Over the past couple of weeks, we have been lucky enough to put the Craghoppers collection to the test including footwear, waterproof trousers, and fleeces. And we’ve been pretty impressed with everything we have tried so far. However, a standout piece for us in the Craghoppers range is the Anderson Cagoule waterproof jacket. It is an outdoor lifestyle orientated jacket that looks good but will also perform on the side of mountains this spring and summer if the weather doesn’t play ball!

What would we use it for?

We received the Anderson Cagoule ahead of our recent trip to the West of Ireland and we used it throughout that trip. We wore it up mountains as well as to dinner! Since the trip, the Craghoppers Anderson Cagoule has been a regular piece that we have been reaching for our day-to-day outdoor excursions.

We use it as a windbreaker on a chillier day as well as a reliable waterproof layer for less intense hill walks on showery days.

Why do we like it?

We like the Craghoppers Anderson Cagoule as it is a breath of fresh air. The Anderson Cagoule is a welcome break from the intense hillwalking and mountaineering rain jackets that we often see. The jacket is also made using some recycled materials which is a great step forward. Craghoppers have been making huge changes in recent years to their production to incorporate as many eco-friendly initiatives as possible into their business.

Who would we recommend it to?

We would recommend the Craghoppers Anderson Cagoule to three categories of outdoor enthusiasts.

  1. The keen outdoor enthusiast that does not want to always be wearing their good Gore-Tex pro mountaineering jacket for the light showers we experience on a day-to-day basis.
  2. The casual outdoor enthusiast that wants good protection from the rain, doesn’t need the bells and whistles that come with a more expensive jacket, and wants to look a bit more retro and vintage on the trails.
  3. The eco-warrior. If you are or you know someone who is very environmentally conscious, Craghoppers Anderson Cagoule could be a great rain jacket for them!
