Founded in Batley back in 1965 rumour has it that Craghoppers was the first place a certain Mr Chouinard and his Californian climbing buddies used to hit to get their pants before hitting the gritstone of the Peak Distirct. Having been in the outdoors business over 50 years the brand thought it was probably time to take a look back at their archive and bring some of it into the future. Arriving next spring is the first ever Craghoppers Archive collection which features genuine pieces from their 80s/90s back catalogue that have been updated in a very considered, clued up way that’s still retained important details such as the OG colours and logos used back in the day. Which is why after seeing this very special collection Proper got on board and shot the lookbook and video for them right in the heart of Yorkshire.
Featuring breathable, waterproof and microfleece technologies the gear not only looks the part but also encompasses the brands expert outdoor experience, meaning they’ll keep you dry and warm as well as looking incredibly cool. Keep your eyes peeled for more imagery as Craghoppers hit the trade shows to showcase the collection over the coming months, including Jacket Required in London and SEEK in Berlin.
