Introduction:
Simplified styling and a more relaxed fit for warm-weather everyday wear, full of features for comfort and protection on safari, local adventures, and in the outdoors. This is a shirt true to its name: you will want to wear it every day.

We’ve made our outdoor and safari clothing to look great without compromising on technical features for the outdoors. This pocketless women’s button-down shirt is made in our latest BUGTech™ fabric, which has been tested and adapted to be the best - offering insect defence, sun protection, and moisture wicking built into the micro-ripstop fabric. This ultra-lightweight fabric works hard, looks great, and does it all with the luxury of a soft hand feel.

We’ve focused our shirt designs on cut and styling - and this pocketless technical shirt also has a more relaxed fit for the urban and outdoor explorer. The Everyday Shirt is right at home on safari, adventure travels, during outdoor hobbies, or for simple everyday style and functionality. It’s been expedition tested to ensure it performs, so you can set the pace of your adventures with the assurance that your clothing will keep up.

BUGTech™: it's in the fabric of who we are
The wicking effect of many anti-insect clothing brands is retarded by the addition of anti-insect finish. This traps heat and can be very uncomfortable. In developing BUGTech™, we wanted to ensure our clients got the technical benefits of our highly-successful MaraTech™ fabric with added invaluable insect defence.

The mantra behind Rufiji™ clothing is "No marketing hype - just the facts" - and so we embarked on intensive in-house and independent testing to make sure BUGTech™ performed.

• BUGTech™ fabric has been proven in independent tests by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Pesticide Trial Section to effectively repel insects. Please view the test results in the images above. We know of no other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• We have tested and compared BUGTech™ and MaraTech™ and concluded that the wicking has not been affected by the anti-insect treatment of our BUGTech™ shirts.
• The active ingredient in our BUGTech™ fabric is permethrin which is used at the ultra low dosage of 500ppm. Permethrin is a man-made version of a natural insect repellent found in certain Chrysanthemum plants. BUGTech™ utilises a proprietary permethrin formula to provide effective, odourless insect defence.
• BUGTech™ is effective against most biting insects.

If you have any questions regarding BUGTech™ and the development of the fabric, please do not hesitate to contact us.

In Africa, out on your favourite trails, or on warm summer days, a long-sleeved shirt helps you to cover up and escape the sun’s rays. The Everyday Shirt takes it a step further by offering built-in UPF50+ sun protection. The roll-up sleeve tabs on each sleeve also give you the option of securing your sleeves at the elbow to adapt to conditions.

It also provides advanced features that are a match for travel and the outdoors. It releases creases fast, so you can go from packed to perfectly wrinkle-free in no time. The fast-drying ripstop also helps you to pack light knowing you can wash and go for fresh shirts all adventure long. Its anti-microbial finish also works to keep your shirt fresh between washes.

The ripstop fabric wicks moisture and dries fast, keeping you dry, cool, and comfortable for everything from active outdoor pursuits to warm-weather travels.

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 outdoor & safari and adventure clothing range. The Rufiji™ range was born. The result is a line of clothing that has been tailored for your travels.

*Please do not assume your size - always check the size guide below.
* The BUGtech™ fabric can be worn by all ages. The active ingredient has been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for application onto textiles and clothing. It is non-leaching, i.e. it won't transfer from the fabric / garment onto the wearer's skin. Hence, even if one was to perspire heavily or lick the fabric, there is no chance of the Vital Protection transferring.
* While the sunglasses loop reduces the chances of losing your glasses, it may not prevent them falling from your shirt in every instance. Please always be vigilant when it comes to your precious eye wear.

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.

Women’s Everyday BUGTech™ Long-Sleeved Safari Shirt – Further Information:

⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 100% Rufiji™ micro ripstop BUGTech™ (polyamide) fabric. This latest BUGTech™ fabric is feather-soft, lightweight, and offers a range of made-for-the-outdoors features for comfort and protection. Features include sun quick crease release, quick-drying properties, and an anti-microbial finish.

⊙ BUILT-IN INSECT DEFENCE: Independent testing of our BUGTech™ fabric has confirmed the anti-insect properties do not compromise on its moisture wicking ability, which is often the case within the industry.

⊙ WICKING: Strong, cool BUGTech™ fabric draws perspiration away from skin and promotes quick evaporation for maximum dryness and comfort.

⊙ UPF50+: The Ultraviolet Protection Factor is a measure of the amount of the sun's ultraviolet rays that reach your skin. Our BUGTech™ fabric will protect your skin from harmful sun exposure - in effect, sunblock for your clothing. This is the highest UPF rating we know of on a garment.

⊙ FEMININE CUT WITH RELAXED FIT: The shape of this shirt ensures that the days of boring, shapeless outdoor & safari shirts are long gone! This shirt also offers a looser, more relaxed fit for comfort.

⊙ ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: Roll up and secure the sleeves of this long-sleeved shirt for flexibility and convenience. The tabs secure the sleeves when they're rolled up but remain hidden when sleeves are down.

Product Note:
• While the sunglasses loops reduce the chance of losing your glasses, it may not prevent them from falling from your shirt in every instance. Please always be vigilant when it comes to your precious eyewear

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