With the rubber gasket it does get tight enough to be waterproof and not once did I feel the need to tighten it further.
There is a little mirror on the inside of the cap but I think it's useless. If you're trying to signal someone the sun would have to be behind them since the mirror is so recessed in the cap it has a horrible angle to reflect.
There is also a tiny little flint glued to the bottom. I tested it out and after several attempts I got a cotton ball to light. I also wound up scraping off a ton of orange plastic as well as a portion of the flint. It's maybe 1/16" wide so every strike wore it down. Will it work as a last resort? Yes. Should you rely on it? No. You won't be able to use it too often and also you can't scrape it with a knife since the flint sits so flush to the bottom. I used a Light My Fire striker. Also, I was shocked it didn't just fall out since it's just glued on.
The description does NOT say it's a match striker. Safety match strikers contains phosphorous which is necessary to light them. Some reviewer complained that it didn't work. Duh, when was the last time you started a safety match on a flint? Get some strike anywhere matches if you want to do that!
After drinkable water and safe shelter, one of the things that seems to be near the top of all the "readiness" lists I've read, is the ability to build a fire, even in adverse conditions. Thus my kit includes some storm proof matches from UCO UCO Stormproof Matches, twin pack (50 matches) . Several people recommended getting a waterproof container for your matches and this case seemed like an inexpensive solution.
I'm not sure the mirror is big enough to be of any real use, but the case itself does what I expected. With the lid screwed tight, I placed it underwater, in a pan, for 15 minutes. I could detect no air escaping and when I retrieved it, it was bone dry inside.
My UCO matches were slightly taller than the main cylinder so I trimmed roughly an eighth of an inch off each match. I was able to get 16 matches (8 tip up and 8 tip down) into the container along with the striker sides from the original box. The strikers I taped together in such a way that they can't accidentally light a match.
The spare matches and strikers went with this case into a "lock and lock" container which itself is fairly waterproof. The entire package went into my 72 hour bag where I will leave it hoping I'll never need it.
For those of you who don't know what coin towels are, they are compressed towels that are the same diameter as the inside of these match containers. Pouring water on the coin towels expand them for use. Great for bug out bags.
