Alpkit The Short Story

There was a time when we had a lot of time free, so we stumbled into the outdoors. We worked in an outdoor shop, saved some cash, and got ourselves kitted out. We travelled, did some routes and life was good. Then our kit started falling apart, we were no longer students and we realised the cost of replacing it. As we waited to pick up yet another x-xtra large fleece in the sales we patched up our waterproofs and wore an extra jumper in our smelly sleeping bags.

During this time we realised that the passing years had taught us something, we had the experience to create something new.

And somewhere therein lays the real story of how Alpkit.com™ was born. Born out of the passion for outdoor activity and not accepting the costs involved in getting technical clothing and equipment as superior as the best in our sacks. Four ordinary people trying to make some thing extraordinary. And why Alpkit.com™? it's just a name... we go to the alps, we climb, we ride, we paddle, we swim, we run, we board, we visit our in laws.. we produce kit.. we didn't want it to be complicated.




Hurly Burly
55 Hours by Dom Bush

After months of reconnaissance Kate Rew and Kari Furre from the Outdoor Swimming Society swam 10k on the Mawddach. The route is now an event: Brwlwm Bermo, the Hurly Burly. The "55 Hours" is our series of Mountain Journal films documenting inspiring new adventurous activities that people can fit in over a weekend – from leaving home on Friday to getting back on Sunday evening.
