AoA Everybody

Kindly forgive me for being a total noob here but I have been reading up on different forums and it seems that people mostly prefer matchboxes for camping/survival gear. dont you think it would be even more wiser to carry ordinary disposable lighters (the ones with built-in torch). because a lighter doesn't get wet. quick means of generating fire and comes with added benefit of a small torch. gentlemen, what do you think? lighter or match?

Regards.

@taha @ka_khan @avais - thank you brothers for your encouragement. I'll soon be posting some other DIY stuff that I made which includes a small First Aid Kit, Dental Hygiene Kit and A Small Sleeping Kit. But that could take a week as I am busy with my Exams now. I'll keep you guys posted.

@12Gauge - Brother, It is very wise to keep disposable lighters in your backpack instead of a box of matches like these and people often do and Even I carry a clipper lighter and not this. Some people also carry Fire steel but it only creates a spark and you need some tender to make fire. But, with due respect, I completely rule out the idea of keeping the cheap Chinese lighter where one is not sure whether it would light up or not. This uncertainty is not good for any
outdoor , camping or survival scenerio.

This Waterproof Matchbox Project was just an alternative to the very expensive, Coleman's Waterproof matchboxes.

Very informative. One thing I want to add. Put Ice cream stick between the two striker faces then glue them. It will help user to ignite match easily.

Here is a Video Tutorial (hope I am not breaking any Rules) for making a Good FireStarter by using an Ordinary Lighter. I followed this onto making a Cheap FireSteel Type Firestarter using an Ordinary widely available Tokai Lighter.

For that you may use Empty Bottles of Multivitamins such as "Centrum" or Small Size Supplement Bottles used for body building. Alternatively get a "Nalgene Water Bottle" and carry 100's of Cigarettes with you.
