The classic Filo in its 2018 form; continuing to balance price and performance and set the standard high, whether out among the boulders during grit season or keeping out the chill on alpine ascents.

Versatility is at the core of the Filo. Invariably cosy in even the bitterest of conditions, the lightweight design and detachable hood give you the streamlining you want for expedition use, whilst the fleece-lined pockets and extended back length give you a boost of comfort and warmth in everyday use.

Filled with premium quality 650 fill power hydrophobic duck down, the Filo is a fantastic value, toasty warm, lightweight and feature-loaded down jacket that, come winter, you’ll rarely be seen without.


Stays dry and retains loft up to 60 times longer than untreated down, absorbing 90% less water and restoring performance way quicker. Plus, its water based formulation is PFC-free and will not harm you or the environment - huzzah!


The down we use is certified RDS (Responsible Down Standard). This mark indicates that the down in this product does not come from birds that have been live-plucked or force-fed, and that their welfare has been protected from the time they were hatchlings to when they are slaughtered. That’s good to know.

Great warm jacket. Enjoy a little bit of luxury

Having toyed with the idea of getting one for a good while, a clearance sale finally gave me the opportunity to sample one of these lovely jackets. I spent 7 or 8 months in a folding camper during the week and this was most welcome on cooler evenings or when you had to nip out in the early morning or middle of the night. It's comfy, nicely articulated and insulates well. Also, it was more robust than I'd thought it might be and hasn't had any scuffs or wear marks or unralelling stitching yet. Stray feathers yes, but that can't be helped. Having had the stitching fail in a SkyeHigh, I was a little wary, but there have been no problems in almost 3 years, so I'm more than happy.

Great winter jacket

The jacket is fantastic for the price. It is super-warm, the hood works to keep everything well protected, the colour (blue for me) is lovely. It is bulky but not unwieldy when off. I have enjoyed wearing it and have been almost disappointed when the weather is too clement. A great jacket for the price.

Best Jacket ever...

Sorry Alpkit but this jacket rocks and your Phantac doesn't. This one fits, the other doesn't... I've bought both (and sold one). The fit on the Filo works because the arms are the right length (i.e. not too long), and the body is also the right length (i.e not too short). This jacket also feels warmer (to my mind at least). Could you not construct a super-jacket to the Filo's dimensions and the Phantac's materials? Please keep up the excellent work in making great kit!

I'll never be cold again

Ok, It's my first "proper" outdoor activities bit of clothing, so I can't compair it with what else is out there, but the clever design features are self-evident, like the little folded over bit of material at the top of the zip so the nasty cold metal doesn't touch your face. I was wearing a jumper under my normal outdoor jacket, had to take it off, too hot. Just sat outside in the cold October Scottish evening, drinking a coffee and grinning like a loon. Hurry up and get your winter stock in, I'm coming back for more!

TGO magazine create a helpful cheater's guide for Christmas gifts for hillwalkers. However, it is equally useful for leaving around the house (or open on your web browser) as a cheeky hint for your own Christmas gifts!

Warmer and more practical than an item of clothing made from its pastry namesake would be.

Filo - Trail Best Value

Graham Thompson reviews a bunch of down jackets and the Filo comes out as best value, we have improved the jacket since 2011, making the hood more ergonomic with adjusters. You can also visit our showroom in Nottingham to try one on.

The Alpkit Filo blows everything off the mountain in terms of price. But it's also a top-of-the-mountain performer...
