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.

I recently bought this and ally pots, brilliant buy, easily compete with the traditional trangia, and a lot lighter. Overall excellent item
I have not yet experienced the all-new 2016 version, but its predecessor (c.2013/14) was the best sleeping bag I've ever had.
It weighed 900g, went to -12 degrees C and cost 120 odd quid at the time. NOTHING came close to it. Plus it was comfortable and spacious enough.
Unfortunately I had it taken from me in a mountain shoot-out in South Africa, so I'm looking forward to getting me hands on the new version.
Why is the new one 150g heavier? Possibly tougher zips?
Whatever the reason I'm sure this one is going to be just as much of a cracker.
I normally use a Trangia which is rather bulky and heavy. This stove is only the size of a large mug and weighs next to nothing. If you marry this up with a pot which this will fit inside you have a light weight compact cook set.
I bought this to keep me warm overnight while camping and also to wear day to day in the coldest part of winter. It did its job well while camping, I even got a bit hot and had to strip of some other layers. Doesn't smell after 3-4 wears.
I bought a 12, which is my normal size and it's about right, perhaps a little on the large size but not unpleasantly so. As described, is the right shape to strip down to and not look out of the ordinary. The fabric doesn't look and feel like wool from a distance, it's very fine and smooth and soft.
Washing up bag
Really enjoyed using this washing up bag/bowl. I got the largest one and while camping in a group it was excellent for slinging in dirty crockery. Then it could all be transported to the sink easily. We ended up using it as a second sink for rinsing during the washing up process, then it was super easy to bring all back to the tents.
Would also be good for washing small children or dogs!
Nice little set
I've enjoyed my haap cookset and have used it 3 times now. The lid fits 6-8 sausages as a frying pan, the pan does a good amount of pasta. The little kettle is cute and does exactly 2 mugs of tea, it boils really fast on a camping stove. Despite crusted burnt on fat the frying pan came up clean after a short soak. Am very happy so far.
Envy of all
Bought for my son (14) on a school trek in Norway. Apparently he was he envy of all, as he had the most comfy, lightweight may if all his mates. Borrowed it myself last weekend and loved it. Very comfy for old women too.
Kepler Velo - Just buy it!
I received the Kepler Velo just before the first long heat wave of this past summer. This as a leap of faith in a company I knew nothing of; simply because I liked their story. And, the jersey was more than reasonably priced, even at full price.
So I wore it seven days straight on my 24 mile commute in 30C temps just to see. It is just brilliant. The weight is not too heavy, not too light. It wicks, it breathes, air actually circulates. At the end it was a bit crusty from salt, and not a wiff. None of which can really be said about the sale price synthetic jerseys I'd bought from a high end brand a few weeks before. The recurring pong of these making me search for merino again, which led me to Alpkit.
Those other jerseys have not seen light of day since.
So happy am I with this jersey's form, function and quality I've purchased several other bits of kit.
I'll be purchasing the long sleeve version very soon for the winter commute, and both jerseys will most definitely be on my back and in my pack for a charity walk down the Thames Path this coming mid-November.
Thank you Alpkit team for your thoughtful design and quality make!
Good........but not great quality
I'm on my third one now. The light is great in that it is one of the few budget head torches with a true white light. It's bright and clear and easy to use, the only downside is the build quality, each of the ones I have owned the lid has snapped at the battery compartment on changing batteries. Not a great design it has to be said........ But then, at this price it is what it is !
Another brilliant bit of kit from alpkit! light, bright, can be hung or stands alone. Exactly what ive been looking for.
