@IA Woodsman has done a few reviews on these matches in the past, but I thought I'd grab my camera, run into the backyard, and make a video to show you why these matches work great, even in bad weather. All day yesterday, we had sustained winds of 25-30mph all day long, with gusts up to 45mph. Coupled with the cold temps, we were in a weather advisory, and it was unpleasant to be outside. I struck the match without cupping or shielding it from the wind in any way, and watched it burn. For a moment at first, I wasn't sure if it would take off, but it did. It burned bright and hot for roughly 15 seconds, which should be plenty of time to get your tinder lit. Here's the link to the video, which is roughly 30 seconds long. I don't really like where Youtube is going, so I uploaded my video to Bitchute, but I am unable to embed the video here, which is disappointing. https://www.bitchute.com/video/WtvN37DwwmcG/ @Woods Walker did an excellent review of the Coleman waterproof matches here: https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/thre...tches-coleman-review-walmart-survival.208244/ I like the coleman waterproof matches and they work well, but they are certainly not windproof. Being windproof is where the UCO stormproof matches really shine. While I wouldn't use the UCO matches on an every day basis (I would use regular matches or the Coleman matches), I do keep them in my survival kit for when I need a fire right away. If you want to purchase these matches, you can find them Andy's 5COL store, and I think I've seen them in the Bushcraft Outfitter's store from time to time, though I don't see them there now.
