The UCO Stormproof Match Kit is a waterproof container that includes 25 matches and 3 strikers. The UCO Stormproof Match Kit features an integrated striker on the outside of the container to provide an easy location for lighting matches and can hold up to 40 matches. The ribbed container is easy to grip with cold hands. Unlike other waterproof or windproof matches, UCO Stormproof Matches are easy to light, and will stay lit for up to 15 seconds, even after being submerged in water! Being able to reliably make a fire is vital for cooking, generating warmth, and in survival situations, making signal fires. UCO Stormproof Matches are perfect for camping, emergency kits, and should be part of every 10 Essentials check list.

Works great!! Love it. Worth to have it in case of storm while backpacking in the mountain. Especially, I bought a yellow color kit, got lost at a campsite at night, but found it early int the morning. The yellowish color was easy to see on the ground.
ACK was great in getting me this product quickly and they are not responsible of the quality of the product. That being said, these matches are greatly overrated. They burn, on average, 5 seconds. They really don't burn underwater (not that I would start a fire that way). The manufacturer shouldn't make absurd claims like how long they burn or "look they even burn underwater!!!" Yeah, they'll light and start dry kindling but so will cheaper matches. I will stick to Blastmatch or a box of light-anywhere matches in a waterproof container. These were a major disappointment.
I always carry these matches backpacking and canoeing.They are great for lighting my esbit stoves fuel cubes.
product arrived quickly,quite please with this company
