If you need to survive a few nights in the wilderness or the aftermath of an emergency, you’ll want to have a flashlight on hand. VSSL’s electric torch brings the light and pretty much everything else you’ll need.
We’re longtime fans of the company’s survival kits (including one specifically created for a zombie apocalypse). Their newest iteration is a versatile take on the waterproof aluminum flashlight, which on its own provides up to 200 lumens and four different light modes over 20-40 hours.
But it’s also stuffed with 72 “camp essentials” — including a compass, Marine-grade rope, a first aid kit, water purifying tablets, waterproof matches, fishing gear, firestarters, a wire saw and dozens of other useful and potentially life-saving items.
While the VSSL isn’t small (though there is a Camp Supplies Mini option) the tubes weigh less than a pound.
The VSSL Ultimate Camp Essential Kit in black or silver is $105 during the Kickstarter preorders, a savings of 21%. Larger pack options are available (with savings up to 31%). The kits ship in May.
We've put in the work researching, reviewing and rounding up all the shirts, jackets, shoes and accessories you'll need this season, whether it's for yourself or for gifting purposes. Sign up here for weekly style inspo direct to your inbox.
