Key Kit for Spring / Summer 2019

Spring- the time when we’re starting to think about summer clothes but we’re not quite ready to ditch the winter coat just yet. Transition between seasons can often leave a chill in the air – but don’t panic. We have the perfect kit for you to keep warm and comfortable, with technical clothing that’s packed full of features.

So what is the best way to achieve optimum warmth and comfort? Fleece and lightweight insulated jackets are the answer! Layering is key – an age-old tip that hikers swear by. Thankfully you don’t have to pile on numerous layers of clothing and can instead opt for 3 smart pieces of kit – a base, a mid and an outer – which work together for ultimate comfort.

So, which are the best pieces for this chilly time of year? Lightweight insulated jackets are perfect to throw on during a cold snap to quickly warm you up. Our best selling Compresslite III vest is ideal for this; it’s a lightweight gilet which provides warmth at your core and can then be packed away into it’s own pocket and used as a pillow for when you travel. Ingenious!

The Venta Lite Hooded Jacket is also a popular choice. It has excellent insulation for its weight thanks to Thermo Elite Hybrid technology and its no wonder our brand ambassadors such as Pip Stewart, Alice Morrison and David Love swear by this piece and pack it away for their travels around the world.

For an alternative warmth layer? A fleece – and this one is also good for the planet too. The Craghoppers Corey V (men’s) and Miska half zip (women’s) are partially made from recycled plastic bottles, and the super-lightweight fabric is surprisingly soft too. The half-zip add stylish detail and offers a little ventilation for a sudden change in temperature, without having to take the whole fleece off. Available in a range of colours, there’s a perfect shade for everyone!

Trousers should never be overlooked for any Spring/Summer travel wardrobe. Stretchy, breathable fabric will keep you comfortable whether you are indoors or outside. Our best selling Kiwi Pro Trouser II for men and women are packed with features, including RFID shield pocket (to protect from fraud), SolarShield to guard against the sun’s rays (UPF40) and Smart Dry for protection against light showers. The Wash and Wear technology will ensure they are easy to look after on any trip.
