Exploring the backcountry with a pair of Smith goggles and a Smith snow helmet? Preferably in a cool colorway? Then you can thank the VSSL and Smith team for another awesome product launch.
The two brands have teamed up to produce a set of gear designed to help backpackers prepare for their trip and get back to enjoying their winters.
The co-branded VSSL x Smith Backcountry Supplies Kit is a compact aluminum canister packed with supplies and repair tools for all winter trips.
Likewise, the kit complements Smith’s new Summit MIPS backcountry snow helmet, which is available in a co-branded VSSL colorway.
Todd Weimer, founder of VSSL, said staying prepared in the backcountry is critical as you need to not only protect against the elements but also prepare for the unknown.
“With Smith’s expertise in helmet design and our knack for curating survival essentials, the Smith x VSSL Collab is a really unique way to stay safe in your off-piste winter explorations while keeping the adventure going,” he said.
The Smith x VSSL Backcountry Supplies gear kit is a water-resistant, ultra-durable capsule of readiness tools inspired by the needs of pinnacle athletes, designed to keep even the most novice enthusiasts safe and prepared.
The weatherproof, indestructible military-grade aluminum cylinder includes the following:
- Smith Snow Repair Tin with Tenacious Tape, gear ties, zip ties, baling wire, a sewing kit, and a whistle
- Fire Striker Tin with a tethered Ferrocerium rod, ceramic striker, and five waterproof fire-starting tabs
- First Aid Mini Tin with bandages, antiseptic wipes, and safety pins.
- Repair Tape
- Ski Strap
- Wire Saw
- 4-Mode LED Light endcap with SOS mode
The Smith x VSSL collaboration is now available at select shops and online at www.vsslgear.com.
