From UCO Gear, improve your odds against the weather with the Stormproof Match Case. Inside each waterproof case is 25 matches and 3 strikers to help you get a fire going even in the worst conditions.
These Stormproof Matches are windproof, waterproof and light up quickly and consistently even in driving rain, high winds and falling snow — they’ll even relight after being submerged in water. The extended length of each match allows for added safety and burn time to keep from burning fingertips. The case has room to hold up to 40 matches.
- Burn Time (up to): 15 seconds
- Length: 2.75" (7 cm)
- Weight (Kit): 1.7 oz. (48 g)
- For lighting a match, it is ideal if the striker is a firm surface which can usually be achieved by just closing the box.
- If striker and box become wet, the striker will still work, but needs to dry first so that the surface is once again firm. Use a spare striker until then.
- If matches become wet, just wipe dry before use.
