I think we're all ready for summer adventures, it's been a looooong winter and we're excited to get out and about more (and further afield). Here's our ultimate list for getting suited and booted for the great outdoors.

The Locke shoes from Craghoppers are great all-day low-level comfort. Perfect for changing into after a days hill walking. The collapsible NosiLife mesh upper provides effective anti-insect, anti-bacterial coverage, while the rubber outsole and EVA midsole offer grippy comfort and traction. Secured with contrasting laces and featuring an interlocking tread for back-to-back storage. Our favourite bits... Recycled laces, EVA midsole. 20% made with ground coffee beans, rubber outsole - 50% made with recycled rubber.

The new Craghoppers CompressLite rucksacks come in brand new colourways and practical sizes - 10, 16 and 22L. Now made from recycled materials, they fit perfectly with the brand's sustainability ethos, whilst still delivering on strength and durability. The outer fabric is made from 45% recycled materials and the PFC free EcoShield plant based water-resistant coating is a valuable additional feature. The inner lining is made from 60% recycled content and the wadding from 100% recycled materials. There has been extra padding strategically placed to add structure, provide more protection to your belongings and be comfortable to wear. Approximately 7 bottles were recycled to make this product.
