I keep these is my watertight case I bought. These are good to have around the house as well as in your camping gear. You never know when you might lose a lighter, or need some matches. They work great.

These macthes will do but by no means would I trust my life with them. First off the box is made out of thin balsa-ish wood wich can break pretty easily. Some macthes strike effortlessly and others take 5- strikes to light. They are indeed waterproof but the striker must be decently dry to work. Like I said these are ok but I would get another brand(such as UCO.) If you are making a Survival kit I strongly recommend you carry at least 3 different fire starting tools and some kind of artificial tinder (The charcoal starter packs from home improvement stores are great)

When you are in the remote areas and the weather changes, temperatures drop, good luck with your fire starter kits, the things that look like car keys and dog tags that throw sparks? When Archaeologists discover you, they will think you lived during an ice age, but truth of the matter is, it's because your fire would not start. Those spark throwing sticks might look cool on TV but they do not work in real life, unless you got tinder that is soaked in gas. These water proof matches are the way to go.

All of their matches are “safety matches” which means they will not light if accidentally struck against any rough surface; they will only ignite when struck against the striker strip on the box. So, it is not the striker that is “special” it is the chemical make-up of the match-head which only allows ignition when struck against the striker provided.
