We thought this item seemed a bit pricey (even though at $.20 per fire, it would seem like a real deal out in the field) so we looked into it... Interestingly, the only other windproof/waterproof match factory in the world was located in China - until it (ironically) burned down in 2008!

Strike anywhere for a good price for a bug-out or emergency bag. Lots of matches in a compact space- only quibble is I would have preferred the total length to be just a hair (1/4-1/2") longer for comfort (they're a tiny bit shorter than 2", and 1" of that is match head).
