Yukon Outfitters Outdoors Gear

Bigger than California and every bit as gold-rushy, the Yukon's very name has inspired freebooters, fortune-hunters, ramblers, and, uh, fishermen for decades. Yukon Outfitters' gear is designed for epic adventures in the far reaches of northwestern Canada, but it's priced just right for a car-camping trip to the state park.

I purchased the Tactical Alpha Backpack and the Rifle Scabbard the last time they were on here. Both are very high quality items. The backpack material is a little thinner than some similar packs, but at the price both items are a great value I think. Tons of pockets on the backpack and plenty of Molle webbing on both. My only disappointment was seeing Made in China when I opened the box.

Made in China = low prices
Made in USA = higher prices

Can anyone tell me about experiences with the hatchet? Thinking about grabbing one.

Throwing one is more fun, though.

I just picked up a hatchet. I'm hoping it's decent quality. I intend to take it on camping and backpacking trips but I figure it will be good to have on hand, anyway.

I need more specs on the Breakdown case! Like inside dimensions and pictures of the inside of the actual firearm compartment.

Anyone have anything good, or bad to say about the Bugout?

It seems like Kelty makes these Yukon bags,
but I can't find any info on the Bugout Bag itself.

Looking for something to carry a few small handtools, a drill & my lunch.

Thanks

Has anyone gotten some hands on experience with the Tactical Bug-out Bag? I'm interested in it, but would like some real opinions on it.

Damn you Woot!

Hi there.

Breakdown case is 25" wide and will hold most M4's with carry handles and your scope system. These are also great for breakdown Keltecs or smaller pistol carbine systems. Check out our YouTube video to see it up close and personal.

Thanks for looking!

Can anyone comment on the range bag? It looks nice but I wanna know if there's any support on the bottom to keep it from collapsing in on itself when it's fully loaded.

Purchased two of the Overwatch bags from two previous woots. One is my coaching bag, which carries my netbook, tablet, coaching credentials, minor first aid supplies, along with a multitude of other small items. I also grabbed one as a small bug-out bag.

Very solid bag (construction-wise) with a surprising amount of storage for the size.

but, you definitely feel every ounce beyond a certain point with the single cross-strap design. The lighter strength nylon, compared to other manufacturers' similar offerings, probably helps with this, but still a word of caution.

Obviously it wasn't a deal breaker, as I bought a second one, but the longer I wear it, the more I feel it. (vs. the two-strap, full-sized backpack I used to use)

Can anyone figure out/find out how much the hatchet weighs?

Just wondering if anyone can verify which shoulder the Yukon Overwatch Sling Pack sits on. From the pic it looks like the right but just wanted to make sure. Wasn't sure if Yukon made one that sits on the left.

You're not alone, it definitely appears to rest on the right shoulder. It shouldn't be switched/on the other shoulder. Most slings hang over the right.

I got one last week, it does hang on the right shoulder.

I really, *really* like it. I have been searching long and hard and spent too much money trying to find, pretty much, this bag.

Just ordered another, if that tells you anything.

Soon to come: CapnK's Woot page of slightly used other backpacks and bags... ;)

I ordered two Bug-outs last time they were offered up. This is a knockoff of the Maxpedition DoppelDuffell, which I do not have. I do have other Maxpedition bags though, so I am generally familiar with the quality and build. The Yukon Bugout is a decent bag, but has some flaws. The main handle is wrapped in some kind of "foam". I expect this will eventually start breaking down and leave foamy bits all over your hands. I intend to cut it off before that happens.
Also, the Bugout has a liner. The interior "dividers" don't zip directly to the exterior shell of the bag, which is reasonably thick. They use a really thin poly liner that I expect to start falling apart fairly quickly. Good bag for hauling clothes and such, not so good for lots of weight and/or pointy bits. We'll probably use them for our hurricane fleeing bags... they'll get loaded and sit there without getting much abuse most of the time. Other than the couple of things I specifically mentioned, the rest of the bag looks to be decent. While the zippers and clips aren't YKK, they seem reasonably hefty and I expect they'll hold up to everyday use. Overall the quality is a step above WallyWorld kids backpacks, but nowhere near what you'll get with the name brand gear these imitate. However, the price is right. Worth $50, just don't expect it to compare to a $200 bag.

Does anybody have any experience with the OD green rifle scabbard?

A quick search gave links to amazon reviews, but are no longer there. I guess Amazon used to sell them, but they no longer do?

It seems well constructed. Although, by measurements alone it'll be a couple of inches short than my Sig M400, I think it'll do the job.

I pulled the trigger on one. No pun intended. We shall see.

Here's a youtube link. I think the video was made by the manufacturer.

Can two sleeping bags be zipped together??

I purchased the Overwatch bag from the last woot. It does hang off the right shoulder. I really like the fact that the water bottle holder is removable. My only complaint is that it hangs on the right shoulder. From playing in bands most of my life, I am used to weight on my left shoulder. Or if I was hunting, I can't shoulder a gun with the sling on my right. Otherwise this is a really good bag.

can anyone confirm the dimensions of the tactical range bag? the specs say 26 in high but it doesn't look
that high.

to the woot staff member that screwed up the back2skool code so I could get a lot of nice things for free - thank you.

Why am i not surprised the Bugout Bag was first to go. Years from now we'll look back at the 10's and laugh. "Apparently we were all frightened about an imminent zombie apocalypse or nuclear winter. Whichever came first, we were prepared with water-proof matches, nuts, and lots of bandaids."

Actually it was available for days and was the third to go

I bought the rifle scabbard and the bug-out bag last time around - as previous commenters have mentioned, they are not quite up to the standards of Maxpedition or 511. Nevertheless, they are well made and a good deal for the price; if you need something that will survive combat conditions, go with the expensive stuff - for everything else, these will serve quite well, and without the three-figure price tag.

One warning, though - DO NOT expect the color of the item you receive to match the color you see in the pictures Woot puts up - the ones I received were both dark Olive Drab (aka Army Green), not the lighter colors seen on the product pictures.

I needed a bag to hold some hand tools, a note book, and my lunch,
I could care less if they called it an anti zombie apocalypse encounter bag,
I'm not going to fill it with MRE's & gas masks.

Its a bag.

I'm interested in the tactical breakdown case. Can someone with experience give a review?

Picked up the scoped rifle case last time these were up, and I'm a fan. Just big enough for a typical 16" bbl AR, and I like the reversed opening.

Only thing I'd like to see changed would be some more general-purpose pockets on the outside and maybe some pockets or elastic loops on the interior to hold small items. At the price, it's hard to complain, though.

I got this thing in the mail and gave it to my dad, he takes a couple wacks at some dried wood laying around in the back yard and chips it after 5 seconds. He is an experienced woods man. We both laughed. I guess you get what you pay for.

I'm leaving this comment behind as I'm sure that Yukon Tactical products will be here on Woot again.

First off, let me start by saying that I rarely post reviews on products. They either have to really suck or exceed my expectation based on their description, intent of usage and ultimate value.

I received today my OD green Rifle Scabbard. Shipping was very fast btw.

I must say I'm impressed with the product. It's not exactly the same as similar items from 5.11 or Maxpedition, but it comes close. For the $35 I paid, I'm way more than happy.

Very sturdy construction and as the picture shows; plenty of MOLE loop attachments.

I'm sure some outdoor or SOG personnel would chime in that this scabbard wouldn't hold up to some rigorous tactical training or environment. Then again I don't know too many SOG members that would carry their primary weapon in a scabbard.

I spent 10 years in the Army along side infantry and IMHO this product would hold up pretty well.

So, if you are looking at purchasing the Yukon Tactical Rifle Scabbard and you are looking for a solid method of transporting and protecting your priced rifle to and from the range or the hunting fields; just read again the paragraph above and pull the trigger.

My only "complaint" about this scabbard would be that it doesn't seem that the rifle, my Sig M400, can be carried with a 30 round mag inserted. Nothing that an x acto knife, some OD green thread, strips of Velcro and patience couldn't fix in less than 30 minutes.

Thanks Yukon Tactical for an excellent product at an excellent price. An thanks Woot too!

How ridiculous

26.5" H x 13.5" W x 3" L

So why won't my 26.1" KSG fit?? (It's not even remotely close!)

So Woot gives the outside dimensions of a case meant to hold something internaly................that makes ZERO sense.
