As for accompanying lighters to start the stove, I'll add a different idea than the Bic (which are reliable, cheap, and great to have with you)...

Get an inexpensive ($5 or so) refillable butane lighter (Ronson is the brand that comes to mind) that's used to light cigars. They have a torch flame instead of a soft flame and, therefore, nowhere near as susceptible to being blown out by the wind while lighting your stove. You can also hold it further away from the stove when lighting it.

Plus, since it's refillable, you aren't adding to the landfill with a disposable item.
