Craghoppers is a legacy name in British hiking. While many new and flashy names come and go, everyone knows that if you see someone wearing Craghoppers on the trail, they mean business. A hiker in Craghoppers gear is a hiker that knows what they're doing.

While women's hiking clothes have come on leaps and bounds when compared to a few decades ago, many companies have still got a long way to go when it comes to putting female style as a priority. This is why we're so pleased to find such a varied range in Craghopper's female trouser range, with styles made as much for the street as the hike as well as styles made with only the gnarliest trails in mind.

Craghoppers is a company as strong in its theory as it is in its style, the central focus across all of Craghoppers’ trouser collection is protection. A good pair of hiking trousers not only protects you through weather, bugs and UV damage for one season either, they can be trusted to carry on doing so for many years to come.

We tried out the new range of women's trousers from Craghoppers, check out what we thought below....

Nosilife Fluerie Trouser

These trousers caught our eye straight away because of their street style cut and design.

These trousers almost look like a cigarette pant instead of a traditional hiking trouser. The slim cut and figure hugging look mean that they will be as stylish in a bar as they will be useful on a trail.

"Fleurie provides Nosilife protection from bugs plus protection from UV rays (50 UPF)"

While the Fluerie's might look like they're made of chic and sturdy cotton, in reality they're actually incredibly stretchy and bendy, perfect for scrambling up rocks and string long on those longer trails. They're also hiding five different hidden pockets, for all the essentials.

Made from a soft and stretchy material the Fleurie provides Nosilife protection from bugs plus protection from UV rays (50 UPF). They’re available in either navy blue or white and both colour options come with a plaited woven belt.

Noslife Pro Trouser

These are some clever trousers. The fabric has a Nosilife anti-insect treatment included, which lasts a lifetime and will deter any stinging creepy crawlies from attacking you on the trail. The fabric of the material itself is also carefully woven in a way that makes it very difficult for any bugs that do still want to attack you to bite through to your skin.

Just like the Fleurie trousers, the material is made with a good amount of stretch that means that you can have both a nice fitting trouser and the freedom to move on the trail when it comes to bigger stretches and jumps.

All of the pockets are zipped for the forgetful and clumsy adventurers ammong us, including the handwarmer pockets, one of which has a great little lens, goggle or glasses wiper tucked into it.
