MATCHCAP can carry all sizes of matches from the standard kitchen strike-on-the-box to NATO lifeboat matches and even the extended length 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. All of these features keep you focused on the task at hand and not how you're going to start the next fire.

Works with both safety and strike anywhere matches
Holds matches up to 72mm in length
Square threaded cap for maximum durability
Unique lanyard attachment allows for two 550 paracord loops
Waterproof to depths of 5 meters
Lightweight aircraft grade 6061 aluminum construction Anodized and laser engraved for durability
Unique knurl for grip and use with strike anywhere matches

    Good kit.

    Posted by Leigh on 7th Dec 2014

    I purchased one of these as an alternative to the impossible to obtain K&M Matchcase. It's well engineered. Haven't bothered with the supplied strikers. I keep mine in with the matches.

    Good Quality but expensive!

    Posted by Techie_Bloke on 26th Jun 2014

    I bought this not for it's intended purpose but as a strong waterproof storage tube for my EDC kit. I keep a set of mini drill bits, needles, pins and micro tools in it - safely and sealed from the elements. The bright orange colour is a bonus and makes it easy to locate. I'll be honest that the sticky match striker pad has already fallen off into oblivion so I would be disappointed if I was using it for it's intended purpose of lighting a fire - cold and hungry too!!

    I do think it's expensive for what it is but it's very well made and nicely finished. This and the fact that the match striker has already fallen off results in the 4 stars - very disappointed by that as I added a few matches into it for just such a need. It's no where near as ridiculously expensive as the survival storage tube I saw elsewhere on Heinnie that was over 90 GBP but it would be good if Heinnie could source some other aluminium / titanium tubes of various diameter for keeping stuff in.

    Overpriced and underachieving

    Posted by Jon Briafield on 22nd Jul 2012

    Although expensive for what is essentially a matchbox, I was prepared to give this a try. Nicely compact and at first view, well made. The first time I took this out, the disc of 'strike anywhere' material on the bottom of the tube disappeared and the sheet on the barrel for safety matches disintegrated after striking about three matches. Does come with one or two replacements, but at this rate, will consume more striking media than matches. A case of style over function I'm afraid to be consigned to the gear box of no return.

    My UCO Stormproof Matchbox and matches is a much more reliable solution for around a fifth of the price.

    Well impressed

    Posted by Stephen on 24th Sep 2011

    Excellent product - even the packaging is over-engineered!!! I initially bought this as a more robust storage option for REI matches, and in this instance it does the job excellently. The fit and finish are outstanding and it even comes with additional O-rings, phosphorous strips, lanyard and a spare sandpaper disc. Everything has been well thought out and packaged as a complete unit.

    Given the size and usefulness of this capsule, I may even use it as a sort of "mini-lifecap" for meds.

    As always, fantastic service from the HH team :-)
