Fire starters, strikers, kindling, etc. - all things that you should have in your kit and should have redundancies for. Living by the "two is one and one is none" philosophy. The Exotac firesleeve is the perfect compliment to this philosophy and in many ways a solution to it.
The main reason we carry redundant items is because in a SHTF situation, Murphy's law will always find it's way to your front door, campsite or bug-out location. Mother nature is cruel and the world always has a way of ruining things for you. Particularly, water. Water will ruin your kindling and your matches (non-waterproof ones) and your lighters. And so for that reason we sometimes carry all of these things in waterproof pouches and in baggies and carry them in different areas of our pouches and so on and so forth. However, throw a Bic lighter inside an Exotac firesleeve and you can rest easy about your source of fire. This sucker fits very tight around the lighter and is waterproof. There is also a plastic piece you can flip up over your lighter button so you have continuous flame without getting your fingers burnt.
It's is definitely worth picking up a couple of these to throw in your pack so you know that you have a waterproof lighter you can start fires with even if your pack takes a bath in the river or you get monsooned on. Only con I could think of is the price. I think $10-12 is more accurate than $16.
Cons: I wouldn't trust the cap to stay connected to the body if hung by a lanyard, so I modified mine with a shock cord through both cap and body. The Firesleeve container adds bulk to your pack, but it is better than discovering that your lighter is empty when you need it. Finally, the hold-down strap is not convenient to use.
It also seems really really expensive for a piece of rubber and plastic. I wish they made this for the mini BIC and it would probably be 5 stars, but for normal sized pants and keychains this thing is HUGE. It dwarfs everything else on my keychain and has made it very cumbersome
