    A good thing to carry for tinder is dryer lint. It's light, compressable, can be easily kept waterproof, burns like crazy, and it's free.

        get a good sparking rod!! flint and steel will work, but often you dont get as many sparks, i suggest bear gryll's firestarter from gerber, it has both a ferrocium rod and a striker, as well as a small compartment with tinder (cotton), a whistle, and signalling instructions on the outside. It works FANTASTICALLY well!!

          Flint and steel, or a flint and magnesium bar.
