Sometimes you just want the simple and ole' reliable. The Survival Essentials Stormproof Matches come with a conveniently carrying case that comes with a couple extra strikers just in case you don't have the best surface.

They will stay lit up to about 13-15 seconds and will even ignite after being submerged in water. Know that you will always have a source of fire with these storm proof matches and throw them in your pack for those "just in case" scenarios!
