Mens Technical Outdoor Clothing

Alpkit Outdoor Clothing is designed to exacting standards. Technically superior even in the most extreme conditions, and to perform just as we say it will. Because its sold direct from us to you, with minimum fuss and no-retailer mark-ups, the finest technical clothing doesn't have to come with a high street price-tag.

We work with suppliers signed up to the Ethical Trading Standard - no child labour, good working conditions. We use organic cotton and source animal based materials using the most humane method: our down comes from non-live plucked , non-force fed animals and merino comes from non-mulesing farms. And all clothing comes with our 3 year alpine bond. Which means everyone can afford to buy the right kit, to get out there and have fun, all year round.

Outerlayer defence against the buffeting elements

We deliberatley choose to frequent places with biting winds, penetrating hails, gelid snows and drenching rains. To survive we create comforting little micro-climates around our body. Whether you are being buffeted by the wind or you want to shut out the rain, the outerlayer is your ultimate barrier of defence.

Fleece Mid-layers for comfort and warmth

Warm, comfortable, easy to care for and affordable: the bottom line is fleece just works. Akita has a smooth outer face and super soft back with just a touch more wind resistance than your regular fleece, and comes in a full zip jacket style with two hand pockets. Mamalute is kind of a wolf in sheep’s clothing; the outer is a lovely heather knit which looks like it could be wool but is in fact polyester, and the inner is a more regular looking fleece. The combination is a reassuringly warm and weighty hooded jacket that, let’s face it, you’re probably going to want to keep for best. The Fondo merino full-zip jersey is luxuriously soft and comfortable
