Shaving weight, without compromising performance, our Aura Shirt is the lightest we’ve ever made.
Making a shirt this light isn’t easy.
But it can be done; lots of clothing companies have had a bash.
But making a shirt this light, which looks this good, that feels this much like a regular shirt really takes some doing – and requires the application of some incredibly advanced fabric technology.
The big problem with making extremely lightweight fabrics using standard weaving techniques is that the finished shirt becomes very sheer, unpleasantly clingy and generally not very nice to wear.
To solve this problem we’ve worked hand-in-hand with one of our most innovative fabric mills to develop a new, three-dimensional weaving technique.
This gives the shirt a reassuringly solid handle and a robust structure – but adds nothing to the weight. Our Aura Shirt weighs in at an astonishing 110g. And looks and feels great.
It packs down to the dimensions of a decently-sized apple and offers high levels of both durability and tear resistance. Plus, there’s also a concealed chest pocket too.
Our Aura Shirt takes advantage of sophisticated Silvadur™ technology from to minimise the growth of bacteria and our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish gives complete comfort in hot and humid conditions.
And, when the time finally comes to freshen it up, it’s simplicity itself to wash. Just chuck it the machine, or the nearest stream, and hang it up to dry. You’ll find it dries in a matter of hours, ready to go again. No ironing required.
It’s the perfect summer shirt for travel, outdoors and everyday wear.
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+.
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.
