Our lightweight Maroc Polo combines the cooling properties of linen with easycare functionality.Read more…
Made with Performance Linen™ this smart-casual polo has all the style and cooling properties of classic linen, with Rohan technology and easycare functionality. It’s the perfect top for the busy traveller.
Linen is a fantastic and stylish fabric but unfortunately it can be time consuming to maintain its crisp good looks – it takes too long to dry and has to be ironed. Unlike normal linen, Rohan’s Performance Linen™ is easycare which means its quick drying, machine washable and crease resistant. So you can wash it in the evening and it will be comfortably dry by the morning, with no ironing required.
Our Performance Linen™ takes the natural, high-wicking ability of normal linen and uses a loose weave to allow extra air to pass through making it refreshingly comfortable all day long.
We’ve also added a little bit of elastane giving the fabric a slight stretch, offering more freedom of movement and lasting comfort.
Its versatile design, with a classic button placket, makes it smart enough to wear under a jacket in the evening or simply with a pair of shorts on the beach. There’s really no better holiday polo than the Maroc Polo.
Performance Linen™ (83% polyester, 11% linen, 6% elastane).
Pack Size: 500ml
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.
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.
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.
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.

I have been a fan of Rohan clothing for many years and have half a dozen polo shirts. When this linen type version was introduced I thought I would try a couple and bought one of each of the two colours for a holiday that would involve quite a bit of wandering in town and country. The Marco Polos were absolutely perfect; smart (no creases after being packed) cool, comfortable, and nicely fitted. On returning home they washed and dried easily and now after several wearings they look as good as new. Needless to say I have now bought some more and they are my favourites.
