Alpkit goodies

Categories: Shiny new kit

Today saw the arrival of a couple of Filo jackets, just in time for the snow that we've been promised over the next few days. These follow hot on the heels of the Hunka bivi bag which I put my name down for at the Outdoors Show. My thanks go to the Alpkit team for their commitment to customer service and for their never-fail next-day free delivery policy.

This influx of new kit has rekindled the outdoors spirit in Chris - all of a sudden, she's reminding me that we've still got to sort out our annual "probably illegal" wildcamp together, and that we've got to get the kit lists sorted for our family summer holiday in Norway and Denmark.

  1. I was hardly out of my Filo last week on Lewis. Warm pockets useful for storing batteries in below freezing temperatures too. A feather or twa pops out, but nothing serious. Hood has been useful on occasion. Packs down small, and can be used as additional layer on top of sleeping bag, or as comfy pillow.

    I paid the non-sale price and thought I was getting a bargain.
