MaraTech™ Ripstop fabric sets itself apart as being cool, lightweight, yet very strong. Its moisture wicking capabilities draw moisture away from the skin to keep your child dry and comfortable in warmer climates. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a sun protection rating of UPF30 or higher and these trousers have built-in UPF30. The SilverPlus anti-bacterial technology keeps your trousers fresh between washes. It is also quick-drying and easily releases wrinkles, making it perfect for travel.
These zip-off trousers are great for children who are active outdoors. Worn as trousers, they are a great option for keeping your children warm or protecting them from the sun. Trousers are also a great first barrier to ticks when walking in the grass. As the day heats up or to suit their activities, the legs are easily zipped off to convert the trousers into shorts.
The Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Zip-Off Safari Trousers were built for outdoor and everyday comfort and convenience. The side elasticated waistband ensures a good, comfortable fit all day long. These Zip-Off Safari Trousers have two cargo pockets and one hand pocket for carrying their sunscreen, accessories, or interesting artefacts they find along the way.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments.
STEP 1: You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own pair of trousers which are a comfortable fit. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording.
STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your trousers flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Waist - Across the top of the waistband from corner to corner; ⊙ Front Rise - From the top of the front waistband to the crotch; ⊙ Inside Leg - From the crotch to the bottom of the hem on the trouser leg.
STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements.Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
