Enjoy the protection of our MaraTech™ fabric in style in our signature women’s long-sleeved shirt. Tailored to be the ideal adventure travel shirt, its features make it a perfect fit for the outdoors.
As the first and most important piece in our range of safari and travel clothing for women, we believe we have created an exceptional adventure travel shirt in the Rufiji™ MaraTech™ SafariElite Long-Sleeved Shirt. We strongly recommend wearing long-sleeved shirts on safari for their versatility and protection from the elements. 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 when too hot or roll them down when chilly or to benefit from the protection offered by the fabric.
The roll-up sleeve tabs are hidden when the sleeves are down, but hold your sleeves in place when rolled up for flexibility and convenience.
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 wrinkles, making it perfect for travel. The +Vent system of hidden vents along the top back seam also serves to promote movement of air around the body.
The Rufiji™ MaraTech™ SafariElite Long-Sleeved Shirt also has two button-up chest pockets for your convenience. This shirt is practical but is also designed with a flattering, feminine cut so you can enjoy simple safari style no matter where you are. These features combine to create a safari shirt which is adapted to the outdoors, but which is equally enjoyable to wear every day.
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.
Rufiji&trade MaraTech™ Women’s SafariElite Long-Sleeved Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: 100% strong, lightweight Rufiji™ Ripstop MaraTech™ fabric. Quickly releases wrinkling caused by packing. Ripstop gives the fabric extra strength. The fabric is quick to dry for your convenience.
⊙ MOISTURE WICKING: 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 back, top section of the shirt.

⊙ 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.

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.
Please note: If you are purchasing the Women's BUGTech™ Anti-Insect Safari Shirt we are changing to a new format for the sizes from when our new stock arrives in October 2019. We will be calling the sizes: XX-Small, X-Small, Small, Medium, Large and so on. The conversions from Size 8,10,12 will be as follows: Size 8 becomes XXS; Size 10 becomes XS; Size 12 becomes S; Size 14 becomes M; Size 16 becomes L; Size 18 becomes XL; Size 20 becomes 2XL; Size 22 becomes 3XL.

I think this shirt is brilliant and it is great to have a shirt with a feminine cut in the bush that is still practical.
I have used this shirt every second day for 4 weeks in the Jungle in Asia. I just love it. It sits perfect, it is great to wear, and it still looks new after my jungle trip ! I am thinking about getting a second one for my next trip!
