UCO's Stormproof Matches are an essential piece of any survival kit. These life-saving matches will light in any weather giving you up to 15 seconds of flame per match. With 25 matches in a box it's not much of a burden to carry such an effective survival tool. Fire is important if you get stuck in the wilderness, for signaling, cooking and for basic heat.
Unlike other 'waterproof' or 'windproof' matches, the UCO Stormproof Matches are easy to light, and will stay lit for up to 15 seconds, even after being submerged in water! Being able to reliably make a fire is vital for cooking, generating warmth, and in survival situations, making signal fires.
The UCO Stormproof Matches are perfect for camping, emergency kits, and should be part of every 10 Essentials check list. Each single box contains 25 matches and spare strikers.
Make sure you really want to light these matches because you'll struggle to put them out! If you haven't watched the video clip please do. Because these matches burn up to 15 seconds this also gives you a bit longer to get your tinder to light, so if you are trying to make a fire in difficult conditions these matches will give you the edge.
