Survival Purpose

Starting fire for warmth and cooking is one of the primary outdoor survival priorities. Many fire starting methods require too much energy and time. Having a simple, time-tested lighter is the best option to get going quickly.

BIC lighters have been around forever and millions of people use them on a regular basis. The are reliable and relatively safe.

We use them for camping before we try any other method. The key is to use dry tinder and fuel and organize it for great draft.
