True Utility 'Fire stash' windproof lighter review.

True Utility are a UK company who think outside the box when it comes to portable personal equipment.

They produce each of their products with brilliant craftsmanship, simplicity, and purpose, BUT....they add a bit of flair into the mix too!

Everyone has seen windproof lighters before, or flash lights that are tough and rugged, but these guys decided to put all these factors into palm sized packable units!





I had to write a review on this little lighter as it was just too good to miss out on.



The Firestash comes in at only 45x15x15mm, and is designed to be place on a key chain or zip.
I keep mine on the zip inside of my backpack in case of emergencies, so when a fire is needed quick sharp out in the forest,  and the flint just won't do the job, I reach for the Firestash!

The Firestash uses lighter fluid to ignite the wick, which is easily fillable by pulling the main body out of the lower cylinder body. With an adjustable flint and long wick this little baby will last a long time, and because it's so small, its easily packed away, and is unnoticeable in weight and appearance.....ideal for the adventurer! It lights up with ease and the flame is at least 40mm tall, which is just right for lighting a stove or something similar.

I love this little piece of equipment, it's a perfect companion on an outdoors trip, and at only £6.99 it's a bargain too! Oh..and you also get a free waterproof hardcase box to put your other possessions into! BONUS!

The True utility guys make a whole range of  'micro' utilities, and it's worth just taking a look at their website. There you will find a variety of different outdoor gadgets made to a very high specification at very affordable prices.
