    I had some more time to mess around with the fire strip roll this weekend and used it for 4 different fires. I wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it but have really come to like it. What I like is how it stays neatly packed in the roll until you tear off exactly the amount you need then throw it back into your pack. It’s about the size of a hockey puck.

    Another cool thing is that it’s very thin so you can cut a couple strips for an altoids kit and it doesn’t really take up any space.

    Burn time isn’t as good as some of the other tinders but you have to remember that the mass of this thing isn’t very much so pound for pound it does what you’d expect. You can light it with a firesteel if you rough up the edges but it’s easier to light with a flame. Here it is with some really lousy wood that I picked up off of the damp ground and surprisingly it worked well. I only use about 2-3 inches for one fire.

    Give it a try if you like cool stuff. Available at

    I also like the signal sack to keep me out of the mud when I make fires. Multicam side down to enhance the natural camo!

    Seriously, though, this stuff looks pretty neat. Have you had a chance to try it out wet?

    Yes it will still burn after being completely submerged
