Filoment micro-rib down jacket and vest
The lightweight micro-rib down jacket and vest is ideal for fast and light activity where you want added warmth but don't want to constrict arm movements. It looks good and feels good. Think of it as a zippable sweater with a light DWR coating. Our go-to piece of equipment as it stuffs into a 1l or 2l dry bag but weighs from just 280g with over 100g of down.
We have been making down clothing and sleeping bags since 2005. Our customers have taken our down jackets all over the world; from the Alps, to the Himalaya to Antartica. Some people go around the world, some never stop. Their adventures are our legacy. Find out more about down clothing on our site.

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.
Bear on his travels
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!
Real kit at realistic prices
Firstly I have never left a review for a product.....ever.....but these mats really justify one.
Tossed and turned for ages over which mats to get to replace my old self inflating ones.
Finally settled on these as the specs are better that anything similar on the market and the price is too.
Super comfortable nights sleep even with my 3 year old on his own Dumo next to me - we both slept through to 7 - better than we get at home !
In built pump is a dream takes about two and a half mins to inflate at a leisurely pace and seconds to deflate, goes back easily into bag and I have found that you can use the deflate valve to deflate a little to get extra comfy.
Delivery was quick even to my remote location and people on the phone were really friendly and helpful too.
Great experience overall - a real pleasure !
ps the colour is a nicer blue in reality I think.
Awesome windproof jacket
I needed something lightweight for those longer fell runs to keep the chill out and this is perfect, it even fits in my hand! And the price? Alpkit does it again delivering a top quality product for a fraction of the price of other brands.
Inflatable Repair Kit
Supper fast free delivery!
Good clean up of the puncture zone before applying patch.
Very easy to fit, self-adhesive patches.
Water tight with-in seconds!
Got my balance jacket about two weeks ago. Used it for first time on the waterfall walk at Pontneddfecan, rained all all day and was very humid. The balance performed well and kept me dry and comfy.
I bought this in a bit of a rush and didn't look too closely at the product description. I was looking for a slightly larger waterproof daypack than my current one and reckoned that for the price and as it was by Alpkit, who have never disappointed me, it would be fine. It's just arrived and I have to say I am chuffed to bits. It oozes quality and how they can sell such a well-made, feature rich pack for such a low price I don't know.
Bought these from the Alpkit guys at the Northern Grip festival. Had my eyes onan few different grips but was intrigued by these. Was able to try them out in wet conditions on the Sunday ride. These have excellent grip in the wet and are very comfortable and a really good fit in my hand. Highly recommend!
Fantastic Bags for Organised People
If you're the sort of person who likes everything to be sorted and in its place (or just likes to pack quickly and easily) then these bags are ideal. Good size range and really nicely made as well as being lightweight. One for toiletries, accessories, socks and clothes and everything is easy to find in your pack. Also handy for storing things when not on adventures. Another excellent bit of kit from Alpkit at a brain price!
