The Alpha Silver Camisole: a quick-drying lightweight base-layer, with moisture wicking and anti-bacterial treatments.Read more…
Our Alpha collection is designed as a technical base layer for active sports. The Alpha Silver Camisole is amazingly soft, light and comfortable to wear. Incredibly durable, it’s ideal for trekking, walking and biking, as well as for wearing every day.
The fabric features anti-odour control technology, based on silver chloride made from recycled silver. This clever, patented anti-microbial technology employs ionic silver to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms and the associated build-up of odour. So you stay feeling fresh, and odour free throughout the most challenging treks, even in the heat of a long summer’s day. And because the material’s treated with our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish, it’s incredibly high-wicking and dries in a flash.
Easy-care allows for machine or hand washing. Simply rinse the camisole through and it’s almost touch-dry, and totally dry in three hours, ready to wear again. And it never needs ironing.
The Alpha Silver Camisole not only looks good, it ticks all the performance boxes you’d expect from a technical base layer.
95% polyamide, 5% elastane with DMC™ and with Silvadur™ odour control technology.
Pack Size: 100ml
Drying Time: 3 hours
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.
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.
