Gritstone gear. Birthday belaying bundles. From serious sends to social Sundays, we’ve been asking our Alpkiteers and Alpkit staff to put together a gift guide for climbers. And not forgetting our customer favourites too!
Our best climbing trouser. Organic cotton. Barely there. And tailored for toe-hooking, ninja-style-agility on the wall or on the gritstone. Photographer Joe bought a pair of Bloc trousers for bouldering but they were so comfy he bought another, and "has pretty much lived in them ever since. It makes wardrobe choices easy in the morning: 'chalky Blocs or not chalky Blocs?'".
Daniela and Paulo Teixeira were the first to summit Kapura South Summit (6350m) in Alpine style from its South Face. And they’re Alpkiteers. They think “outdoor activites would never be the same without a good, strong, black coffee!” That’s why, as well as climbing, the MyMokka is good for their wellbeing – “Alpkit thought of everything”.
The Katabatic is “definitely an all-rounder. Warm and super resistant fabric. Perfect for rock climbing, perfect for ice-climbing, perfect as a belay jacket…even perfect to go to the pub”. Daniela and Paulo are on our wavelength!
Crossword clue, 4 across. Handy for wet weather belaying (6-6). Answer: it’s the Haline Gloves. A recommended by climber and Design Tech Gabe, they’re waterproof to keep the elements away. And they have leather palms to protect your hands when belaying.
Plastic-free, compostable wrapped with flavours inspired by British national parks. Outdoor Provisions bars are perfect for keeping the energy up for weekend multi-pitch adventures.
