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.

The 'camp at night' photo is amazing!
I bought this and used this earlier in the year and was very happy with it in all ways. the fit was good, brightness, rear light etc. Now I have come to use it again it is not working or sometimes it dioes and then goes off. It's not reliable but I'd like to get another but don't want the same thing to happen again.
Brilliant jacket - huge step up for Alpkit
I took a risk pre-ordering this as the spec looked excellent and I have plenty of Alpkit gear. When it was arrived you could see this jacket was inspired by a certain company beginning with A, and ending with X. But that's no bad thing! This more than matches it for quality. The fit is great and slightly fitted - a big step up from previous Alpkit gear which has been a little boxy. (I'm 6ft, 34" waist, 42" chest and bought a large) I like the extra bit of length in the body and the arms are nice and long for reaching up. I like the way the hood also acts as a high collar when it's down. The warmth is amazing - much warmer than my old Rab Alpine Generator. I haven't tested the breathability too much yet. The colour is also really smart - also an improvement on some previous Alpkit colour choices.
Now I'm just dreading more of these appearing - for now I am liking the exclusivity of being one of the first buyers
Excellent for use on technical trails
Bought this to use for a 10k race in the pitch black of night through woods and open ground. I found the both the strength of light and spread of light on the 190 lumen setting excellent.
really pleased with this , very well made has a quality feel about it , well designed , nice length arms for reaching , hood adjustment from inside the pockets is a great touch , would buy again , and highly recommend
Great Base or Mid Layer for Cycling.
A great layer that I've been putting to use for colder cycle commutes. Once warmed up I'm happy wearing just this layer (usually between 0 - 8 Degrees). +1 for Thumb holes! Will put it to the test as a mid layer for hiking.
Liquids stay HOT
Long story short, I keep on burning my mouth using this flask
If I fill it up with tea and leave the screw top cap off, the tea is still very warm after 5 hrs at room temperature.
When used outside ( 2 Celsius) I found my tea still very warm after 4 hours.
Pretty decent for £10 if you ask me.
My second one... and I shall buy a third...
This is my second one of these, but only because my dear wife dropped the first from quite a height onto Dartmoor granite. It didn't physically break, but stopped working - and it was quite old and very, very well used.
I shall buy another to keep as a standby, and at the price you really cannot go wrong. It is excellent and has attracted comments from fellow walkers and runners. The red LED is a godsend, and the rear light is fantastic when you have a group of Beaver Scouts behind you. They know who to follow.
I use mine for walking mostly, but on slower runs it is also fine. For faster runs, or trail-running it isn't really bright enough. but then it is a fraction of the price and as so can be left in the bottom of a bag for when it may be needed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend these.
I own the Viper which is still going strong but was intrigued to see what the Viper ll could do.
I've only used it a few times but I really am very impressed.
The other night I went bivvying and needed to be a bit discreet and found that the lowest setting was just perfect to perform tasks with out being seen from far. The red lights are also extremely useful for this and also to not blind any co-bivvyers.
My wife also used it a few times to run / ride to work in the dark and she said it was much better than the original Viper.
Finally there is the BURST mode which is fantastic. You can light up a field with it.
All in all super happy.
Very well thought out and constructed trail tights. Love the number of pockets. My only minor quibble is that they come up on the large size.
I am going to stock up on a few pairs.
