They do burn, but...
on March 22, 2011
Okay, if you're looking for cheap windproof, waterproof matches these will work.
If you're still reading there's a few details you might be interested in:
1) The matches come with separate strikers in addition to the one on the cardboard box. This is good, as the one on the box was worn out after the very first match was struck.
2) The matches are somewhat difficult to light, but they do work, especially if you use the separate strikers provided. Keep this in mind if you intend to just throw a box into your kit.
3) Despite the negatives these matches do work like they're supposed to. I tried one out and dipped it in water, lit it, dipped it while burning and then pulled it out and it lit right back up. You also cannot blow these out, so in that sense they do work.
If I were ordering again I'd look for higher quality matches, but these will get the job done.
