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.

Great comfy mat that packs small and light

I've used this mat a lot and find it perfect - it packs very small and light, and is easy to inflate and roll up afterwards. it's good at insulating you from the ground and is very comfortable although it may be a bit narrow for wider people. only slight issue is that it is a bit slippery so your sleeping bag can tend to slide around on it - maybe some rubbery strips would help with that...

Viper original review...

I'm sure this guy is a bit better than the original, but figured I'd add my review anyway. Nothing else to do today! I have two of them and so far they're great. I carry lithium batteries as they last longer in colder temps and are lighter to carry as well. Even after falling asleep with my headlamp on one night in dim mode, I awoke at five AM to find her still no where near drained and used the batteries for another two days. Other headlamps I've owned didn't have a memory, I always had to scan through the other light settings to shut it down, ultimately wasting precious battery life. The Viper shuts down with one button push after you've had it on one setting for a period of time. I like the ambient light setting, I used to have to carry another solar lantern to hang for night use that wasn't a crazy blinding, SOS, or dim red light for things like reading and playing cards. Now I've reduced weight by just carrying this little guy.

Figured I'd rate ye little foon...

It let's me eat my food.

If you're not very bright like me and keep wondering why it keeps bending on you- push the little clip down to the spork part...duh...I felt mildly goofy after taking a week to figure this out.

Great, hands down, solid titanium!

This is my only bit of cooking kit while out on solo trips. It's the perfect size for all of my dehydrated meals while holding approximately 2 1/2 cups max water. I can easily fit my snapwire foon, my Trangia, steel scour pad and measuring cup inside! Since most titanium cups/pots only come in 550ml-800ml graduations I really do appreciate Alpkit making an in between option. I've used over open-fire, alcohol and fuel only stoves. Cleans easily with a scouring pad. Titanium cools quickly so I'm usually able to just grab it by the handles no matter what I'm cooking over (don't burn ye-self just because I haven't yet) BUT while that's good, remember titanium doesn't hold heat as well so insulate the mug if you're trying to conserve on fuel by just bringing to a boil and letting sit.

I do wish it came with built in measurements on the side, and an insulating kit. Most pre-made options are for other mainstream manufacturers and I'm terrible at DIY!

A good entry level bivvi bag

As stated in the title, the Hunka is a great entry level bag. With that being said it's a bit hard to get into. A simple half length waterproof zipper would be something I think most people would happily pay extra for. Also purchase a head-net! It's moderately lightweight, sometimes I simply use it to keep condensation off my down quilt. Thinking about adding a few mods to it myself. I do think this is a great buy for someone starting out in the bivvi option. If you want to keep your gear inside the bivvi with you, I'd opt for the XL option.

Really wanted to love this little guy...

...however I was left with a piece of gear that would only perform about 1/4 of the time. Not necessarily something you want to rely on. Long story short I had tested upon first receiving, then again before a trip to Oklahoma, well it worked fine when I first received (did not over-thread and used with proper fuel), but before leaving I always test gear thoroughly. It wasn't working. I dismantled and noticed that it seemed to have some residue build-up (from one time use!) so I cleaned and reassembled. I purchased new canisters and the Kraku fired right up. Left the next morning, stopped for a meal...hasn't worked since. It's just sitting in my gear closet. I've messaged Alpkit about the issue and they said they've had other's reporting the same issue over here in the US, but can't replicate it themselves. I've looked at the two different canisters marketed by Coleman in the US and UK, they look significantly different in design and possibly threading. So while this is no doubt an excellent product, exceptionally lightweight, I wouldn't recommend to American buyers. I feel Alpkit should make this compatibility issue known. I purchased as part of the Micro-adventure bundle so feel a little bummed out I'm left with an item that doesn't work properly.


Excellent quality and surprisingly warm. Compresses very small. The foot end when cinched up tight is actually warmer than normal down bags of equivalent fill as it encases the feet very well. Have used it successfully over the top of an ALPKIT Cloudcover in conjunction with a down jacket to have toasty legs. Having a choice of horizontal or linear baffles on top is a great idea as you can offset with the Cloudcover baffles eliminating any cold spots. The only downside is that when the foot end is closed up it is very short. I am 5' 7'' and it only came to hip level. ALPKIT need to add an extra baffle for an additional 6' of length. Interestingly if you leave the foot end open it can be used as a kind of very effective torso sleeve from the armpits to the knees. Interesting product and if a little longer with maybe an integral zip to join to an ALPKIT down jacket they could be onto a real winner for lightweight enthusiasts.

I'll never be cold again

Ok, It's my first "proper" outdoor activities bit of clothing, so I can't compair it with what else is out there, but the clever design features are self-evident, like the little folded over bit of material at the top of the zip so the nasty cold metal doesn't touch your face. I was wearing a jumper under my normal outdoor jacket, had to take it off, too hot. Just sat outside in the cold October Scottish evening, drinking a coffee and grinning like a loon. Hurry up and get your winter stock in, I'm coming back for more!

Can we see a kit list and more about the bike?

Makes me feel like a UL ninja

How very rude of me, I bought this ages ago and never bothered to sling a review onto the website.... shame.

This is the perfect ultralight cooking and sipping companion. I purchased a separate meths stove that fits inside along with a wind shield and now this cup follows me everywhere.

It brews well and doesn't give a metallic taste to your beverage of choice and because of the super efficient heat transfer of titanium it means after your drinks finished brewing you only have to worry about the drink scalding your mouth not the cup burning your lips... anyone who's ever used a steel cup on a stove will know exactly what I'm talking about here haha

It packs away and takes up so little space and weighs practically nothing. The mesh bag is a good fit and shrugs off dirt well, it also doubles well for grabbing the mugs handle which sometimes get a wee bit toasty but soon cool once taken off the stove.

only other thing I can think to add is that it cleans up well but let's be honest we all like the outside of our camping cookware to look a little charred because it proves that you use it and your not just a collector of very nice kit.

And in conclusion that's exactly what this is, we all spend a fortune on tents, sleeping bags and mats and a plethora of other camping kit but sometimes it's the little items that change the expariance and really make you smile. This is one of those items and I thoroughly recommend it ^_^
