A key component of the YAK is the Essentials kit. We have included 9 of the 10 Essential systems because face it they are Essential, even on a student backpacking trip. You likely will not need all the essentials on every trip, we hope you never need the the emergency blanket, but in case you have a scrape, cut, blister, or need to improvise a bandage the included first aid kit, has you covered. Familiarize yourself with our essentials kit and be safe out there.
To complete your essentials just add water to the included 1L water bottle and food.
Before heading out always check your YAK, and make sure you have the Essentials covered.
