The quest for fire just got easier.
If cavemen would've had the Ultimate Survival Technologies Ultimate Fire Starter Kit 1.0 we would probably be driving around in rocket cars right now. The kit allows you to build a fire anytime, anywhere with a watertight case that will hold five packages of Wetfire tinder and a highly dependable flint-based fire starter.

Great Starter Kit
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I go camping at least once a month during the warm season of the year and I have found this super helpful to just keep in my pack year round. Last June it came really in handy because I forgot to bring matches and it only took us about 20 minutes with the flint & steel to get a fire going and roaring. My only disappointment is that the pack doesn't come with some sort of water proof matches, which could be really handy in emergency situations.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
There's not a lot to say here. The product works very well, just take a few seconds to read the instructions. As simple as it is, there is one step I missed. You have to create shavings from the little included fire starting blocks. Once you've got that down all it takes is a tiny spark and these things burn like crazy.
Really simple to use, effective, and cheap. If you don't want to carry matches, this is a great alternative, and probably a lot more effective if there are winds you have to deal with.
