I have come to realize over the years, that the ability to stay warm and to start a fire is CRITICAL when spending anytime in the outdoors.
So, I am always on the look out for a self contained fire starting device. I have used Magnesium with a striker, Vaseline on matches, lint…on and on.
Several months ago I was introduced to the Fire Puck. What a great idea, a small, self contained way to start a fire in any condition EASILY.
I tried the fire puck on a recent WINTER trip in central Utah. I spent part of the day hiking in snow up a narrow long canyon. When I arrived at my camping spot at about 3pm I decided to start the evening fire, both for warmth and to dry out my sweaty clothes.
I made a 3 foot circle in the snow, built a teepee with kindling, and placed the fire puck under the pile of wood.
With one quick strike the fire puck shot flames about 3 inches high, and quickly made a fire out of my somewhat wet wood.
I did not have to worry about matches, flint, magnesium or anything else. I just had an easy fire.
I have decided to keep many of these at my home, I want one in all of my packs, in my 72 hour kit, and some on hand for any kind of an emergency. Way to go Fire Puck, you have produced a great product.

I also made a quick video of the event that you can watch on Youtube:

A great product with a great company behind it.
An easy way to carry warmth and fire in a self contained no fuss, and SMALL package
