The UCO Titan Stormproof Match was first available four years ago and is based on the previous design of UCO Stormproof Matches. These matches are waterproof, windproof, and provide a long burn. They can’t be stomped out and will relight if submerged in water, making them perfect for use in poor weather. The long burn time can run up to 25 seconds, which should be more than enough to light a fire, but 100 matches don’t seem like enough for you, consider Swiss Safe 5-in1 Fire Starter All Weather Matches instead, which can be lit over 16,000 times.
The Titan matches are 4.125 inches long, ensuring a long burn while preventing accidental injuries. This package comes with four boxes, each of which includes 25 matches and two extra strikers. The boxes themselves are not waterproof, so you will need to find a container for these matches. Try the smaller UCO Stormproof All Weather Matches and Case are an alternative if you want an all-in-one kit & don’t require extended length matches. The stormproof match kit includes a waterproof case, but these Titan matches are only offered in regular boxes.
These matches are expensive, coming in at about $.55 per match. Assuming each match burns for about 25 seconds, this entire package (all four boxes) will burn for over 41 minutes but will set you back $55. A cheaper (but less reliable) alternative is Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10 Pack. If you know you will be in a life-or-death situation where you will need to light a fire then these matches are exactly what you need, but if you’re less of an extremist you can explore other options if you want to save a bit of money.
