Designed for adventurous travel and outdoor activity, the Core Silver Polo is a UV protective, moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial performance top.
Packing for travel is always a dilemma, especially if you have an active lifestyle and want to be prepared for some energetic R&R when you get to your destination. Luggage space is invariably tight, particularly if you travel by air and experienced travellers know each and every item of luggage has to earn its keep. Versatility is the key and the secret to a successful travel wardrobe is to pack stuff which can perform dual functions.
Take our Core Silver Polo for instance: it's a good looking, classic polo shirt which wouldn't look out of place in a smart restaurant or bar.
It's also a highly functional travel shirt which is packed with technology making it suitable for a whole range of adventure activities. The fabric contains Silvadur™, an anti-microbial treatment which helps prevent odours and keeps the shirt feeling fresh. It features Coolant™ technology which is a process where the fabric is embedded with microscopic mica crystals which reduce the temperature of the fabric by an incredible two degrees when compared to untreated fabric. This means the fabric feels cool to the touch and is a major benefit if you're wearing the shirt in hot conditions.
Add to this our Dynamic Moisture Control™ permanent wicking treatment and you've got a polo shirt which is far more than the sum of its parts. There are also neat design touches such as displaced shoulder seams to reduce rubbing from rucksack straps.
In addition to all these benefits the Core Silver Polo also has a three hour drying time, doesn't need ironing, weighs in at just 170gms and has inbuilt UV protection.
You've now got some tough decisions to make. Should I pack the beach volley ball set? Or the snorkel and flippers? Or a couple of Rohan polo shirts? It's a tough one...

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 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.
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.
