A sharp cold wind is no excuse for not getting out on the hill, especially when you’ve got your Akita with you.

Technical, warm, and sleek, Akita was designed to help you strike the balance between protection from the elements and not being a sweaty mess.

The hardwearing yet smooth outer face gives wind resistance to warm you up on cool Autumn days. The combination of a minimalist hoodless design and soft and warm inner shell makes Akita super comfy when layered under beefier jackets. A full-length zip makes ventilation simple and effective.

With a modern cut and slim fit, the Akita looks sleek whether you’re in the pub or our adventuring, and who doesn’t want to look sleek when they’re adventuring?

Great as a jacket or....

Also great for under an outer layer when cold/wet. Washes well, still looks new, material comfy, stretchy and hardy! Breathes well during activity. Love it.

Very stylish fleece jacket

The Akita is an extremely stylish and very flattering mid-weight fleece jacket.

I bought the Fontainbleu colour, which I love. It's a very vibrant colour combination and it looks great when I coordinate it with my turquiose trainers and my Alpkit Go Nice Places T-shirt.

The jacket is comfortable to wear, the hand pockets are perfect and the full-length zip and flattering cut make it very hard to beat, plus it's so easy to care for. In fact, there's nothing about it I would change!

Usual quality, fit and (sorry) easy return!

Great Jkt, my wife loved the fit and feel. Unfortunately the Font colour looked lots less blue and lots more purple in real life, so we returned it - easy with the Alpkit 123 return deal, so buy with confidence!

Good colour but just too big

Bought the 'rocket' colour in 8. Loved the colour (bright green) and material, but the jacket was just too big for me - loose sleeves and far too long in the body. Such a shame that I have to return it. Alpkit, please don't follow other brands by making women's clothes in vanity sizes as it's very frustrating for us slimmer people.
