      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 fromNEVER failed us Some friends and I were camping/hiking above Rock Creek Lakes, CA (near 10,000 ft elev...and higher), even in windy cold condition...not one match failed to light, and were long burning. Im sold on these and may never use another brand again

      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 fromTested in the worst conditions I tested these in the worst wet and cold PNW Cascades backpacking conditions. The pack was brand new for the season, but in those wet conditions we only got a few matches to light, most of them broke when striking, and we never actually got a campfire going. That said, we brought no dry tinder so some of it was probably poor planning, not just the matches fault. I never had a chance to try them in other weather conditions, so they may work well for you in your situation.

      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.
