Made out of gunmetal gray anodized lightweight aircraft grade 6061 aluminum construction, the MATCHCAP is a nearly indestructible waterproof match case for storing matches and other fire starting material. It is the smaller version of the EXOTAC MATCHCAP XL, also available in gunmetal gray. By integrating the red-phosphorus striker into the threaded area of the capsule, an innovative solution for having to pack separate match strikers was created. To ensure the match case was going to be the best out there, a concealed o-ring, durable square threads and a bottom strike-anywhere striker was added to bring it all together.
The MATCHCAP can carry all sizes of matches from the standard kitchen strike-on-the-box to NATO lifeboat matches and even the extended length stormproof 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.

Do not overfill the MATCHCAP. Leave approximately ¼ of the volume empty. When using the phosphorus striker on the top of the MATCHCAP it is advisable to strike from the top (opening) towards the o-ring. This will prevent any stray sparks from entering the inside of the MATCHCAP.
The inside of the MATCHCAP is larger at the bottom. Place the majority of your matches tip down with a few tip-up for maximum capacity.
