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.

NEW! Down Scents
scented down jacket hit the market
great sack, great value. I had a similar designed backpack from an american company and was expecting this to be similar, however, the fabrics and construction on this make a far more robust package.
I'ts highly comfortable and I use it for running, commuting and just about everything else.
Uncluttered and sleek in black I reckon its in the same design league as the opinel or maglight.
only draw back for me is the chest strap rides up but thats a problem I have on other sacks too so probably just me.
If the 25 and 30 were carbon copies in terms of pockets/ compression I'd have one each of those too!
exactly as described
Ive used this mat for static camping, festivals and a mountain marathon. Down to 5 degree overnight low. Unprecedented level of comfort at this weight and size. At the lower end of the temperature range I noticed the cooler nature of the inflatable mat compared to self inflaters or CCF but when weight and space and comfort are priorities this is really hard to beat.
I've given it 5 stars as it does all that it claims to in spades.
Comfort & fit +++
These undershorts are the best! 5 hour wear, all good bum!! I wear them with Ground Effect cycle shorts: good combo. Highly recommend. As with all my Alpkit products, these ask "pick me, pick me" when I'm heading out on a ride!
Lovely and warm
I bought this jacket for bouldering trips, standing around before races and for keeping me warm when the heating packs in in my student house. It has done the job beautifully. Very warm, good fit (I'm 6ft 2 and large fits me well) and is exceptionally light, really feels lighter then many other much thinner jackets I own. Cracking coat. Customer service also top notch once again.
Great jacket, good warmth/weight ratio, used it before/after ski touring and as a security jacket on the backpack. Packs good into chest pocket.
Good looking in orange, the S is not totally adjusted on me (1.68m, 60kg) but so it can be worn with 1/2/3 layers underneath.
So much fun in a little box (or bag)
Bought this in 2015 didn't get an opportunity to use it until the Summer. Oh what fun. Great value
Simple to set up. Just need two trees under 50ft apart (fabric huggers included to protect the trees). Easy to tension. Fun to play on. Even my 80 year old Mum had a go (OK she sat on it and bounced).
Extremely impressive piece of kit
Extremely impressive piece of kit. OK it’s a light, but it’s a bright (196 lumen) light, with some of the finer details that make it excel. I've had one for a year and think its a worthwhile investment.
First of all it utilizes a CREE LED (CREE are the leaders of LED tech), powered by a high capacity 3300mAH Li-polymer battery. One charge lasts for 3 days of camping on the mid-setting (100 lumen of light from the dome is plenty enough especially using the hanger clip attached to the tent ceiling).
The mag-mount is strong enough to provide reliable light when working on the car (the bright glow is better than directional light from a head torch).
Plus a great backup charger from that that high capacity Li-polymer battery, ensures that your phone / Garmin stays charged (tested it on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it happily feeds it juice).
Could only be improved by having a replaceable battery. I'm assuming the light uses a fixed 18650 type cell, which typically sell for £15, so you can see why this light isn't cheap!
Good Quality Pole Shame about the Handle and Strap!
The poles themselves look well made, problem with the pole is that there is no flat section on the top of the handle to use it as a walking stick. The hand straps seem to be designed for a person with very small hands, also you could only use them in warm weather as there is no way you could get a pair of gloves on also! Alpkit usually sells walking gear that has been really well thought out so its a shame to give a bad review, a modification to the handle section would make a big difference! If it were only the pole section itself being reviewed they would have got 4 or 5 stars.
Couldn't be better
This is a great. product Once you've worked out the right strap lengths for your bike, the Kanga is easy to put on and take off, and fastening your bag is simple and quick. It fits nice and tight which means your bag won't move around. They couldn't have made it better.
The customer service is good too - they replied swiftly to my queries and my Kanga arrived within two working days even with the most basic postage.
Great handle bar bag
I used this for my sleeping bag on a recent 5 week trip to Patagonia. I never had a problem with it. It remained water tight the whole time even in some heavy Patagonian down pours with gail force winds, totally bombproof! The only thing I realised while I was away, I probably didn't need the double end access because it was only my sleeping bag. I could have used a standard 20L dry bag from Alpkit. However it's good to have the option, as in summer my bag is smaller which would allow me to pack my down jacket in there as well. Always good to have options
