Zippo has been established for a long time as a reliable go-to for the outdoorsy type. As a Seattle native and camping enthusiast, I know first hand how difficult it can be to stay dry during a weekend in a tent. The designers at Zippo have produced an Emergency Fire Starter Kit that is reliable and efficient.
The lighter is waterproof and contains four tinder sticks which can be twisted out, set under your kindling, and get a blazing fire going every time. The lid closes securely, keeping the contents dry and ready to use at a moments notice. The small size makes it useful for truck-campers and back packers. The tinders are waxed cotton wool and burn well once lit.
For best results, pull them apart a little bit before lighting. you can buy replacement sticks from Zippo too—just refill the kit when you run out, or double bag them in your backpack to make sure they stay dry. All in all, a great piece to throw into your bag and forget about until you need it!
