The Hardy Survivalist Hip Flask Torch

flask1.jpg

We don't know about you, but we don't think Bear Grylls has taught us anything. 

Don't get us wrong - he's a smashing chap, immensely skilled at what he does, and the ideal partner for a poorly-planned trek through the Amazon (the jungle, not the website). But the closest we're ever going to get to being lost in an isolated wilderness is if we get off the bus one stop too early on a dim evening in Slough. 

At which point, we'd much rather have a VSSL Flask Light in our bag than a head full of half-remembered Grylls wisdom. Sure, it's got an oil-filled compass and a 40-hour LED flash light with SOS function, but they're not going to beat Google Maps and Uber. What sets the VSSL apart from the average wilderness kit is its in-built fluid flask, collapsible shot glasses and bottle opener. 

Flask

The VSSL Flask Light Crafted is the creation of one Todd Weimer - a creator of outdoor gear who received frequent requests from customers for a device that could hold "booze" rather than a first aid kit or emergency supplies. Crafted out of stainless steel (which won't change the flavour of your favourite survivalist tipple), the VSSL Flask Light isn't going to help you signal for a passing plane, but will improve your next leisurely walk in the wilderness.

Currently amassing funds on Kickstarter, you can order a VSSL Flask Light for around £37.
