YAK text for homepage

Outfitting your new scout, camper or backpacker is no easy task. As parents and leaders recommending to parents we have to make more than 40 different decisions to get everything needed. As a parents and scout leaders we want to make sure they are warm, dry, comfortable, protected, challenged and happy.  If this is in place then they can enjoy themselves and get to know the outdoors.

At HMWOutdoors we make getting that first gear set easy.  The Youth Adventure Kit (THE YAK) includes everything your young person needs to get started.

We researched and developed the right gear so when your and our children and grand children go on an adventure, they are protected, prepared and ready.

Our gear will:

  • Keep them warm and toasty on those nights away, with our 25°F Sleeping Bag
  • Keep them dry during a downpour, with our multi-function waterproof ripstop nylon Poncho
  • Keep them comfortable on long treks, with our well fitting York 70L Backpack
  • Keep them protected after cuts, scrapes and scratches, with our well stocked individual first aid kit
  • Keep them occupied during the lulls, with a travel checkers/chess set
  • Keep their path bright, with our ultra bright 1 Watt water resistant LED headlamp
  • Keep their bodies strong, with our durable mess kit.
  • Keep their teeth clean, with our included travel toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Keep their bellies full, with our available cooking stove and pots.

    For these reasons we created the Youth Adventure Kit, THE YAK. Your YAK includes EVERYTHING a new scout or backpacker.

    When we say everything, we mean EVERYTHING. In building this kit we consulted BSA, GSA, USMC, high school trip planners, outdoor experts, avid hikers, and campers, through hikers and day hikers, moms and dads.

    We believe so much in this kit that our own children use it when they are out adventuring.

    How far will your adventurer push themselves, how far will you?
