About Craghoppers World Travel Clothing (www.craghoppers.com) Created more than 40 years ago in the United Kingdom and tested by some of the world’s toughest hikers, climbers and outdoors enthusiasts, today Craghoppers is part of the $600 Million international Regatta Group with 20,000 stores in 30 countries. The United States Craghoppers launch includes premium, performance products for hiking, climbing, camping and all kinds of recreational travel. Brand lines include Craghoppers, Bear Grylls for Craghoppers and NosiLife, the world’s only permanent insect repellent technology.


The Craghoppers Story The History Craghoppers was born in 1965 in West Yorkshire, England, the brainchild of people who loved the outdoors and wanted nononsense, affordable outerwear that performed and traveled exceptionally well. Prototypes were meticulously designed and rigorously hand tested from the beautiful British Peak District to Mount Everest. Today, Craghoppers is part of the Regatta group, one of Europe’s leading outdoor products retailers and is sold worldwide in 26,000 retail outlets and 30 countries but the same philosophy and testing process is more important than ever. The brand and production process remains hands-on, with new designs sent out to lakes and mountains and streams to test exactly how they stand up and which features could be tweaked to make them even more user-friendly and real-world practical. Craghoppers has always been about a love of the outdoors and the experience of travel. The company’s designers and R&D specialists travel the world, seeking inspiration, new technologies and fabrics and then put them to use in the creation of gear and accessories that perform under the toughest conditions. The formula has made Craghoppers Britain’s leading authority in outdoor, travel and adventure clothing and a major seller worldwide.


The Technology Everything produced under the Craghoppers or Bear Grylls for Craghoppers lines is meticulously planned. Innovative technologies, leading design-treatments and premier production processes are all employed to ensure the kind of attention to detail and real-world practicality that help Craghoppers stand out.

NosiLife World exclusive technology that uses a textile impregnation process to give synthetic fabrics permanent insect repellency that lasts a lifetime of wear. NosiLife is the only permanent insect replant technology in the world and has been rigorously and independently tested by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the leading test authority in Europe.
