The Full Story+

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.

Fabric: 83% polyester 17% polyamide with Dynamic Moisture Control™.

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 2 hours

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.

Great shirt but beware the poppers

★★★★☆

I am happy with this shirt, but might not buy it again. It's a comfortable fabric that looks good and washes and dries well. But, I didn't notice that it has what is described as a 'snap front closure' i.e. poppers. But the trouble is, they do pop! For example, when a rucksack strap pulls on the shirt or something snags on it. Fortunately the shirt is a good size for me, but if it were a little small then the bust poppers would also pop. So, nice as this shirt is, it really needs buttons. I bought this in the sale and I think it's good value at that price.

Excellent value

★★★★★

I already have two of these shirts in different colours (pale blue and pale turquoise) so was pleased to see the teal colour offered

Bought in the Rohan sale so makes it even better value

These shirts wash very well, hang them on a coat hanger and no need to iro.

Great for holidays for that reason

Wear it open over a co-ordinating T Shirt or buttoned as a more formal blouse and it works well and it makes it more versatile
