The Full Story+

100% cotton T-shirts look great straight from the packet but, before you know it, a few spins on a hot wash will convert it into a shapeless bag that’s only fit to use as car cleaning rag. Sad but true.

Fortunately we have come up with a solution: cue the Element T, the thinking man's cotton T-shirt. Only it's not cotton.

It’s made from a blend of sophisticated technical fibres that have been ‘Vortex’ spun to provide long-term durability – basically it’ll never stretch, fade or lose its shape. It just keeps going – year after year.

A Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish helps to wick moisture extremely efficiently, offering cool comfort in hot, humid conditions – in fact, it’s the perfect option for warm-weather trekking and travel.

It’s also easy to wash – in the machine or by hand – and will comfortably dry overnight. So it’ll be ready to wear again the next morning, with no ironing required.

Fabric: Dryknit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane).
Weight: 180g
Pack Size: 580ml
Drying Time: 3 hours

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
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: 180.0000gLightweight - Weight: 180.0000g

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: 580.0000mlPackable - Pack Size: 580.0000ml

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: 3.0000 hoursFast Drying - Drying Time: 3.0000 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.

Best Tee money can buy.


I've owned many different Tees over the years some twice the price and this one is by far the best quality and technical ability by far. I have these in six different colours but favorite is black (classic). I even wear with a 12 litre rucksack and leaves no marks or bobbles on the back of the Tee. Colour looks as good as new (I wash on a cold wash with a decent colour liquid). No shinkage. Dries quickly and NO NEED TO IRON - HOORAY! I could go on.......

Men's Element T


A beautifully simple t-shirt that you can wear under any layer and great on its own when it's warm enough. Pimento orange is a fantastic colour too!

Great All-Around T-Shirt


This is a good all-around t-shirt. At 6'5" tall, I appreciate that it has some additional length to it. It has a nice feel, better than cotton I would say, and dries quickly.
