Numyth Tohil v2 Watertight Fluid Lighter
- Product Review (submitted on May 14, 2014):
I purchased this lighter to replace the Zippo I have carried for years as part of my EDC. Zippo's are great lighters, but as everyone who has carried one knows, you have to refill them every couple weeks due to the lighter fluid evaporating. There are ways to prevent this like the bicycle tire wrap, but I'd rather not do that. So I purchased this lighter as a replacement.
After waiting for some time for these to be back in stock, I finally was able to order one. There were some quality control issues with the first one, the internal cylinder was loose and the pin that held the wheel in place was loose as well. After contacting Going Gear, they promptly sent out a replacement and a shipping label to send the original one back. The second one has performed flawlessly. Awesome customer service from these guys, very professional.
The lighter comes with two replacement O-Rings. This lighter is absolutely water tight (yes I have tested it), lights very easily usually on the first strike, and is very well machined so it is sturdy and compact. The flame is not as high as a Zippo lighter, and it is not as windproof, but it was not designed to be a replica, there are pros and cons to each one. That having been said, this is the one you want in your backpack for camping and hiking or in your bug out bag if the SHTF. Excellent design Going Gear! I look forward to carrying and field testing more of your equipment in time and I absolutely recommend this lighter.
