VSSLs (say "vessel") are cylinders stashed with smaller cylinders stashed with everything you might need to survive and present yourself as a functional human being in the outdoors. Even if, like me, you can barely walk from your mama's house to the bus stop without getting lost or skinning your knee. So click here and enter to win a complete set of VSSL outdoor utility tubes, including one each of the company's Supplies, First Aid, Shelter, and Zombie editions. A $280 value!

This giveaway is open to US & Canada residents only.
