Having the right gear is essential for any wilderness trip. With much thought and preparation, the following list of survival tools have been selected to accompany us on our Yukon River trip because they have been used through the years and are proven to be excellent choices for any outdoor adventure.

Most of these items can be purchased directly from this website, excluding firearms. If we cannot supply these items to you, there is a link to available vendors.

More products will be added to this list as the organization of our trip progresses!
