  • Hello
    Yes the email is an h not a j .
    I love Alpkit and my husband especially should have shares in the company he buys so much off you guys.
    If you want models again I would love to get involved.
    I am 64 and do loads of walking.
    We live in Chinley but we visit Nottingham a lot as our family live there.
    Have a great day and Thank you for reading this.

  • Yes. …I am 73 in November….why are you stopping models at 70? I have used a lot of your kit which I like. ..2 tents, 3 x sleeping bags, 2 x duvet jackets, camping kit, clothing and not to forget my Broken Road mtb, which I have recommended to many bikers. Me in the last 3 years….cycling length of Spain….Camino de Santiago (or three)….Great North trail etc ..and still a bit of rock climbing…this May Highland 550 route solo, nice and slow for pleasure…and most of the people I met were well retired…especially on the last leg down the West Highland Way. Yes, I have a lifetime of climbing, mountaineering, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and walking experience behind me but Alpkit really does keep me going!
    You don’t have to still be ‘fast and hard’ to wear kit out – you may be missing a fairly large and affluent market!! I very much look forward to your reply.
    Ps Yes I still buy a lot from Go Outdoors for the easy stuff ..but it just doesn’t wear or last like Alpkit.
