More comfortable than my bed

This is my spare bed and it's super comfortable. However, I agree with the other reviewer, it's virtually impossible to get it back into it's elastic straps & bag single handed. Perhaps a large heavy person could, or two people, but I'm 58kg and I just can't squeeze enough air out. But they say it should be stored flat anyway.

The death of the fleece

Brilliant jacket. Looked at loads of other manufacturers and always something wrong. The Heiko ticks all the boxes. Lightweight; the correct number and position of pockets; a drop back. I'm 6ft and 75 kg and bought the medium which is great as a mid layer once you pull the tabs tighter on the hem. Would have liked to have seen other colours available, a black or forest, but am happy with the Nemo. I can see me wearing this socially all the time in the British weather. I travel a lot and this will be my go to jacket to take away with me. If you do make some in not so climby colours I will get another. Time to get rid of your fleeces and buy one of these! Great delivery and service also. Cheers chaps.

Please do a hooded arro

Please do a hooded arro. A helmet hood. With lightweight retaining strap.
Perfect softshell when combined with a light grid fleece.

Superb hardtail, thats agile, responsive & forgiving over long distances

Having been a Specialized owner for several years, I succumbed to adopting a 650b+ bike after riding my Husband’s Sonder Transmitter (despite it being too big for me, I had an awesome time at Cannock Chase).

Used this excellent bike for the 2016 Rat Race The Crossing in July 2016. My Husband and I both had Sonder Transmitters (he had a Medium frame Transmitter SRAM GX1 Pike) on this adventure race and we were told that these were the first 650b+ bikes (of any make) to participate in the event since its inception.

I’m so impressed with the speed both on and off road (as a 70 mile day weaved and traversed over tarmac, rutted grasslands, thick mud, through thickly forested singletrack, climb loose gravel track and descending steep rocky trails). Handling the majority of sections with such ease that I could speed past those thin wheeled 27.5/29inch bikes with simplicity. Alpkit has done an amazing job on these bikes, as many “The Crossing” participants suffered mechanical issues, even countless more had tire issues, as we hammered the 200 mile, 3 day event across 3 National Parks. Our Transmitters had no issues whatsoever. 27.5+ is the way to go.

What was intriguing is the number of fellow participants who tested our Transmitters during the event. They were blown away with both bikes. Even the event mechnics where in awe. Some of these testers had high spec £5k full suspension bikes!

Alpkit had also lent me a beta test of their new womens specific seat. Another fantastic product especially compared to the mens seat (on my Husband’s Sonder)


Bought the hunka XL this January and used it for a winter weekend in the snow early February ready. No zipper so you have to crawl in, but it worked beautifully. No condensation, even though opening of my sleeping bag emitted a lot of damp air.

a classic

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.

Excellent jacket

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.

Helmet Mounting a Gamma Headtorch

Now the nights are drawing in cyclists are dusting off their night lights and hitting the trails under the cover of darkness. I used the pre-sales samples of the Gamma headtorch, mounted to my helmet,last year to illuminate my journey during the daily commute home. I am now using the Gamma as an off-road bike light every-time I blast my local trails.
