Great buy for price

I have walking for over 25 years and this is my best ever buy for price!!!I have used this for a one wild camp high up in the lakes full loaded it did feel comfy on only having a tee shirt on, despite its not so padded hip belt which was a concern when I first bought it, so yes very comfy on. Nice one guys

Excellent product even if it were twice the price. Great fit and feel with nice detailing and features such as the deep zip and thumb loops. Fit is spot-on, I'm a 41-42" chest and the Large has just a little slack without being loose or baggy. This is quite a warm and durable top, I wore it on an ascent of The Glyders on a hot day and found it a little too warm but it would be perfect as a single layer on a cool or mild day. Nice colour too (Nemo), so great for a post-hike pint at the pub. Nice job Alpkit

Bigger than you think!

Very well made and I can fit my sleeping mat, bivvy bag and down sleeping bag in no problem (your mileage may vary of course). Fits under my handle bars a treat too (flat bars) -- a very satisfied customer.

Excellent quality merino, well-made, great fit

I bought this as part of the baselayer bundle (1 short, 1 long sleeve for £55) so it was even better value. Very impressed by the quality of the fabric, the stitching and the style. The aubergine colour is exactly that - aubergine - and the weight is light but not see-through. The sleeves on the short sleeve version are just above the elbow, which I like, and the neckline is perfect, not too low to be work as a top layer. I wore this on a warm and windy walk up Pen-y-ghent, under a windproof jacket which can get a bit sweaty. The baselayer was incredibly comfortable, not one itch from any part of it, and I finished the walk in as non-smelly condition as I started it. I'd be happy to take this on a 4 day trip as my only baselayer.

Looks great

The bag is simple but looks suitably tough with nice attention to detail. Good stitching and great zips and straps. I'm ordering another one.

Awesome lite low cost option, recommend

Was doing a 1000k Bikepacking Event in New Zealand, had a bigger seat bag but wanted to go smaller, lighter = faster. Know this isnt really promoted to have heavy use by itself but used it for the event and worked awesomely! Did leak a little but that was after 10hrs riding in the wet and by the end of the event did have a small tear on the daisy chain loop where sat between the seat rails but considering the use i'm happy. Will get it repaired and think will just run an extra webbing loop around the bag and seat rails but not the daisy chain just to give it a bit of extra support for next years 1100k mission. Oh yeah, i used it for training missions beforehand.

Flatiron Knife, fork and spoon set

This kit is as the caption above suggests the bees knees! Light as a feather compared to the similar steel set it slips neatly away into a side pocket ready for next time and the carabiner keeps the whole set tickety boo! Everyone who sees me using the set is amazed particularly by the weight! Some have an issue with the "mouthfeel" of the titanium which is why I would rate it as a 4 star for general but it has never been an issue for me

Great bit of kit

Just got back from a weekend camping on Dartmoor. My kids have inherited my ME and Multimat sleeping mats and I decided to give the Numo a go. It's a great bit of kit..very comfortable and packs down very small.. I didn't have to allocate space for it (as I have with my previous sleep mats) as I knew I'd be able to find space for it somewhere. Plenty long enough (I'm 6 ft) and whilst it looks narrow I found I didn't roll off it as much as I do with my other mats.
In summary, it packs down great, insulates you from the ground well and is comfortable.

We came across a lonely AlpBear in Ruddy Gill on Scafell Pike on Saturday night just gone (23rd July 2016) so we took him with us to the summit and then he accompanied 4 lovely ladies to Snowdon for their last mountain on their National 3 peaks challenge. He went on his own way after that after some cuddles and peanut butter!

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?
