5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect in a Pinch!, February 13, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: UCO Stormproof Matches (Sports)
Length:: 0:31 Mins

This is a demonstration of the UCO matches I purchased here on Amazon.com. As you can see they work fairly well! These are a must have for the backpacker/camper, I also purchased an Exotac MatchCap Match Case/Safe BLACK to accompany these matches. I was able to fit 13 matches, and I only had to cut about 1mm off the wooden end to get them to fit.

I don't know why, but I chuckled when you gave the thumbs up at the end.

Nice review (props for the "thumbs up"!). But if you haven't noticed, Exotac has a new match case called the "XL". It hold almost twice as many matches and has a vastly larger striker. Much better than the original case.

Thanks to all that have responded to my video! These are beefy matches and work perfectly as advertised, I also recommend a good compass as well. I have recently purchased Cammenga Model 27CS Olive Drab Lensatic Compass. Yes it's a little on the pricey side however I believe in quality and these are made for the US military. It's not the Tritium version but uses phosphorescent paint and with a quick few second blast from a flashlight will let it glow, it's also much cheaper than the Tritium version with the same components and as Tritium only has a 12.32 year Half-Life I did not want to buy a new compass in 12 years. However with that said, the Cammengas are fluid free, waterproof, work from -46C-71C (-50F-160F) and a host of other features that put Cammengas a step above.

To Mr3dfx: You are very nice, and helpful for me a novis in emergency supplies. I am trying to get enough for my two children, and a daughter-in-law. A total of 4 people, and my cat. My son has three dogs. He better step up and make sure they would be ok also. I will check out the compass also. Thank you again. You may be a life saver.

Very helpful video. Does it do well if they're wet before hand then you attempt to light them?

Actually, the 12.3 year half life does not mean the compass loses its glow in 12.3 years, it will be at half brightness. The practical life of the tritium compass is more like over 25 years. 24.6 years it will be at 1/4 brightness. Based on my 16 year old tritium compass still having more than enough brightness to use, it may still be usable after 30 years.
