Craghoppers has introduced a new range of high security luggage, a technical range of travel footwear and new anti-insect swimwear range.

With seven new styles, Craghoppers new lightweight luggage range includes the 40l Hybrid Holdall is a versatile piece for modern adventure traveler that can comfortably hold enough kit for a weekend adventure or City break. The internal organisation is designed for Etech, clothing & travel essentials. Security features have been added to the zips and fabric to prevent tampering, such as cut resistant fabric to the front pocket and puncture resistant and tamper proof zips. It can be carried as either a rucksack or shoulder bag. To complete this, the outer and linings are made from recycled materials in line with our Honestly programme.

With six new styles for men and four for women, Craghoppers has launched its most comprehensive and technical range of travel footwear to date. With styles for Expeditions, Desert, Adventure and After Adventure – Craghoppers has heralded firsts with its clever use of technology. The firm is the first to use NosiLife technology throughout its footwear. Built into the polyester mesh uppers, NosiLife will offer an extra layer of defence against biting insects which further reinforces the travel story.

 

At the top of the range and suitable for rugged travel and expeditions are the Salado Hi and Salado Mid boot. The boots are made from a suede/mesh outer and a waterproof bootie which has been constructed using flame lamination – more environmentally friendly than traditional methods. The Vibram outsole offers traction, stability, braking and self cleaning. Another addition is the Crawlerguard insect cover. Hidden neatly away in the front of the tongue, it pulls out to stretch over the top of the boot opening to stop insects crawling in, reducing the risk of bites and the possibility of something, potentially poisonous crawling into the boot overnight should they be left outside. The mid cut gives consumers the choice of a lower profile boot.

Lastly, a new range of swimwear will help safeguard consumers from biting insects with NosiLife anti-insect technology built into the wicking fabric along with SolarShield UPF sun defence. As well as offering a bikini and swimsuit for women and swim shorts for men, Craghoppers range also includes rash vests, kaftan and sarong and key safeguarding pieces for kids too including rash vest, shorts and sun hat.

The new range also heralds Craghoppers new partnership with Galapagos Conservation Trust. For every piece of swimwear sold, Craghoppers will donate a percentage to support their significant work in the Galapagos Islands to make the island plastic free. This is an important investment for Craghoppers as part of its Honesty Project, as the brand continuously assesses its ranges in line with the company’s sustainability, ethical and environmental goals.
