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.

Bigger than you think!
Very well made and I can fit my sleeping mat, bivvy bag and down sleeping bag in no problem (your mileage may vary of course). Fits under my handle bars a treat too (flat bars) -- a very satisfied customer.
Excellent quality merino, well-made, great fit
I bought this as part of the baselayer bundle (1 short, 1 long sleeve for £55) so it was even better value. Very impressed by the quality of the fabric, the stitching and the style. The aubergine colour is exactly that - aubergine - and the weight is light but not see-through. The sleeves on the short sleeve version are just above the elbow, which I like, and the neckline is perfect, not too low to be work as a top layer. I wore this on a warm and windy walk up Pen-y-ghent, under a windproof jacket which can get a bit sweaty. The baselayer was incredibly comfortable, not one itch from any part of it, and I finished the walk in as non-smelly condition as I started it. I'd be happy to take this on a 4 day trip as my only baselayer.
The bag is simple but looks suitably tough with nice attention to detail. Good stitching and great zips and straps. I'm ordering another one.
Awesome lite low cost option, recommend
Was doing a 1000k Bikepacking Event in New Zealand, had a bigger seat bag but wanted to go smaller, lighter = faster. Know this isnt really promoted to have heavy use by itself but used it for the event and worked awesomely! Did leak a little but that was after 10hrs riding in the wet and by the end of the event did have a small tear on the daisy chain loop where sat between the seat rails but considering the use i'm happy. Will get it repaired and think will just run an extra webbing loop around the bag and seat rails but not the daisy chain just to give it a bit of extra support for next years 1100k mission. Oh yeah, i used it for training missions beforehand.
Flatiron Knife, fork and spoon set
This kit is as the caption above suggests the bees knees! Light as a feather compared to the similar steel set it slips neatly away into a side pocket ready for next time and the carabiner keeps the whole set tickety boo! Everyone who sees me using the set is amazed particularly by the weight! Some have an issue with the "mouthfeel" of the titanium which is why I would rate it as a 4 star for general but it has never been an issue for me
Great bit of kit
Just got back from a weekend camping on Dartmoor. My kids have inherited my ME and Multimat sleeping mats and I decided to give the Numo a go. It's a great bit of kit..very comfortable and packs down very small.. I didn't have to allocate space for it (as I have with my previous sleep mats) as I knew I'd be able to find space for it somewhere. Plenty long enough (I'm 6 ft) and whilst it looks narrow I found I didn't roll off it as much as I do with my other mats.
In summary, it packs down great, insulates you from the ground well and is comfortable.
Bear on his travels
We came across a lonely AlpBear in Ruddy Gill on Scafell Pike on Saturday night just gone (23rd July 2016) so we took him with us to the summit and then he accompanied 4 lovely ladies to Snowdon for their last mountain on their National 3 peaks challenge. He went on his own way after that after some cuddles and peanut butter!
Real kit at realistic prices
Firstly I have never left a review for a product.....ever.....but these mats really justify one.
Tossed and turned for ages over which mats to get to replace my old self inflating ones.
Finally settled on these as the specs are better that anything similar on the market and the price is too.
Super comfortable nights sleep even with my 3 year old on his own Dumo next to me - we both slept through to 7 - better than we get at home !
In built pump is a dream takes about two and a half mins to inflate at a leisurely pace and seconds to deflate, goes back easily into bag and I have found that you can use the deflate valve to deflate a little to get extra comfy.
Delivery was quick even to my remote location and people on the phone were really friendly and helpful too.
Great experience overall - a real pleasure !
ps the colour is a nicer blue in reality I think.
Awesome windproof jacket
I needed something lightweight for those longer fell runs to keep the chill out and this is perfect, it even fits in my hand! And the price? Alpkit does it again delivering a top quality product for a fraction of the price of other brands.
