With a single push, tinder placed in the end of the piston is spontaneously ignited by the heat of compression, instantly becoming a glowing ember with no more effort than lighting a match.  Literally, fire with air...

As a survival device, one of the most compelling aspects of Wilderness Solutions fire pistons is their ability to ignite a variety of natural tinders that can be collected in the woods and fields using only the air we breath.

Some of these tinders having practical value for fire making include true tinder fungus (Inonotus obliquus ) , mullein pith, milkweed pod ovum, milkweed down, cattail fluff, poplar cotton, and wood punk.  In addition, cotton charcloth, familiar to flint and steel firemakers works very well in the fire piston and can be made at home.

Our Scout fire piston is constructed entirely from modern space age materials and engineered to hold up under the harshest outdoor environments.

This compression fire starter was designed with the modern hiker, backpacker and survivalist in mind and features a high compression O ring seal for dependability. Itís completely water proof and impervious to the elements.
