Fat Rope Stick is winning people over world-wide. With it's compact packaging and weather-mocking ability to get a fire going, it's quickly becoming the go-to fire starting tinder for everyone's emergency kits, camp setups, and bug-out bags. But we wanted an expert opinion...so we sent some to Kevin Estela of Estela Wilderness School. Here's what he had to say about Fat Rope Stick:
I’ve long asserted you should always carry pre-made tinder with you into the field. Granted, you may have to make do one day with what you can find off the land but why risk not being able to make a fire in cold conditions? The folks at the Fiddleback Outpost recently sent me a sample of their Fat Rope Stick and I gave it a go. Compared to “standard” vaseline and cotton balls, Fat Rope Stick is a whole new animal. It is cotton based and the additive helps the frayed cotton fabric take a spark easily. An added benefit of Fat Rope Stick is that it will keep your kit clean since the plastic coating prevents any additive from bleeding out. Fat Rope Stick is a great example of TINDER that will take a spark. It’s the fuel source you need to ignite a proper fire.
