One of the main questions campers ask before buying waterproof matches is what match length is best and what kind of storage container should they get.
As mentioned above, you can pick from mini matches, regular matches, and super-long matches. Long match sticks are more comfortable to use. Plus, it is also easy to start a fire with the longer type compared to shorter ones. For example, since some matches can burn up to 20 seconds, it is best to have a significant length to hold them for long, even without gloves.
1 – 2 inches long
2 – 2.5 inches long
9 – 12 inches long
EDC, lighting cigarettes
Starting camp fires, igniting camping stoves, etc.
Surviving situations, fire up grills and fireplaces, applications that need extra burning time
When it comes to storage, you should consider those that come in hard cases made of plastic or resin rather than those in cardboard boxes. Although the matches are waterproof, keeping them into a watertight container ensure an extra layer of protection and usually gives you the ability to light up the match faster.
