Does what it's supposed to
Not the best. I bought them due to the price, and you get what you pay for. Two of them tighten really well, but the third doesn't tighten hardly at all and then it pops loose. I am also disappointed at how little they hold, might be okay for medicine or something small. I went out to Wal Mart and bought a UCO Match container with 25 waterproof matches and a strike pad on the side.
This was a good purchase. They are small, and lightweight. Waterproof they are. They feature a spark maker, and that is a handy tool. I'm glad I bought them, and plan to put them in my backpack for my next hike.
Once you get through the outside coating, this sparks just fine, used my SCHF9, the Hibben Alaskan and my Leatherman Wingman. All gave a nice shower of spark. Used the Wingman, Dryer lint with Petroleum Jelly and with the second strike there was fire. To my shame, truth be told It was my first time starting a fire with a striker. Being a smoker I always have a way to get my nicotine. This could not have been more simple. I held this underwater for 3 minutes and no leaking. The pouch on the Schrade holds 2 of these. one is going to be filled with lint and jelly and I haven't decided what the other holds yet but I do know they are both going to be there!
These are a handy way to store your camping and survival matches. They are waterproof, and, are very easy to use. A great value.
I love these things. A little short for matches, but I just trim them a little. Holds out the river water if it my EDC bag or Hiking pack takes a dump. Economical too.
At least one of these full of matches belongs in every bugout bag. They have a neoprene washer to keep everything dry inside. They're especially handy for keeping pills high and dry on camping trips and emergencies. I have a half-dozen and will probably get more.
I got these because of the mirror in the lid. The ones I got are water resistant at least and have not yet been checked for water proof. My son really liked it due to the M48 logo and liberated two from me. I think the mirror would be a good back up and the flint on the bottom will shoot a hot enough spark if it goes into a vasoline cotton ball. I wouldn't use either as a primary, but feel they would be better than nothing. I will probably include a pack when ever I need to round out an order. Very useful.
First, great little kit builder for bug out fire, meds, fishing etc. Second, the striker on the bottom is not for matches, scrape a knife or screwdriver blade down it and you should produce a lovely shower of sparks. one of the three filled with dry soft tinder and boom fire!! I will be getting a few more soon.
As a match box, they're good, no issue with the waterproof gasket on mine. The magnesium rod will produce tiny sparks but it's too small (size of pencil lead) and too short (just over half inch) to create a usable spark. The signal mirror is also small so signaling distance will be short. I don't think the "bells and whistles" add value to the inexpensive yet quality match box!
