Light & Mighty

The Ultimate Fire Starter from Vargo has everything you need to start, grow, and maintain a roaring fire—just add fuel. First, unscrew the ferrocerium rod from the bellows and use the integrated scraper to ignite your tinder. Then, extend the bellows, aim at the base of the fire, and gently blow to add more oxygen and nurture that spark into a flame. Weighing just 1.8 ounces and good for thousands of strikes, the Ultimate Fire Starter can be used to get wood burning, revive an existing fire, light a stove, and more. And because it produces 5,000-degree sparks, it’s great for wet or stubborn tinder that requires higher levels of heat to ignite.

Note: Please use Leave No Trace best practices when building a campfire.
