Emergency and Survival
Tried and true, the UST MagBar Fire Starter combines magnesium shavings and the sparks of a flint to start a fire when you need it. Use the serrated edge to shave off magnesium into a pile, then use the other edge to strike the flint bar and create sparks to reliably start hundreds of fires.
A classic tool for camping, backpacking, and emergency preparedness, the lightweight UST StarFlash Floating Signal Mirror has a built-in precision aiming system for accurate signaling, and it won’t sink if dropped in water. In addition to using it for emergency signaling, it’s handy for personal grooming as well. The virtually unbreakable Floating Mirror also features a lanyard hole for convenient attachment to gear, and it works even in overcast conditions or at night with moonlight or other light sources.
Conserving up to 90 percent of body heat, the compact, lightweight, and waterproof UST Survival Reflect Blanket can be used for heat deflection, body heat insulation, and as a wind or rain barrier. This protective gear is ideal for wilderness survival and home emergency preparedness, the aluminized blanket can also be seen from a distance, making it a suitable emergency signaling device in a pinch.
The lightweight and compact TekFire PRO Fuel-Free Lighter allows for quick and easy fire starting. Windproof, flameless, and electronic, it requires no butane fuel or adjustments for altitude. The included ParaTinder™ wrist lanyard can be unwound for about 3 feet of all-purpose paracord with an added single tinder thread. The lighter also comes with a USB cord for easy recharging from any USB port. NOTE: Only ignite inner red core strand of ParaTinder. Do not ignite white inner core strands or outer colored jacket. These can melt plastic residue on electrodes blocking the electrical arc and prevent lighter from working. TO CLEAR RESIDUE FROM ELECTRODES: Use a wooden toothpick or plastic knife to gently scrape clear. To avoid electric shock or burn, DO NOT push electric arc button on while cleaning.
Lightweight, safe, and easy-to-carry, UST’s WetFire Tinder 8-pk is guaranteed to light in windy or wet conditions.

WetFire tinder burns up to 5 minutes and can be extinguished instantly. Offering a 5-year shelf life, the cubed tinders are individually packed to maintain freshness. They’re great for use in combination with any UST sparking device, including StrikeForce, SparkForce, BlastMatch, and Sparkie (sold separately). Available in 5-, 8-, and 12-pack quantities.
