Reviews

Won't Go Out in the Wind!

These beauties are best described as a mix of a regular match, a birthday candle that you can't blow out, and a 4th of July sparkler. If you're going to to light a fire in a high-wind situation, rainy weather, cold weather, or anything but a sunny, calm day, you'll thank yourself over and over for having these Storm Matches on hand.

Good for emergencies

Good piece of gear! I put three of them in a reusable tea ball through the dishwasher and after a quick wipe on my shirt all three of them lit flawlessly! The only reason I'm giving these a 4 out of 5 stars is that they don't seem to burn as hot as a regular match and can take longer to start a fire but they can be a lifesaver in an emergency.

MATCHES

I use these to light my cigars, they would also start a fire no trouble, as hot as spark as magnesium off a striker, however it lasts a few seconds longer.

Additional Info
A good comparison of these Windproof and Waterproof matches is a sparkler. It doesn't produce a large flame, but due to the phosphorous coating, the matches stay lit for longer periods than standard matches.
