Publish date:

Seattle, WA - July 18, 2018 - UCO, the brand that set the industry standard for windproof and waterproof matches, is proud to introduce new fire-starting options for Spring 2019. With the addition of two fire striker kits and a metallic match case, UCO continues to prove why it’s ahead of the pack when it comes to staying lit, no matter what.

“Adding ferro rod options to our fire-starting lineup is a no-brainer, and we are thrilled with the new kits for 2019,” says Peter Pontano, UCO’s Director of Marketing and Product Development. “In addition, our new Brass Match Case is a super sleek way to protect your matches from the elements while adding a touch of style to your gear.”

UCO’s new Survival Fire Striker Ferrocerium Firestarting Kit is the perfect entry level option for outdoor adventures. The kit includes a ferrocerium rod capable of 3,000 strikes attached to a CNC-machined aluminum handle, along with a stainless steel multi-tool that also serves as a striker. This compact kit weighs just 1oz and will be available in two colors. MSRP: $9.99. 

Fire Steel Survival Kit

Need more fire power? A second Fire Striker kit option will include the same great features with a larger ferro rod capable of 10,000 strikes. MSRP: $14.99.

UCO will also offer a stylish new option to protect and store matches with the Brass Match Case. This durable case holds up to 15 Stormproof Matches and features a completely water-tight lid. The Brass Match Case can be easily connected to a lanyard for maximum portability. MSRP: $14.99.

Brass Match Kit-Updated

The new UCO fire starters will be on display at Summer Outdoor Retailer in Denver at the Industrial Revolution booth #46061-UL.
