    Comments about Coghlan's Waterproof Matches:

    Since they never got wet I don't know if these matches are water proof. I can say however that about a third of the matches in each box are completely fireproof, refusing to light even though completely dry.

    Comments about Coghlan's Waterproof Matches:

    The matches are great. They work well for the first 10 or so matches that are struck, but then the striker becomes coated in match head dust and it becomes extremely difficult, even futile, to attempt to loght the rest of the matches with that box. Other than the striker, these matches work well in wet or dry conditions.

    They are not perfect, but put them in a water tight box or zip lock bag for added protection, just make sure you keep the striker on the box.

        Product is OK, but I would NOT bet my life on them. TGhey do work, but not as well as led to believe by advertising, as test an item like this for yourself prior to taking into back country or putting in your just in case bag. I carried on my A.T. thru in a zip loc, worked but I was able to keep them dry, tested prior to hike did not lite easily wet soaked, for me.

          These matches really work and don't add much weight to your pack. They are really great matches and you get a lot for just [$].
