Though it would be cool to get a discount/free stuff for my honest review, I did not get any.. This is all me spending my $ and giving my honest review.
In fact, the only thing that would make it better is if you had a little case or something to keep the packets in once you unsealed one of them and partially used it. I can't knock the product for that. If you wanted to you could pre-shave some of this into an altoids or other small conainer and just pinch what you need to get a fire going.
I pulled these out and took a match to it. It lit right away and burned the kindling pile and the Esbit cube.
Next day, I shaved some of the cube and it took a spark (using StrikeFire) and lit instantly! Wow!!!
These are individually wrapped and that made handling them very easy.
Wetfire cube has the consistency of very soft but crumbly cheese. It's interesting in that it's firm enough to be manipulated and used (did not come apart during storage, handling and transportation), but soft enough that I can easily shave it to catch a spark. Amazing!
You don't need to use the whole thing. Just enough to catch a spark and start your kindling. The actual amount you use will depend on your situation.
I do a lot of primitive camping, but using this felt like I was cheating! Well, I was. :)
I now have these as emergency back up when all else fails!!

The lighter fluid wouldn't start it. It burnt off before the wood would light. The wetfire tinder however, got that baby blazing. Now maybe you say the lighter fluid did all the work and the tinder came in for the knockout, but I don't think so. That little square really got things going. I say this is essential to have anytime you go camping. It's a game changer
