Shield your precious pile of tinder from the wind and rain with one hand and get the fire started with the Ultimate Survival Technologies BlastMatch in the other. This flint based fire starter generates three times the heat of an ordinary match and can be operated with one hand. The sparks can be directionally targeted for maximum efficiency, and it even works in the rain and other adverse weather conditions. The bar lasts for up to 4,000 strikes and can be rotated to ensure even wear. It also has a safety button to prevent accidental sparks from going off in your pack.
