It’s cold, snowy and wet here in Northeastern Ohio, so I decided to take some of our Crate Club products out to see if I could get a fire started. I’m using products that were sent out in previous crates to give you an idea of what┬átype of products we include in the crates as well as the practical use of them.

As you can see sometimes getting a fire started isn’t as easy as it seems. If I used a longer Firesteel I probably could have gotten the Exotac Tinder ignited quicker. Being that my hands were really cold and it was windy just add’s to the complexity of a simple task. Get out into the field and test your gear and skills. Nothing replaces dirt time.

Products used in this Video:

  • Exotac TinderTin
  • Exotac FireSteel
  • Custom Taurus Folding Knife (This is a collaboration between the Crate Club staff and Taurus and was only made available to Crate Club subscribers).
