design.
By adding a treatment called Insect Shield®, the Sanctuary Shirt helps to guard you against the unwelcome attention of tiny creatures conspiring to ruin your trip.
The seersucker construction of the material allows it to stand away from the skin, helping the air circulate and therefore keeping you cool. So it'll help you look good and feel great whether you're in the heart of the rainforest or outside your villa with a sundowner.
But the fabric doesn't confine its protection to insects, it helps to protect you from the sun too and comes with a UPF 40+* rating. This, coupled with Dynamic Moisture Control™, means our high-tech travel shirt will ensure you'll be nice to be near if your adventure takes you to warmer climes.
Backing up the high-performance fabric with some down-to-earth practical design details such as integral drying loops, three secure pockets and roll up sleeve tabs, the Sanctuary Shirt is an essential addition to the wardrobe of the serious traveller.
*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 and odourless treatment 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 treatments.
83% polyester 17% polyamide with Dynamic Moisture Control™.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I like this shirt, it is my second, bought one last year. I am sun sensitive and it is a nice cool cover up with the bonus of insect repellant. Easy to pack and wash, dries quickly and doesn't need ironing. I think price a tad top heavy but like most Rohan stuff it wears well.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
