Here's a short list of some of the other brand options you have when shopping for survival matches:
2 – Basic Survival Matches – Flip Top 2 Pack. ...
3 – UCO Stormproof Match Kit with Waterproof Case. ...
4 – Coghlan's 940 BP Waterproof Matches. ...
5 – Fire Starting Kit w/ Magnesium Chips.
For this reason, are there waterproof matches?
Hedge your bets against the weather with a UCO Stormproof Match Kit. Stormproof Matches are windproof, waterproof, light up quickly and consistently in driving rain, heavy winds, and falling snow with a burn time of up to 15 seconds-plus they will relight after being submerged in water.
Anyways, how do stormproof matches work? Stormproof matches are designed and created with a wax coating that protects the wood beneath the coating. When you light the match, the wood begins to burn, and the coating on the outside of the match melts away. If the flame goes out for any reason, the wooden matchstick will keep smoldering beneath the coating.
Else, where can I store my matches?
All matches can create a fire hazard and must be stored safely.
Keep matches dry to ensure they'll strike when needed. ...
For long term storage, use a Food Saver and seal them inside plastic.
If you store them in a glass jar, don't put the jar high on a shelf where it can get knocked off and broken.
How do you make a match waterproof?
The steps for DIY Waterproof Matches:
Put down wax paper to protect your area.
Melt your Scentsy wax – enjoy it today, DIY it tomorrow!
Take wooden matches and swirl them around in the wax, coating the head. ...
Set them aside to dry (I used a small bowl – the wax didn't stick to it – or you could use wax paper).

Basically, it's a metal, match-shaped tube with a wick at the end. The match screws into a flask-shaped container full of fluid. On the outside of the "flask" is a rough surface which sparks the flint embedded in the wick. When you're done, you blow out the flame like you would a regular match.
When matches are soaked in turpentine and then left to dry, the resin impregnates the wood and makes it impervious to water. Nail polish and candle wax protect matches in the same way, by sealing the match head in a waterproof coating.
Although most boxes are not marked with an expiration date, matches do get old and can loose their ability to light. ... Matches do come in other colors but red is most common. There are several types of matches such as strike anywhere matches, waterproof matches and safety matches.
Can I store batteries in a plastic bag? Sure, as long as they're all the same type and age (new versus used). It's best to store them in the original packaging or to cover the terminals with plastic caps so the loose batteries don't contact each other and discharge.
The container in which you store your batteries should be made of plastic, glass, wood … anything but metal. You can also use a specialized battery storage box. Also, do not store other metal objects in the same container as your batteries.
When you get right down to it, you can make a match using only three ingredients: Potassium chlorate, red phosphorus and Elmer's glue. ... I started by mixing up a stiff paste of Elmer's yellow wood glue and potassium chlorate.

Fibrous material like cotton balls, cotton rope, char cloth, paracord, hemp rope, and jute twine can all be used as tinder. They're often coated with a water-resistant and combustion-accelerant material, such as wax or petroleum distillates, which makes them more effective in harsh conditions.
Turns out, FedEx and UPS both list strike anywhere matches under their “dangerous goods” lists and charge hazmat shipping fees to ship them. ... So, at least one brand of strike anywhere matches was indeed discontinued due to expensive shipping fees.
