About our Stormproof Matches

Cannot be shipped Internationally due to shipping restrictions!


UCO Stormproof Matches are the best matches available for harsh conditions. Each match burns for about 15 seconds even if it is windy, rainy, or cold. The matches even burn underwater. Two large stand-alone strikers are included.  Combine these matches with our MATCHCAP™ for a match (no pun intended) made in heaven!  These are the matches the MATCHCAP™ was designed for!


These matches burn quickly and aggressively so be prepared.  Although wind and water will not put them out, it will hamper your ability to ignite other materials by reducing the flame size.  Be sure to have a wind break and fire preparations in place prior to lighting these.

The stick of these matches does NOT burn.  Once the material has been consumed (15s), the match will go out.

We always recommend taking along several types of matches to increase your fire starting possibilities.  In this case we still recommend paring these stormproof matches with standard kitchen matches.  As a backup to matches we always recommend a fire starter, such as our nanoSTRIKER™, polySTRIKER™, or fireROD™.

  1. Fantastic Matches 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2018

    I purchased these matches to go in the Matchcap XL and they fit perfectly and when I lit the matched they performed as advertised. Good pairing.

  2. Best Outdoor Matches EVER! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2015

    These matches are great. I keep a decent supply available all the time and make sure they are available whenever a need may arise. EDC carry in Exotec water proof tube. Waterproof boxes (rounds) in BOB, car, home. Always readily available. Give them a try you will see how useful they are in many out door adventures and even in door if must needs be but be sure to ventilate indoors.

  3. Hot very hot 5 Star Review

    If your going into any wilderness area this is a must have.
    This is the real deal.

  4. Not worth it 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2013

    Used these matches on a recent hike/backpack trip. The first match broke in half when trying to strike on a stone. Grabbed another on and tried to strike on the bottom of the barrel holder, wouldn't strike. Had to open the match cap and strike on the longer strike pad, which can be dangerous. Once lit, tried to light a lantern and the flames were so fierce and erratic that I could not get the elements to catch. The do burn intensely, but not for the advertised time. I struck several matches and found they have only about a 5 second intense burn. I will no be purchasing these again.

  6. WOW! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2012

    WOW! These are not your average matches!! I ordered these for my sister along with the matchcap XL and the tinder shavings. I used one of the matches in a home environment so I can not comment on how it would perform for it's intended use (outdoors). I would still recommend these and plan to eventually buy this along with the matchcap for myself.
