Made from a sophisticated blend of fibres, this vest offers a high-performance alternative to a basic cotton top.Read more…
If you're planning some walks in challenging terrain or hot climates this year then this technical vest could make all the difference between feeling hot and bothered or cool, relaxed and comfortable. It works superbly as a technical base layer but also looks good when you strip off your outer layers to cool down and is perfect for walking or cycling.
Made from a blend of durable, quick drying polyester and elastane for some stretch, it feels just like a top-quality cotton jersey. However, its high performance means it will enhance any outdoor clothing system.
We’ve given it displaced flat-locked seams to reduce bulk, limit chafing and increase comfort. Look closely at the subtle stripe pattern and you'll see the stripes are actually created using a ‘drop-needle’ technique to help aid its breathability and keep you cooler for longer.
It wicks really well, is easy to wash – in the machine or by hand – and will comfortably dry overnight, even in cool or humid conditions. It’ll be ready to wear again the next morning, with little or no ironing required.
It's durable and won’t stretch, fade or lose its shape.
88% polyester, 12% elastane.
Pack Size: 240ml
Drying Time: 2 hours
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.
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.
