From the original AlpineDream over 10 years ago we have been designing the best down sleeping bags and been using them for many more. We've come full circle with the ultralight PipeDream for fast and light backpacking, SkyeHigh for essential warmth, AlpineDream for year-round lightweight camping; and expedition ArcticDream for extreme conditions. Whether it is for just a quick summer overnight bivvy, winter wild camp on a Scottish mountain or an expedition to the Antarctic, we demand the best from our equipment. The sleeping bags are designed with bike packers, campers and mountaineers in mind and made with the best goose and duck down from only non-force fed and non-live plucked farms, the best top end fabrics and leading synthetic technologies. We sell with the minimum fuss so our gear is maximum value.

No nonsense backpack.
This is the 3rd bit of kit from Alpkit, and again they have nailed it. A product that works. Packed correctly can hold an entire days kit with ease. It's waterproof with no flapping about cover. It's comfortable and even has a removable pad to sit on when you stop for lunch. Price point is great like all Alpkit stuff. I buy kit on a regular basis and I can guarantee more purchases will be made with Alpkit. Great products, Great company values.
Very comfy and does the job
Have now worn this waterproof in 3 full days of rain and it is still beading magnificently with no leakage. Weighs very little and folds small. I am a 41 inch chest and the large fits well if you want a fleece underneath. Only one kangaroo pocket and only available in black - come on Alpkit lets have a choice of brighter colours for the fells
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?
You want a pair of tights that you can wear for 6 days on the hoof running along the Pennine way? You want a pair of tights that let you keep 600kcal of trail mix in your left thigh pocket, a spare buff and bodyglide in the other thigh pocket? A pair of tights that have a zipped pocket for camera and phone? Tights that dry quickly below the knee?
These have it all. Probably the best bit of kit that I took on the Spine Race. Peanuts too.
I was told that lightweight waterproofs wouldn't survive the Spine Race. Well these did, and they were bloody brilliant.
6 days, 268 miles through rain, sleet, snow, and river crossings. These deliver in buckets.
The trim fit cuts back on drag and the material gives just a bit of stretch making them super comfy for running and walking.
The ankle zip goes just high enough to get gaiters/boots (UK13) through without too much faff and the Velcro closures stop the flapping.
These have been through some crap in the last week and the zips and closures are still working perfectly. A bit of absolute top end kit.
My new favourite possession
I just purchased the Pipedream 600 2017 model sleeping bag last week and I am in love with it. I have only had the chance to use it twice but they were a good test of the bag. It kept me super cosy and warm over the weekend in a bothy in icy conditions and another night camping where there was a lot of dampness in the tent. Both situations the sleeping bag performed even better than I had hoped. It is very light and, although not as small as the Pipedream 400, it packs down to a impressively small size which makes carrying it easy. It comes with one small compression sack and a larger storage sack. It feels high quality and really cosy. I can't wait to sleep in it again! Features such as the insulation behind the zip and the fitted neck piece are a brilliant design. Thank you alpkit!
great MTB backpack
Bought this for mountain biking in Torridon. Hard to beat. Its light, comfy, waterproof and roomy.
A good liner option!
I used this last night in -2C as an extra liner inside a 3-season bag. Being February, I needed to beef up my go to sleeping bag (PHD Minim 400) without buying a completely new 4-season bag. Using this as a liner quilt works very well and it adds a season. The press studs allowed me to enclose my body warmth inside effectively and they didn't pop open during the night.
I am very tall (6ft 4), and the cover did not span the length of my body. I don't mind this - actually I am used to gear heightism, so I used a down jacket for my top half as I normally do and thick socks for my toes.
I also looked at the point-5 quilt by Alpkit, but I think this is more versatile due to it being able to be laid out flat like a proper quilt. If used alone the extra long draw strings could be used to tie under a sleeping mat, meaning you have a fixed down layer over you that is non-restrictive.
I am not sure how much warmth it would give on its own. Perhaps only suitable for very warm summer's night, or indoors use. But certainly an ideal solution as a liner inside another bag during Winter.
What can I say?
Have worn this midlayer over and over again. I am 1.6m size 10 and I love it, it fits perfect, is warm but let's you work hard. It seems to be odour free and it washes well and dries quickly. What can I say? I have ordered a second since they are on special offer......Get in there quick ladies I would recommend!
Ordos 2 - one hell of a tent!
This tent is possibly the finest there is out there. It's very light which, when taking one on an adventure race, is very important. The real plus point, though, for a tent so light is that it's so roomy inside. The framework is common sense all over with steep sides and loads of foot space. In fact, I was so impressed with the first one I bought that I picked up a second for the kids to sleep in while we were all away on a family cycle tour.
Congratulations to the designer.
I bought the Heiko at the beginning of January (2017) as I've been looking for a winter jacket. It was my first outing in the Peak District this year. With temperatures touching -3 degrees and a wind chill factor of -10 this jacket performed brilliantly. With just a base layer and a micro fleece underneath it kept the icy wind and cold out and I was comfortably warm. With its lightweight and compact material its well worth every penny.
I highly recommend this product to anyone, It's a Quality Jacket.
Bought these for my fell running. What a brilliant bit of kit. I have a more expensive pair which cost me around £100 and don't even compare. If you want good value for money running glasses or just really cool looking glasses I recommend you buy these while they're in stock. You'll not be disappointed.
Excellent product- so good in fact that within 2 minutes of unpacking my parcel (speedy delivery) I was straight back on the website to order another. Nice cut, quality feel.
I really like these glasses. They keep the wind out my eyes well when road cycling. The nose piece is soft grippy rubber and is malleable so you can squeeze it into shape to suit your nose. The arms have sticky rubber on them too to grip your head. They are comfortable to wear and clarity of vision is good. I think they are great value with three sets of lenses too.
Love this backpack
I walked the Camino de Santiago with this backpack last year, and it was brilliant. Super lightweight, and I never had to worry about putting on a rain cover. There were many envious walkers!
I see they've added some mesh side pockets to the design now, which is excellent, as I previously found carrying water the only drawback. I'll be ordering another!
Kraku stove , myti mug 400 ando 650 , Alpkit titanium folding fork and spoon , small swiss army knife. All fits together , Small and compact and comes ski touring with me every week. Can't recommend enough.
This has been used on three bikepacking wild camps so far with various combos of kit packed into it.. This has included:
British army bivi bag, Exped synmat winterlite LW,lightweight down jacket,inflatable pillow.
DD hammock,and suspension straps/carabiners,Exped mat,above jacket and pillow.
DD jura2 sleeping bag by itself.
Make sure the available strap crossover under the saddle rails to prevent sway.All in all, a great seatpack.
Fantastic trousers, technical AND smart!
These are my favourite trousers. Good cut, with enough room in the thigh; they stretch well without going baggy. High cut at the back to minimise drafts when bending etc during activity. The DWR coating works well - and is still working after several washes in soap solution. Enough room in the ankle for a winter walking boot but without flapping. In addition they are smart enough to wear out for a pint in the pub after a day in the outdoors! Very happy with purchase.
Lightweight. Warm. Great fit. Stylish. What more do you want?

Sleeping bags for four seasons of camping
There are no shortage of sleeping bag manufacturers so why might you consider an Alpkit bag over the others? Well one good reason is that we design our own bags, work closely with a factory to get them made and then sell them directly to you from this website.
