About Us

Alaska is a wonderful place to raise a family. There are endless places to hike, camp, bike, fish and roam. The seasons provide sun, rain, snow, cold and warm weather. Letting your children experience the wild is amazing, but you need the correct gear. A cold or wet child will not have much fun running down a trail. You will also be more willing to take them skiing in the single digits knowing there will be no whining! This site is designed to help you find gear that has been tested and reviewed by an Alaskan Family.
