UCO Stormproof Match Kit

Item #: 80006

Our Price: $6.99

Yellow


The UCO Stormproof Match Kit is a waterproof container that includes 25 matches and 3 strikers. The container features an integrated striker on the outside to provide an easy location for lighting matches and can hold up to 40 matches. The ribbed container is easy to grip with cold hands. Unlike other "waterproof" or "windproof" matches, UCO Stormproof Matches are easy to light, and will stay lit for up to 15 seconds, even after being submerged in water! Being able to reliably make a fire is vital for cooking, generating warmth, and in survival situations, making signal fires. UCO Stormproof Matches are perfect for camping, emergency kits, and should be part of every 10 Essentials check list.
  • Dimensions: 1 1/4" x 3" (3.2 cm x 7.6 cm)
  • Weight (Kit): 1.7 oz., 48g.
  • Waterproof plastic container.
  • Backpacking
  • Includes 25 windproof and waterproof matches and 3 strikers.
  • External striker for easy lighting and 25 windproof and waterproof matches
  • Matches are easy to light and will relight after being submerged in water!
  • Up to 15 second burn time.
  • Extended length of match allows for added safety to keep from burning fingertips.
  • Lights campfires, stoves, gas-barbecues, etc.
  • For outdoor use only. Carefully monitor lit matches until completely burned. For use by adults only. Store extra strikers in protective sleeves after use to keep dry. Store matches separately from strikers to prevent accidental ignition.

          Comments about UCO Stormproof Match Kit:

          This is a good item to have. One feature that I do not agree with is that the striker is on the outside of the container. Although your matches will be dry, the striker may not be serviceable if it gets wet. I would keep the spare strikers inside the container. I would have thought the striker would be on the underside of the lid. That would make more sense.

            Has never failed to light in any wind or precipitation so long as you keep the strikers relatively dry. These are a good value for the price.
            The only drawback compared to more expensive brands is the duration of the burn is about half what I am used to. That should not be a problem so long as your tinder is dry. I could foresee a problem in truly adverse conditions with damp/wet tinder.

                Bought these for backcountry camping/hunting. Easy to light, small package that is waterproof. Once lit, these matches burn like a sparkler you would lite over the 4th of July-very hot and good burn time. Great Product and I have purchsed two more for not only camping but at home emergency supply kits.

                  These burn for a very long time and produce a large flame. Great fire starters, everyone should buy these for safety reasons.

                          These matches light well and remain lit. The case is very well constructed, waterproof and strong. For the price, there were ample matches included. The additional flint is an unexpected bonus.
