Offering all the performance of a technical base layer top but designed in a relaxed, casual style our Essence T Long Sleeve is perfect for travel, outdoors and everyday.
Made from a blend of sophisticated technical fibres, our Essence T Long Sleeve offers a high performance alternative to a basic cotton top.
The Dryknit™ fabric looks and feels like a top-quality cotton jersey but that’s where the similarity ends – its performance has more in common with a technical outdoor base layer than anything you might find in a High Street clothing shop.
Like a technical base layer, it wicks extremely efficiently. It’s also easy to wash – in the machine or by hand – and will comfortably dry overnight, even in cool or humid conditions. It’ll be ready to wear again the next morning, with no ironing required.
It’s constructed using ‘Vortex’ spun yarns to provide increased durability – it’ll never stretch, fade or lose its shape. It just keeps going – year after year.
It also offers a useful level of protection from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays in conjunction with all the benefits of Airflow™ cooling.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish offers cool comfort in hot, humid conditions – in fact, it’s the perfect top for warm-weather trekking and travel.
Our Essence T features a flattering scooped neckline and a gently shaped hem.
*A Note on Sun Protection
All Rohan garments carrying our sun protection icon have been tested in accordance with recognised international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection. Garments which meet the required standard are awarded a rating of UPF 40+. Protection may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.
Fabric: Dryknit™ (95% polyester, 5% elastane) with DMC™.
Pack Size: 380ml
Drying Time: 6 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.
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+.
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.
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.
