I had some issues with my original article review of Instafire, and with it getting closer and closer to summer camping season I thought it would be a good time to do an update on it.
My friends over at Survival Based have actually been members of Survival Life for quite a while and have recently reached out to me to offer their services.
From time to time I am going to be reviewing their products and when I can, I will be offering you coupon codes and or special discounts from them.
So that being the case, check out the site and leave me a comment to let me know if you see anything specific that you want me to do a review on!
If you feel like this is something that you should have in your gear at all times, don’t forget to add this coupon code when you check out:
The original Review with updated links:
Several months ago I went to the self reliance expo in Dallas Texas and ran into this product, I had seen it around a few other expo’s but had never been able to really give it much thought.
I read the shiny package and really thought it would be a bit of a joke.
It looked more like a freeze dried food than a fire starter.
When the guy actually pulled a handful out of a bucket of water and set it on fire with the first strike of a match I have to say I was impressed.
After spending a few minutes talking to the guy I really started to see the full potential of Instafire.
Check out this video that I found from the same expo and you will see what I mean: ( it’s a little long but well worth it)
After talking to him personally I really think that this should be added to every bug out bag.
The only question I have is since it is paraffin based, what happens when it gets warm… like say from sitting in the Texas sun all afternoon?
What do you guys think?
P.S. if you want to try it out for yourself check out the 10 pack mylar kit:
