“Welcome to Alpkit Gateshead! Our new store in the North East is now open."

Andrew, Store Manager

We are cram packed full of Alpkit Goodies!!

Think of it as our North East base camp, a really well-equipped base camp with the entire Alpkit product range inside, from the teeniest Kraku stove to our fully featured Definition waterproof: you can jump around on the bouldering pads, try on a wetsuit, fit our bikepacking luggage on your bike or snuggle up in a expedition sleeping bag.

Want even more? You've got it, we also offer a few extra in-store services... well you did come all this way!

Store Team

Andrew

Andrew With a passion for the outdoors/travelling I have been lucky enough to enjoy a large range of sports over the years from winter walking in Scotland, gauge walking in Wales, fell walking around the Lake District, and more recently Mountain biking has fast become my favourite. All good trips end in the same way, a pint in the pub!

Neil

Neil Full time Mountain Biker, part time Roadie. Neil loves all aspects of cycling, getting out on his bike at any opportunity. He also throws into the mix a bit of hill walking, bike packing, and camping if he gets the chance.

Mick

Mick Mick has a good knowledge of long distance hiking trails and lightweight backpacking ,this year having hiked the GR 131 across Tenerife’s mountains ( ideal for a winter break !) the GR 221 across the Mountains of Mallorca and closer to home Saint Cuthbert’s Way from the Scottish Borders and the high level variant of the Cumbria Way across the Lakeland Fells. Mick also has a knowledge of local cycling routes, both on and off road, such as the Borders loop, Scottish C2C the Sandstone Way and Reivers off road routes.

Jon
