WetFire™ Tinder is the perfect accompaniment to any fire starter, and can help you get a blaze going even in a downpour. In fact, the cubes actually burn longer when wet!
WetFire™ starting tinder was born from the need for a universal lighting material that was safe, odorless, easy-to-carry, and unaffected by wind or water. Elite military troops can find themselves anywhere, in any kind of weather. They require something that will light a fire in a rainstorm if needed, yet extinguish instantly to avoid detection, leaving no residue, no odor, no smoke.
Ultimate Survival WetFire™ Tinder is the best fire-starting tinder material available anywhere in the world. It is individually packaged in a lightweight solid cube form that can't leak or foul up your other gear. It leaves none of the residue of inferior petroleum-based products and is non-toxic. The cubes burn without smoke and can be started even in high winds and nasty weather. In fact, the tinder burns while floating in water, and burns longer when wet.
WetFire™ Tinder burns at over 1300 degrees yet cools almost instantly when snuffed out. A small pile of shavings is enough to start a campfire, warm your hands, or pre-heat a backpacking stove. Always have some of these cubes available when you go outside.
While WetFire™ was developed for military personnel, anyone who needs to start a fire can benefit from this amazing fire starting tinder. For decades, mountain climbers have struggled with gooey fire starting gels to light their stoves at high altitude. Not only messy, these gels are hard to use. At high altitude you have enough to worry about without wasting energy trying to light an uncooperative stove. With WetFire™ Tinder, this problem is solved. Just sprinkle a small amount of tinder shavings around the backpacker stove, and it lights instantly. No goo, no mess, no hassle.
Even if you're not in the military, and don't plan to climb Everest, WetFire™ Tinder will help you start any fire. Use it to light your backyard barbecue, or to start a fire in your living room fireplace. Make yourself popular when only you can start the late night beach bonfire.
If entire WetFire™ cube is not used after opening, it can be stored for up to three months. For best results, package partially used cube in a sealed plastic bag or container.
