We love this extra layer for waterproofing any of our travels. The Craghoppers NosLife Forrester Jacket Dark Moss has a waterproof rating of 15,000mm plus AquaDry Membrane and NosiLife technology. What's NosiLife technology you ask? NosiLife fabric technology is designed to help keep you safe from biting insects - and the dangerous diseases they spread.

The jacket fuses a supple, insect-protective outer face with natural down fill for effective insulation - a cold weather indulgence that delivers twice the experience.
