Fantastic flame

You're probably familiar with matches, but your expectations likely aren't very high. They get the job done in perfect conditions, but if they get wet or it's windy, that fire's not going to get lit… unless, of course, you're carrying Stormproof Matches.

These survival essentials are easy to light in the windiest of conditions and will reignite even if fully submerged in water. If you're ever in a position that you find yourself needing Stormproof Matches, you'll be grateful they’re in your pack.

Waterproof and windproof, for when you really need a match!

Fabulous fifteen

Each Stormproof Match's weather-resistant flame lasts for up to fifteen seconds to get your kindling cracking or lantern lit with time to spare. Even if you drop your match in a puddle, you can just pick it up and get back to making a fire without a fuss!

Burns up to 15 seconds!

A just-in-case case

Stormproof Matches includes 25 windproof, waterproof matches; 3 replaceable strikers; and a waterproof case with a screw-off top and rubber gasket. The tough, ruggedized set does everything it can to keep you prepared to keep a fire in a tough situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Since they're waterproof, can you light a fire under water?

Answer: Even though the match will smolder, kindling won't burn underwater, so starting a fire isn't going to happen. You can submerge the lit match, bring it above the surface, and then light something with the still-burning match though!

Question: What if you want to put them out?

Answer: These matches are specifically designed to not go out, but after about 15 seconds the fuel will burn and they will self-extinguish.
