Interesting in a done-for-you fire starting kit? If so, consider the B.O.S.S. Off Grid Tools Survival Fire Starting Kit. Although I have my own fire starting kits, none include everything below which has me to wondering if I should add a few items because there’s so much included in this kit!
Personally, I think they add a bit too much to their kits for the average person for the “average” survival situation, but you’ll certainly have plenty options to choose from should one not work or if you have a preference.
At the very least, you’re going to have plenty of supplies and gadgets to hone your fire starting skills beforehand. I would strongly consider buying one kit and divvying up the supplies among multiple bug out bags and you’ll be that much more prepared. Wish you had more of the supplies included? Go directly to their and buy a fire B.O.S.S. refill pack for cheap (I couldn’t find it on Amazon) but I did just buy the refill pack from their website because, you know, I need more survival stuff in my life, lol.
FYI, the full fire starting kit–not just the refill pack–contains the following items:
- 1 Lighter, Waterproof Matches, Ferro Rod and Striker, Pocket Fresnel Lens
- 6 Magnesium Capsules, Steel Woo,l 4 pieces Char Cloth, 2 Tealight Candles, 1 oz. Fatwood Sticks
- Foil Paper, Pencil Sharpener, 6 Tinder Tabs, 10′ Jute Twine, Waterproof Tinder Ball
- Wire Saw, 6′ Kevlar Thread (for fire bow/drill), 1 Flange Bearing (for fire bow/drill), 1 Folding Knife, and 1 waterproof survival instruction sheet
