Waterproof maches are generally more of a need when you’re camping than boating. But occasions arise when you need a match and in a voyaging boat, there certainly are times when conditions can get a little soggy, rendering regular matches useless.

So these may be the ultimate in waterproof matches. Called Stormproof Matches by maker Industrial Revolution, these matches are easy to light, have a 15-second burn time and have a longer length for added safety — they reportedly even stay lit underwater. The  kit contains 25 matches, three strikers and a waterproof container that weighs less than an ounce.
