A windproof lighter is an essential part of any outdoor survival kit. It’s perfect for starting fires or lighting camp stoves outdoors while hiking, skiing, or on the water. High performance butane fuel (not included) provides a nearly invisible flame that stays lit even in winds up to 80 miles per hour. The electric ignition lasts through thousands of reliable sparks, and the 4-gram fuel tank holds enough fuel for up to 1,000 ignitions. The impact-resistant, rubberized housing is water resistant and features a fuel window with an easy-to-read gauge.
While the service and customer response was wonderful with the staff at the National Geographic Store, I was very disappointed with the lighter purchased. We had to return it 3 times, due to malfunctioning parts on the lighter itself. WE finally gave up on the product. But I will again shop at the store....but I would not recommend this product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
