The Craghoppers Nosi Atoll is an attractive looking, comfortable top with a really quite flattering cut. I'm a pretty standard size 12 and was wearing the size 12 which fitted well.
I've worn the Nosi on a number of long day walks - on occasion during some quite hot weather - and I thought that the fabric wicking was pretty good.
I was also pleased to see that the Atoll has a collar which was really useful in protecting the back of my neck and a zip front which helped in venting.
The anti bacterial treatment does indeed mean that the Atoll can be worn quite acceptably for a number of days - so it will be handy for multi-day camping/travel trips. I haven't yet worn it in particularly 'buggy' terrain so can't claim to have really tested out the insect repellancy.
But it does wash well and dries very quickly. So far - after multiple wears and washes - it seems to be wearing quite well too.
The Craghoppers Nosi Atoll is a versatile, good-looking top. It's certainly a great option for walking throughout the spring/summer/autumn in the UK - perhaps under a fleece for cooler days or on its own when hotter.
