        They are easy to light, make a huge flame. The down side is they burn down quickly, and generate very little heat it ignite damp tinder. The best fire starter out there will always be a Bic lighter and toilet paper.

          I consider these for emergency use, when the weather
          is nasty. They do burn fiercely upon testing.
          The most important thing is to have your tinder/kindling material for a fire at hand in advance lighting these, so you don't waste them.
          I put them in a little zip lock bag just in case,
          with some dryer lint or other tinder material.

              I used to be a strike anywhere fan. I had seen these before, but I was not interested. I picked up the set with the plastic water-tight case at a local sporting goods store recently and I was amazed!

              These are almost like little fireworks! They burn aggressively and for a long time. DO NOT BURN THEM INSIDE. They will set of your smoke detector(s). (Voice of experience here.)

              I ordered these as a refill for when I use up the ones in the plastic tube. I recommend these for anyone's kit. I keep some in my pack, tackle box, and my PSK.

                  Bought for me by my parents..

                  The first time i lit one of these things the match stick broke but the second time i used them i blew on it a little bit i don't know how well they'd do in like 80+ mph winds but still they're great also i stuck one in water and when i pulled it out the flame was gone but after like 2 seconds it burst into flame again..

                      I have literally lit one of these matches and completely submerged it in water for 5 seconds. When I pulled it out, it was still burning.

                      I tested them wet, they worked fine. Wish they came in a waterproof resealable container. I checked hard to repack under CONS for this reason.
                      A little pricey for not coming in a resealable waterporrf container.
