The Craghoppers Atoll has become one of my favourite walking tops over the last few months.
It's good looking and fits well having good body and sleeve length. I've also found it to be really very comfortable next to my skin.
I've been wearing it during some really quite hot (for the UK) summer weather on a variety of walking trips. It wicks well and I've found that I've been able to wear it for a few days without it getting too 'pongy' - so I assume the antimicrobial treatment has been doing its job.
There's also a really good collar which I always look for in a summer walking top. I also like the half zip opening which provided a bit of extra flexibility for ventilation.
It washes easily and dries quickly. Unfortunately, after some pretty extensive use, the fabric is now starting to show some signs of wear; some of this may be damage caused by the velcro on my map case although some looks like more general wear and tear.
The Craghoppers Nosi half-zip Atol is a a flexible, good looking top that is great for casual summer walking or general leisure wear. The insect repellancy feature (only tested to a limited extent in our UK based evaluation) make it also a good option for trips to more exotic locations.
