Good to have in your winter survival kit.
- Easy to carry and pack
- Plastic container
- Container doesn't seal tight
Threw this on an order I was making to get to a free shipping point. Used it on a recent overnight backpack trip where I was having a little trouble getting my small fire going. Worked great!
Would prefer a small metal (like an altoids tin) instead of the plastic - and have the lid screw on. I worried that it would come open in my pack.

Although very lightweight, the container is not crush-proof and the Tinder Dust is not very good. It takes a lot of dust to get a good flame and is hard to light with a spark tool. For lighting the best tool is a lighter or match, i.e. a flame.
I now use cotton squares with one little fingernail sized dollop of Vaseline on each. I fold up (pre-vaselined) and store as many as I can push into a Coghlan's Plastic Match Box. I can use the striker on the bottom of the box and in two strikes I get a flame, 3 inches tall for 2 minutes.
