Rab Alpha Direct Jacket

The new Alpha Direct Jacket is truly defined by our decades of experience in mountain environments.

During an alpine adventure every kind of condition can be experienced, from a warm walk or ski to the base of a route to shivering it out on a freezing belay. In these varied conditions the Alpha Direct balances moisture control and comfort when on the move with warmth and protection from the elements when static.

Designed to be worn as an outer or mid-layer depending on the temperature, this jacket adds exceptional versatility to your layering system. A tough and reliable Pertex® Microlight outer fabric secures the insulation and minimises wear. Key tech features include an under-helmet hood, two-way zipper and stretch fleece cuffs.

Camelbak MULE Hydration System

One of the best-selling, longest-running packs from Camelbak: everything you need, and nothing you don’t. The M.U.L.E.® has a slim design that keeps it light and manoeuvrable-even when fully loaded for a day of MTBing, it won’t get in your way

Since Camelbak launched the first M.U.L.E. in 1996, mountain bikers have been letting them know that it hits the sweet spot of size vs. storage: it’s lightweight, but big enough to carry three litres of water and a day’s worth of snacks and gear. Over the years, Camelbak’s designers also added air channels to keep your back cool, plus clever compartments for stashing tools, keys and electronics.
