They say you can go three days without water, but in freezing weather, you can only go three hours without shelter. Maintaining your body heat in extreme conditions is critical and many have died or lost limbs from frostbite. Building a fire quickly in harsh environments can be labor intensive and difficult, especially when time is of the essence.
Enter the Tinder Grenade by Poor Mans Preparing. These innovative firestarters are waterproof, windproof and the burn for up to 5 minutes. Each tinder grenade is the firestarter (stormproof match) and waterproof tinder all rolled into one. Collect your kindling and main sequence fuel, strike the match tip with the included striker pad, and prepare to get warm.
As with any piece of survival gear, your most important tool is your brain. Be prepared and put all your skills and tools to the test before venturing into the wilderness. Casual trips, or slight deviations from a trail can lead to injury, vehicle trouble, or loss of direction leaving even the most experienced stranded overnight. Always let at least three people know where you are going and when to expect you. Carry water, food and tools even though you can't foresee needing them. It's better to be equipped, than regretting not being prepared.
