Designed for adventurous travel and outdoor activity, the Core Silver T is a moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial performance T shirt.
We've all put an extra jumper on in winter to warm up, but imagine if you could put a T-shirt on in summer to cool down?
Believe it or not, this is exactly what our Core Silver T technical base layer can do for you.
It's made from a technical fabric which has had microscopic particles of jade heat-set into the fibres. In its natural state, jade feels cool to the touch, in fact scientists will tell you it's up to 2°C cooler than its surroundings. This is why the Core Silver T helps you keep your cool. Tests have proven temperature within the fabric will be lower than untreated fabric.
The fabric is also treated with anti-microbial Silvadur™ odour control technology, based on silver chloride made from recycled silver. This clever, patented anti-microbial technology inhibits the growth of microorganisms and the associated build-up of odour – really useful when the going gets hot and sticky.
The natural stretch in the fabric provides comfort and for this year we've included body-mapped panels to help provide unrestricted freedom of movement. Meanwhile, on the inside, an eyelet construction allows moisture to quickly transfer away from the body, regulating your core temperature and we've added a small zipped security pocket for keys or a key card.
The Core Silver T can be worn on its own, or it will comfortably fit under any Rohan fleece or jacket as part of a layering system.
Fabric: 100% polyester with Silvadur™
Pack Size: 460ml
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Staying cool in the heat is actually more challenging than keeping warm in the cold. The most effective fabric technology is to use open weave structures that disperse heat through convective cooling.
Another first for Rohan. Unique Coolant™ technology works by embedding microscopic mica crystals into the knit of the fabric. This has an active, cooling effect on the body. Tests show that the temperature within the garment is two degrees lower than in normal, untreated clothing. In terms of comfort this is massive. In the search for new tactics to solve the age old problem of how to keep cooler in hot weather Coolant™ represents a real breakthrough and a significant step forward.
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.
