Doing your DofE is the first of many adventures in your life. But before you start, there is some planning to do. With an upcoming expedition or other outdoor adventures, you need to be sure you have the right gear for the job. It will make your whole experience so much more enjoyable when you know you will comfortable and your kit is set for the challenge ahead.
Craghoppers’ DofE recommended expedition clothing has been carefully designed with DofE expeditions in mind. All fabrics, finishes and details are there to protect you from the elements, with some added extras you may not have thought of.
A good waterproof jacket is essential, especially in the UK’s unpredictable weather. The Craghopper’s Horizon Jacket offers a whole range of features, including a breathable, lightweight outer layer:
The warmth and comfort of a fleece is ideal for a mid layer. The Strata Jacket is great for wearing around camp when the temperature drops.
The Craghoppers Fusion T-shirt will keep you cool when there is a glimmer of the sun or when you heat up on a hike.
The Traverse Trousers are hardwearing, weather protecting trousers and ideal for expeditions or outdoor walks.
Ever had to walk around in wet trousers? The Ascent Overtrousers are ideal to pack into your rucksack to grab at the first sight of rain.
Craghoppers is a brand committed to creating great products with minimal impact on the environment. All the water repellent finishes on the Horizon, Traverse and Ascent, are PFC (perfluorcarbon) free, which means they are not damaging to the environment.
Craghoppers also offer a guarantee for life on all their clothing, giving you the reassurance that the clothes will last.
