Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kit Giveaway


Zippo has created an Emergency Fire Kit that provides an ideal way to start a fire when you are on a great adventure in the wilderness (or just out hiking or camping). It is a kit that does not require anything more than what comes with it, compactly stored in a bright orange (safety color) package the size of a Zippo lighter.

Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kit


It is a simple but brilliant contraption really, comprised of a flint wheel, four wax-coated tinder sticks (that look like matches), and a waterproof ring around the edge (to protect the contents from rain, falling in the water, or any other similar occurrence).  The beauty of it is that it is self-contained; it does not require lighter fluid (hurrah!); and it will last until you need it.

To create a fire, you take out one of the tinder sticks and pull at the cotton that is inside it, spreading it out into a piece big enough to ignite.  You then spin the flint wheel (just as you would if lighting a traditional lighter), to spark against the cotton.  The spark will ignite the cotton, and then you can place it on a pile of little sticks (or other materials that will propel the fire) to get a nice-sized fire up and running.

The Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kit is a must-have for any safety/emergency kit!  It would also make a great gift idea.  You can purchase the kit for $9.95 on the Zippo website, or you can win one here (enter on the Rafflecopter form below).  A big thank you to Zippo for making the giveaway possible!  You can find them on their website, Facebook, or Twitter.


I received one Zippo Emergency Fire Starter Kit for review purposes, but the opinions stated are my own.  No other compensation was received.

Note:  All entries will be verified

  3. Well of course their classic lighters are the great, but one thing I have that I love and I think doesn't get enough attention are the handwarmers. Wonderful item to keep in your jackets for any cold day.
