Fire Starting Device Test Video Series

Discussion in 'Functional Gear & Equipment' started by 2BrothersAdventures, Jan 1, 2011.

  1. We are doing a series on fire starting devices to test them and see how they hold up to water and wind. We are going to do our best to get and test as many as we can find. We created a standardized checklist we are going to follow and have found some interesting results. So far we have tested and posted videos on:

    - Book matches
    - Strike anywhere matches
    - Coghlan's waterproof matches
    - Stansport waterproof/windproof matches
    - Coleman waterproof matches
    - REI stormproof matches
    - UCO stormproof matches
    - Ultimate Survival Technologies Blastmatch
    - Ultimate Survival Technologies Sparkie
    - Spark Lite
    - Coglan's Ferro Rod
    - Light My Fire Scout Ferro Rod
    - Coglan's Flint match
    - Zippo
    - True Utility FireStash

    The overview video of the test is below and all the videos start with (FSDT) for "Fire Starting Device Test" so you can search YouTube for FSDT and find all the videos.

    If you know of any others we haven't tested let us know and we will try and get them. We have more matches and other fire starting devices on order and will continue the series as we receive them.
