/ PSA: new Alpkit Filo jackets in stock and ready for Pre order
Buying gear new...
I suppose I used to think Alpkit made good gear a bit cheaper than everyone else, now they seem to sell good gear at about the same price.
Or are Alpkit's Filo better than I think?
What jackets do you mean? I only ask as I wouldn't mind a down jacket myself, but there are a few design niggles that put me off the Filo. I didn't think there was anything else out there for the price, albeit a price that has gone up a fair bit.
Check the go outdoors website for
North face nuptse Jacket for £113
and some (good or not?) North ridge jackets for under £100
Rutland outdoors site has Rab microlight for £116
Theres some others too within £40 on different sites.
Dont get me wrong I like the Alpkit Jacket Im just not sure how it compares these days.
The montane black ice has 50% in some stores £125 if you google it
