The YAK makes shopping for student backpacking gear EASY. The YAK includes more than 20 different items in a single kit, to reduce your time shopping. Each item has been selected for its form and function, to ensure your student is prepared. The YAK include 9 of the 10 Essential Systems (at this time we don't include food), Camping toiletries so there is no need to raid the household bathroom, a unique 70L long haul pack, that your student won't outgrow, and an integrated sleeping system with a 25° sleeping bag, sleeping pad and camp pillow (all included). Outfitting your student is now easy. We spent a lot of time taking the guesswork out of planning. As parents ourselves we want to make sure they are warm, dry, comfortable, protected, challenged and happy. This is what the Youth Adventure Kit does.
The YAK includes everything needed to get started.

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