This gear list is meant to help anybody who signed up for the MYAU or is interested in participating. It will help you getting an idea of what is needed.
Products that have been tried, tested and really work well in the Yukon winter get 6 stars (******). For obvious reasons I am listing a lot of Montane products. But I am not just doing it because they are our sponsor. They really do make great products and I have been selling their range a long time before they came on board as a supporter of the race. If you prefer other brands or can’t get your hands on Montane product, the fabric, fill and weight info can be guidance to find something similar.
Prices often change with every season. So, my apologies if the recommended retail prices sometimes are not up to date.
Please keep in mind that a list or other input can never cater to the needs of every racer. What may work wonders for one athlete may be absolutely useless for the next. It remains your responsibility to have the gear that is right for you.
Last but not least, the below list is not complete. There will be kit, clothing or other items you need/want that are not on this list.
