Lightweight, technical travel shirt.Read more…
Our Worldview Shirt is a classic casual shirt that’s perfect for travel and everyday wear in town.
It looks and feels like it’s made from cotton.
But it’s not, it’s actually made from a high-specification blend of sophisticated modern synthetics.
It’s much more durable than cotton. It’s also lighter, more crease resistant and much quicker drying.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ treatment wicks moisture and improves drying times. Nice to have all the time – but really handy in a warm British Summer or when you’re travelling through the Tropics.
Washing the shirt is simple: throw it in the washing machine or rinse it through in a hotel basin and hang it out to dry.
It’ll comfortably dry overnight – with little or no ironing required – ready to go again the next morning.
Which makes it perfect for lightweight travel: why take two shirts when one will do?
60% polyamide, 40% polyester.
Pack Size: 270ml
Drying Time: 2 hours
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.
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.
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.

The Worldview Shirt is incredibly lightweight at just over 100g – very easy to pack when travelling, and very refreshing and cool when worn. The material is a mix of polyamide and polyester which makes it very breathable in the heat of South East Asia. “Normal” cotton shirts are simply not effective in humid conditions, but this shirt can be worn all day without becoming drenched in sweat and smelling bad.
Other useful features are that it can be washed and dried in a couple of hours, and no ironing is required – very useful for all kinds of travelling. And there is one zipped security pocket so small valuables can be stored easily.
Many patterns are available, some with appealing floral designs – I particularly like the Blue Iris Print and Sepia Rose Print. And the shaped hem and side slits at the bottom means it can be worn without being tucked in and it still looks fine.
I wear this shirt for city sightseeing and general travel purposes, although I prefer using the Sanctuary Shirt for hiking and trekking as it is even more breathable and keeps the sweat away from my body incredibly well even in tropical conditions.
The Worldview has incredible durability – I have three of them, and they still look relatively new after a few years use. They hold their colour and shape, and there is no real wear or tear of the material. Overall – very good value for money.
I have 3 of these shirts and I think they are superb. I wear them for work and they really don't need to be ironed, unlike other supposedly "non-iron" attire. I have never used the pocket but like the fact that it's there.
Please can we have a red one next?
Just to say, that I have bought many of these shirts over the years, as I would far rather have a short sleeved shirt than a T shirt with horrible cap sleeves. If you want to travel light, these go with anything...shorts during the day and the old style Thai trousers in the evening. Only niggle being the side pocket....soon as you sit down, the pocket stays rigid...not a flattering look and there are more than enough pockets in all Rohan trousers. Hopefully a positive comment...lose the zipped side pocket and I would buy 2 more every year, as they are a lovely fabric and generally a feel good item.
A most excellent shirt fabric and style. Great for a full day out. Shirt feels and looks as fresh after a day in the office or travelling as it did when setting out in the morning. Am buying every colourway!
