Positives robust storage compartment whistle lanyard…

Rating: rated 1.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: too much

Positives

  • robust
  • storage compartment
  • whistle
  • lanyard

Negatives

  • difficult to get a good direction on spark
  • difficult to get a good spark
  • storage compartment is small, quite small
  • whistle is weak and difficult to use

  • did I mention this weighs a lot

I tested it against two other striker type Strikers and then got rid of it.

Didn't bother taking it on even one camp trip.
