Craghoppers – The DofE recommended kit manufacturer of technical clothing for over ten years


Craghoppers is proud to have been working with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for over ten years now and we wanted to share why DofE has partnered with us to provide the best kit for every adventure. Inspired by the desire to explore the world, Craghoppers was founded in Batley, West Yorkshire and has been providing the world with adventure ready clothing since 1965. Our love for the outdoors reaches across the world, across many generations, and we want to continue to share that with as many people as possible.



Products that are guaranteed for life

We’re so proud of the quality of our products that we offer a guarantee for life. That means if your kit ever lets you down then we’ll replace it like for like. If it can be repaired, we can sort that too. All you need to do is keep hold of your proof of purchase and register the product here.

Mindfully Made

We’re also committed to protecting the world around us too. From 2023, we will have recycled 100m plastic bottles to make our products. We are just doing our bit to help reduce waste. We work with independent bodies such as the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to ensure that we can be held to the highest standards when it comes to our garments and processes. We also partner with incredible conservation charities, including the Galapagos Conservation Trust, to support the excellent work they do to protect the environment. We want to make sure that your kit only has a positive impact on the environment, and that you can join us in sharing love for the outdoors with generations to come.

Getting ready for your next adventure

Wondering what to wear hiking? It’s all about having the right layers after all, even in the harshest conditions. It’s easy to work up a sweat once you get going on a demanding uphill hike. Of course, a waterproof is absolutely essential and a staple of any winter kit. The Atlas Jacket, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Collection jacket is a perfect example of a great all-rounder. Lightweight and practical with a neat grown on hood, reflective detail and impressive weather beating performance. Using AquaDry technology which is designed for moderate to heavy down pours.
