This lighter works great when you're at sea level, and if that's your goal then look no further. It is well built, and lights very easily when enough oxygen is present.

If, on the other hand, you take this lighter backpacking at elevations higher than 8,000 feet, then your mileage may vary. It takes a lot of convincing to light at all at these elevations, and you may find yourself without a flame at all.

The instructions advise you use premium butane fuel, and to set the fuel level to the lowest setting when at higher elevations, both of which I did. Unfortunately it still took 10-20 "clicks" before I got any sort of flame, which is unacceptable.

This is a great little lighter. I bought it because I wanted a lighter that had a waterproof cap. I went ahead and ordered this one.

I expected the cap to be metal but as other reviewers commented, the cap is plastic. Its pretty sturdy though.

The lighter is refillable and has a window in the bottom where you can see if its full with fuel or needs a refil.

The lighter has a clip that I'd probably never use in the field but its nice and the cover has a lanyard hole for tieing it down.

It is fairly wind resistant but I haven't tried it in any kind of storm conditions.

Most torch lighters don't work very well at high altitudes so consider other options for your survival kit if you're a mountain climber.

It has only one torch but shoots a very nice long and strong flame.

I've had no problems with this lighter since I purchased it about 6 months ago but then again I don't use it extensively.

It is black which is nice but you might consider a bright lanyard or bright tape if you're a frequent camper and you might drop it.

One final thing. It is a bit expensive. I think it would be entirely worth it if it were made of metal but at plastic -- hmmm. My jury is still out but I like it so far.

The lighter ships empty as is normal for these lighters -- so if you want instant gratification when it arrives, I recommend you have some butane fuel from the supermarket to fill your new lighter.

I hope this helps anyone.

I would have given this one 5 stars except it had a plastic top and bottom. I wouldn't say it's a cheap plastic (isn't all plastic cheap??), but I was expecting metal like the body. Works great otherwise and lit up on the first try.

I've had a Helios (other Brunton lighter) for about a year and have had absolutely no problems with it so I figured I'd get this one for back up. I filled it the first time noticing the need to completely remove the cap each time I wanted to light it and the plastic bottom. I lit it with no problem and put it into my car. When I went to use it a few days later, it wouldn't light and I noticed it was out of fuel. I immediately thought it had leaked out due to a valve malfunction. When I tried to fill it again, the fuel spewed out everywhere. There is now a crack in the bottom glass and someplace on top underneath the thumb button. I'm in the process of returning it to Brunton for replacement, but don't really want another one exploding in my car.

This is a very good design with a couple cut corners that reduce it to merely 'OK'.

First, while the fire nozzle area is well designed, the piezo element is not strong enough, and even a new lighter will not light each time.

Second, while it is very nice to have a completely removable cap, both the cap and body are made of plastic, and the threads are very fine and very short. End result: the threads are loose to begin with, and they strip out very quickly. If you hand it to someone and they just pull the lid off, it will come off... and after 2-3 times of this, the threads are simply gone, and the cap won't stay on.

If the piezo were stronger, and either the threads were better or it used a bayonet-style twist-lock cap, this would be a great lighter. As it is, it's just OK. I don't regret buying it, but don't think it was quite worth the $34 I paid.

This is poorest quality Butane lighter I have ever purchased -- one star is overly generous. I am very thankful that I tried this one out in the field before deploying overseas. I have returned the original and the replacement BRUNTON sent to me directly. This lighter cannot be relied upon to work within 3-4 attempts and does not function at all with any kind of moisture. The refill valve breaks frequently.
This lighter looks good and might impress a weekend warrior / weekend camper types -- but it is DEFINATELY not for PROS who live in the outdoors or field environments. BOTTOMLINE: It is unreliable. I would choose to carry matches before the BRUNTON FIRESTORM lighter.

I looked to this lighter to replace the now discontinued Coleman lighter I used to carry. The Coleman was 1/3 the price and worked a lot better.

I had no problems filling the lighter but did notice the plastics caps. I did assume that they were metal, as did others. You need to unscrew the cap to use the lighter, which could be problematic. Unfortunately, my first dozen attempts to get a flame failed. I had to turn down the fuel almost all the way down before it caught. Once it caught, I realized that it wasn't really a torch-like flame as was the Coleman. It's more of a Bic-like candle flame. That was really disappointing as I can use the Coleman almost like a pencil. A torch-like flame is also cooler to the hands because the flame is more directed and you can also use it upside-down or on its side. Not so with this Brunton.
