The MATCHCAP™ is a nearly indestructible waterproof match case for storing matches and other fire starting material. By integrating the red-phosphorus striker into the threaded area of the capsule, EXOTAC has created an innovative solution for having to pack separate match strikers. To ensure their match case was going to be the best out there, they added a concealed o-ring, durable square threads, a bottom strike-anywhere striker, and a high-end aesthetic 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.
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.
Caution: 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™.
EXOTAC put evolution on the fast track when they decided to perfect the MATCHCAP. The MATCHCAP XL is the culmination of countless trips into the woods and a few fire-related mishaps. They have doubled the capacity and increased the striking surface by 250%.
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.
For maximum match capacity, place a majority of the matches head up with a few head down.
