As the snow's slowly drain away in the rivers and lakes of the UK we are constantly reminded by your photos and stories we are right in the middle of the trekking season.Alpkit was born from a passion of providing exceptional products at desirable prices to help our customers go further and achieve more. Whether that enables you to afford lighter equipment allowing you travel further or whether is allows you spend more money on your trip because you didn't need to spend as much on your gear, we're happy to be of help.

Perhaps you have signed up for a charity trek or are planning your own expedition, we can help you with much of your equipment needs. OurSkyeHigh sleeping bags and Filo down jacket are the perfect solution for high altitiude conditions and is frequently carried to Everest base camp, around the Annapurna circuit and other places even further off the beaten track.Our staff are experienced to help with queries on the conditions you may face and the equipment that will help you negotiate them. Drop the team an email, call them up or if you are in the area pop into our showroom. Our customer service team pride themselves on giving honest advice, they'll recommend the kit they think will be right for your trip and if we don't sell it they'll recommend alternatives.

If you would like to visit our showroom to see the complete range of equipment under one roof we are only minutes from jnc26/27 of the M1. All our tents are available to see pitched and you can kit them out with a selection of sleeping mats and sleeping bags to find out what works best for you. We are also carrying our full range of Filo down jackets to try on for size. If you are heading out to some of the bigger ranges this spring, you will want winter gear so think ahead as this is the ideal time to get the right kit.

Seeing gear in the flesh has many advantages, you can see how light it is, see exactly how much you can fit in your duffle and make sure that everything works together as a system. With everything under one roof you can get a better idea of how to build up your expedition system, and you may be surprised by how affordable it all becomes.

Should there be any particular requests then perhaps phone ahead and make an appointment, some days can be hectic and we want to be able to give you the time you need so you have what you need for your adventure. Tea and coffee is never far away.
