We put evolution on the fast track when we decided to perfect the MATCHCAP. The MATCHCAP XL™ is the culmination of countless trips into the woods and a few fire-related mishaps. We doubled the capacity and increased the striking surface by 250%. This thing is serious!
The MATCHCAP XL™ isn’t limited to just matches. Using a Stormproof (2.9” long) match, the new design leaves 0.3” to spare for tinder storage. If using kitchen matches, nearly half of the MATCHCAP XL™ is available for storage. Use the extra space to store water purification tablets, tinder, medicine, fishing hooks, first aid kit, etc.
The inside of the MATCHCAP XL™ is larger at the bottom. Place the majority of your matches tip down with a few tip-up for maximum capacity. When using the phosphorus striker on the top of the MATCHCAP XL™ 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 XL™. Carry a variety of matches (stormproof, kitchen, strike-anywhere) as each one has a distinct advantage.
