An everyday shirt – with hidden technical benefits.
Our Worldview Shirt is a classic, everyday shirt – turbocharged with hidden performance benefits.
It looks and feels like it’s made from the finest quality cotton. But it’s not. It’s made from a high-specification blend of sophisticated modern synthetics.
So, it’s much more durable than a cotton shirt. It’s also lighter, more crease resistant and much quicker drying. It also offers a very good (UPF40+)* level of protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation and, with our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish, much greater comfort in hot and humid conditions.
Washing the shirt is a simple matter of throwing it in the washing machine and hanging it out – our hidden Dryloops™ mean you won’t even need clothes pegs. It’ll comfortably dry overnight with no ironing required.
There’s a small passport-sized pocket in the left hand seam.
The shirt features shaped side seams and a curved hem and is made with our Minimum Layer Construction™ principles to minimise weight and maximise comfort.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments which carry our sun protection icon, have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. As a guide to the level of protection offered to covered areas, garments are awarded a rating of either UPF 20+ or UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet; the reduction of associated health risks will vary with other factors such as skin type or individual medical history.
Fabric: 58% polyester, 42% polyester with DMC™.
Pack Size: 400ml
Drying Time: 3 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.
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 either UPF 20+ or 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.
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.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
