Everyone knows that durable gear is essential if you spend any time outdoors. But the laundry list of choices makes it hard to decide what gear is actually up for the task, and what you can leave behind for easygoing adventures.

Last year, we spent some time with VSSL, a Canadian brand building durable, sensible gear for the outdoors that’s up for rugged antics. And its latest release, dubbed the Essentials Collection, embraces small-but-mighty gear kits that contain the basics you need to enjoy the outdoors.

Housed in the same waterproof, virtually indestructible, aircraft-grade aluminum vessels we’ve come to expect from VSSL, the latest collection features four multi-use kits designed for different tasks. Take a look at each one in greater detail below, and save 10% on your next order when you sign up for emails from VSSL through their website.
