Designed for adventurous travel and outdoor activity, the Core Silver Zip is a moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial performance zip top.Read more…
The Core Silver Zip has been developed with body mapped panels making it more comfortable for active wear and travelling.
The lightweight material is boosted by two clever technical innovations: the cooling technology relies on microscopic particles of Jade stone, heat-set into the polyester 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 Zip helps you keep your cool. And for active use, especially in warmer conditions, the Silvadur™ technology uses ionic silver to inhibit the growth of odour-producing micro-organisms.
The stretch fabric provides an ergonomic fit, improved comfort and greater freedom of movement. While the inside of the fabric has an eyelet construction which allows moisture to quickly transfer away from the body, keeping you cooler for longer. We've also included a small zipped security pocket for keys or a key card.
The Core Silver Zip can be worn on its own, or it will comfortably fit under any Rohan fleece or jacket as part of a layering system.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.
100% polyester with Silvadur™
Pack Size: 550ml
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.

Bought this a few days before going on holiday to Morocco....Something to wear on the flight and to just to stick in the rucksack before you get of the Plane....Its light and airy and keeps you cool ...wore it at night when the temperature drops and it felt comfortable ...I didn't realise there was a pocket at the back so an added bonus there ...I intend to use this a a base layer for climbing and also underneath my motorbike leathers so I will see how it fairs in the real world ...
Bought couple of months ago... you can wear as base layer or if warm on its own. I’ve worn on my bike. It keeps the
Chills out. But it great when walking. Especially with
the 1/2 zip front. Can be opened or zipped up to
regulate body temperature.
