Designed for adaptability on safari, outdoors, and every day, these trousers are a travel must. Zip-off legs make them shorts and longs in a single garment, allowing you to pack smart for holidays.
Gone are the days of bulky, uncomfortable, cotton zip-off trousers. These incredibly light, strong, comfortable trousers make packing an easy task. When you get to deciding whether to take shorts or trousers, these zip-off trousers solve the problem! Wear these zip-offs as trousers in the mornings and evenings when it may be chilly or if you are going to places such as the Masai Mara, which are high above sea level. As the day heats up, or for more active safaris and outdoor activities, simply convert the trousers into shorts. Unlike other zip-off trousers, the shorts are so good we could sell them on their own!
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 trousers fresh between washes. It is also quick-drying and easily releases wrinkles, making it perfect for travel.
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 and this is further achieved by pairing these trousers or shorts with a belt through the belt loops. As the ends of the trouser legs don’t have any zips or buttons, it is also easy to shorten the leg length should you need to. These Zip-Off Safari Trousers have two cargo pockets, one zipped back pocket, and two hand pockets – ample space for you to keep guide books, sunscreen, and so forth.
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.
Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Zip-Off Safari Trousers - Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 100% strong, lightweight Rufiji™ Ripstop MaraTech™ Polyamide fabric. 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.
⊙ ZIP-OFF TROUSER LEGS: The zip-off legs offer flexibility, allowing for wear as trousers or shorts. This is a packing-friendly option, effectively giving you two garments in one – saving space and reducing the weight of your suitcase.
⊙ ADJUSTABLE WAIST: The waist is adjustable via a discreet elastic strip on the inside of the waistband. Together with the belt loops, you are ensured the most comfortable, stylish fit.
⊙ POCKETS: Five multi-functional pockets including two cargo pockets, one zipped back pocket, and two hand pockets make these trousers a functional safari, travel, outdoor, and everyday choice and complement the overall look of the trousers.
*Please do not assume your size. Always check the size guide.
*Please note that we recommend that you wear your zip-offs as trousers in the evenings as part of your strategy against malaria. See our insect repellent page for more information.
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 or inches please see the top left of the size chart table.
•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:
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 a similar style to the one you wish to purchase
Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Waist: Measure across the top of the waistband from corner to corner.
B. Front Rise: Measure from the top of the front waistband to the crotch seam;
C. Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg hem.
Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those measurements. 1/2 Waist 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.
