Alpkit Filo

My toasty new down jacket, the Alpkit Filo.

AlpkitFiloNemo

Now I can turn the heating down in the flat and it'll pay for itself in no time. Oh, and get out in in it when taking photographs, and maybe, just maybe, when I get off my backside to do some hiking and hillwalking again.

Nemo blue, size XL.

To do - CG in outdoor background before publishing this.

nope even with the goggles, you still look like Cameron in a down jacket.

Sally & John - am I missing some innuendos here? I'll need to catch up with your twitters.

I'm glad you're down South too, Darren.

Duncan - wander around with the hoody & shades on in any SE shopping centre and you'll find yourself the centre of attention, mostly from security personnel
;-)

So might as well take advantage of it. Heehee

Like David Mery. As he wrote, at least he was still alive.

I am eager to read about your experiences in the real wild. Looks promising that jacket. What about water resistance? Heard about some water in the highlands.

insert excuses/reasons that I've not been out hiking in the wild places since last Autumn :(

Though I've sprayed it with Nikwax, I'll need to get Nikwax's down waterproofer in to the feathers, and then test it in the heavy rain - which we sometimes get in Scotland ;)
