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. Our designers have come full circle with the new 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 bewildering then these are the bags to look at first, check the weight, warmth and price-tag. They are 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 provides insulation without the weight.

Whether you are travelling around the world, walking along the tracks of the Lakes with a pack on your back, or just kipping over on your mate's floor at Uni, SkyeHigh makes the perfect partner. SkyeHigh is our most versatile bag; light enough to carry up a mountain, compressable enough to stuff in a kayak and warm. It achieves the balance by using durable technical fabrics with a light DWR coating. Being made from 40D fabric, the SkyeHigh has the most attractive price-tag maxing the warmth for your wallet.

ArcticDream Range

ArcticDream is for the extreme, harsh and most serious cold weather environments. Engineered to combine low weight, small bulk and incredible warmth these bags are ideally suited for extreme camping around the world. The bags are for true adventurists going to places where just taking a pee can be life threatening. With a more generous cut and with the vertical baffle detailing in the chest and foot which holds the goose down in place for longer, these are the most comfortable bags for extended time in a cold climate.

Harassed by a moose

“This feedback is long overdue! Just over two years ago myself, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker when to America for two months for two months on the now famous Wideboyz off-width climbing tour and road trip. We needed a tent that would accommodate the 3 of us for 2 months in a variety of weather and terrain. We took a Zhota. When you get hold of a new tent you always try and pitch it before you go away for obvious reasons. We foolishly didn't and so of course we ended up jet-lagged pitching it for the first time in the rain at 3am in the Wyoming wilds of Vedauwoo. But it was fine, it was quite easy. And so tentatively we piled into it wondering how we would fit and how we would cope with living in such close proximity to each other for 2 months. It was quite exciting discovering the various pockets and we settled down nicely with plenty of space, the only down side being Pete's ridiculously broad Alpkit Wideboy mat which enabled him to claim more than his fair share of space and Tom's dangerous bag of dirty socks and pants. As the trip continued we subjected the tent all sorts of abuses: It was harassed by a moose in Vedauwoo, It was anchored by one guyline to a bush in Canyonlands the night before the first ascent of Century Crack and then worst of all we left it untethered and unpegged in the desert above Moab and the whole thing and its contents blew away while we where out climbing. We were quite upset, it really had just disappeared into the desert. So we looked and we looked and we looked and then we found it about a kilometre away, upside down stuck in a tree. It was still intact, the flysheet still attached. There were some small rips in the flysheet which we easily repaired. So to conclude I think it is the best tent I have ever used and I have used quite a few.”

Performs well, excellent value.

Bought an XL after finding the standard one a little cramped. I'm 6'1" (185cm) and found my feet pushed against the bottom of the smaller one which made it difficult to keep the face opening where I wanted it. Definitely preferred the space in the XL and would happily sacrifice the weight.

I actually think a 'medium' one would be a good size - perhaps a few inches longer than the standard but without quite as much extra width as the XL.

In terms of the fabric, I've slept outside (garden only so far) in -2C frost and 14C conditions and was toasty warm in both situations. More condensation at the warmer temperature obviously (you need a temperature gradient for the moisture transfer to work) but not enough to soak my sleeping bag.

Perhaps only minor niggle I have is the drawstring - I find the string itself felt quite wiry and abrasive against skin and the drawstring clamp is quite small so I can see it being fiddly to find or use with cold or gloved hands.

All in all, this is excellent value and I'd highly recommend - the important thing is it offers a good night's sleep.

Edit: Since reviewing this originally I used mine for my 'year of microadventure challenge's so slept on hills, in woods, in fields, in a hammock in blazing summer, snow, frost and of course loads of rain and it is still working well and let me sleep in every case.

Fantastic bit of kit!

I've been using the Brukit for just under a year and I love it.
Fast, efficaiant and keeps me and a friend or two fed quickly whether I'm on a campsite with DofE groups or biving at the top of a munro.

Great bivvy!

The Hunka is my first bivvy bag, and I got it as a budget lightweight shelter for a 19 day through hike of california's john muir trail. Combined with a small bug net (which I barely used) it made a fantastic shelter: allowed me to look up at the stars on clear, dry nights and held off the elements on the wet ones. It kept me dry through thunder and hailstorms at 10,000 feet and kept the frost out on freezing nights. I had very little condensation inside if I was careful to cinch the hood tightly and not breathe in the bag. This product has me sold on bivvying, I would definitely recommend it.

Head torch

My gamma headtorch is the envy of all my friends. I am out in the north of sweden where it's cold and dark. My friends all have bought 'cheap' headtorches from here (£20ish) and my gamma is by far the best. It's been through snow, rain and -20degree temperatures and hasn't missed a beat. I've been cycling, running, building igloos, and have thrown it in my bag at the end of the day. I can't recommend it enough. 3 of my friends have already ordered their own. As for the lugs, on all 4 head torches they are 100%

AWESOME KIT. Superb value

£22.50 for a 20 litre waterproof, roll top drybag is a good price, but then add in that it’s full featured light backpack, with padded back pad, bladder pocket and decent padded shoulder straps (with adjustable chest straps) and waist strap. Then add in two mesh side pockets and elasticated compression cord running across the front of the bag.
The Gourdon 20 pack come drybag is outstanding. Alpkit, what an amazing bargain. Thanks.
2016 UPDATE: Been using for 3 years, has never let me down. I've even used it to carry Sony full frame camera kit (in a padded bag). Kept it all dust free and water tight during a tour of South Pacific

Alpkit Viper

“Have used the Viper for a year now (for up to 2 hour off-road training runs with my fell running club) in both wet, dry and freezing conditions. It's performed perfectly.
I tend to use the main beam on full or overdrive modes for running.
Not quite as bright as many of the awsome (and EXPENSIVE!!) headlights used by some of my other running club colleagues, but this light is perfectly adequate and seems of a robust design. Battery life is good, and DOES take rechargeable AAA's without modification.
I also ordered the Gamma to see if a rear battery pack arrangement made the headlight slightly more stable for running at speed and overall I now prefer the Gamma for that activity for that reason.
However, I can still recommend the Viper for night time off-road running in all conditions based upon on my experiences to date.”

1 year on, one of the hinges has broken so the light has been demoted to "spare", but it's still used daily for night time slower paced dog walking/outdoor night work etc.

For the price, you couldn't ask for more. I've had more expensive headlights break sooner than this one!

Love at first fall

I have one of the phud & mojo crash mats honestly couldn't sing the praises more, they have a large landing area, take the impact well & where cheaper that the competitors to buy but didn't lack in quality. You would be daft to not get one!

Polybagboy
Brilliant

I love this pad, its far better that the black diamond and metalious pads my friends have. It was also cheaper, better quality and has a larger landing area. You would be daft to go for anything else. However due to the size it doesn't fit in my boot of my car but that my fault becuase I have a Vauxhall Corsa

Day in day out ....

I have used a Gourdon 25 as a my bag for cycle-commuting for the last few years. In all weathers, day in / day out. It is without doubt the best rucksack I have ever had for the job. Waterproof, perfect size for my lunch, a book and a change of gear. I love it and would gladly recommend it to any of my cycling buddies.

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.
