Prefer a shirt that takes it back to basics? This shirt has the technical features of MaraTech™ fabric but, without pockets, is a simplified version of our Rufiji™ MaraTech™ long-sleeved shirts.
With the Essential Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Long-Sleeved Safari Shirt, we have sought to simplify the styling of our Rufiji™ MaraTech™ shirts. Not everyone wants or needs pockets on safari and would prefer a shirt with an unfettered, continuous look. In addition to this, while we realised that our MaraTech™ fabric is the ultimate as the technical fabric of choice, our research showed many women do not like to carry accessories in pockets located in the bust area.
The Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Long-Sleeved Safari Shirt retains the vital characteristics that make it the ideal shirt to take on safari. We strongly recommend wearing long-sleeved shirts on safari. The long-sleeved shirts within the Rufiji™ MaraTech™ range are ideal on safari and in the outdoors as they allow you to roll up and secure your sleeves with the sleeve tabs when too hot or roll them down when chilly or to benefit from the protection offered by the fabric.
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 shirt smelling fresh between washes. It is also quick-drying and easily releases creases, making it perfect for travel.
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 safari and adventure clothing range. The Rufiji™ range was born. The result is a line of clothing that has been tailored for your travels.
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.
The Essential Women’s Rufiji™ MaraTech™ Long-Sleeved Safari Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: 100% strong, lightweight Rufiji™ Ripstop MaraTech™ fabric. Quickly releases creasing caused by packing. 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.
⊙ ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: Use the button-up roll-up sleeve tab system for flexibility and convenience. The tabs secure the sleeves when they're rolled up but remain hidden when sleeves are down.
⊙ +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 back, top section of the shirt.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments.
STEP 1: You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own collared long sleeve shirt which is a 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.
STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your shirt flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Bust/Chest - Across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit; ⊙ Centre Back Length - From the nape of the neck on the back of shirt to the bottom hem; ⊙ Sleeve Overarm - From the top of the sleeve where it joins the shoulder to the end of the cuff.
STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your 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.
