⊙ 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.
⊙ 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 (e.g. if you are looking at buying a collared shirt then use one of your own collared shirts to compare measurements to.)
Measure across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit. Please make sure that your shirt is pulled flat across the bust/chest, but not so tight that the buttons start to pull sideways. It is also worth noting for a shirt that if you are uncertain about your size, going one size bigger usually makes only a small difference to the fit of the shirt. For example if your shirt measures 45cm across the bust, then please use your discretion to decide whether you should opt for a size XS or S for this shirt. We would probably suggest going for the Small.
Compare your measurement with our size chart and order the size closest to that measurement.
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.
Why is this Rufiji™ MARATech™ 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.

Diversify your safari wardrobe with the short-sleeved version of our Women’s Rufiji™ long-sleeved shirt, made from the same strong, cool, technical fabric with a feminine cut for protection and style.
The days of boring, shapeless safari shirts are over. Although we normally recommend long-sleeved shirts on safari, the short-sleeved safari styling of this flattering shirt merges with the numerous technical features to provide you with a great-looking garment that also offers outdoor protection, comfort, and convenience.
MaraTech™ Ripstop fabric is 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 serve to promote movement of air around the body.
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. The Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Safari Pioneer Short-Sleeved Shirt also has two functional buttoned breast pockets which complement the overall look of the shirt. These features combine to create a safari shirt which is adapted to the outdoors, but which is equally stylish and comfortable for you to wear on your travels and every day.
About Rufiji™ Outdoor Apparel: As we have spent years going on safari, know African conditions intimately, and were not entirely happy with the other outdoor and safari products available on the market, we have designed and manufactured the Rufiji™ range of clothing and accessories. The result is a range of clothing that has been tailored for your travels, with the Women's Rufiji™ Safari Pioneer Short-Sleeved Shirt a key part of the range.

Women’s Rufiji&trade MaraTech™ Safari Short-Sleeved Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: A short-sleeved safari shirt made from 100% strong and cool Rufiji™ Ripstop MaraTech™ fabric which quickly releases wrinkling caused by packing.
⊙ WICKING: The effective moisture wicking of the MaraTech™ fabric moves 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 top back section of the shirt.
⊙ QUICKDRY: This shirt will wash and dry quickly to ensure that you are able to wear your shirt time and again on your safari or travels.
⊙ FEMININE CUT: The shape of this shirt ensures that the days of boring, shapeless safari shirts are long gone!
⊙ 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.
⊙ POCKETS: Two chest pockets with button closure for easy access.
