Neat little box of matches which will light in pretty rough conditions. They stay alight long enough to light even the most recalcitrant stove or fire. Tucked away in my "Just in case" this pack could make all the difference. I may never use them in earnest - but at this price foolish not to have them.

I tested these in the garden while it was wet and windy and they worked well. The tubs are not THE best quality with only a pop on/off lid so they are not water proof, but a bit of duct tape solves this. For the price these are excellent quality, but buy a couple of tubs so you can practice with one before you need them!

These matches really let me down the one time I needed them. The striking paper is glued to the outside of the container so on the day my lighter got too wet to use the atmosphere was so wet the striking paper was damp and just got chewed up by the matches. Furthermore the wood is too thin so the matchsticks broke while striking. I have since tried to light these in a drier environment and did get one to light by holding it by the red tip (the match doesn't burn explosively like smaller matches so I had time to move my fingers further down when it caught. The burn time is short but it would be long enough to light a stove. If you do buy these (or if you own some but haven't used them yet) then make sure you peel off the striking paper and store it inside the pot.

This doesn't work like traditional matches, you don't get a neat little flame, instead the inflammable coating will burn in an energetic quick flame that can defy strong winds.

So don't count on this matches to illuminate you or to light a cigarette, they burn fast and with a lot of heat, this is intended to be used to lit something else like a camp fire or a candle, not to wander in the dark like in a horror movie.

These are almost as good as the military issue ones but only a third of the price
Simple as that!

There is always the danger in an emergency of lack of heat or being able to start a camp fire. The matche are large enough to give a good flame and being waterproof will certainly add to ones confidence in a long hike/travell.

Not wind proof the 'reaction' continues without a flame when the head is gone the match goes out, they will not strike when wet but will dry out the striker is on the our side which is also useless when wet, they are the safety type so will not strike on any rough surface, the container is also not water proof and the lid could come off in your rucksack. Having said all that they are cheap so put them in a proper container with the striker inside safe and dry.
