Rooted in the culture and spirit of getting outside, Vans, is showcasing its appreciation and respect for the Great Outdoors with the Vault by Vans x VSSL collaboration. Comprised of three classic Vans styles, paired with matching custom VSSL Outdoor Survival and First Aid Kits, this elevated collection supports a life outdoors, full of adventure and exploration.
VSSL was born and bred in the wilds of Canada and believes essential supplies should come in compact, weather-resistant cases built to withstand the elements - just like any other gear you prep for outdoor expeditions. Always encouraging a life spent outdoors, Vans recognizes the importance of having the right gear in any situation. Together, Vans and VSSL deliver the ultimate package: outdoor gear rooted in function with lofty design principles.
The cold-weather-ready Sk8-Hi MTE LX leads the pack in this collection, designed for warmth-retention and with moisture-wicking properties. Leveraging MTE 360 technology and backed by a water-repellent leather/suede upper, gusseted tongue and reverse lug waffle outsoles, each hi-top is accompanied by VSSL’s MTE Camp Supplies Survival Kit outfitted in custom graphics matching back to the shoe
Rounding out the offering are the Old Skool VLT LX and Era VLT LX, expertly crafted with Italian leather uppers and iconic vulcanized soles. The styles are paired with custom-designed VSSL Skate and Surf First Aid Kits.
Whether you plan to be outside for a few days or a few hours, the VSSL Kits have you covered. Each is made from seamless extruded military-specification anodized aluminum weighing about a pound, and feature a 200 lumen, multi-mode LED flashlight and an oil filled compass, as well as critical supplies for adventure.
The MTE Camp Supplies VSSL contains over 70 adventure essentials, including a pure Canadian beeswax candle, a fire-starting kit and a mini first aid kit. The Skate and Surf VSSL kits are outfitted with curated first aid components organized in a custom fabric content roll for quick and easy access. All kits are waterproof and meant to be put to the test.
