There was a time when we had a lot more free time, we worked in outdoor shops and got ourselves kitted out. We travelled, did some routes and life was good. Then our gear started falling apart, we were no longer students and we balked at the cost of replacement kit. We realised the passing years had taught us something, we had the skills to create something new.

And therein lays the story of how Alpkit was born. Born out of a passion for the outdoors and not accepting the price of high-performance gear.

Ordinary people trying to make some thing extraordinary.

And why Alpkit? It's just a name... we go to the alps, we climb, we ride, we swim, we run, we board, we visit our in-laws.. we make kit.. we didn't want it to be complicated.
