Customer Review

on June 13, 2011
These matches are very impressive for use as either emergency matches or matches for the outdoors while hiking, biking, etc. The package includes two boxes of 25 matches with 2 extra striking strips that can be put in a waterproof carrying case along with your matches (keep the plastic cover on it so there are no accidental strikes). I took one out of the package and gave a little try. It lit very quickly and just to give it a little test drive I first blew on it from about a foot away and it was rather difficult to make it go out. I took another one and after it was lit I ran it under the faucet to see how it handles dousing and it went out for a second and then re-lit on itself. I was able to do this many times until it burned out. I am very happy with the quality of the matches. Also, if you are considering these for outdoors use such as an emergency kit of simply for outdoor recreation, I would recommend having some type of tinder packed away with you. A good homemade tinder is soaking cotton balls in petroleum jelly. If you would like a ready available commercial tinder I would recommend Light My Fire TinderSticks, these sticks are excellent tinder and light even when wet. These matches are a must for any outdoors recreation enthusiast and are particularly well priced for the quality that you are receiving.
