The Full Story+

The key to building an effective outdoor clothing system starts with the base layer and these anatomically shaped briefs are the perfect start. They've got built in stretch to allow freedom of movement and shape retention and are treated with Silvadur™, a technology which impregnates the fabric with tiny traces of silver helping to prevent unwanted microbes developing in the fabric.

Featuring flat-locked seams and a double layer gusset coupled with low profile waistband, these ultralight 50gm briefs have been designed for an active outdoor lifestyle.

The mesh fabric construction increases airflow and also helps reduce drying time down to four hours, very handy if you’re travelling and have a busy itinerary.

Fabric: 95% polyamide, 5% elastane with DMC™ and with Silvadur™ odour control technology.

Functional Features

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 Technologies
Anti Odour SilverAnti Odour Silver

Tiny traces of silver are distributed evenly throughout the fibres of a garment. These inhibit the development of microbes that can grow exponentially in warm and damp areas, resulting in mould and odour. It is permanent, it will not wash out or wear out.

Dynamic Moisture ControlDynamic Moisture Control

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.

Fundamental Principles
Lightweight - Weight: 50.0000gLightweight - Weight: 50.0000g

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: 120.0000mlPackable - Pack Size: 120.0000ml

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: 4.0000 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 4.0000 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.
