Alpkit The Short Story

There was a time when we had a lot of time free, so we stumbled into the outdoors. We worked in an outdoor shop, saved some cash, and got ourselves kitted out. We travelled, did some routes and life was good. Then our kit started falling apart, we were no longer students and we realised the cost of replacing it. As we waited to pick up yet another x-xtra large fleece in the sales we patched up our waterproofs and wore an extra jumper in our smelly sleeping bags.

During this time we realised that the passing years had taught us something, we had the experience to create something new.

And somewhere therein lays the real story of how Alpkit.com™ was born. Born out of the passion for outdoor activity and not accepting the costs involved in getting technical clothing and equipment as superior as the best in our sacks. Four ordinary people trying to make some thing extraordinary. And why Alpkit.com™? it's just a name... we go to the alps, we climb, we ride, we paddle, we swim, we run, we board, we visit our in laws.. we produce kit.. we didn't want it to be complicated.

Outpost 3. The Alpine Issue. Obviously
make short winter days last forever

Outpost is our in house magazine, a chunkier version of our normal newsletters and a distillation of all things Alpkit. For Issue 3 we went to the Alps; we drove, we slept, we drove some more, we camped, we ran, we rode, we climbed, we went up, we rode back down, we had some ice cream, we had amazing coffee, we started in the valley, we went to the summit, we celebrated with a couple of beers, we slept some more and then we drove home... we can't wait to go back. This is just a taste of what we got up to... more to come.
