How long they burn for
Waterproof? When I see companies claim their firestarters to be waterproof I admit I’m confused. Water resistance is one thing, being waterproof is completely different. Waterproof means that water simply can’t put it out. Water resistant means that it can handle some moisture without being waterlogged.
Dip into water and then light?
Fluff, wet and light?
Does pouring water on them put them out?
Windproof : Same principle applies – Can I blow them out?
Don’t need a full plug? Easy to cut in half? What about long ways?

Point : Don’t get this confused with another fire starter product; I did a quick search for this online and Bigfoot Fire Camp Fire Survival Aid 10ft popped up. This is a fire cord product that is similarly name but is a different product.

Comparable Products : When getting my notes together for this episode, I did come across similar products; some have similar prices but what I noticed was that some don’t burn for as long. Bigfoot Bushcraft claims 5 minutes while a few others that I saw would only burn for 60 seconds. Some stated 5 minutes as well.

There are a number of companies who make similar products; I don’t know who initially came up with this and who is copying who but I can say that there are a handful of these plugs out on the market. Some companies are less expensive than the Bigfoot Bushcraft version and include greater quantities for the money.
