Starting a fire is an important survival skill. Fire is used
for light, cooking, comfort, and warmth. Having the right tools to start your
fire can make or break your experience, whether it truly is a survival
situation or a leisurely time around a campfire. Exotac
will equip you with the right fire-starting tools. Fatwood fire starter comes
from pine tree stumps that hold large amounts of resin (a sticky flammable
organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants,
mostly fir and pine).
Exotac fire starters have been tested thoroughly. They were
evaluated on flammability, water resistance, and burn time. They will tolerate
wind and moisture. They start quickly and burn hot. They come from organic
materials and are repurposed from the lumber industry. The tin is reusable and
durable. The fatwood shavings can be lit easily with an open flame or a
ferrocerium fire starter. Fatwood splinters light best with another fire
tinder, such as cotton balls, dried grass, an open flame, or fatwood shavings.
Don’t let yourself be caught off guard in the outdoors.
Carrying an Exotac fire starter is so lightweight, you won’t even notice it in
your pack. In all reality, there’s no reason not to carry one at all times. Why
not? You never know when you may want to build an impromptu campfire.
