Protect | Liberate – New Outdoor Adventure Clothing Technology from Craghoppers @CraghoppersUK

By Jonathan Howe May 3rd, 2017 Posted in Travel Blog, Travel Gear Reviews No comments

Kach and I have been travelling all over the world for about four years now, so we know first hand the challenges that we are likely to face in various countries and climates. We have ridden motorbikes around sweltering South East Asia, explored the chilly highlands of northern India and the foothills of the Himalayas, hitch-hiked through the beautifully harsh mountains of Patagonia and even waded through knee deep jungle swamps in Venezuela. We’ve dripped in sweat, been frozen by biting gale-force winds and bitten half to death by swarms of mosquitos, often enduring more than one of these at the same time! We know exactly how important it is that our outdoor clothing lives up to the job.

What we have learned most during these four years of travel is that preparation is the key to traveling safely and in comfort, particularly when it comes to our clothing. When we have the right clothing for the climate we’re in, we can feel safe and comfortable at the same time, leaving us to simply enjoy the experience of travel.

This is where Craghoppers outdoor clothing comes in, because it’s designed to fulfil the three most important requirements of outdoor exploration – Perfect Insulation, Totally Waterproof, and Insect Repellent. These are the three basic necessities which allow us to remain warm, dry and to not get bitten to pieces!

On a more serious note, insect repellent clothing is one of the simplest types of prevention against illnesses like malaria, dengue fever, zika virus, botfly, various types of encephalitis, and a host of other debilitating diseases!

The philosophy behind Craghoppers’ new range of outdoor clothing is “Protect – Liberate”. In essence, to provide the protection we need from our clothing to make us feel safe, so that we can focus purely on what travel is all about – Escape; Adventure; Challenge; Education and Experience.
