This is the VSSL Nest Pour Over Coffee Kit, it’s an all-in-one camp coffee solution for two people that is only the size of a standard water bottle.
Weighing in at 21 oz, this coffee making kit is ideal for hikers looking to keep their pack weights down. It’s also well-suited to motorcycle overlanders, and anyone going on a road trip on-road or off who wants to minimize weight and clutter.
The idea for the first VSSL products came about in part due to the fact that modern LEDs are able to produce so much light with so little power, meaning that all of the batteries in those hefty tubular flashlights of yesteryear are no longer required.
All of this potentially empty space inside the flashlight gave Weimer an idea – why not fill it with essential survival, first aid, or camping supplies? Hell, why not fill it with whisky? So he created his own VSSL flashlights to do all of those things and more.
