The Exotac MATCHCAP XL™ is an all-in-one waterproof match case and striker, suitable for use with both standard safety matches as well as strike-anywhere matches.

The MATCHCAP XL™ isn’t limited to just matches. Using a Stormproof (2.9 inches long) match, the new design leaves 0.3 inches to spare for tinder storage. If using kitchen matches, nearly half of the MATCHCAP XL™ is available for storage. Use the extra space to store water purification tablets, tinder, medicine, fishing hooks, first aid kit, etc.

The inside of the MATCHCAP XL™ is larger at the bottom. Place the majority of your matches tip down with a few tip-up for maximum capacity. When using the phosphorus striker on the top of the MATCHCAP XL™ it is advisable to strike from the top (opening) towards the O-ring. This will prevent any stray sparks from entering the inside of the MATCHCAP XL™. Carry a variety of matches (stormproof, kitchen, strike-anywhere) as each one has a distinct advantage.

  Such I well made piece of kit! Loads of room for a selection of different types of matches and a cotton wool ball to stop them rattling. My only reservation is that the stick on pad at the end for non safety matches does appear venerable but I guess time will tell. This will sit in my jacket pocket as part of my fire kit for a good number of years.
