One match will do the job!
January 16, 2019
I was designing my "Bug out Bag" and a couple lite weight "Get Home" bags for my vehicles. Looking forever for the best way to start a fire in poor conditions. I carry a Bic lighter with duck tape on it, a ferro rod, a striker, and waterproof matches (the high burn type) I also use cotton balls with vaseline. With all that at my disposal, I still had trouble getting a fire to light if the wood is damp or covered in snow.
Now for the high high price of $0.40 a fire (yes they are a little pricey $20 for 50 pc's), you can start a fire anywhere. These things light real fast and easy with one match. I haven't tried it with my ferro rod, due to the fact I was cold and just wanted a fire right away on my last camping trip. I just hit it with my Bic real quick and I had fire, I didn't have to use any chemicals, didn't have to use any cotton balls, just one flick of the Bic....done.
I didn't actually time it, but I used one piece of the "STICK STACKS" with some fairly dry, small pieces of wood as my fire started and then a couple of larger pieces that were a little damp. The "STICK STACKS" stayed lit and hot enough for about 5 minutes to get the small wood starting to burn. I could see it still had a fire for longer than that, but I was happy by then to have a fire going on that cold night of camping.
It says it is "ALL NATURAL - Wood wool and Paraffin wax fire starters that are eco-friendly natural and free from harmful chemicals" I think I believe it. They had no smell and no chemical feel. I will now carry at least 5 sticks in all my backpacks and emergency kits from now on.
No, I have not been compensated, paid or gifted for this review. I just believe I found a great product. If you are looking for a way to start a BBQ, a fire pit or just want to make it easier on yourself when you start a wood burning stove, throw away all that paper, throw in one or two of these sticks, pull out 1 match and your done.
