Is Alpkit gear any good?
I've got the Gourdon 20 backpack and the Jeanius water-resistant jeans, jeans work nicely, backpack is my preferred overnight ride pack and has lasted a year of use on and off the bike well.
I've also got the Tifoon (titanium spork) which I love. The service from them is usually super quick as well.Posted 8 years agoOrangeChammyMember
Gordon drybag – perfect commuter rucksack and 1 year on… going strong!
Drybags – do what they need too and cheap as chips
LED Lantern – awesome power, light and almost too cheap!
Filo jackets – just got one, really warm and fits well, perhaps not as tough / well made as my old north face and mate's Rab, but unless you can get these half price alpkit is the one.
Agree – stock is shocking, cant seem to keep up with demand, especially the Filo (had to wait until following year for mine and spend hours trying to buy during the frenzy). Delivery is fantastic though and quality much better than price suggests – if they could get stock sorted it would be perfect.Posted 8 years agohungry monkeyMember
got one of their down bags – the half zip 780g ones which are no longer made. 6 weeks round iceland, was almost too warm… in fact its so warm i sometimes wish i'd got one not as warm…
got a down jacket too which is nearly 4 years old now, very nice, still used regularly.
also got a bouldering mat of theirs which i need to use more…
top stuff, bottom prices.Posted 8 years ago
Ive got a Hunka bivvy bag, loads of dry bags, a couple of Slim Airic sleeping mats, a Lantern and a Gamma Headtorch. All are really really good, seem to be lasting well after a fair amount of use/abuse and are flippin good value. I cant complain about the stock levels as they seem to get new kit in reasonably quick. My first order from them had a nice handwritten "thank-you" on the invoice too!
Hopefully Santa will bring me a down sleeping bag too 🙂Posted 8 years ago
