You got chased by a bear, nearly drowned in a river, all your gear is drenched, and now you need a warm fire. Or maybe you’re just a drunken fool in search of a cool bar trick.
No worries, the REI Stormproof Matches will work just fine. That’s because these survival matches are both windproof and waterproof. It doesn’t matter if you’re in 50 mph winds, or in pouring rain, these will light with ease. In fact, once lit, they don’t go out until the chemical burns completely – which by the way, takes about 10 seconds.
Go swimming with them if you’d like (really). Just don’t be the idiot who tries to blow these things out. Windproof… yeah.
