Care, Repair and Guaranteed for Life

Craghoppers want you to get the most from your clothing so that you can enjoy your adventures more. Craghoppers also want to be more considerate towards the planet and ensure that, collectively, we try to minimise our impact on the environment. So, whether that is reducing the number of times you wash a garment and keeping to a low temperature or getting that extra wear out of a jacket by having the zip repaired, Craghoppers have got your back!

Care for your clothing, and for the planet

Craghoppers’ travel and outdoor wear is mindfully made, built to last and designed for minimum maintenance: perfect for the rough and tumble of the trail. You’ll probably be as keen as we are to spend more time adventuring and less time doing the laundry – especially if it also means using our planets precious resources more responsibly. By following a few of the simple care instructions, you’ll get more wear out of your clothing while doing your bit to conserve energy and water, reducing climate impact.

Wash at 30 degrees, preferably with a mild biodegradable laundry soap or laundry egg. Don’t use bleach or fabric softener and close all fastenings (including hook-and-eye strips) to prevent rubbing and wear and tear. Only wash clothing when absolutely necessary: a bit of dirt is a badge of honour! Brush off mud and clean splashes with a sponge rather than putting your garments through a full machine wash. You’ll conserve water and reduce wear and tear.

Put away your iron – as long as you smooth and fold your Craghoppers gear before storing it, you’ll have no need to wield the iron which means you can do your bit for energy conservation without lifting a finger! Craghoppers everyday outdoor wear doesn’t need dry cleaning, so give it a miss and splash your cash on more pleasurable pursuits.

Drying your kit – dry your garments on a clothesline or airer, where possible. Line drying saves energy, reduces environmental impact and prevents fading. Only use a tumble dryer as a last resort, for as short a time as necessary and on a low heat setting.

Re-proof, occasionally – if your waterproof outdoor wear has a durable water-resistant (DWR) finish, you’ll need to replenish it when water droplets stop ‘beading’ on the fabrics surface. Use a spray on or wash in re-proofer when necessary – usually no more than once a year (depending on how often the item is worn).

Filter out fibres – when clothes are washed, they shed microfibres which end up in our drains and waterways. You can limit the release of these particles by popping garments into a filter bag before placing them in the washing machine. It’s a simple and effective way to make a big difference.

Guarantee For Life
