The Exotac Firesleeve is a contraption that allows you to make lighters tougher, weatherproof and easier to use when out in nature or any kind of rugged environment. This reusable device is made of grip-friendly rubber and is designed to fit over disposable Bic lighters.

The Firesleeve seals out water when its capped to the point that the lighter will stay bone dry even when submerged in water for 30 minutes at a depth of three feet. The lighter will also be capable of floating if dropped into the water.

The contraption also includes a strap-like mechanism that can be looped over the lighter's gas button to keep it lit, rather than requiring you to place your thumb on the button.

This contraption is a simple but useful one that addresses a basic need of campers and hikers -- to keep their fires dry.
