Craghoppers started making clothing specifically designed for the outdoors back in 1965. A group of guys in the North of England were planning to climb Everest and wanted gear to withstand the harshest of conditions, so they researched and designed fabrics that would protect them from the extreme cold. This was the birth of Craghoppers.

The UK based company became partners of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in early 2013 and sealed the deal with a trip to visit the Karisoke Research Centre in Musanze. Ahead of the trip, the team shipped over 51 cartons of new uniforms that kitted out 150 staff members including those based in the KRC and the rangers out in the field everyday. Craghoppers hope that their fundraising efforts and donations of kit will equip the Dian Fossey teams to continue their fantastic conservation efforts and to educate many future generations.
