MSR Strike Igniter

by MSR


This ultralight, weatherproof striker from MSR is the perfect solution for lighting canister and white gas stoves. More reliable than a lighter – moisture and pressure don’t affect performance, meaning you can rely on it to get a stove or fire going in less than ideal circumstances. Like many MSR Stove accessories, the MSR Strike Igniter has a built-in bottle opener.

- Produces 5,500°F sparks that light stoves quickly
- Lasts for 3,000 to 12,000 strikes – far more than average lighters

In 1969, Seattle engineer and lifelong mountaineer Larry Penberthy formed Mountain Safety Research as a one-man crusade dedicated to improving the safety of climbing equipment. The fuel behind Larry's passionate fire was a simple belief that still drives their team today: The idea that better, safer, more reliable equipment is the key to unlocking greater adventures.
