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.

Out of 5 stars this head torch gets 10 !!!!!!!!!
Out of 5 stars this head torch gets 10 !!!!!!!!!
1st - it is incredibly bright on both the main beam or the two smaller close up beams.
2nd - multiple light options on both beam settings very useful in a variety of scenarios.
3rd The price - nothing else comes close to this head torch for under the £20 - try and find another full price head torch with the spec that this has
4th lightweight, cool colours, ease of use.
5th Alp kit service - batteries are included, free delivery, quick delivery - why would you want to spend money anywhere else!
this was my first order with alp kit - it will not be my last.
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases.
"I got a couple of these, oh, must be easily ten years ago. I got the 2nd one because the first was so good.
Main beam is fiercely bright with a massive range and good focus, but it's made a bit more short range usable by having a low setting. Then for reading etc, the little let's are superb, WITH a choice of red and green, which helps maintain night vision.
Separate battery pack helps with battery life and the fact that there are 3 triple A's in it.
There IS a weak point which is the latch on the battery pack lid is a bit fragile, but that's easily rectified with a cleverly applied cable tie.
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases. 5 stars."
One Comfy Mat
I chose this over a NeoAir from thermarest. The Dumo is a bit bigger when it comes to pack size but there is a HUGE saving.
Was I any less comfortable on this? No way.
Getting another one as soon as I can
Mine got slightly smelly after 3 weeks of constant use in the Himalayas. I'd have hated to have smelled some of the poly thermals my friends were wearing
I've slept under it, made a social area in the campsite, kept gear dry under it. Great for creating a screen to allow some privacy too.
The attachment points are what sets this apart from some cheap tarp for me. It makes it so easy to rig up and you have confidence in their strength.
Value and reliabilty
Great for stuffing a down jacket in. Great for protecting £30/40k worth of electrics on a speedboat.
Quality construction. Never had to worry about a leak.
Easy to manage
Superior to the thick tin foil you get with stoves in every way.
Nicer to use. Easy to clean and fold away. More durable.
My girlfriend stole this off me as soon as I got it.
I hope she doesn't burn her house down.
Really comfortable !
lightweight and of adequate width handlebars, it allows a good grip on technical descents and different positions useful on steep climbs. The lower handle not tired wrists and cyclist load is well distributed
As I've said above, superb product! Very lightweight & small enough to not even notice it in your pack. A 240g gas canister lasted for 3 days, making several cups of tea a day, cooking bacon & eggs in the morning & soup each evening.
Very good price for such a well built product. Very impressed.
A great lightweight windproof layer. I'm not the slim racing snake I was and find that breathability rather than out and out waterproofing is the way to stay dry for me. at 6'1" and 16st I produce a lot of humidity when on the move and this is perfect for me. A good wicking layer underneath in cooler wetter weather and this keeps the breeze of but manages the moisture well. Using it on my adventure bike and under my summer motorcycle kit for the night time trip home for those chillier evenings when you need to keep the breeze of at 70 mph not totally bulk out with a thick fleece layer for the chilly commute. Perfect for the bigger boned gentleman and despite my bulk it is not tight at XL. I have to say that Alpkit make great clothes for my size without stupid long sleeves.
I've had this stove for a while, used it quite a bit, and generally am very happy with it. When it arrives the bag is a bit tight but it does stretch after use. The neoprene sleeve doesn't help in that respect but you wouldn't want to be without it as it means you can pick the whole thing up immediately after heating. The size means it's ideal for boil in the bag type meals. I mostly heat water in mine, and put meals in the water or make them with it. For that it's ideal. Gets a litre of water boiling in no time. Piezo ignition is great too. The way the stove is designed to clip onto a gas canister when in transit means the whole thing packs away pretty small. I've got quite a few stoves and this one is my current favourite. Can't fault it, excellent value for money.
Extremely impressed with this bit of kit, quality build and very bright. Great service from alp kit would highly recommend it
Best poles in 10 years
Held my mate's poles as she climbed over a stile, and couldn't believe how much lighter hers were than mine. Bought myself a pair asap, did 30miles in the Pentlands with them and then the Cateran Yomp (54 miles over 24 hours). I love them. They weigh NOTHING. Most comfortable poles ever. How can something so light be so sturdy?
Gravitas 1st use
SIzing is on the athletic/ slimmer side so suited to wearing over lighter weight clothing rather than thicker fleeces etc. Consider this on sizing when buying.
Hood well designed and cinches nicely with a single draw chord to the back of the head, wired peak works well to keep eyes and vision clear.
Personally feel it could do with a slightly longer back or overhaul lower hem, but this a minor gripe.
Great sleeping bag
I purchased the Skyehigh 900 long in December 2015 as my old down sleeping bag had pretty much given up on me. I spent quite a long time deciding on which bag to go for and eventually settled for this long version as it would give me extra space. I have used it on several occasions, mainly on a weeks long camping trip in the Lakes and have so far been really pleased with the item, its really warm and extra space (I'm 6ft 1) is amazing. I would highly recommend this sleeping bag to anyone who wants a that added space in their sleeping bag.
Month in Peru
My daughter has just used one of these for a months trip round Peru. Amazing kept everything dry, never let her down. Didn't expect to get it back in one piece and fully working, but it stood up to everything airlines, buses, trains and mules could throw at it. Worth every penny.
I've read negative reviews on the web and I reckon the peeps writing them would never be satisfied with anything! The Brukit is a complete winner: price, build, quality and performance. Those that are complaining about boil times taking a few odd mins and secs more than a jetboil: get a life, jeez!
Fantastic bit of kit,love it and the great service Alpkit always provides.Here's to my next purchase.
Best Bivvy out there
I've used this while cycling John O'Groats to Lands End. It's super light weight and keeps your sleeping bag dry as can be. Cannot recommend highly enough. I'm 5ft 7in and the bag fits comfortably. Any taller than 6ft then the XL is for you.

A Sleeping Bag for Every Season
There is no shortage of different sleeping bags out there, with a variety of fillings. Why would you consider spending more on a down sleeping bag over all the others?
