Please read the instructions below this size chart before ordering. We have indicated whether this size chart uses body or garment measurements in the notes below the size chart. Allow 1cm variance for all garment measurements (as an example a 56cm garment measurement has a variance of 55-57cm. Please factor that into deciding on the size to order.)
To select cm (cm) or inches (in") please see the top left corner of the size chart table.
Please read the information below before selecting your size to get the best fit & save on returns costs:
⊙ The measurements shown in the size chart above are garment measurements so should be compared to the measurements for a similar garment you already own, rather than your body measurements. For instructions on how to measure please scroll down to see 'Three easy steps to ordering the right size' below. Once you have worked out your size please scroll back up this page to place your order for this item. This item is for men and women so please do work out your size.
⊙ 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.
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 - here you could measure up a fleece or hoodie you already own.
TIP: If you do not own a similar fleece, then using a collared long sleeve shirt or jacket which is a comfortable fit will give you an idea of the size which will fit you the best.
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.
Please note: If you are unsure about which size to order, please contact us before ordering and we will help you as best we can.
Features: ⊙ Made from soft, warm 100% cotton premium hoodie fabric, with micro-fleece feel on the inside (365gsm) ⊙ Hood with generous depth and drawstring ⊙ Fitted cuffs and waistband ⊙ Large kangaroo hand pocket ⊙ Embroidered Mara&Meru™ waterbuck silhouette ⊙ Packaged in a bag made from recyclable paper as part of our 'say no to plastic' environmental philosophy
A warm layer is a safari and outdoor essential – and there’s nothing cosier than a pullover hoodie in premium hoodie fabric, with micro-fleece feel on the inside. On open game viewers or wrapped up on the couch at home, this is the definition of snug.
Nothing takes the bite out of cold days like a plush pullover hoodie. The relaxed fit of our Mara&Meru™ hoodie makes it an ideal warm layer for African travels or cold days back home – and it’s so comfy it’s sure to become your natural go-to whenever there is a nip in the air.
The premium material matches soft comfort with thermal performance. The fitted cuffs and waistband traps warmth and the large front kangaroo hand pocket is an easy handwarmer – perfect for keeping the cold at bay. The hood has a generous depth and an adjustable drawcord, so you can cover your head and ears to adapt to conditions.
In a classic safari colour, this men’s and women’s hoodie also has a Mara&Meru™ waterbuck silhouette embroidered on the front – a subtle interest piece for safari, nature, and wildlife lovers.
You may be asking: “A fleece or hoodie on safari?” Trust us, on the back of an open Land Rover at six in the morning or eight in the evening, it does get cold! Much of Africa is also over 1000 metres above sea level (the Masai Mara, for example, is at 1,500 metres - the height of many ski resorts in Europe) and this contributes to the morning and evening chill. Please do not be fooled by hot midday temperatures - the hotter it is at midday, the earlier you go on safari. The simple fact is you will be very cold without a safari fleece, as the quote below confirms.
You will need a fleece for the majority of safaris. Not convinced? Please read the quote below or contact us:
"My husband did not procure one of your safari fleeces before we went and alluded to the fact whilst shivering on the back of a Land Rover on an early morning game drive that obviously you knew what you were talking about."
