The UCO Stormproof Match Kit is a waterproof case that includes 25 matches and 3 strikers. The case features an integrated striker on the outside to provide an easy location for lighting matches, and can hold up to 40 matches.

The ribbed case is easy to grip with cold hands. Unlike other “waterproof” or “windproof” matches, UCO Stormproof Matches are easy to light, and will stay lit for up to 15 seconds, even after being submerged in water.

Being able to reliably make a fire is vital for cooking, generating warmth, and in survival situations, making signal fires. UCO Stormproof Matches are perfect for camping, emergency kits, and should be part of every 10 Essentials check list.

    Great Matches

    These are some great matches, stay lit even underwater. If you don’t believe me, go youtube UCO stormproof matches and see for yourself.

    Product came as advertised. Just like the boxed UCO matches it comes with extra striking strips. All 25 matches accounted for as well as a cotton ball I wasn’t expecting, but knowing it’s there just incase I need it is nice to know. The case itself is about as long as my hand is wide, fits right in the palm of my hand. No leaks in case, it handled my water soak test.

    A good thing to have in your firestarting kit. I added it in with my firestarting kit, I usually keep multiple methods of starting fires with me just incase. If I end up using all the matches up, I can easily use the case to keep dry tinder in or I could simply order some more UCO matches that come in a matchbox and refill the case.

    Definitely a must have for your emergency/survival kit, hardly takes up any space in mine.

    Best Survival Matches Available with a Durable Case
    By Tradecraft TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 7, 2011
    The UCO Stormproof Match Case Kit is an excellent addition to your survival gear or E.D.C. kit. If you were to have only one type of match then the Stormproof matches are the ones to carry. They are windproof and will remain lit even after being completely submerged in water. The match will burn for approximately 15 seconds even in windy and wet conditions. When used in conjunction with Vaseline impregnated cotton balls you have a great method to start a fire during inclement weather. These matches should only be used outdoors and would not be recommended for children as once the match is lit it won’t go out until completely burned. I believe in redundancy and also carry a Swedish Firesteel – Army Model as my primary fire starting tool.

    – Comes with 25 Stormproof matches
    – Came with one cotton ball (There is enough room to add one extra cotton ball.)
    – Case is durable and waterproof (I submerged the case in water for one hour and the matches remained completely dry.)
    – A match striker is located on the outside of the case for easy and convenient use
    – Two spare strikers are included
    – Available in bright yellow or green
    – Kit weight is only 1.7 ounces

    – A bit on the bulky side. I wouldn’t mind a redesign of the case to a rectangular shape with a lower profile. This would increase storage options within your gear.

    I really like the UCO Stormproof Match Case Kit as it is the only case I have seen that will fit these extra large matches. Stormproof matches are larger than most matches and therefore require a larger case. Most of the cases available are designed for standard size matches will not fit the Stormproof matches.

    I highly recommend the UCO Stormproof Match Case Kit as a part of your fire starting gear.
