The new lineup of road-ready duds embraces performance and protection, continuing the message of the brand’s Protect | Liberate marketing campaign. The Craghoppers kit is designed to protect intrepid wanderers from outside elements and “liberates you to experience your surroundings,” said a company representative.
Simplicity and protection for adventures – from what’s just around the corner to a trek along the Hawaiian coast – join technologies like Insect Shield and Solar Shield in the new collection. The apparel is also designed with fashion in mind, reflecting the aesthetic of urban as well as avid travelers.
Following the success of the Davenport Vest, it’s now available in jacket form. The Davenport Jacket (above) sports travel-friendly features while being sleek enough to wear around town. It also has an impressive 21 pockets, making it a good choice for travelers wishing to keep their essentials with them.
Also new are the Kiwi Trek Convertible Pants (above), which feature NosiDefence technology, Solar Shield sun protection and Smart Dry properties. This style is the most recent iteration of a travel staple – shorts and pants at the pull of a zipper.
No shoulder-season travel wardrobe would be complete without a shacket. Craghopper’s version, the Bridport Shirt Jacket (above), is a heavier layer with Natural NosiDefence construction to keep hungry bugs from ruining your adventure.
The women’s Vertex Jacket (above), is constructed from Craghoppers’ AquaDry three-layer fabric with DWR finish. A versatile piece with three pockets (including an RFID pocket), a grown-on hood, a waterproof center zip, reflective detail and thumbholes, the Vertex is a smart and lightweight waterproof jacket.
The Insect Shield Sydney Hoody (above), is constructed of a cotton polyester elastane jersey. With two zipped lower pockets, a grown on hood with a drawcord to the front and a full-length zip, it’s a lightweight travel piece for when you need to quickly cover up after stepping off the plane and into new climates.
The Silla Shirt (above), has a woven defense against insect bites and comes in playful floral prints that make outfits pop. With a slight pleat in the back, it has a more flowy fit. It also has Solar Shield technology, which offers up to 30 UPF protection.
