Recently we had the opportunity to get together with our friends at Mizu for what they deemed a #mizumission into the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.
When Jussi called our own TJ Bottom to help plan the trip, he jumped at the opportunity to help identify, plan, and execute a few nights of good old fashioned brink-of-winter camping in his home town.
We were super excited to put VSSL Supplies, Mini, and Flask to the test on this trip. TJ customized his Mini with a few tins of his choice (Fish Tackle, Rope/Razor, and Mini First Aid Kit). Much to our excitement, Jeremy and Jussi started immediatley using VSSL for exactly what it was intended for: Mending a minor foot wound, using the rope to tie their gear to their bags, starting fires, purifying water, and even attempting catching a trout in the waters of Lake Blanche.
This was the ice-breaking trip for the VSSL Mini, and it shined (Literally)! Doubling as an indestructible, reliable kit with essential tools, as well as a reading light, conveniently clipping to the roof of the one man quarter dome tent. Even as the wind picked up pretty heavily before the team called it a night; the mini endured, the fire flourished, and despite many drops, blow-overs, ambers and ash, every VSSL withstood the conditions, unblemished.
