Winners of our recent Alpkit dark Instagram photo competition have been chosen.

A little darkness doesn't let our intrepid customers from continuing to get out and enjoy their adventures. With the darkening days here in the UK we set them a challenge of recording their adventures as part of a recent Instagram lighting competition. 

We reviewed the entries here at Alpkit HQ whilst sitting cosily infront of the fire and the team picked out the following #alpkitdark champions. Now you can see there's no excuse not to continue your adventures into the dark hours.

Cover shot: Sweden gets its fair share of darkness this time of year, but it doesn't stop 'herrmister' getting out with the Manta headtorches and cooking up a delicious fish soup to keep the troops warm. Från at Ulorna in Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast.

'stumpytrek' gets moody on a wet and wild microadventure in Dartmoor as 'carlmorton' takes it easy under a tarp in his Hunka bivvy whilst reading Extreme Sleeps.  

'bredon10' captures Clara on her first night time jungle adventure with our Gourdon20, whilst 'meangarry' tests out his Manta headtorch on Hart Fell.  

Each of the winners recieves a Indigo headtorch and Glowe lantern to help them continue on their way in the dark.
