UCO Introduces Longest-Burning Windproof and Waterproof Matches

Seattle, WA- Whether in a torrential rainstorm in Madagascar, a wind tunnel on Mt. Rainier, or without power in your damp, dark basement, the UCO Titan Stormproof Match Kit™ guarantees to bring the user heat and light. Burning for up to 25 seconds, the Titan Stormproof Match™ is the longest-burning windproof and waterproof match available, and will even re-light itself after being submerged in water.


“The Titan Stormproof Match is a game changer in the realm of fire-making,” says Peter Pontano, UCO’s Product Development Manager. “Having instant access to heat and light, no matter what conditions you are in, provides peace of mind to anyone from a weekend backpacker to an emergency prepper to an urban woodsman.”

The Titan Stormproof Match Kit includes 12 matches, 3 replaceable strikers, a waterproof case that floats, and a cord for attachment to lanyard. The Titan Stormproof Match is also available without the case and is sold in packs of 25 with 2 spare strikers. Each match is 4.125″ long, almost double the length of a standard match. MSRP – Kit: $9.99, MSRP – 25-pack: $9.99.

The UCO Titan Stormproof Match Kit debuts January 2015 at the Outdoor Retailer Market in Salt Lake City at the Industrial Revolution booth #24031.
