Defend Yourself from Zombies... with a Flashlight?

DH Vancouver Staff Oct 09, 2014 8:00 am

VSSL has reimagined one of the most used outdoor survival and emergency tools: the flashlight. By combining a flashlight with a survival kit, VSSL Outdoor Utility Tools provides the essentials to prepare you for even a zombie apocalypse. Join the crew of survivors by backing VSSL on Kickstarter.

With the introduction of high efficiency LED lights, today’s flashlights no longer require several AA batteries or bulky C batteries. VSSL tools utilize the obsolete space by filling it with other survival gear: emergency shelters, first aid kits, fire starter, rope, fishing tackles and even, defence measures against zombies! A VSSL tool contains the necessities, all while remaining just over one pound of weight and maintaining the practical form factor of the traditional electric torch.

With a choice of four different products, you determine what is important for your situation and VSSL will provide the right tool. VSSL Supplies contains all the outdoor gear you need for short-term excursions, VSSL Shelter contains a lightweight 2-person shelter, VSSL First Aid has all the common items required to treat minor medical issues, and VSSL Zombies contains a high tensile aluminum spike created for killing the undead.

Made with seamless extruded military specification anodized aluminum and weighing in at just 18 ounces, each VSSL is the perfect emergency tool for any outdoor excursion – whether its a trip into the woods or “negotiations” with the undead.
