Craghoppers started making clothes specifically designed for the outdoors back in 1965. A group of guys in West Yorkshire were planning to climb Everest and wanted gear to withstand the harshest of conditions, so they researched and designed fabrics that would protect them from the extreme cold. All their preparation paid off as they successfully reached the summit of Everest. This was the birth of Craghoppers.
Based in Manchester, Craghoppers have continued to develop fabrics and clothes designed to protect their customers, whether the conditions are very hot, or, very cold.
Craghoppers are passionate about pushing the boundaries of fabric technology, recognising that nowadays people have much greater access to travel, all over the world, and at all times of the year. they like to think that whether you're walking in Scotland, watching polar bears in the Arctic, or trampling through the rain forest, they will have designed an appropriate set of gear.
Craghoppers have also been working with Bear Grylls to produce a range of clothes based on the design of his very own gear that he uses in extreme conditions. Craghoppers' innovation and expertise, coupled with Bear's thirst for adventure, have proved to be a rewarding and successful partnership.
Everything that Craghoppers do is the result of a shared passion for travel and the outdoors. They live to travel, and use their knowledge to make sure the products are the best they can possibly be for their customers.
