FACTORY SHOP - Men's MARATech™ Safari Adventurer Shirt
By The Safari Store
Why is this Rufiji™ Safari Shirt on sale for so little? We are pedantic about quality. As is the case with this shirt, even the smallest sticker mark or defect left after production means that we do not pass a product - even if they are just about perfect. We also prefer not to dump near-perfect garments for environmental reasons. We have a small number of our best-selling Rufiji™ Safari Shirts which are just about perfect now available for you to buy for a big discount. Hurry though there are not many left. UK Only. Sizes may differ to our usual range so please check size chart below before ordering.. Note: Any sticker marks are easy to remove with a small amount of 100% alcohol (Isopropyl is best and costs very little from a pharmacy or online) by using an ear bud or lint-free cloth to wipe the marks off. Your rights are not affected and our usual terms apply for returning garments for an exchange or refund within 28 days. Discount codes do not apply to these factory shop shirts.

Prefer simplicity in your shirts? With all the technical features of our MaraTech™ fabric, but with fewer pockets, the Safari Adventurer is a simplified version of our Rufiji™ MaraTech™ long-sleeved shirts.
With the Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Safari Adventurer, we have sought to simplify the styling of our Rufiji™ MaraTech™ shirts. Not everyone wants or needs two pockets and a zipped security pocket on safari. While we realised that our MaraTech™ fabric is the ultimate as the technical fabric of choice, we looked at the world of men's fashion and came to realise that many were styled with one pocket, or even none at all.
The Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Safari Adventurer retains the vital characteristics that make it the ideal shirt to take on safari. We strongly recommend wearing long-sleeved shirts on safari. The long-sleeved shirts within the Rufiji™ MaraTech™ range are ideal on safari and in the outdoors as they allow you to roll up and secure your sleeves when too hot or roll them down when chilly or to benefit from the protection offered by the fabric.
The double roll-up sleeve tabs are hidden when the sleeves are down, but hold your sleeves in place when rolled up. The double loop and tab design is an adaptation added from our expedition-testing and was developed to keep your rolled-up sleeves in place even when wet.
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 you dry and comfortable in warmer climates and the built-in SPF offers maximum sun protection. The SilverPlus anti-bacterial technology keeps your shirt smelling fresh between washes. It is also quick-drying and easily releases creases, making it perfect for travel. The +Vent system of hidden vents along the top back seam also serves to promote movement of air around the body.
Expedition testing and countless hours outdoors mean we have developed the Rufiji™ range of clothing that meet our demands and standards. Our in-house testing ensures we deliver high quality clothing with features to make for comfortable, stylish wearing no matter where you are. The sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt are an industry first and were designed to secure your sunglasses to your shirt to stop them falling out when you bend over.
About Rufiji™ Outdoor Apparel: We have spent years going on safari and we know African and adventure travel conditions intimately. We know what works best in extreme climes and what we demand from the clothing we wear. Simply put, other products on the market did not perform to our standards. The next step was obvious: to design and manufacture our own safari & adventure clothing range. The Rufiji™ Range was born. The result is a line of clothing that has been tailored for your travels.

You can view the size chart in inches or centimeters by clicking on the "cm" or "inch" text on the green bar above the chart.
The measurements shown above are garment measurements so should be compared to another garment rather than your body measurements. Take a similar item that you own that fits comfortably to do the comparison. Please follow our guide below and scroll back up this page to place your order for this item.
Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
You will need the following items:
• Measuring tape
• A flat surface (such as a table or counter)
• A notepad and pen
• An item of clothing from your wardrobe that fits comfortably and is similar to the one you wish to purchase (e.g. if you are looking at buying a collared shirt then use one of your own collared shirts to compare measurements to.)
Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Bust/Chest: Measure across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit.
B. Sleeve Overarm: Measure from the end of the cuff to the shoulder seam.
C. Centre Back Length: Measure from the nape of the neck on the back of the shirt to the bottom hem.
Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most 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.
Rufiji&trade MaraTech™ Safari Adventurer Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: 100% strong, lightweight Rufiji™ Ripstop MaraTech™ fabric. Quickly releases creasing caused by packing. Ripstop gives the fabric extra strength. Creases are quickly released after unpacking and the fabric is quick to dry for your convenience.
⊙ WICKING: Strong, cool MaraTech™ fabric draws perspiration away from skin and promotes quick evaporation for maximum dryness and comfort.
⊙ SPF50+: The Sun Protection Factor is a measure of the amount of the sun's ultraviolet rays that reach your skin. Our MaraTech™ fabric will protect your skin from harmful sun exposure - in effect, sunblock for your clothing. This is the highest SPF rating we know of on a garment.
⊙ ANTI-BACTERIAL TECHNOLOGY: SilverPlus anti-bacterial technology keeps your shirt smelling fresh for much longer without washing.
⊙ +VENT SYSTEM: This shirt includes our new +Vent system. This system increases the flow of air around your body by including hidden vents along the seam-line of the back, top section of the shirt.
⊙ ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: Use the double tab-and-loop system for flexibility and convenience. The tabs secure the sleeves when they're rolled up but remain hidden when sleeves are down. We have added in a second sleeve tab per sleeve to keep your sleeves in place when wet – another adaptation based on our expedition testing.
⊙ SUNGLASSES LOOPS: An industry first! Many of us carry our sunglasses hooked over the top button of our shirts but, as we all know, our sunglasses often fall out when we bend over. We tested and trialled new sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt. To prevent your sunglasses from falling out, simply use the first loop to secure them in place. If you are doing more active outdoor activities, loop through the top and bottom loop. It is a simple solution, but highly effective.
⊙ POCKET: Not everyone needs two chest pockets and a security pocket and so this shirt has been simplified in styling to include only one chest pocket with a velcro closure for easy access.
