When we set out to design a smart/casual woollen travel pullover, we knew we had to start with the right fabric.
And extra-fine merino was an easy choice.
Merino wool is nature’s finest technical fabric - it has an uncanny ability to regulate your temperature in a wide range of conditions. It’s nice and cosy in the cold but never too hot when the temperature or your activity level start to rise.
It ‘wicks’ moisture extremely efficiently and, because wool is the only fibre in the world which can absorb vapour, it delays the onset of sweating – keeping you far more comfortable and eliminating that unpleasant chilling feeling you sometimes get when you take a break or slow down.
Because of the high quality of fibre we specify, our Extrafine Merino Knitted Zip Top is incredibly soft and luxuriously comfortable – there’s none of unpleasant itching you get with ordinary wool.
Merino wool has another remarkable property which makes it particularly suitable for travel – it has an amazing natural resistance to the build-up of odour. You can wear it for days on end, without feeling the need to give it a wash. On a long trip, with limited washing facilities, that’s a real bonus.
Wear it layered over a nice shirt or t-shirt for an effortless smart/casual look.
Fabric: 100% extrafine merino wool.
Pack Size: 850ml
Drying Time: 6 hours
We use man-made technical insulation that offers high levels of thermal efficiency, quick dry times and minimum bulk. We also use the finest goose down for the coldest environments. All materials for cold weather, that carry the warmth icon, are rated Base, Mid, High or Extreme allowing you to select what you need with accuracy.
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.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. Rohan is your constant companion for every journey, whatever the journey.
