    butane lighter, sparking rod, birchbark, a small bottle of rubbing alcohol, and cotton balls. the alcohol will take a spark and burn on anything or on its own, but if you soak a cotton ball in it, it will burn even longer that vaseline-covered cottonballs, and with a MUCH taller, hotter flame.

    I like to carry my StrikeForce fire starter with me almost everywhere I go as it is always in my day pack. The StrikeForce is a flint and steel on steroids, the thing is huge. And occasionally I carry my fire pistol with me (it just takes more time to get it going right).

    Either a zippo or a swedish fire steel works even when wet

    I carry waterproof matches and birch bark. The birch bark works great.

    Obviously some of you have never actually had to USE a flint and steel! I carry a lighter with rubber bands wrapped around the body of it. The rubber bands are made from cutting bicycle inner tube. The rubber keeps it from slipping out of my pocket and doubles as the (waterproof) fire starter. Ever see a tire burn?

    Some flint and a knife because you can use flint many times and it lasts way longer than a disposable lighter.

    I carry a magnesium fire starter and manilla rope in my back pack. The rope has many uses. Cut off a 3" piece and unbraid it. Form into a ball, place tinder on top of it and light with sparks, in very cold weather use magnesium shavings in small pile to help ignition.

    I use a "Light My Fire" Swedish flint and steel. It is light weight, small enough to carry in my pocket. Will produce 1000+ strikes.
