A tinder tube is a small waterproof container that holds your prepared tinder. Prepared tinder can be store bought or you can make it yourself. The important thing is that you have a way to make fire easily.
Also referred to as a match safe or match box, the tinder tube is your way of keeping your tinder dry and in a specific spot in your survival kit. One of the most critical tasks you may face during an emergency is the ability to create a fire.
