Coghlan’s Water Proof Matches Review

Coghlan’s waterproof matches are advertised as ideal for hunters, fisherman, campers and other outdoor workers.  They are said to be waterproof and have the added feature of being ‘Safety Matches’, ie they are not strike anywhere. 

Price: $0.01 per match

Everything dry:  They light well, like any kitchen match and burn fine.  The flame is difficult to support in the slightest breeze.

Match wet:  The match head ignites giving you 1-2 seconds of flame before extinguishing as the wood portion of match does not burn when wet.

Striker & Match wet:  For us, no ignition. 

Our opinion is that they are adequate kitchen matches that don’t belong anywhere near a survival kit.
