Review :

My review for these are essentially the same as with the other stormproof sweetfire fire starters with the exception that this is much, much bigger.  With the longer burn time comes expanded capabilities in nastier, wetter weather.  This is not a fire starter for your average fire but those which involve a great deal of wet material.. Without a doubt there are situations which call for a fire starter like that but for most people it is less likely.

Good addition to any kit

Not waterproof.

Not windproof.

Great for perfect weather conditions.

Car camping


Situations where you can do a better job at keeping them dry

  1. Great review, Luke. I agree that these may have a place in our packs mostly for q "quick fire" or as an emergency item. I believe I've seen these either at Cabela's or one of the gun shops. Personally, like you, a Bic will suffice for most fire starting purposes. Placing a new package of them in a Ziploc bag for those "just in case" moments is not a bad idea at all. BTW that's a great hair cut you have there. Have a great day and I look forward to watching one of your storm overnighters...mine was a doozy!
