Lifesystems Windproof Storm Matches:
This little piece of kit can be a survival essential, simple but reliably effective.
Coming encased in a tough, waterproof and heatproof Lexan polycarbonate container, this pack of 20 matches will light (using the integrated striker) in heavy winds and rain.

Great Case, matches need development, 02 November 2014
By Little John (Peak District)
The container is brilliant - feels and IS watertight, with a striker on the inside above the thread AND on the base outside. Was hoping for a long-burning match to light tinder/kindling/solid fuel tabs etc in harsh/damp conditions...
They didn't all light very easily in my pack (I've been a smoker 10 years so my technique isn't the issue - I put my finger on the tip when I strike matches) and the ones that did, burnt down too quick to carefully place when lighting a wood fire. At 20p'ish a match and a capacity of 20 this is unhelpful. Replacing them with non-safety matches @ 2p per match and will fit around 30-40. Still, would pay a few quid for the container so not all bad.
Terrifying!, 21 July 2014
These matches are terrifying! They're more like mini sparklers. Also, after blowing them out they just relight, if the flame was on the pink section before extinguishing.
The little case however is great; water-tight and holds a lot of matches. I ended up tipping out all the original matches and replacing them with normal supermarket ones.

Found these matches failed to light Yellowstone solid fuel tablets on a folding stove, burnt too quickly to set the fuel tablets alight. Used a lighter so don't feel matches are fit for this purpose.

These matches are really good and are essential. My only bad point is that the matches are not waterproof, so just dip them in some wax before you go anywhere with them. Big bonus is that you can buy more matches and put them in the tub :)
