Dont take this seriously….because i dont !!

Alpkit delivery

At last my patience has delivered the rewards. I have waited probably 7 months for Alpkit to get some Filo down jackets in stock. So it was with great pleasure this morning that my waiting list email came through and I hit that order button.

An XL was ordered in blue ice colour, it should match my NF Mammatus jacket.

I came close to breaking just before Christmas after a friend put me on to some great jackets from PHD and Berghaus, but I held out. I am not I disputing that the PHD jacket is the best out there but lets put this into perspective.

PHD Alpine Down Jacket 660 grams, £202

Alpkit Filo Jacket, 740 grams, £75

If I was climbing Alpine peaks every weekend or off to Alaska then I probably would have went for the PHD jacket, but for occasional use in British mountains I think there was only one sensible option. £127 saved, result.

    What is PHD ? BTW the use of TLA’s (three letter acronyms) is too widespread IMO. LOL and ATB.
