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.

by fromneeds improvement The striking surface is flimsy and not very rough. After an overnighter, lighting about 4 matches the surface is torn up. Also the matches could be a little stronger. The combo of a poor striking surface, weak matches, and a foggy morning resulted in a couple of matches broken during lighting. But I don't think there are any other strong alternatives for storm proof matches. Maybe just buy the matches only and come up with your own case and striker.

by fromLooking for a Match Kit? This is it! I've been looking for a GOOD match box for a while and I think I found it. This is a heavy duty container with a REAL o-ring seal. Heck, even the cardboard packaging is over-engineered. The three Coghlan's Plastic Matchboxes (thin plastic with flat washer for a seal) I have are now going to be used for other storage. The matches are similar to the REI Stormproof Matches which can be used as a refill for this product. The extra strikers inside are sealed in plastic and the striker on the side is very secure yet easy to swap out if needed. The only drawback is the lack of a ring or hole for a lanyard. It would be handy to have a secure attachment point.

by fromGreat flame Works exactly as you'd want. Acts like a sparkler, but without sparks. I'm happy this would work pretty much anywhere. Don't light one in your house unless you like the smell of phosphorous for the next 10 minutes... I did as an experiment, not a smooth move! The box clearly says to use outside and I believe it!

by fromSure fire... ha. OK slightly pricy for matches... but you could light a fire in a hurricane. Burns very hot for a decent amount of time. Multiple striking pads is a nice bonus.

by fromWorks great It's great.. Keeps matches nice and dry and it even floats. However, it doesn't work as good as a zip-lock bag. Plus I can get 10 gallon size freezer bags for $3.29. I feel like a complete idiot for wasting [$] for something that doesn't work as good as a .33 cent zip lock bag.
