This is the VSSL Camp Supplies II Kit, it contains 50+ pieces of essential equipment that can help keep you alive in the great outdoors and help get you rescued – if you ever need it.

VSSL (pronounced “Vessel”) was founded by Todd Weimer based on his experiences growing up in Canada’s remote northern wilderness. Weimer got good at packing light while still keeping all the essentials on hand, and he incorporated these lessons into his initial VSSL prototypes.

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.

As the name implies this is the second generation of the VSSL Camp Supplies Kit, it’s the new and improved update to the original but it keeps all of the important core functionality – including the military-grade aluminum tube that contains all the gear in the kit and doubles as a flashlight and compass.
