Alpkit gear in action on the GR92 in Spain

Jennifer hiked 90 km along the GR92 through Catalona in Spain, from Portbou to Ulldecona along the Mediterranean. Hurrah for Jennifer!

"Hi Guys

I’ve just returned from 3 weeks hiking the GR92 on the Costa Brava in Spain. We kitted ourselves with the Alpkit bivvy bags (XL) and slept beautifully on cliff-tops surrounded by wild rosemary and lavender, overlooking the glorious Mediterranean.

The bivvy bags are fab: lightweight, spacious, quality materials, well-designed. Not typical weather but the only photo of me sitting in the bivvy bag. Taken in Banyuls s/Mer just before the Spanish border.  

Just waiting for the next adventure.

Thanks again,

Jennifer

Thanks so much for these Jennifer. It's always lovely to hear about customers adventures and yours sounds idyllic. You have made everyone in the office very jealous, here's to many more!

Inspiring for all ages.

This is an inspiring trek for people of all ages especially, it appears, using a minimal amount of equipment.
