Craghoppers Introduces New Men’s Outdoor Pro Apparel

New for Spring 2016

Portsmouth, NH (July 29, 2015) – Craghoppers’ new Outdoor Pro Apparel enables consumers to achieve their bucket list with these agile, ultra-light layers as the ultimate performance partners.

The Spring ’16 Outdoor Pro Collection is designed for the elite traveler that needs elite apparel. Outdoor Pro features Craghoppers’ Stretch technology for unfettered freedom of movement during active pursuits. 2-way and 4-way fabrics not only allow unrestricted movement but improve fit and durability as well.

Select Outdoor Pro styles also feature Aquadry technology, guaranteed breathable and waterproof, and ClimaPlus technology, Craghoppers’ proprietary advanced insulating, compactable layer.

“Sometimes an expedition or adventure can mean encountering some pretty harsh and changeable conditions,” says Lindsey Hayes, CEO Craghoppers North America. “Our travel apparel offers proven travel performance and features in silhouettes, lighter weights, packability and trusted protection.”
