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 its 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 Rufiji™ MaraTech™ SafariElite Short-Sleeved Shirt also has two functional breast pockets with button closure 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™ SafariElite Short-Sleeved Shirt a key part of the range.
Women’s Rufiji&trade MaraTech™ SafariElite 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.

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 end of the sleeve hem (ignore image for sleeve length above as that is for long sleeve shirts). 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.
I now have three of these shirts and have worn them daily as a daytime shirt over a light sleeveless vest on two safari holidays in Botswana. This is a very versatile combination. I wear the shirt buttoned up in the early morning and open as the temperature warms up. I slip off the shirt when I want to enjoy a little sun and cover up again as the sun becomes stronger, The well ventilated back and loose fit is ideal. Mosquito repellent would be the only improvement I could suggest.
