Introduction:
A fleece is a safari necessity for chilly mornings, night drives, and high-altitude destinations. Combine this gilet with one of our long-sleeved shirts for comfort and style – even in summer.

You may be asking: “A fleece 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 1 000 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." R. Kneller, on safari in Botswana in October - one of the hottest times of the year in the Okavango Delta region!

Keep your torso warm with this safari gilet made from our soft, snug Rufiji™ fleece fabric. With two hand pockets, a full-length zip which zips right up to the chin, and an adjustable elasticated waist, this gilet is designed for warmth and comfort and also fits the part and looks great on safari, outdoors, and every day. It also has two inside pockets for your convenience. Paired with one of our long-sleeved shirts, discover the flexibility of being able to roll up your sleeves as the day heats up or during activities whilst enjoying the benefit of added warmth if you feel chilly.

*Please do not assume your size. Always check the size guide.

Say no to plastic packaging
Your Rufiji™ clothing is packaged in a recyclable paper bag. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.

Please use this size chart before ordering this product to ensure that you get the best fit and to save on returns costs.
•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:

STEP 1:
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.)

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.

How to measure chest/bust/arm/back

STEP 2:
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.

STEP 3:
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.
