Exotac tinderTIN Twin Pack is a brilliant piece of kit for anyone new to fire-lighting, as well as those who require a back-up pack of tinder in their rucksack at all times. This handy twin pack contains one tin of Fatwood Splinters, and another of Fatwood Shavings.

Fatwood comes from pine tree stumps that contain a large amount of natural resin. It lights quickly, burns hot, and is wind and moisture tolerant. The Fatwood used by Exotac is 100% natural and grown in Georgia, USA. It is recovered from the lumber industry as waste and recycled into tinderTIN fire-starting materials. Carry one of these fatwood tinderTINs with you, and you'll never be without easy-to-light tinder.

"We tested a large range of tinder - both natural and synthetic - and these two came out on top when evaluated on flammability, water resistance and burn time. The fatwood shavings can be easily lit with an open flame or with a little practice, a ferrocerium fire starter like our polySTRIKER XL. The fatwood splinters are best lit with another tinder such as fatwood shavings, cotton balls, dry grass, or an open flame." - Exotac

  Item arrived promptly, could have done with being slightly bigger I.e. more tinder. Due to its small size, I have this saved for emergency use only as there is not enough for common use.

  Excellent natural tinder. Comes second to personally harvested Silver Birch bark, but I have used all I had, so carrying this is an acceptable green alternate till I can collect, dry and store more Birch.

  Started a burn first time. I was very impressed with the heat given out by the fat wood. The screw down metal tins will also be useful after the tinder has been used.

  Very sappy and flammable. Only need a little bit to get fire going well. Screw on tin lids are very good.

  Very effective; only a spark started the fire, and it's all natural. Smells nicely of pine too.

  Have only had occasion to use once so far - teaching people new (even newer than myself) to bushcraft how to get a fire going. Was a very damp day in the lakes, but adding a little bit of this certainly helped and gave the new person confidence in their new abilities.

  Recent foul weather gave me a chance to try out the twinpack as a quick way get a brew going on a kelly kettle. A pince of shavings along with a few larger pieces from the other tin help to get a fire going fast. This great product takes up no space. Anyone who loves the outdoors should have this in their kit for fire-making in any weather.
