In a survival situation one of the first priorities of survival is the ability to keep yourself warm. Fire as we all know provides just that and a whole lot more. One easy way to carry fire making capability around with you is to carry a small butane lighter in your pocket, purse, bag or on your keychain.
True Utility has produced a convenient EDC-friendly firestarter called the FireStash which is a small waterproof key ring canister housing a mini butane lighter. Once the fluid in the FireStash runs out, you don’t have to worry about throwing it away. It can be conveniently refilled with standard lighter fluid available from most supermarkets and newsagents.
The exterior is made from dark chrome plated zinc alloy. There is also a waterproof neoprene O ring around where the cap screws on to the canister to keep the lighter dry – something that is very important especially with fire making implements. A wet lighter is of no use especially when you need it most.
