Renowned for its innovative fabric technologies such as NosiLife, SolarShield, AquaDry and NosiDefence, Craghoppers has transferred this expertise from over 50 years of skill in outdoor and travel clothing production into the corporatewear market, with its Craghoppers Expert range.
Ethical trading has always been at the cornerstone of the business and in 2012 Craghoppers joined the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative), to enable the company to benchmark procedures within the supplier base with the most forward looking companies in Europe.
In addition to Craghoppers’ innovation and responsible manufacturing stand, and to illustrate commitment to customers, the company also offers a lifetime guarantee on all garments.
Key to success
Offering top to toe solutions is key to Craghoppers success and the Craghoppers Expert range offers, everything from outerwear, midlayers, shirts, trousers and shorts as well as accessories for men and women. Offering a wide size range is a great feature with the men’s range available up to 4 XL and women’s to size 20.
Craghoppers’ new Expert Kiwi Trouser is set to make a stir. Perfect for the public sector market, we have introduced a very hardwearing, practical and protective trouser that incorporates Craghoppers SolarShield and SmartDry technologies and looks smart to boot. Incorporating multiple pockets, we have included knee pad inserts to support this area and hardwearing ripstop stretch fabric to the front and back, making them built to last.
The Expert Kiwi Long and Expert Madigan Long jackets, Expert Kiwi Thermic and Expert Softshell for men and women are all new styles for the Craghoppers Expert collection. The waterproof jackets are perfect for working outdoors, with the Expert Kiwi Thermic jacket offering that extra warmth with the microfleece lining and hollowfibre fill. The Expert Softshell is a smart and water resistant alternative to fleece – a great staple workwear piece.
The Expert Kiwi Gore-Tex Jacket is becoming a firm favourite in the range since its launch in 2016. It is the natural choice for those companies looking for a more technical offering for its staff. The combination of Gore-Tex – a well known and trusted membrane brand and the Craghoppers Expert brand has proven very successful.
Insect repellent clothing
Craghoppers Expert is the only brand to offer permanent insect repellent clothing in the corporatewear market. NosiLife is a true innovation and inherent of Craghoppers ethos to protect its customers. Available in long and short sleeved shirts, trousers, convertibles and shorts for men and women, NosiLife is perfect for when biting insects are at large, offering up to 90% protection. Craghoppers’ NosiDefence technology is the new kid on the block. Found in the Classic Kiwi trouser, this has been achieved through the bite proof construction of the trouser and has proved very popular across Europe.
So what does the future hold for Craghoppers Expert in 2017? A big push in the corporatewear market, building on existing business and forging links with new companies while pushing its technical fabrics, features, benefits and heritage of the brand.
