So close to perfection!

I bought this primarily as an outerlayer for trail running. I'd be happy to use it for other sports and I keep it in the car as a just-in-case layer.

Pros: It's super light and packs down without hassle into it's pocket. Elasticated sleeves, drawcord and a good zip mean I can batten down the hatches and they all function perfectly. it's windproof, acceptably water resistant and cheap.

cons: The sleeves are really baggy... this is my main gripe, they flap around while running and mean I get sweaty arms in a little forearm micro-environment. Otherwise the jacket fits well as does all other size large alpkit stuff so I wouldn't be able to drop down to a medium. No hood. Make one with one and I will buy it on day 1.

Seriously, add a hood.

Did the Job

Used this top for the Greenman Ultra Marathon. Was perfect for what I needed for the event, light weight, easy packable and keeps the wind and rain off great.

Only thing i do wish it had a hood tho.

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.

Very practical

Bought this at the beginning of last summer and it was a constant companion on the hills. Weighs very little and packs small but makes a big difference when the wind blows chill or there are showers/low mist etc. How about a gilet version Alpkit?

Functionally excellent, yet smart-looking shell.

This windproof packs down so small I take it on every hike, just in case. The cut of it and the styling are good enough that I also regularly wear it more casually and because it packs down, it's no hassle to shove in a bag when going indoors.

It does what it says on the in quite simply. Keeps the wind off very well and even light rain.

Super versatile top.

This is a brilliant, super-lightweight jacket. I use one as a cycling jacket - it packs small enough to throw into my bag and weighs next to nothing. It cuts out the wind, stops light rain showers and is thin enough not to turn me into a bag of sweat when I arrive at work.

For much the same reasons, I always pack/wear one when I go climbing. I love that it packs into the single pocket, and light enough to clip onto my harness. A great backup for when the weather turns a bit gray!

Very glad I bought 2! :D

Awesome windproof jacket

I needed something lightweight for those longer fell runs to keep the chill out and this is perfect, it even fits in my hand! And the price? Alpkit does it again delivering a top quality product for a fraction of the price of other brands.

Just what i was looking for!

Replaced my much loved Buffalo windshirt which finally disintegrated and a hard act to follow. I'm 6'2, 12 stone, the med is a great fit- tight enough for running but space for a thin fleece under when belaying. Even enough shoulder articulation if I want to climb in. Nice fabric, no annoying vents, being able to pack/unpack into the pocket mid run already proving beneficial.

Arro Jacket

A great lightweight windproof layer. I'm not the slim racing snake I was and find that breathability rather than out and out waterproofing is the way to stay dry for me. at 6'1" and 16st I produce a lot of humidity when on the move and this is perfect for me. A good wicking layer underneath in cooler wetter weather and this keeps the breeze of but manages the moisture well. Using it on my adventure bike and under my summer motorcycle kit for the night time trip home for those chillier evenings when you need to keep the breeze of at 70 mph not totally bulk out with a thick fleece layer for the chilly commute. Perfect for the bigger boned gentleman and despite my bulk it is not tight at XL. I have to say that Alpkit make great clothes for my size without stupid long sleeves.



Arro First Impressions

a functional, all-round wind-shell made from a tough-feeling Nylon with a water-repellent finish. Not the lightest out there, but then it should survive a bit more abuse as a result, and simply but neatly designed. great value too at £25.
