    good bad but not ugly!

    Posted by Rob on 19th Jun 2020

    looks awesome, (i got the orange), way to expensive, but thats never stopped me getting knives so wont stop getting me getting EDC stuff either.
    had it a week lid wouldn't release on the spring?
    on closer inspection the inside lip that meets the rubber seal was scuffed up a tinny bit so was sticking ?
    with a few very very careful passes with the diamond file on the leatherman and even more care with edge of the knife sorted problem, and now it works fine again
    now you could put that down to user error as maybe i haven't been depressing the catch fully to open and close? (bare that in mind, if you get one?)
    HOWEVER ! at over 30 sovs i want my EDC to be able to put up with use and maybe a little abuse? (not that i expect it to be driven over without a scratch ! but put up with the rigours of life?) PYRO yes, but VAULT it aint? will it last the test of time? i doubt it? is it water tight no! does it look cool as ? of course it does! worth the dough probably not ? will it stop me getting more shiny stuff again ? NO !

    Does not fit Zippo butane torch models

    Posted by Keith on 7th May 2020

    I have a Zippo double torch butane insert - model Z8B19.

    The body of the lighter fits snugly into the case but the cap cannot close.

    The lighter torch housing is just slightly too tall for this case and fouls the roof of the cap, so it cannot close properly. I reckon the cap needs to be about 2mm taller for these types of Zippo inserts.

    Does NOT fit all Zippo butane models

    Posted by Safety37 on 6th May 2020

    Beware, the cap does not close with certain Zippo butane torch models. As such it renders the product useless as a protective case.

    I have the Zippo double torch butane model - Z8B19.

    The body of the lighter fits snugly into the case but the torch housing is too tall and therefore fouls the cap so it cannot close.

    Revised review

    Posted by Mark on 31st Jan 2020

    Made a review on this last year. I do agree more now with some of the other more negative comments. It really needs a flat base and also beware that if you light it at the wrong angle it's easy to set fire to it's self.

    Quite good really

    Posted by Mark on 8th Dec 2019

    It is quite pricey. Could do with a flat base as it's easy to knock over. All that being said it still works after a month after being filled. You still get a wind proof lighter that's hard to blow out. I have an Exotac titan lighter and side by side the Zippo insert is the last one to blow out.

    Great Concept, Poorly Made

    Posted by Sutt on 24th Oct 2019

    I thought it was time I wrote a review for this as I've been using mine for a year or so. The title says it all, really. Firstly, the rubber o-ring seemed to distort and the lid no longer flipped open. This was after a couple of months. I removed and cleaned it, not that it was dirty, and it made no difference. Then the lid stopped moving at all and I had to manually lift it up. I removed the lid to find on of the springs had failed as well. So now I have a cool looking' lighter cover but it's functionality has all but completely failed. It's a shame as it could be so good but...it's poor. The only good thing was the service I received from HH with their really fast delivery. Maybe Thyrum will release an updated version at some point!

    Good but expensive

    Posted by Alain on 23rd Dec 2018

    I mainly bought it to avoid the petrol to evaporate too quickly. It seem to do the job but for the price I was expecting better Quality.

    Acceptable, but not recommended.

    Posted by TAR on 30th Nov 2018

    This case is undeniably expensive for what it is and I agree with the other reviewer who suggested it not be relied upon in critical circumstances - It's waterproofness relies on a very primative unsecured seal and the case and lid would, in my opinion, break quite easily if subjected to even fairly mild rough handling.
    It is not immediately apparent, either, that a Zippo lighter will not fit in the case, only a Zippo insert. The case therefore replaces the Zippo metal body, thereby removing one layer of (metal) protection and substituting a less-then-rigid plastic shell in it's place. The spring and hinge do not inspire confidence and donot feel as though they will last.
    I bought this as a stocking-filler for my son, an enthusiastic kayaker, but in purely practical terms I'd suggest a resealable freezer bag would be at least as waterproof, allow the lighter to retain it's metal body and cost next to nothing.
    In defence of Heinne Haynes they have displayed reviews that point much of this out, so to seek a refund when I was warned seems unreasonable.

    meeeh

    Posted by gavin on 24th Sep 2018

    I've been using this out in the field, it has two springs and two pins which in my view will only fail over time ( pin at button to spring it open already coming out). The spring that's responsible for the latch to open doesn't fully open the lid away from the flame ( you can physically push it open another 1cm after it's popped open), so if using to light fires in wind etc the flame can scold and burn the plastic lid rendering it useless as the lid will then not meet to the rubber rand. What gets me twisted about this product is I've inserted brass zippo inners into it and it has a 2mm gap between the lighter and the plastic 'armour' casing at the corners inside, which acts as a nice vapour vent..., plus once you open it the latch gets in the way of you using the lighter/flint striker, not to the point of unusable but to have a product that makes something annoying to use, try striking your zippo in pure freezing cold with a plastic latch in the way..... in my opinion the casing should be made out of metal, have a pull off cap (with a tether to the main body) and do away with the pins and springs and annoying latch making this a much more viable 'armoured' lighter. Even right out the pack with the lid closed you can wiggle, lift and push the lid 1mm, this will only get weaker over time. This product may be slated as lighter armour but that doesn't mean its up for a proper battering - typical outdoor use. It's a product that needs more developing.
