  1. Have you ever overfilled a Zippo? Put an overfilled Zippo in your Pants Pocket, and you will have a Naptha Rash that takes DAYS to heal! A typical BIC lighter is, in itself “waterproof”*. I’ve gone in the water with a BIC in my pocket. It only takes a minute or so to blow the water out of the flint well, and spark wheel. I buy BICs in 5 Packs, & distribute them throughout my gear bags. My Zippos are for dry situations. Thanks for reviewing the “Sorta Cool” Lighter. I do carry a Ferro Rod, as well as a “Doans” Magnesium bar.
    * By waterproof, I mean that there is nothing that will absorb water.

  2. As funny as this may sound,,, the “primitive river water test” is actually a tougher test for it to pass than the “hottub test”. When you drop a sealed item in hot water , the contents (air in particular) heat up , expand and pressurize the item and in the event of a very small leak, keeps the water out. River water is cold and the air in the lighter will contract , reducing the internal pressure and in the event of a small leak, it will suck water in.

  3. The idea behind it, the craftsmanship that went into it and the simple rugged function of performing it’s designed task are what makes it great. It’s an advanced version of a zippo.

  4. They have all of the advantages of a wick type lighter — Zippo, peanut, etc… — without the disadvantages. Unlike butane lighters, Bic for instance, they don’t care how cold it is outside; they don’t care what the current elevation is and they’ll run on practically any flammable liquid. Bic lighters don’t work well in cold weather, don’t work well at high elevations, and once they’re out, they’re out, unless you’ve got a can of butane handy anyway. With a wick type lighter you can run it on anything from vodka to gasoline to paint thinner if that’s all you’ve got. (Not recommending it, just saying it works.)

    With that type of lighter the multi-fuel capability is really the biggest advantage in a disaster/survival situation, along with being waterproof and practically indestructible of course. I tend to keep one around for that reason even though I mostly just use a disposable. I am a big fan of the Exotac ‘fireSLEEVE’ (that’s how they spell it) though!
