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.

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.

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.

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!”

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.”

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!

“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.”
