Getting a fire going is an essential part of the camping and outdoors exploration experience, so the Vargo Ultimate Camp Fire Starter enables it to be a quick task. The device weighs just 1.8-ounces (less than a traditional lighter) and consists of a ferro rod that has a striker on the side. This enables users to create sparks and light kindling rather than using other means.
After the sparks have been created and a fire is in the works, the Vargo Ultimate Camp Fire Starter extends up to 18-inches in size to let users blow directly into the heart of the fire. This will expedite the fire-starting process and allow other kindling and wood to catch fire quickly without having to get close and potentially risk injury in the process.
