I put together a fire starting kit that takes up very little room and can be put in the glove box of a Car , Airplane , Motorcycle or any vehicle , Backpack , Tackle box ,and Camping gear ...ANYWHERE. Weather will not effect it and it will or should last for just about forever with proper storage. The real benefit is that it weighs only a few ounces when together. My completed kit weighs 2.3 ounces. Take one of the Pop Bottle Blanks that look like a oversized test tube. ( (1 inch x 5.75 inch) 50mL POLYCARBONATE TEST TUBES WITH SCREW CAPS ) You can get them from Amazon and there is a lot of different uses for them. Now pick up one of the little exotac nano strikers ( Diameter .43 , length 3.65 inches with a 1/4 inch thick rod ). Or a generic copy about the same size. It needs to be narrow enough to fit inside the tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tzJhDPPkxM Take the pop bottle blank put some cotton balls in it and then slide the little striker down along the side of the cotton balls so they are together in the tube , cap it off and you have an emergency fire starter. It is weather proof when that cap is screwed on the top of the tube. The sparks from it will ignite the cotton ball and even dryer lint from cotton clothing.
