It's always a good idea to have backup methods of starting a fire. These waterproof and windproof matches will light when wet and can really be a life saver in adverse conditions.
Extra long match-head provides a stronger and longer lasting flame. These NATO approved Survival Matches come in a small, watertight, plastic bottle that has a match strike surface on one end.
Strong flame stands up to the wind and rain. Once it's lit, it's not going out. Once ignited, these windproof survival storm matches are more like small flares than matches and burn intensely for approximately 10-12 seconds. They cannot be blown out.
A Strong Source of Emergency Fire Starting
- Extra large windproof and waterproof head.
- Striker surface on container top.
- Safety matches - can't light accidentally.
These Storm Matches come 25 to a container. If you need a match on a dark and stormy night, the NATO Survival Matches are the only ones to have and should be a part of every survival kit.
If it's freezing cold out and you're shivering and shaking, you will not want to have to shave a magnesium stick. Not only will it be difficult to keep the shavings in one spot and get enough to be effective, but because it's so cold and you're shaking you'd want an easier and quicker way. These waterproof and windproof matches are the answer.
Gather your tinder, kindling, and fuel and get ready to get warm. With proper tinder and enough kindling and fuel, one match is all you'll need to get a toasty fire started and going. Be sure to gather enough kindling up front so you don't have to start over. One match, one light, one fire. Your family will appreciate your resourcefulness almost as much as they appreciate the warmth.
Keep some with your emergency gear, tackle box, vehicle survival kit, and bug out bag.
