Exotac FireSleeve - Waterproof your lighter
The Exotac Firesleeve is a great idea. Yes, I know, we all create fire using an ancient aboriginal method but, lets be honest, that simply isn't true and sometimes a good old fashioned lighter is simply the best method. The firesleeve is ideal for an over the counter BIC Maxi style of lighter and it not only makes it waterproof it floats as well.
At Exotac, they love fire. It’s the most critical component in a survival situation, yet the basic options out there haven’t evolved much. They’re here to change that. Your basic lighter is still the easiest-to-use fire source, but there are some serious limitations. If it gets wet, forget about using it until hours later when the flint has dried out. Want to secure it to your pack so you’re sure it won’t get lost? Too bad. Need to keep the gas button depressed for awhile to light your fire? Hope you like a seriously hot thumb. These might sound like only minor annoyances, but if you’re ever in a survival situation and fire becomes your number 1 priority, it’s no longer a minor problem to find that your lighter is missing or unusable.
They've designed the fireSLEEVE to fit the Bic Classic Lighter like a glove and fix all of those problems. They relentlessly tweaked the design and sorted through dozens of materials until they found the perfect combination of high end polymers to give you the feel and performance you need. Throughout the design process they also field tested to ensure that the fireSLEEVE will perform under harsh conditions so you can be sure that it will work flawlessly when you really need it.

Great piece of kit to make life just that bit easier.
Spot on. Just what I needed for my canoe ditch kit.
Practical easy to use. Does what it says on the tin.
