Sweetfire Strikeable Fire Starter

rated 4 of 5 stars An interesting eco-friendly product that is excellent for lazy lighting of campfires and wood stoves in good conditions. It is extremely easy to use and burns longer than most fire starters, but does not perform as well as alternative fire starters in adverse weather. It would not be my go-to fire starter if I anticipated adverse conditions such as wind and rain, but will likely be in my pack for those weekend trips where the weather is more predictable and I want to get a fire going with the minimum… Full review

Original Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I carried one of these (as well as other candle lanterns) for years, then... Once upon a time I never went into the woods for an overnight without a candle lantern of one kind or another. I probably had five or so different makes and models. They still lurk in my gear storage. This is one of the better ones, maybe the best one. For example, this lantern gives nearly 360 degree light as many do not. Still, all candle lanterns have problems and this is no exception. There is potential for spilled… Full review

Original Candle Lantern + LED

rated 4 of 5 stars UCO Original Candle Lantern Duo kit with LED light. At one point, they sold the candle lantern as a kit that included a LED light that fits in the bottom of the lantern.  (The light doesn’t go through the lantern, but rather is used more when the unlit lantern is held as if it were a flashlight.) LED light works on coin cells. The LED light can be used in the lantern or removed and used separately. It has a little clip so it can stand up.  It also comes with an elastic band that can be attached… Full review

Fleece Storage Sack for Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars UCO Fleece cover for Original Candle lantern These candle lanterns have a glass globe which needs to be protected as they can break. Also, the chain can get caught on other things when it is loose. The fleece cover is a good solution for this as it both provides protection, and packs the chain away. I don’t think the fleece provides quite as much protection as the neoprene Cocoon cover. However the fleece is more flexible in that it also fits the Micro and Mini candle lanterns.  (I know they… Full review

Cocoon

rated 5 of 5 stars Protection for a candle lantern. These candle lanterns have a glass globe which needs to be protected as they can break. Also, the chain can get caught on other things when it is loose. This neoprene cover is a good solution for this as it both provides protection, and packs the chain away. I find it to be more protective than the fleece cover, but not as flexible. Full review
