Lighter not included due to Hazmat shipping restrictions. Fits Bic Classic MAXI Lighter.
Here at Exotac, we love fire. It’s the most critical component in a survival situation, yet the basic options out there haven’t evolved much. We’re here to change that. Your basic lighter is still the easiest-to-use fire source, but there are some serious limitations. If it gets wet, forget about using it until hours later when the flint has dried out. Want to secure it to your pack so you’re sure it won’t get lost? Too bad. Need to keep the gas button depressed for awhile to light your fire? Hope you like a seriously hot thumb. These might sound like only minor annoyances, but if you’re ever in a survival situation and fire becomes your #1 priority, it’s no longer a minor problem to find that your lighter is missing or unusable.
We've designed the fireSLEEVE to fit the Bic Classic Lighter like a glove and fix all of those problems. We relentlessly tweaked the design and sorted through dozens of materials until we found the perfect combination of high end polymers to give you the feel and performance you need. Throughout the design process we also field tested to ensure that the fireSLEEVE will perform under harsh conditions so you can be sure that it will work flawlessly when you really need it.

Construction is real good, tab that is designed to hold the gas button down is a bit temperamental. This is a $9.95 item.

I wish the whole product was made of a hard plastic like the top or at least a thicker more robust rubber. I find you need to really smack the top down to give it a positive seal. I definitely wouldn't use the top to add it to my key ring as the bottom ( the part with the lighter) could fall off. However the opposite would work okay. This is still a good add to a BOB.

What really grabs me about the firesleeve is just how much nicer it makes the lighter I use every day fit my hand.
