The MATCHCAP is a nearly indestructible waterproof match case for storing matches and other fire starting material. By integrating the red-phosphorus striker into the threaded are of the capsule, we created an innovative solution for having to pack separate match strikers. To ensure our match case was going to be the best out there, we added a concealed o-ring, durable square threads, a bottom strike-anywhere striker, and a high-end aesthetic to bring it all together.

The MATCHCAP can carry all sizes of matches from the standard kitchen strike-on-the-box to NATO lifeboat matches and even the extended length stormproof matches. With the dual-striker design you can use safety matches, strike-anywhere matches, or a combination of two. An O-ring keeps both the matches and the red phosphorus (strike-on-the-box) striker dry.

The inside of the MATCHCAP is larger at the bottom. Place the majority of your matches tip down with a few tip-up for maximum capacity.

Do not overfill the MATCHCAP. Leave approximately 1/4 of the volume empty. When using the phosphorus striker on the top of the MATCHCAP 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.

Pros: Overall Quality
Cons: None
This is my second Exotac product and I'm impressed. It's a simple product (how complicated can a match case be?) but very well made and I appreciate that. While KnifeCenter's description states that it is made in China, the box it came in said it was made in America as does the Exotac website.

Impressive looking
Great container with great material qualities. It would of been nice if some waterproof matches would of been included with purchase. I really like the quality behind this product. Looks expensive because it is. It is worth to have at least one though. I would recommend. Gave a 4 since it is a little on the expensive side.
