Performance down jackets
Warm and packable technical jackets that look good and feel good. A performance down jacket makes sure you're ready and don't get put off from enjoying the outdoors in crisp cold weather.
Whether ski mountaineering in the Pika Glacier or on a frosty morning walk with Alfie the dog, our jackets are at ease with the lightweight micro-rib down jacket and vest which is ideal for fast and light activity. The Filo jacket is a multiple award winning jacket since its launch over 10 years ago. Phantac is our premium goose down jacket for mountaineering, climbing and all those occasions where you just need to shut out the cold weather.
New in 2017 all our down jacket are made with Nikwax RDS Hydrophobic down. Hydrophobic down means it will maintain good temperature retention even when wet. All our down has always been sourced from farms which do not force feed or live pluck their down. We now only use down sourced from farms which meet RDS (responsible down standard) requirements in all our down products.

I was told that lightweight waterproofs wouldn't survive the Spine Race. Well these did, and they were bloody brilliant.
6 days, 268 miles through rain, sleet, snow, and river crossings. These deliver in buckets.
The trim fit cuts back on drag and the material gives just a bit of stretch making them super comfy for running and walking.
The ankle zip goes just high enough to get gaiters/boots (UK13) through without too much faff and the Velcro closures stop the flapping.
These have been through some crap in the last week and the zips and closures are still working perfectly. A bit of absolute top end kit.
You want a pair of tights that you can wear for 6 days on the hoof running along the Pennine way? You want a pair of tights that let you keep 600kcal of trail mix in your left thigh pocket, a spare buff and bodyglide in the other thigh pocket? A pair of tights that have a zipped pocket for camera and phone? Tights that dry quickly below the knee?
These have it all. Probably the best bit of kit that I took on the Spine Race. Peanuts too.
Bought this at the beginning of last summer and it was a constant companion on the hills. Weighs very little and packs small but makes a big difference when the wind blows chill or there are showers/low mist etc. How about a gilet version Alpkit?
Very comfy and does the job
Have now worn this waterproof in 3 full days of rain and it is still beading magnificently with no leakage. Weighs very little and folds small. I am a 41 inch chest and the large fits well if you want a fleece underneath. Only one kangaroo pocket and only available in black - come on Alpkit lets have a choice of brighter colours for the fells
No nonsense backpack.
This is the 3rd bit of kit from Alpkit, and again they have nailed it. A product that works. Packed correctly can hold an entire days kit with ease. It's waterproof with no flapping about cover. It's comfortable and even has a removable pad to sit on when you stop for lunch. Price point is great like all Alpkit stuff. I buy kit on a regular basis and I can guarantee more purchases will be made with Alpkit. Great products, Great company values.
Absolutely love this bag!
I'm a big chap, 6ft 4in, built like a rugby player, so sleeping bags are a pain for me. Never long enough and very tight across my chest. I have now spent a week in Yorkshire over new year and a long weekend in Kent when the temp dropped right down to -7.
So weight first, I can't beleave how small this bag packs down, and it's light enough not to even notice in a full pack. Once it's spread out it soon lofts up and after a cold day working is a delight to climb into. Very nice material and it warmed me up fast and kept me comfortable all night.
I have got used to very tight bags, I hate them but resigned myself to it being unavoidable, well not any more, this bag is huge, has plenty of space to move around and roll round if your a fidgety sleeper like me.
The zips have never caught or stuck ( my pet hate) what more can I say, another great product from alpkit.
Bought this as I got tired of lugging a flask around. Why not buy this for both food and hot drinks. First tried it in Dec top of helvellyn around the -5 wind chill boiled 500ml in a few mins. Had a very happy freind who came with me. This product from Alpkit works as described with no downsides. Well built, light and packable, what more could you ask for.
Had the the sock on today for around a 12 mile walk, very comfortable. Fit your feet great with good structure. Temp was around -2, feet stayed warm with great breathable performance. Great Alpkit equipment again 5*
Mmm nice fit, feel and looking pant
I bought these pants a while ago and first wore them yesterday in Ambleside. Great fit, feel and not the usual 70's flared look. Put them on to keep off the chill as i only had leggings on. walking back to Ambleside from the drunken duck inn they kept my aching legs nice and warm. Can't wait for a downpour to test these pants. Thanks Alkpit for a great product and service.
Very nice indeed
Bought this jacket last week to match the parralax pants. Size M great slimline fit. Tested it in Ambleside last night. Deflected light rain with ease and a few careless spillages of beer. Surprisingly light and kept me warm even though I only had a t shirt underneath.I would recommend this product. Swift service from Aplkit. Already got my eye on more Alpkit gear fir cycling. Thanks.
