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.

Out of 5 stars this head torch gets 10 !!!!!!!!!

Out of 5 stars this head torch gets 10 !!!!!!!!!

1st - it is incredibly bright on both the main beam or the two smaller close up beams.

2nd - multiple light options on both beam settings very useful in a variety of scenarios.

3rd The price - nothing else comes close to this head torch for under the £20 - try and find another full price head torch with the spec that this has

4th lightweight, cool colours, ease of use.

5th Alp kit service - batteries are included, free delivery, quick delivery - why would you want to spend money anywhere else!

this was my first order with alp kit - it will not be my last.

Mike Jarvis
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases.

"I got a couple of these, oh, must be easily ten years ago. I got the 2nd one because the first was so good.
Main beam is fiercely bright with a massive range and good focus, but it's made a bit more short range usable by having a low setting. Then for reading etc, the little let's are superb, WITH a choice of red and green, which helps maintain night vision.
Separate battery pack helps with battery life and the fact that there are 3 triple A's in it.
There IS a weak point which is the latch on the battery pack lid is a bit fragile, but that's easily rectified with a cleverly applied cable tie.
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases. 5 stars."

One Comfy Mat

I chose this over a NeoAir from thermarest. The Dumo is a bit bigger when it comes to pack size but there is a HUGE saving.
Was I any less comfortable on this? No way.

Mark Mulrain
Getting another one as soon as I can
Image

Mine got slightly smelly after 3 weeks of constant use in the Himalayas. I'd have hated to have smelled some of the poly thermals my friends were wearing

Mark Mulrain
So versatile

I've slept under it, made a social area in the campsite, kept gear dry under it. Great for creating a screen to allow some privacy too.

The attachment points are what sets this apart from some cheap tarp for me. It makes it so easy to rig up and you have confidence in their strength.

Value and reliabilty
Image

Great for stuffing a down jacket in. Great for protecting £30/40k worth of electrics on a speedboat.
Quality construction. Never had to worry about a leak.

Mark Mulrain
Easy to manage

Superior to the thick tin foil you get with stoves in every way.
Nicer to use. Easy to clean and fold away. More durable.

Mark Mulrain
Great Entertainment

My girlfriend stole this off me as soon as I got it.
I hope she doesn't burn her house down.

Giorgio Graziani
Really comfortable !

lightweight and of adequate width handlebars, it allows a good grip on technical descents and different positions useful on steep climbs. The lower handle not tired wrists and cyclist load is well distributed

Jake Loveday
Superb product

As I've said above, superb product! Very lightweight & small enough to not even notice it in your pack. A 240g gas canister lasted for 3 days, making several cups of tea a day, cooking bacon & eggs in the morning & soup each evening.

Very good price for such a well built product. Very impressed.

Arro Jacket

A great lightweight windproof layer. I'm not the slim racing snake I was and find that breathability rather than out and out waterproofing is the way to stay dry for me. at 6'1" and 16st I produce a lot of humidity when on the move and this is perfect for me. A good wicking layer underneath in cooler wetter weather and this keeps the breeze of but manages the moisture well. Using it on my adventure bike and under my summer motorcycle kit for the night time trip home for those chillier evenings when you need to keep the breeze of at 70 mph not totally bulk out with a thick fleece layer for the chilly commute. Perfect for the bigger boned gentleman and despite my bulk it is not tight at XL. I have to say that Alpkit make great clothes for my size without stupid long sleeves.

Gary
Works well

I've had this stove for a while, used it quite a bit, and generally am very happy with it. When it arrives the bag is a bit tight but it does stretch after use. The neoprene sleeve doesn't help in that respect but you wouldn't want to be without it as it means you can pick the whole thing up immediately after heating. The size means it's ideal for boil in the bag type meals. I mostly heat water in mine, and put meals in the water or make them with it. For that it's ideal. Gets a litre of water boiling in no time. Piezo ignition is great too. The way the stove is designed to clip onto a gas canister when in transit means the whole thing packs away pretty small. I've got quite a few stoves and this one is my current favourite. Can't fault it, excellent value for money.

Excellent lamp

Extremely impressed with this bit of kit, quality build and very bright. Great service from alp kit would highly recommend it

Best poles in 10 years

Held my mate's poles as she climbed over a stile, and couldn't believe how much lighter hers were than mine. Bought myself a pair asap, did 30miles in the Pentlands with them and then the Cateran Yomp (54 miles over 24 hours). I love them. They weigh NOTHING. Most comfortable poles ever. How can something so light be so sturdy?

Gravitas 1st use

SIzing is on the athletic/ slimmer side so suited to wearing over lighter weight clothing rather than thicker fleeces etc. Consider this on sizing when buying.
Hood well designed and cinches nicely with a single draw chord to the back of the head, wired peak works well to keep eyes and vision clear.
Personally feel it could do with a slightly longer back or overhaul lower hem, but this a minor gripe.

Graham Edwards
Great sleeping bag

I purchased the Skyehigh 900 long in December 2015 as my old down sleeping bag had pretty much given up on me. I spent quite a long time deciding on which bag to go for and eventually settled for this long version as it would give me extra space. I have used it on several occasions, mainly on a weeks long camping trip in the Lakes and have so far been really pleased with the item, its really warm and extra space (I'm 6ft 1) is amazing. I would highly recommend this sleeping bag to anyone who wants a that added space in their sleeping bag.

Month in Peru

My daughter has just used one of these for a months trip round Peru. Amazing kept everything dry, never let her down. Didn't expect to get it back in one piece and fully working, but it stood up to everything airlines, buses, trains and mules could throw at it. Worth every penny.

Richie
Awesome Kit

I've read negative reviews on the web and I reckon the peeps writing them would never be satisfied with anything! The Brukit is a complete winner: price, build, quality and performance. Those that are complaining about boil times taking a few odd mins and secs more than a jetboil: get a life, jeez!

Graham Fraser
Dry-dock 50

Fantastic bit of kit,love it and the great service Alpkit always provides.Here's to my next purchase.

Best Bivvy out there

I've used this while cycling John O'Groats to Lands End. It's super light weight and keeps your sleeping bag dry as can be. Cannot recommend highly enough. I'm 5ft 7in and the bag fits comfortably. Any taller than 6ft then the XL is for you.
