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 and dress smart.
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. To prove this point, our model images of these trousers were taken using a pair of trousers that had just come out of one of our Rufiji™ travel bags.
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. The rise of these trousers allows you to wear them at natural waist or just below natural waist.
The button up tabs allow for the trousers to be rolled up and secured – you really are spoilt for choice in how to wear these trousers. These zip-off safari trousers also have one cargo pocket, one zipped back pocket, and two hand pockets – ample space for you to keep guide books, sunscreen, and so forth.
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 – and you won’t even notice the zips. This is a packing-friendly option, effectively giving you two garments in one – saving space and reducing the weight of your suitcase.
⊙ ROLL-UP TABS: Roll up your trouser legs and secure them by means of the button roll-up tabs – just another way to wear these versatile trousers!
⊙ 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: Four multi-functional pockets including one cargo pocket, 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.

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 pair of trousers which are 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 trousers flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Waist - Across the top of the waistband from corner to corner. Note that for women we also include hip which is across the trousers, measured 20cm below the waistband, but parallel to the waistband; ⊙ Front Rise - From the top of the front waistband to the crotch; ⊙ Inside Leg - From the crotch to the bottom of the hem on the trouser leg.
STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements.Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.

Thank you so much for the wonderful, lightweight safari trousers. They were unbelievably comfortable and perfect for my five nights on safari - I did not need any other trousers. So many people commented on them...
