The basic lighter is still the easiest-to-use fire source, but there are some serious limitations. If it gets wet, forget about using it until hours later when the flint has dried out. Want to secure it to your pack so you’re sure it won’t get lost? Too bad. Need to keep the gas button depressed for awhile to light your fire? Hope you like a seriously hot thumb. These might sound like only minor annoyances, but if you’re ever in a survival situation and fire becomes your #1 priority, it’s no longer a minor problem to find that your lighter is missing or unusable.
Exotac designed the fireSLEEVE to fit the Bic Classic Lighter like a glove and fix all of those problems. They relentlessly tweaked the design and sorted through dozens of materials until they found the perfect combination of high end polymers to give you the feel and performance you need. Throughout the design process they also field tested to ensure that the fireSLEEVE will perform under harsh conditions so you can be sure that it will work flawlessly when you really need it.
Only use with a Bic Classic lighter for a secure fit. Use top or bottom attachment points to secure your lighter to a lanyard. You can place cap on the bottom of the body during use. Never leave the gas lock on for more more than 30 seconds.
