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.


Nikwax Hydrophobic is a water repellent treatment that makes down less susceptible to humid conditions, staying lofted for longer and prolonging the overall lifespan of your down.


We use only RDS certified down; all our down is audited by a third party to ensure that it comes from birds who are not live-plucked, force-fed, or mistreated. That’s good know.

Sizing advice - Take the next size down

You guys are telling us that this batch of Filo jackets is coming up a touch on the roomy side. With this in mind we strongly advise you to take the next size down. So if you are normally a 12 please select a 10.

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...

Filo features in TGO Christmas Gift Guide

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.

Trail review the latest Filo down jacket

Trail test the 2012/13 Filo down jacket and and give it 4/5 stars

Like all Alpkit gear the price of the Filo is outstanding, yet is also manages to pack in great performance that almost matches the best in test.
