The UCO Stormproof matches are hands down the best matches on the market. If you are familiar with the REI Stormproof Matches, these are exactly the same, but under a different brand name.
Unlike other waterproof or windproof matches, the UCO Stormproof matches are easy to light, and will stay lit for up to 15 seconds, even after being submersed in water! Being able to reliably make a fire is vital for cooking, generating warmth, and in survival situations, making signal fires. The UCO Stormproof Matches are perfect for camping and emergency kits. The UCO Stormproof matches should be part of every 10 Essentials check list.

- Best matches evah
If you have to carry matches - which I do not recommend as a single source of fire-making materials - these are the ones to carry. They are absolutely incredible. Super-tough. I can literally submerge them entirely under water and they will still burn. If you cannot start a fire with these, I'm not sure what else you'd want to carry... propane torch maybe?
In addition to burning hot and easy - these matches are also quite a bit more substantial in size than your average match. Perfect for bug out bags, survival kits, or to carry in your pack or glove box.

- Highly recommended
These matches keep burning after being fully soaked in water. I’ve had not satisfying results with other brands but these ones works great. I will defiantly order more of these in the future. Well packed and supplied with extra ‘striking surfaces’ which are sealed in nylon.
