OUR MISSION

A flashlight is one of the primary tools for camping, overnight outdoors or emergency/survival situations. In the past, the flashlight handle was required to hold the batteries needed to power inefficient bulbs.

Today, high efficiency LED lights power quality flashlights. The battery requirements are substantially less, and the handle can now be used for other useful purposes. VSSL Outdoor Utility Tools were created to utilize that now obsolete space, while at the same time maintaining the practical form factor of the traditional torchlight.

Our tool is intended to evolve. We’ve provided contents we feel are essential for challenging situations, but we are confident our customers will really see VSSL as just that; a container used to house items of importance to its owner.

You determine what is important for your situation and we’ll provide the right tool.

 


OUR FOUNDER

I grew up comfortable with being outdoors; my earliest and fondest childhood memories are of times spent fishing, hunting, camping, hiking. My proving ground was Canada’s relentlessly cold winters, bookended by a few months of scorching summer heat and two other “seasons” that often only lasted a few weeks.

As kids, we’d make our own survival gear and test ourselves by heading out into Mother Nature’s extremes. It was exhilarating, educational and incredibly scary all at the same time. Looking back now, it was those experiences that taught me the valuable lessons that I’ve carried into adulthood; be prepared for the conditions, improvise when required, but above all keep a positive mental attitude when the sh*t hits the fan.
