Sales

We like our coffee black, our donuts jammy and our shopping simple. If you can order it online it should be in stock. If you order before the postie gets here it will go out the same day and there is a pretty good chance you will get it a couple of days later.

Pre-Orders

If a product is marked as pre-order, please make sure you have read and understood the following before making your purchase:

  • Payment will be taken immediately and your item will be dispatched when stock arrives.
  • Any other products ordered at the same time as a pre-ordered item will be held until the pre-ordered item comes into stock. If you would like your additional items to be dispatched immediately, please make a separate order.
  • Although we try and give an accurate indication of when we will take delivery of the stock they are liable to change.

Bulk Order Discount

We aim to keep our prices awesome at all times for all our customers. However, if you are bulk ordering 10 or more of one product, then we can offer you our bulk discount, passing on what we save on postage, processing and despatch.

  • 10% off 10+ of a product
  • 15% off 15+ of a product

To use our bulk order discount, please contact us on 01773 417007 or email support@alpkit.com

Offer details

2. Multiple colours are accepted in bulk orders.

3. Multiple sizes are accepted in clothing bulk orders.

No club discounts?! Cripes, it's the Alpkit way.

You like our brand, site and products yet you have an aching feeling deep in your stomach. It just won't go away, you don't like paying full price for your outdoor gear, perhaps like us you worked in a gear shop as a youth. You joined a club, and your card sits next to your credit card, ready to zap 10% from the final total.

But at Alpkit there is no box to enter your membership number. You roll your eyes and curse those cyber pirates sitting in their swish virtual offices before hopping in the car, driving 10 miles into town, finding a parking meter and flexing your 10% in your preferred shop.

Well, some of that's true, some isn't. We have worked in gear shops but we are certainly not sitting in swish offices! There are many reasons we have chosen to take this path.

Why can't I find Alpkit products in other shops?

Getting your gear via a middleman adds to the price of your gear! We only sell our products direct - on our website and in our stores - so that we can keep the prices as low as possible.

I am a member of a club, why do we not get a discount rate?

Let's assume we offered a 10% discount to every group that was to approach us, I mean why should we say no to one group and yes to another? Our hunch is that this would be a heck of a lot of people. We try and retail our products for the most competitive price possible to all our customers.

But surely you are missing out on a golden marketing opportunity?

We have found not offering individual discounts has lost us marketing opportunities; offering the best price to all our customers is more important to us as it makes the outdoors more accessible for everyone.

We want to support all our customers, not just offer discounts to those who are part of a club.

How to get stuff from Alpkit

You can buy stuff online and have it delivered or pop into one of our stores (in Hathersage and Ambleside).

As with all Alpkit prices, the cost of UK shipping is included in the price shown. In most cases your goods will arrive up to two days after payment is received.

We offer 123 day returns and free UK returns postage if you item isn't what you expected when it arrives.

Invoice & Payment

You can pay for your goods immediately as we accept most forms of plastic, however if you need us to raise a Pro-forma invoice so you can arrange a cheque or a BACS payment, progress through the shopping cart as normal and select Pay by Phone as your preferred payment method. We will contact you shortly afterwards to sort out all the details.

So that's it in a nutshell, we hope you can see there are both positives and negatives. We think there are more positives than negatives: we enjoy the freedom to make and sell what we and our customers want; and there is no structure of sales agents or buyers to interfere. It is us and you. We are always open to offering the odd prize to a raffle or magazine competition if you catch us on the right day

60 Day Love Mud Wheel trial

We know that our wheels will keep you rollin' mile after mile with a smile on your face… But we figured we'd give you 60 days to really make your mind up about them anyway. If you haven't bonded with your Love Mud wheels at the end of the 60 days, you can send them back for a refund. We'll even pay for the return shipping (UK customers only).

A few T&Cs to get out of the way first though

  • This offer does not apply to Juice hub builds or wheelsets purchased as part of a full bike build.

  • 60 day returns offer starts from the day of delivery.

  • Wheels must be returned clean, free from dings, and in their original packaging, damage to a returned product caused by improper packaging may disqualify the returned product for return.

  • We cannot refund wheels that have suffered rim damage due to hard impacts or other severe crash damage. In cases of severe damage, you may qualify for our accident replacement scheme.

If you do choose to part with your Love Mud wheels

  • Contact us to book a collection via ParcelForce (for UK orders) or DHL (for international orders).

  • Unfortunately, we cannot cover the cost of international returns, you are responsible for the cost of return shipping along with any custom duties or taxes.

Sleeping Bag Fitting Guide

How will you fit in your sleeping bag? We're all different shapes and sizes, which can affect on how we might use a sleeping bag in more extreme conditions.

We break sleeping bag fit down into three general categories: Spacious, Optimum, and Tight.

Spacious:

Thermal efficiency: There will be a bit of extra space in the bag, reducing thermal efficiency.

Fit: You'll have room to sleep comfortably and space to wear extra layers too.

Optimum:

Thermal efficiency: You are the ideal candidate for this bag.

Fit: You should be able to easily arrange yourself in the bag; you'll probably have space to wear a down jacket too if needed!

Tight:

Thermal efficiency: You'll be slightly compressing the down, reducing the thermal efficiency, especially at the feet.

Fit: You'll have limited movement around your shoulders. You should be able to take your socks off in the bag, but may struggle to take off a layer without unzipping the bag.

What size Airlok for my sleeping bag or down jacket?

When stuffing your sleeping bag in to the dry bag be gentle with the opening. This is the most fragile part of the bag, so avoid twisting it or putting undue stress on the internal plastic strip so it maintains a good seal when rolled.

If you intend to keep the sleeping bag in the provided compression bag rather than stuffing it straight in to the drybag you will have to choose a larger size due to the size of the opening.

Rowan from the design team spent a load of time stuff things into our Airlok dry bags here are his findings...

Which insulation into which bag?

Can I swap a product in a bundle?

The bundles are set up to give the best value possible to customers purchasing certain products together. We are unable to swap products in the bundles for different items at this time.

SagePay US State Abbreviations and US State Postal Codes

Recently our payment gateway SagePay has started requiring US states to be entered in a two-digit format. As orders placed in the UK and Europe do not require the postal state / county our website is not currently set up to automate this process. As a temporary measure we have published the codes here, please enter the correct two-digit code in the county field and you should be good to go.

There are absolutely no links between PayPal and Alpkit, so you decide if you are happy with their terms of service. PayPal do not pass any card details to us, they simply transfer the money from your account to ours.

Paying with PayPal

1. Select PayPal as your payment method in the checkout.

2. Click on Complete Checkout and you will be transferred to the PayPal site.

3. Login to PayPal and transfer funds directly from your PayPal account, or select a card registered to your account.

4. Upon confirming your details you will be returned to our site.

5. Still happy? Good, now just click on Submit Order to finalise the transaction and you will be presented with an order confirmation page.

You will now be able to check the status of your payment in your PayPal profile.

1. Safari

2. Firefox

3. Internet Explorer

If you continue to have problems using our site please send an e-mail. It would help if you included any relevant details such as which browser and which type of computer you are using.

Help: My order failed!

1. Connection failure: There could have been a temporary connection problem on the Internet causing the webserver to time out.
2. Wrong credit card number: Your credit card details may have been rejected by our payment processor; they are pretty strict.
3. Duplicate order: Every time you enter our checkout you create a unique order ID. If you enter an invalid card number you will be given the chance to use a different card, however if you try the same card number you order can be rejected.

Help: I didn't get an order confirmation!

After completing an order you should return to our site and see an order confirmation page. You should also receive an email confirming that we have received your order. If you do not get either of these please contact us and we will check to see if we have got it. This problem is usually a web browser issue so please check you are using the minimum requirements.

Help: I cannot click through to the payment page!

The first thing to check is that your browser meets the minimum requirements and you have javascript and cookies turned on in your browser. In a small number of cases the information you are trying to send may contain illegal characters, please make sure all your information contains only numbers, letters and simple punctuation.
