Sleeping Bags
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.

Most Popular Sleeping Bags

We have over 35 sleeping bags in the range, one for almost every conceivable situation. If the choice seems too much then these are the bags to look at first, check the weight, warmth and price-tag. These our best sellers. They are the bags that we and our customers come back to time-after-time and are the foundation stones of our sleeping bag range.

PipeDream Ultra-lightweight Goose Down Sleeping Bag Range

PipeDream provides insulation without the weight. Think of alpinists on mountain ledges or mountain marathon runners who think cutting their toothbrush in half is going to save them vital minutes on race day. These kind of people love PipeDreams because of their tiny size, weight and comfort: not for snuggly lie-ins.

Some sections can be brutal but over all the whw is worth it in the end !
Image

I finished the west highland way on Friday May 26th, this was an idea I had been planning with friends since last year but as it got closer to our official start date on the 6th of May due to varying circumstances I ended up finishing it on my own on a full rigid mountain bike and I can tell you there were high and low points for sure, I set off on Saturday the 6th from Milngavie later than planned due to the earliest train that I could get, starting at 9:40am from Milngavie and choosing to cycle the Lochside out of Rowardenan to Inversnaid (which was a big mistake), costing me time and darkness which started to fall by the time I hit Inversnaid 10hr25 later, I really loved the Conic on the way there and riding down it was sublime, from Inversnaid my wife and son picked me up and we spent the night at Beinglas Farm Campsite Inverarnan(superb place to stay) and in the morning I decided that I would just have a family day at Glencoe and return when I got another weather window later on in the month, fast forward to Thursday the 25th and I am on the train first thing to Ardlui to begin cycling from Inverarnan, starting off at 10am from Beinglas Farm Campsite after a quick cycle from the station I'm on the whw again and 9hr30 later I'm at Glencoe Mountain Camping Glencoe PH49 4HZ for the night(just made it in time for a burger and chips with salad which I must say was the best burger chips and salad that I have ever tasted). Next day I'm off again from Glencoe Mountain which is just along from the Kingshouse at around 8:40am low points on this day were the climb up Devils and climbing out of Kinlochleven, also the rough military road section after you drop down out of the other side of the hill at Kinlochleven doesn't make for smooth cycling in sections, the baking heat nearly put paid to my day just before the fire road before Fort William (nearly), once your on the fire road though it is plain sailing, I arrived at Fort William after setting off from Glencoe Mountain 8hr20 later with time to spare for my train back home to Glasgow. In the end I got there and looking back on it now it was all worth it, I also ran some Alpkit bags which were top notch and thanks to Ronan at Alpkit for the patch repair kit for my Airlok, it worked a treat. Would I do it again, for sure yes but I would travel lighter the next time and use a Hardtail with suspension up front or a full suss, My shoulders and arms would thank me for it ! I also wouldn't miss out the Inversnaid to Inverarnan section next time, I have heard it is brutal but I have to go back and do it all the next time in 3 days again, but one after the other without a break. I have included a picture from the start of the Lochside, I have plenty more but thought this one was quite fitting. Also big thanks to the lady at Kinlochleven who filled my water up, you were a lifesaver !

Fantastic bivvy bag
Image

I ordered Hunka couple days ago, I am really impressed how quick parcel came to Poland. Last night finally I used bivvy bag on short bike trip near one of my favorite lakes just out of Gdansk city. It was pleasant misty night with around 8 Celcius. It worked great with my new down sleeping bag, so far no condensation even when it get warm at morning. Kelp colour is fantastic and also design is perfect. Well done.

Spot on piece of kit!!
Image

I've just done a 1 night camp at Edale. I used the Dumo for the first time on the camp. I had a great nights sleep on it, it inflates well with the built in foam pump and packs into my 65l sack no worries. Really impressed and I'll be using regularly! The low weight is perfect for backpacking too.

Thomas O'Moore
great little bags.

I use two of these up front to help disperse some weight and keep handy bits ... handy.. smile.

I have in the past put two 1 ltr Nalgene bottles in them with no problems as I had a full size frame bag. The draw cord fits perfectly tight and snug just under the Nalgene screw lid which is fine as there's no need to have these fully enclosed as its just water bottles.

More often than not though now I have ditched the full size frame bag off my Sonder Camino Ti they are used for bits and pieces i require handy.

I will upgrade to the waterproof versions soon I think.

Chris
Excellent product

These are lightweight, of course, and just as important, comfortable to use. The set is held together with a brass screw thingy, and a mini carabiner, so quite versatile. And they come in a nifty drawstring bag, which I appreciated. An excellent piece of kit.

Lives up to the hype

I haven't bought a waterproof jacket with a membrane since the 1990's as they didn't live up to the hype for me. I tend to run hot and even the best membranes made me boil in the bag. Nowadays though, every once counts and my Paramo jackets are heavy.
I read the spec and the hype and decided to order a Balance in Blue, size Large. When it arrived I was amazed how small and light it was.
It's an athletic cut, just about enough room underneath for two thin layers, but little excess fabric to catch the wind. Sleeves are a good length but I find I could do with a just a little more room in the underarm area. The hood is a perfect fit with volume adjustment and a wired peak. The pockets are a good size and sit above a hip belt. But its the performance of the fabric which really matters to me.
First outing was on Bowfell in early April. Wore it all day over a Laika top (used as a base layer). Started off in wind and heavy rain. Climbing up the rain stopped but the wind got much stronger and colder. On the descent the wind dropped, the sun came out and it was hot. So I had all seasons in a day. Was I kept dry - totally. Was it windproof - yes. Did I boil in the bag - No. The jacket was bone dry on the inside when I took it off in the car park. That was a big, big surprise.
I wouldn't rate it as an out and out 4-season, throw anything at it in any conditions jacket but the performance you get at this pricing point is amazing. Brilliant job Alpkit.

Bobo
Good stuff

I disagree with the 2 star review. Seems to be based more on a lack of experience with dehydrated meals. Yes it can be tricky to get the right balance, buy the meals themselves are very good. I always add under what's recommended and to up if need be. This way you never fail. In the dehydrated world they have a nice advantage of being flat unlike mountain House or real turmat which sometimes comes in handy. If you want the best I'd go real turmat but you'll have problems finding them. These pouches are very decent.

A warmth machine

Picked one of these up in the Spring sale. Have been using a Synoment (ne: Heiko) jacket since early 2015 which has easily been my most used piece of kit due to its versatility. I wanted something warmer with a hood that would be just as versatile. I'm 5'8" with 43" chest and broad shouldered and the size Large fits me perfectly.
It had its first outing in early May. Standing on the summit of Ben Ledi in freezing conditions I was toasty warm with the hoody thrown over my baselayer and windproof. It's much warmer than the Synoment jacket. The hood could possibly do with some simple volume adjustment but its no big deal.
I chose the Reef colour as its bold and bright and it looks great.

Louderthanbombs
Top quality for average bods.

This is a very well put together shirt. The fabric is light and comfortable with lots of give and though the mesh panels are not obvious they vent well. Undoing the zip when hot brings air not just into but right through the shirt, cooling you down fast.
The collar is fitted but not too tight.
Sleeve and hem grippers work well, keeping everything in place without any pulling sensation.
The pockets are perfect, keeping things securely contained but nicely within reach. A great touch is is the 4th (or 5th if you like) pocket on the right hand side. This is very easily reached and a little smaller than the others, I have my multitool in there so it doesn't rattle against my phone in the centre pocket.
There's enough storage to get rid of your saddlebag entirely.
For me (a very average shape, not at all a cycling whippet) the fit is spot on. I have to size up in cycling gear and don't even bother with super skinny gear like Castelli, I bought my normal shirt size in this.

More colours would be nice, my only criticism.

Rachel (new to open water swimming)
Didn't feel chilly once!
Image

So, this feels like I'm cheating slightly as technically I bought a small man’s wetsuit (I'm 5'6'' and 55kg and it seemed to fit me slightly better than a lady’s medium, but only slightly). I really wanted to provide a review of this product for any female swimmers out there that feel the cold. I had been training for the Sound of Mull swim, a 2.6km crossing across a busy shipping channel, complete with tides and currents! I have recently moved to Mull so the idea of swimming the ferry journey felt symbolic, however as the big day drew closer, I began to question why I had chosen this rather challenging event as my first open water swim! Training had been tough, mostly because I simply couldn't cope with the temperature (about 9-10 degrees C in fresh water). I had borrowed a friend's swimming wetsuit, which was a little old, but in its day, worth £800! I repeatedly got out of the water shaking like a leaf, unable to get changed as my limbs were barely functioning. I couldn't imagine staying in for longer, where 8 degrees was the best we could hope for in the Sound of Mull in May. I googled 'thermal swimming wetsuit' and to my surprise Alpkit popped up. Having been a big fan of other products (down jackets, dry bags, camping mats etc.) for many years, I had no doubt that they would have done a good job of developing a new line, but I was still skeptical about feeling remotely comfortable in 8 degrees! Well, on the 6th of May I swam the Sound of Mull in this suit and it was fantastic. I can honestly say, I didn't feel chilly once, not when I first entered the water, nor after I had been swimming for an hour. The buoyancy distribution is an absolute dream and provides superb body positioning in the water. The furry lining makes the suit appealing as well as much easier to get into and is extremely flexible and comfortable. Even at the end of the swim, when everyone else was shivering, I was not and I know it is not because I don't feel the cold, it's because of this lovely suit - thanks Alpkit! smile

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.
