Maximum Preparedness, Minimal Form: VSSL Launches First Aid Mini

ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia – June 8, 2020 – VSSL, creator of modern tools for the outdoors, today introduced the First Aid Mini, an everyday-carry first aid kit housed in a waterproof, military-grade aluminum “vessel.” The First Aid Mini is the latest addition to VSSL’s line of ultra-compact, ultralight, and virtually indestructible gear kits.

“The First Aid Mini is an indispensable first aid kit you can take everywhere and count on when you need it most,” said Todd Weimer, Founder of VSSL. “We wanted to create something that was easy to carry, yet completely reliable and durable. We relied on expert advice from local emergency first responders, who helped us select only the first aid supplies that will be the most essential and useful – from your backyard to the backcountry and everywhere in between.”

VSSL First Aid Mini combines rugged durability with a sleek, minimalist form factor. The contents have been intuitively organized for quick access in clearly labeled gear tins. The tins are housed in VSSL’s signature military-grade aluminum casing, ensuring the contents stay secure, dry and functional until they are needed most. The kit measures 6.75 inches in length and weighs only 9.9 ounces, offering maximum preparedness in a compact and stowable format.

The full contents of the VSSL First Aid Mini include:

  • 6 antiseptic wipes
  • 2 wound closure strips
  • 2 large bandages
  • 2 knuckle bandages
  • 6 blister pads
  • 8 pain medication tablets (acetaminophen and ibuprofen)
  • 2 disposable thermometers
  • 4 safety pins
  • Antibiotic ointment, burn and pain cream
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Tweezers
  • Razor blade
  • Sewing kit
  • Adventure tape
  • Emergency whistle

The VSSL First Aid Mini (MSRP: $70) has a lifetime warranty and is available now at select retailers and online at
