The casual, long sleeve polo top that performs like a technical base layer.
Offering a relaxed, casual appearance in conjunction with bags of hidden, technical performance, our Stria Polo is a highly functional alternative to an ordinary cotton polo.
Made from a sophisticated blend of synthetics, it’s been treated with our highly effective Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish. So, just like a technical base layer, it’s high wicking and incredibly comfortable in hot, humid conditions.
It’s also easy to wash – either by hand or in the machine – and will dry overnight, even in relatively cool conditions. As you’d expect, it will never need ironing.
What’s more, it won’t fade, stretch, bag or go out of shape and offers a high (UPF 40+) level of protection* from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Which means you can wear our Stria Polo in the sort of places you wouldn’t dream of wearing an ordinary cotton top – up mountains, down dales, on bikes, in boats or on skis. Which, given its everyday good looks, makes it an extremely useful item in your wardrobe.
In terms of design, we’ve gone for a very classic, flattering look with a deep buttoned placket and plain cuffs and hem for easy layering and a neat appearance.
The slight stretch in the fabric offers unrestricted freedom of movement, an attractive drape and increased wrinkle resistance.
A discrete zipped security pocket is hidden in the side seam – it’s not quite big enough for the family silver but it provides plenty of space for a credit card and your taxi money.
*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™ (96% polyester, 4% elastane).
Pack Size: 450ml
Drying Time: 4 hours
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+.
Pocket science at Rohan is all about precision and detail of design, but most of all, it’s about keeping your most important stuff safe at times when losing keys, passports and wallet is more than just an inconvenience. We use several different methods – whichever is the most appropriate. Some pockets are completely hidden with micro zips, some are touch and close with roll-over tops and some are high quality zips.
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.
