The Full Story+

The biggest plans can sometimes be upset by the smallest things. Biting insects for instance, and this is where the Sanctuary Shirt steps in. Combining style with practicality is something of a Rohan speciality. Our flattering expedition shirt is a fine example of the way we exploit technology within our garment design.

By adding Insect Shield®, the Sanctuary Shirt is transformed into a fabric barrier, helping to guard you against the unwelcome attention of biting insects 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 in the evening. 

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 snap front closure, the Sanctuary Shirt is an essential addition to the wardrobe of the serious traveller.

Insect Shield® Note

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.

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.

Packable - Pack Size: 360ml

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
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.

Insect Shield®

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each garment is treated with permethrin – an invisible and odourless ingredient that helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges.

Dynamic Moisture Control™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

4 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.
