Craghoppers sent over their latest shirt the Sauda Long Sleeve Shirt, we had the Brown Combo version which was checked with green, black and brown lines. There’s also the Grey Combo which is slightly lighter.
Four key features to point out from the shirt.
- The coller has an extra flap of fabric, which when flipped up provides extra protection for your neck.
- On the shirt breast theres a hidden zipped pocket which keeps the contents safe.
- Two dying loops on the inside help you hang it up

Overall a great product and it looks pretty good too. Which is really important for travellers and backpackers. With limited space you need to have clothes that can be used for multiple activities and occasions. The Sauda shirt can be used trekking during the day, washed and then used at night as smart shirt for going out. The fabric’s tough and with a lifetime guarantee it should last for your entire trip.
