NosiLife Cargo

RRP £60 Tar­get price £35 If you love pock­ets, you’ll love these. In fact you could ex­am­ine the NosiLife Car­gos for quite some time be­fore find­ing all of them. In to­tal there are nine: two are zipped and two are al­most hid­den in­side the cargo pock­ets. The left cargo pocket can just squeeze half an OS Ex­plorer map in­side, enough so it won’t fall out any­way. It also con­tains a de­tach­able dry­bag large enough to fit a smart­phone. That’s a re­ally neat idea. Craghoppers’ Nosilife sub-brand is ded­i­cated to fend­ing off bit­ing crit­ters, with a re­pel­lent treat­ment worked into the yarn. They are also coated with UPF50+ sun block, mak­ing them es­pe­cially use­ful in sum­mer. Def­i­nitely check the fit be­fore you buy though; I’m of av­er­age height but I found the legs too short, stop­ping above the an­kles. They were also tight around the thighs, which re­stricted my move­ment on steep as­cents some­what. So you may want to try a size larger than you nor­mally would. If these fit, they will both walk and travel beau­ti­fully. MP
