Posted by Neil | July 11, 2011
You’ve poured over the paperwork. Planned your journey down to the last detail. Packed your passport.
But have you really thought of everything?
Taking the right gear on a trip to anywhere is just as important as any of the minutiae that comes naturally when a big adventure is in the offing.
Whether it’s battling the elements on Everest or tromping through a tropical rain forest, you can never spend enough time thinking about the protective clothing that will be an essential part of your journey.
In this fourth part of our Gear-Zone Travel Guide, we look at what you’ll need if you’re heading for some of the hottest climates in the world, and how vitally important it is to be prepared.
We’ve already discussed the dangers of mosquitoes – see our earlier Blog – and how crucial it is to protect yourself on your travels.
Craghoppers’ NosiLife range of clothing is a must for hot climates, and goes a long way towards helping you combat insect bites when the temperatures rise. Repellents built into the fabric stop disease-bearing insects in their tracks.
In addition, Craghoppers are renowned for the high UVF qualities of their clothing, protecting you from the harshest of the sun’s ultra violet rays.
If you’re travelling to tropical climates, it is vital to wear anti-mosquito clothing. Craghoppers offer shirts and trousers which will give you a lifetime’s protection against the diseases these deadly insects carry.
And not only but also…Craghoppers really are a true travellers’ friend, offering even more than a deterrent against blood-bourn disease. Built-in UVF technology comes as standard, and cooling collars on their shirts provide an additional layer of protection with a flip-up action that protects the vulnerable back of the neck.
With Craghoppers, you beat the bugs, shrug off the sun – and in addition it’s simplicity itself to wash and dry your clothes ready for whatever the next day brings….
Even in the most challenging of hot climates, Craghoppers will be with you every step of the way.
Check out their travel shirts – like the NosiLife Long Sleeve Shirt and the women’s NosiLife Darla Short Sleeve, and their trousers and shorts, for example the NosiLife Cargo Trousers and Cargo Shorts. .
