Choosing The Best Trousers for You

Looking for a new pair of outdoor trousers? You’re in the right place. We’re here to talk you through the different types of trousers available, the seasons and activities they’re best for, and some of their key features. Interested? Keep on reading our guide to choosing the best walking trousers for you.

How to choose outdoor trousers

When it comes to choosing the right pair of walking trousers, there’s no cutting corners. So, there are a few factors you’ll need to consider, including:

All Craghoppers trousers are designed with comfort in mind, using stretch materials, and as versatile as possible (trust our customers who wear them from bush walks to rock climbing to travelling and even to the office!). Therefore, let’s look at how to choose the right trousers according to the climate.

The Best Trousers For Hot Weather

First things first, let’s talk about the best walking trousers for summer. For treks in the heat, you’ll want lightweight, breathable, and technical trousers. Here’s what we suggest.

Whether you’re exploring the jungle or just enjoying a day of sun closer to home, choose a pair of NosiLife walking trousers. The key feature of this particular pair is the anti-insect technology built into the fabric. Without the need for nasty chemicals, these trousers keep irritating insects like mosquitos, ticks and midges at bay.

In addition, our NosiLife trousers are some of the best walking trousers for hot weather because of their sun-protective quality. With UPF 40+ protection, rest assured your legs will be safe from the sun’s powerful UV rays. Finer details like zip’n’clip pockets for valuables, RFID pockets, and drying loops make these trousers the perfect travel companion.

Next up, we have the NosiLife Pro Convertibles. These zip-off trousers are perfect for warm days when the sun keeps going in and out. To stay comfortable all day, simply zip off the ends of the trousers to convert them into walking shorts—leaving you feeling cool and fresh when out on the trail.

What’s more, with our added Odour Control technology, you won’t have to worry about getting your sweat on during tough hikes.

The Nosilife Cargo & Convertible trousers are perfect for those needing quick-drying and sun-protective capabilities—like anglers when wading. These pants will keep you protected from the sun all day long and will not get heavy and drag you down while wading in rivers or the ocean. They will quickly dry out as soon as you’re out of the water. The convertible version can also be used as a short only.

Best Hiking Trousers For All Year Round

Kiwi Pro trousers are the choice of hikers worldwide. If you are looking for all-year-round trousers, you can’t go wrong with these. They offer total comfort, durability, an expert fit, water repellence, and UPF 40+ sun protection, perfect for any adventure. They are available for men and women, of course. Nifty features like a sunglasses cleaning wipe in the pocket round off this comfortable pant.

Active ladies who prefer a tight fit will love Craghoppers’ leggings, which were designed to stretch, jump, and scramble with you. Like Kiwi pants, the leggings come with an EcoShield DWR finish and zipped pockets to secure small valuables. Thermal versions are available for cold conditions.

Getting Your Trousers Ready For Winter

On cold days and at high altitudes, the main priority is obviously keeping yourself warm. Craghoppers has you covered even on chilly days with many styles made for winter adventures.

Men’s Softshell Pants are made from fabric that blocks wind from penetrating the garment, significantly reducing the effects of wind chill. With brushed fleece on the inner side and a plant-based water repellent, these trousers will keep you warm and dry in any weather.

Ladies can explore the winter outdoors in Compression Thermal Leggings or in a winter version of our popular Kiwi Pro trousers. In addition to all favorite features, Kiwi Pro Expedition Winterlined Trousers have a brushed lining that provides additional warmth.

Do you wish to winter-proof your existing outdoor wardrobe? Making your walking trousers warmer has never been easier—add Merino Tights as the insulating layer under your favourite Craghoppers trousers, and you are ready to go. Thanks to their natural moisture-wicking and anti-odour properties, the Merino Tights will help you regulate your body temperature, ensuring you stay fresh and dry all day.

And there we have it! Now that you know how to choose the perfect walking trousers, it’s time to optimize your adventure by getting yourself a pair of Craghoppers trousers.

Wilderness International: Protecting The Last 2.8%

For Wilderness International, it all started with the enthusiasm for forests with huge trees and their desire to preserve wild nature for future generations. Since 2008, they have made it their mission to protect wilderness areas from vanishing forever and preserve them for future generations.

Protecting the last intact habitats

Their vision is to protect the last 2.8% of our planet’s remaining intact habitats by 2050. The Wilderness International team dedicates its daily work to the legally secure purchase of ecologically valuable and acutely threatened wilderness areas around the world in order to protect them in perpetuity, engaging with local communities and governments to secure the land for generations to come.

Their headquarters are situated in Dresden, Germany, but with sister foundations in Canada and Peru, they are well placed to run the three pillars of the NGO – Protection | Education | Research – with one great goal: to protect the last unique wilderness areas forever.

Protect your own piece of rainforest

Working across areas of land in Canada & Peru, they create georeferenced aerial images using drones. Each sq. meter is then uploaded to their website and provided with specific geo coordinates to match that piece of land. These sq. meters can be purchased by individuals or companies, and those that purchase receive a personalized certificate stating the exact coordinates of the land that they are protecting.

To protect your own piece of rainforest, visit their website here.

Defense from pesky insect

Craghoppers were delighted to accompany the team on a research trip to Peru and find out firsthand more about their mission whilst kitting the team out in NosiLife clothing, meaning they were defended against the many biting insects that thrive in the Peruvian jungle.

To protect yourselves from pesky biting insects, check out our NosiLife range of clothing here.

Gifts to spark adventure

As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start filling up those stockings with gifts that your adventurous friends and family will adore!

Whatever the outdoor activity, we’ve curated the perfect collection of outdoor gifts to elevate their adventures.

Whether tracking wildlife on foot or bouncing over dusty roads, comfort is key on safari in remote areas. Gift lightweight, quick-drying, and easy-care clothes that block the sun’s harmful rays and keep biting insects at bay. Don’t let the small stuff bug your safari explorer’s next adventure – keep them comfortable and protected so they can focus on spotting the Big Five.

Scrambling up switchbacks and rocky terrain demands durable gear that moves with the hikers. Surprise your favorite trailblazer with abrasion- and water-resistant hiking clothes, sun-protective shirts, and warm top layers tough enough for any trail. Wherever the trail leads, these gifts will keep up.

Jetsetters need versatile, packable gear that simplifies life on the road without sacrificing durability. Cross the durable luggage, practical accessories, and wrinkle-resistant clothes off their wishlist and make your frequent flyer’s next journey to a remote destination a breeze.

Who does not have at least one angler at home? Don’t let the little things hook them on their next reel deal. Protect them from the sun during the long hours on the water with brilliant gifts like lightweight shirts and sun hats, and free their hands with gear like the hip packs loaded with attachments for tools.

Gift your outdoor daredevils with items that add an oh-so-cool factor to their exciting hobby. Our bike bags make chasing personal records more fun. Climbers will push towards new heights with our colorful chalk bags. And let kayakers pursue wilder white waters with our dry bags.

Can’t find something you like? Here is the stuff that everyone loves to receive. These funky accessories will add a great deal of functionality and a colorful touch to any outdoor gear.

What to wear when you live with lions

By Jackie Badenhorst

This is a guest article originally posted on the NHFU website. Text by Nick Roosen, photos by Siena Crawford.

With a lot on their minds —like the subtle art of following carnivorous big cats while dodging vehicle-toppling elephants, venom-induced anaphylaxis, and cantankerous buffalo—Africa-based wildlife film-makers from the NHFU have recently turned their wardrobe choices over to legendary UK clothing company, Craghoppers, to see if their latest line of outdoor gear might be up to everything Africa and the film crew can throw at it.

If you’re someone like me, you’re decidedly groggy as you navigate the first hurdle of the day—“Now, what am I gonna wear?” At face value, it seems like a trivial question, not worthy of dedicating any more than a handful of neurons to in those wee hours. But what if this decision not only determined your level of comfort for the day but also your chances of survival? I’m thinking of you, fire departments, plunging into hellish infernos. Or you, astronauts, braving the brutal vacuum of space. Fire-proof textiles and air-tight space suits make sense for these adventurous spirits, but what about wildlife filmmakers?

Ice-locked continents, scorching deserts, and steaming jungles—these are places where people with apparently limitless patience wait to capture rare and wondrous moments. I can just imagine reading about such a job in the classifieds: “Wanted! A strapping individual, with camera experience, is prepared to operate in environments with multiple hazards, including but not limited to plagues of insects, as well as a myriad of biting, scratching, pummeling or piercing predators.” Fantastic, where do I sign?

It’s fortunate such a rare breed exists, so that those of us who prefer it, can witness lions hunting from the slightly more comfortable vantage point of our living room. And in perhaps Southern Africa’s most epic wilderness—the Okavango Delta—there lives one such team for whom wildlife film-making is not just a job description but a way of life.

Enter the Natural History Film Unit (NHFU), headed by world-renowned filmmaker Brad Bestelink. It’s thanks to Brad and his team that the breathtaking sequences that grace our screens via programs like Surviving Paradise, The Flood, and Africa’s Fishing Leopards offered up by Netflix, National Geographic, and the BBC are possible.

Let me paint you a picture. When Brad’s team heads out into the bush, they know they’ll be living out of their film truck for days at a stretch. In fact, they’re so accustomed to their 2-by-5-meter home that they usually only return to camp for a few hours each week to restock and refuel before heading back to the bush to continue following their animal subjects. Think lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, and crocodiles—all set against the backdrop of the Okavango Delta.

The Okavango is considered to be the crescendo of a natural symphony that first begins with the thunderous roar of rain in the Angolan highlands, then transforms into a soft gurgle of rivers moving inland towards a vast oasis, and climaxes with the countless voices representing some of Africa’s most enigmatic wildlife. But to this idyllic depiction, we must add a few of the not-so-nice elements of Africa’s wilderness…

Bugs, bugs, and more bugs! In the grasslands, like forgotten land mines, lurk ticks waiting to disgorge medical maladies. Blister beetles, biting ants, and malarial mosquitoes—I could go on!

And then there’s the weather. If the Delta had an engine room, the weather would be a key driving force behind the region’s immense richness. It’s what transforms arid landscapes into a land of endless rivers and pools, fringed by rolling grasslands and leafy forests. But the climate also has a savage side.

You can start your day observing insects frozen to their morning perches and, by lunch, sit broiling in sweat under a midday sun. And when it rains, it’s a chronic deluge accompanied by sudden gusts that can topple entire trees. Against the swarms of biting insects and wild weather, the NHFU team is certainly in need of apparel that protects them from the elements.

Craghoppers! A company that is no stranger to equipping ambitious adrenalin junkies, seeking to push the bounds of their imagination and apparel. In 1975, Craghoppers outfitted an expedition team attempting to climb Everest by ascending the face of the mountain for the first time. In 2020, they were chosen as the official kit provider for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. And now, in 2023, deep in the Okavango, Craghoppers cutting edge NOSILIFE technology will face a special challenge. The NHFU crew has been geared up with Craghoppers garments featuring an EPA-approved insecticide duplicated from the chrysanthemum flower. The clothes are specially designed to repel insects, which for one NHFU cameraman, in particular, could be a real game changer.

Meet Rea. Having grown up in the bush, Rea is intensely passionate about African wildlife and sharing its unique stories. But he also suffers from allergies. A single ant bite or wasp sting could prove fatal for him. You could ask him to just change his profession. But the thing is, he simply can’t imagine devoting himself to any other purpose than wildlife filmmaking, and thanks to Craghoppers, it might be that all he needs to do is change his shirt.

So tomorrow morning, as you wipe the sleep from your eyes and stand before your wardrobe pondering the options, at some point, a team of intrepid filmmakers somewhere in the vastness of the Okavango Delta will be doing the same thing. But now the question is—is their brand-new Craghoppers kit up for the challenge?

What to pack for a Gorilla trek in Rwanda

By Jackie Badenhorst

I recently visited Rwanda for a gorilla trekking photographic expedition with Tusk Photo. To say the trip was incredible is an under statement – this experience crept into my heart as one of my most special ever. 

The scenic Volcanoes National park covers 160 km2 of rainforest and encompasses five of the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, namely Karisimbi, Bisoke, Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabyinyo. It borders Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda.

This was my first trip to Rwanda and I was truly impressed with the country. Despite a tumultuous history, riddled with violence and conflict, the people have worked together to build their nation in peace. The people we met, both young and old, were friendly, full of hope and so proud of their country, they welcomed tourists with open arms. 

The trip took place in the beginning of May, toward the end of the long rainy season. The park is open year-round but generally the high season would be June to September, during the dry season. We didn’t get a lot of rain when walking – a few drops now and then, although it did rain at night, making the area muddy the following day. We did however enjoy the cloud cover when trekking – this meant it wasn’t really hot and we good, even lighting conditions for photography. 

We were lucky enough to enjoy 4 gorilla treks during our 5 night stay. This is another benefit of heading there during the low season – as often there are too many people vying for the 96 permits granted per day (which breaks down to groups visiting 8 of the 13 habituated groups daily). There are also golden monkey treks on offer, although we opted for an additional gorilla trek instead.

So how does the daily trek work?

You leave your lodge and arrive at the park headquarters around 6:30/7am, where you are assigned a ranger for the trek. 

This is a well-run operation, with guests enjoying complimentary coffees and drinks while your driver guide arranges your trek for the day, is alotted your park ranger (who leads the trek), as well as the gorilla group you will be visiting.

The park rangers have a quick brief where they tell you about the gorilla family you will be visiting, what to expect when you find them, how to behave when around the gorilla family. From there, you drive to the area where you will begin your trek.

Experienced park ranger, Daniel Niyonsaba
Experienced and knowledgeable park ranger, Daniel Niyonsaba, we really enjoyed his company.

Once you arrive at the starting point, you meet up with porters who will carry your bags during the trek if you need it. These are ex-poachers, now employed to assist tourists on a daily basis. This is a vital initiative for sustainable conservation in Africa – not only do these guys stop their poaching activities but the actually start caring for for these animals’ well-being – as the gorilla’s survival ensures them jobs and resultant food on their table.  

Porters at Volcanoes National PArk
A great group of porters

We had so many cameras that we opted to hire porters. They were really friendly, helpful guys. There were some super muddy sections where every misstep had you sinking your feet and legs into mud. The porters always had a helping hand to get you up and out.  You needed to have hands free to grip and hold, so carrying stuff wouldn’t be ideal. I would recommend hiring a porter – this allowed me to take more equipment than what I would’ve otherwise, as well as extra water, a raincoat etc. 

Back to the trek.. As you head off, you also practice sounds you will make when communicating with gorillas. Basically a ‘we-come-in-peace’ kind of call. 

Beautiful scenery on the trek. Image by Nellie Tromp.

Trek distances vary according to your preference – generally between 3-5km. This is not far but there are some steep sections, so the entire trek could take anything from 4-5 hours. The porters chop through dense sections of vegetation – allowing you to get through with relative ease. As with anything in life, the fitter you are the more enjoyable the activity.

Eventually you meet up with trackers who spend their day with the gorilla group. Here you will leave your bag, take only the cameras you need and head in for an hour with the gorillas.

That first moment I spotted them took my breath away and filled my eyes with tears. It was incredible. I’d always heard how special it was but this far exceeded my expectations.

Selfie with first gorilla group
Obligatory selfie with the first gorilla’s I saw!

We visited the Hirwa, Umubano, Kwitonda and Urwego groups. 

Each group had completely different structures – some more silverbacks, some more youngsters. We found them to be extremely relaxed in our presence.  

No words can do the time spent with gorilla’s any justice – you’ll need to experience this for yourself. All I can do is offer some advice on equipment you may benefit from taking along.

My essentials for the trek:

Photography equipment 

What did I take?

The gorillas are generally within close quarters. You should be around 7m from them but they often come closer to you due to the confined spaces you share, which is great!

By the time we found them each day, they have done their first feed for the day and were resting/grooming/playing – this was wonderful. When they get up to feed they move fast and the photography can be more challenging.

As mentioned above, you have to leave your bag and take the cameras/lenses you want along. The 400 was only used twice for portraits, I mainly used the 70-200mm and 16-35mm. This ensured a wide variety of shots – wide to portrait. I also used my iPhone for a few videos and behind the scenes shots. 

Go check out some of the images I captured on Instagram

This trip is a naturalist’s dream, highly recommended. I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of physical activity, interaction with wonderful local people, plus then the awe-inspiring moments with gorillas. To me, being on foot and in close quarters with wildlife always feels like you’re truly a part of the ecosystem, as opposed to just an on-looker from a vehicle. I find it absolutely thrilling and memorable. 

It is wonderful to see what a country can become with proper leadership and open-minded, proud people. Rwanda is filled with hope – coming from South Africa, I feel inspired by what they’ve achieved. 

Happiest kids I’ve ever seen!

We visited the genocide museum and the Ellen Degeneres campus for the Dian Fossey Gorilla fund on the drive from Kigali to the National Park – both were informative and very much worth the visit. They really give you a good background on the country as a whole, and the plight of gorilla’s over the years.

If you head out, which I implore you to do, may you have as magical a time as I did. Enjoy!

Nosilife Adventure II Shirt – the best outdoor shirt you will ever own

By OutsiderCo.

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you’ll know how difficult it is to find the proper clothing that not only looks good but keeps up with your adventurous lifestyle. Sound familiar? Well, you’ll be happy to hear the quest for the perfect outdoor shirt is finally over.

The Craghoppers Nosilife Adventure shirt is the ultimate travel companion you will ever need, the perfect mix of functionality and good looks.

It is packed with features that make it an excellent choice for any outdoor mission. It is an innovative and highly functional outdoor shirt that protects adventurers from the sun, mosquitoes, and other outdoor elements. And all that with minimal care required.

Sound too good to be true? Let’s look closely at what tricks are up the shirt’s sleeves.

UV protection

Let’s start with the essential feature of this shirt – UV protection. Whether you are hiking in the mountains, fishing on the ocean, or at a dam, the last thing you want is to return home with a sunburn. The Craghoppers Nosilife Adventure shirt takes this worry off your shoulders.

The fabric is treated with SolarShield – a unique UV-protecting material that blocks out 98% of the sun’s UVA & UVB rays, which is our fancy way of saying it keeps you safe from getting burnt.

Nosilife Adventure shirt extended flip-up collar

Moreover, the shirt’s design keeps in mind every vulnerable part of your upper body. The extended flip-up collar that gives your neck extra coverage from the sun has quickly become a popular feature appreciated by many adventurers.

“Wore my Nosilife shirt even for snorkeling in Seychelles with pop collar double popped for protection on the back of my neck. The most versatile outdoor gear imaginable!”

Andrew Beck (IG @andrewbecksa)

Nosilife anti-insect treatment

Imagine you don’t need to constantly re-apply insect repellent to protect yourself from mosquito bites because your shirt does it for you. Sounds good, right?

Anti-insect treatment is another key feature of the Nosilife Adventure shirt, and this treatment lasts the garment’s lifetime, never washing out and polluting our waterways.

The fabric is treated with a safe active ingredient designed to keep mosquitoes and other insects at bay so that you can enjoy your outdoor activities without worrying about mosquitoes’ buzz and the itchy bites that come with them.

Pair the shirt with Nosilife pants and socks, and you have an effective barrier and protection against dangerous diseases like malaria, dengue fever & the zika virus.

In very high-risk areas, use your Nosilife clothing in conjunction with a repellent like a citronella or IR3535 for added protection.

Easy care

Keeping your clothes clean and neat while traveling is now easier than ever.

The Nosilife Adventure Shirt’s lightweight, quick-drying fabric makes it easy to clean and maintain. Gone are the days when you have to iron your shirt to look half decent. Instead, simply dry the shirt hanging on the line or hanger, and you will be ready to go again in no time.

“Nosilife Adventure shirt replaced all my other travel shirts. Unlike the others, it looks great even after hours sitting in a car, and after washing, it dries in no time, and there is no single wrinkle on it.”

Lenka Znamenackova (IG @lenka.znamenackova)

Great fit and comfort

Contrary to popular belief, outdoor clothing can look chic, and the Nosilife Adventure shirt proves it.

It has a flattering tailored cut yet gives you enough freedom to move. Moreover, you can play around with different styling options thanks to the long-sleeve cut and roll-up tab.

Just look at @Lindsaycouper how stunning she looks in her Nosilife Adventure shirt.

On hot days you will appreciate the mesh-lined back yoke that provides breathable ventilation and a cooling inner neck panel that moves moisture out and away. Thanks to these features, the shirt will keep you cool and comfortable.

It’s in a detail

There is more to this shirt than meets the eye. The Nosilife Adventure shirt is packed with small, mostly hidden, but very practical details that you’ll love.

Drying loops

Do you remember the last time you were looking for a hanger to dry your shirt on? Or that moment when the strong wind blew it off the line? That’s not going to happen again. The drying loops are a fantastic practical feature making it easy for you to dry your shirt on the go. Attach to a shower rail in a hotel or twig out in the bush, and voila.

Sunglasses wipe

Yes, the shirt has an integrated microfibre wipe designed to clean sunglasses or camera lenses—finally, no more scratches on your Ray-Ban’s or GoPro.

Practical pockets

The pockets on the chest and sleeve provide plenty of space to keep valuables and other small items on hand, whether a car key, memory card, or lens cover. But then there is a hidden zip’n’clip pocket made to keep your most essential valuables safe and secure!

Nosilife adventure shirt ribbon-style threading for buttons

“My favourite features must be the ribbon-style threading used for the buttons (no way these buttons are ever coming loose), the sunglass cleaner stitched into the bottom of the shirt, and the drying loops which make drying and keeping a “wrinkle-free” shirt a breeze.”

Andrew Beck (IG @andrewbecksa)

Swiss knife of outdoor shirts

The Nosilife Adventure Shirt is like a Swiss knife of outdoor shirts. It replaces mosquito spray, sunscreen, and even laundry service. 

The shirt’s designers thought of everything that outdoor lovers expect from functional clothes, and you can be sure the shirt will perform in any outdoor condition.

But don’t only take our word for it. The shirt has been tested by many adventurers in various conditions, from hot and humid hikes to a cooler evening around a campfire, from dusty desert to overgrown jungle, and even during underground explorations. And it never failed its proud owners.

The fact that the Nosilife Adventure shirt has become a go-to apparel for professionals in the travel and safari industry proves its quality. See for yourself…

“I’ve been using the Nosilife Adventure shirts for a long time and can’t appreciate them enough—such an outstanding, good-quality product.”
