It sucks to set up camp after hiking or riding all day only to get to a campsite with absent or damp kindling hindering your ability to cook and stay warm. Before packing up for the day, fill one of these water repellent waxed canvas pouches with your fire starter of choice and have it ready to go as soon as you roll into camp.
These come to you packed with fatwood. Fatwood is naturally impregnated with tree resin and is super flammable, making for a perfect fire starter. You only need a small amount to catch a spark - a pouch full of it was enough for six weeks of fires on our round the country trip. Once you're out, there are tons of DIY fire starting home recipe alternatives to get you going, vaseline soaked cotton balls, drier lint, dried grass, just to name a few.
