The initial idea for VSSL started in a small Canadian town when founder Todd Weimer was a boy. He and his friend would adventure out into the woods. The two wanted to travel light, so they got used to making sure their essential gear kits took up as little space as possible. Drawing on these experiences of his youth, Todd decided to create compact outdoor gear designed to make travel simpler. VSSL’s products carefully balance quality and function for a result you definitely want to have in your pack every time you trek outside.
