As I read through thread upon thread about what to have in a BOB/GHB or EDC car kit, it seems that everyone and their uncle has matches. Waterproof matches, strike anywhere matches, etc., and I just cant understand why. Sure, I have a box or 2 of the strike anywhere in my home, but I just can't see their value in a survival bag compared to a firesteel or a lighter. You light the match, the wind blows it out, now it's useless. Those trick birthday candles that you can't blow out might be a lot more useful. So tell me why you all seem to carry matches?
