Massive thanks to the Alpkit family for putting on such a show, it really was a top weekend with great people, going nice places, doing good things! Can't wait for BSO2017

Love it

Had the coat for about a month now and have tried and tested it in a range of conditions from low to high energy activities - it's kept my dry and comfortable throughout. Very happy and would thoroughly recommend.

A bit about the fit - I went for a size medium and am 6ft with an athletic build, the fit is snug but not too tight, with enough space for a fleece midlayer. I have quite long arms and often struggle to find a medium sized coat which properly fits, I'm happy to report that the Balance does and the handy elasticated cuffs mean I can roll them up if I get a bit toasty.

Great price for a top item

Used this bad boy on a recent wild camp in the lakes recently am very impressed its similar to my jet boil zip but at nearly half the price, am not one of those gear testing freaks who times it racing to the boil with my jet boil zip times to short for all that carry on.So its a winner nice one guys.

Used on the RAB MM last weekend

Just used my new Alpkit Ordos 2 on the RAB Mountain Marathon. It worked well keeping us dry during very heavy rain. Very light well made tent. Porch is a little small and could do with coming down to the ground to prevent wet shoes, but thats a minor point.

This bag will last longer than I will...

This is a great bit of kit. The main zip is almost hermetically sealed when closed, and the straps tuck well out of the way. You can even remove them. This is a Do Anything, Go Anywhere bag. It swallowed a weekend's mountain biking gear, including the Camelbak and helmet. Smart enough for day-to-day use, but tough enough to cope with plenty of bouncing around. Looking forward to trying it out on a microadventure or two - nice and stealthy. Straps are pretty comfortable, and I like the grab handles on the end too. I think it will also do well on the motorbike in the rain, as the zip would be against your back, and is great in itself. Fantastic price as well.

Nice Jacket

The material and stitching on this jacket seems of a good quality.
I am 6ft tall, average build with long arms and the large size fits well in the body and the arms.
It's my personal preference but I would rather use a stuff bag than use the pocket to stow the jacket away .
Over all I am very pleased with this jacket.

Compact

I recently bought this and ally pots, brilliant buy, easily compete with the traditional trangia, and a lot lighter. Overall excellent item

Sam Challis
Best all-rounder

I have not yet experienced the all-new 2016 version, but its predecessor (c.2013/14) was the best sleeping bag I've ever had.

It weighed 900g, went to -12 degrees C and cost 120 odd quid at the time. NOTHING came close to it. Plus it was comfortable and spacious enough.

Unfortunately I had it taken from me in a mountain shoot-out in South Africa, so I'm looking forward to getting me hands on the new version.

Why is the new one 150g heavier? Possibly tougher zips?

Whatever the reason I'm sure this one is going to be just as much of a cracker.

Thanks, Alpkit.

Mini Trangia

I normally use a Trangia which is rather bulky and heavy. This stove is only the size of a large mug and weighs next to nothing. If you marry this up with a pot which this will fit inside you have a light weight compact cook set.

Product Tech

Our expertise in bouldering mats
We have been making bouldering mats for 10 years so we think we know a thing or two

High Perfoamance
The single most important thing in a boulder mat is the foam. It is the foam that absorbs the impact of falls. I've recently been learning more than is healthy about foam, with a view to improving and redesigning the boulder mat range. So, what makes the perfect bouldermat foam?
