Vedavoo and the Sportsmens' Alliance for Alaska are teaming up to offer a limited number of hand-built Vedavoo packs and accessories customized with the "No Pebble Mine" logo which displays support of the ongoing battle to prevent large-scale open-pit mining in the Bristol Bay, Alaska region. Proceeds from sales of the packs will go directly to efforts to stop mining Bristol Bay.
The line of packs and accessories was born of a custom, one-of-a-kind pack originally created by Vedavoo founder Scott Hunter at the request of the Sportsmens' Alliance for Alaska director Scott Hed. The Sportsmens' Alliance for Alaska has long been one of the groups leading the fight against the Pebble Limited Partnership and its efforts to develop a mine to extract the massive deposits of copper, gold and molybdenum that sits below Bristol Bay's pristine salmon habitat.
The lineup of "No Pebble Mine" Vedavoo gear includes the TIghtlines Sling Pack, Hip Pack, Handwarmer Pack, Soft-Top Leader Wallet and Pinch Pouch. All of the packs are red, like the Tightlines Sling Pack that Hunter originally built. Pricing ranges from $15 to $115. The line is only available directly from Vedavoo.
