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.

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.

Great kit

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.

Great socks

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.

John
What a great idea

Great to see Alpkit sponsoring this very worthwhile scheme.Good gear will enhance the enjoyment and safety of these young people.Well done Alan and I'm sure your scheme will inspire lots of your participants.
The summer months sees too many poorly equipped DofE groups !

Big and beautiful

Use with a pot cosy and its excellent. Summer gas is great and winter enthanol also. Its greatest assets is it is light but big. My brew kit fits in perfectly with strike iron tea bags and the rest of the stuff.

Phantac Jacket

I purchased this jacket on release, and have subsequently used it on every trip I have been on since. Whether camping at 4000m plus in the Ruwenzori Mountains or packrafting in Finland or walking the West Highland Way, the Phantac has kept me nice and toasty. The inside mesh pockets are handy; I use them to keep camera batteries warm or even dry socks between the down and a mid-layer.
The jacket is a nice fit with comfortable movement throughout, I wear a medium at 5'10'' and 80kgs.
For cleaning....well I haven't apart form using a damp cloth to wipe it occasionally and just keep it aired and hung up not stuffed.
A very good jacket at a very competitive price point.

Hunka Bivvy.

The Hunka is an excellent bivvy bag at an equally amazing price mark. I have used it on a number of trips around the UK over the last 12 months or so and have had no problems with it so far.
It is lightweight and has a small pack size, perfect for any adventure.
For use in the UK I don't see the need to use anything more technical - perfect those who want to get out and have their own micro-adventures!
