    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Light My Fire FireSteel Scout 2.0 Fire Starteris rated4.7out of5by10.
    Rated4out of5byfromYou can't go wrong.This is a great sparker. I only dropped it a star due to price. I have many strikers and this is the most expensive. I always use the sparker and save the lighter and matches for emergency or when I need a quicker start.

    Rated5out of5byfromFireSteel 2.0Once the protective coating is scraped off it'll spark with every stroke. Just put the rod close to the tinder bundle or fire starter and strike a few times and it should go right up. Oh, and bright flash when using in the dead of night lol

    Rated5out of5byfromBuy it.Used this for back country camping while elk hunting. Even with petroleum jelly cotton balls, tinder dry enough to ignite was hard to find. And the sparks are blinding when using at night... but it DID WORK EXCEPTIONALLY WELL. Won't carry matches ever again.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis thing is awesome!First of all, I picked up the Orange one which is slightly shorter than the red one shown. I'm not even sure the red one is still available. Regardless, this thing is super easy to use and boy does it throw some sparks. I've only had it a short time and it's done some work. Great for lighting backcountry stoves, Camp fires, grills... etc. Like some others have suggested, it does take a little practice to get the sparks to go where you want them and it does help to place the end of the rod on the kindling if possible as it can take multiple strokes to ignite your target some times. With thick gloves on, it can be a little tricky. When I purchased this product I considered it against some of the other similar fire starters available and I went with this one mainly due to cost, it's pretty cheap. But, I haven't regretted that decision at all. It gets the job done and saved me a good bit over it's competitors.

    Rated5out of5byfromyou get attached to itWARNING you will develop a bond with this little thing. It's a tough little thing that can hang out on your keyring, if you are used to having a little bit of a busy keyring, and go wherever you go. I bought one for an upcoming camping trip and got used to having it at hand. The striker makes a decent flathead screwdriver and it will spark under any condition I encountered. I did drive my buddies crazy blowing my whistle, though; it's addictive. When the camping trip came and we got chilly this little thing was MVP as I told everyone to pocket their lighters. We soon had a roaring fire going. I had to leave it behind for fear TSA would take it as I got on my flight. I miss it so I am ordering a new one! Great tool.

    Rated5out of5byfromDon't Leave Home Without It!Great firestarting utility to have on you. Very small and packs just about anywhere. I love starting fires with this tool and would rather use it than a batch of matches and lighter fluid...too easy!
