- Great for Emergencies
Average weatherproof matches
The first one I used broke. The second one worked but I wouldn't have my 8 year old (who's been a cub scout since age 5 and camping since birth) to start a fire with it because you do have to put your fingers close to the flammable portion to use it. I might let my 11 year old use them, but there are better fire starting products out there, to be honest. They'll go in emergency kits.

Hi, Michelle! Thank you for your review! I've forwarded this to our product development team, and we'll see what we can do about making the matches longer. These are strictly meant for emergency use, so your emergency kit is the perfect place for them! As for alternative fire-starting methods, one of our favorites is our Tough Tesla Lighters, linked here: https://www.survivalfrog.com/collections/n-fire-starters/products/waterproof-tough-tesla-lighter
