We all claim to be campfire-starting masters but in reality we can all use a little help getting a robust campfire started. So we bring in the back ups. These easy to use fire starters work fast, are small (you can sneak it in), and allow for a fire to spark every time. We all know sitting around the campfire is the best part of camping – so don’t be the person that can’t get a fire going!

All the materials are recycled and no chemicals are added. Thus, it is safe to cook over and with no funny chemical odor.

As its name suggests, the Zippo Outdoor Cedar fire starter is made of compressed cedar chips layered with wax. This creates an excellent fire starter that can replace tinder if it is wet or small twigs and branches are at a premium.

The wax aids in easy lighting and the compressed cedar burns for a long time (the perfect combination for a tinder replacement). The “puck” nicknamed for its hockey puck shape, is scored into four sections for multiple uses. It’s small enough to be extremely packable yet creates a large enough, sustained flame to easily start a fire.

Price: $1.95
