    Exotac products are typically top notch. Nothing new there. The candles are fine. Why I took the time to post this review is to recognize GBG for the outstanding customer service they provide. First, they don’t do any price gouging on products sold cheaper on the manufacturer websites for the “pleasure” of buying from a 2nd/3rd party vendor in exchange for “helping out” your favorite YouTube personality. Respect & kudos for that bit of integrity that seems to be an increasingly foreign concept to most in these strange times. Second, GBG staff has a fast and responsive system set up that works virtually flawlessly even for a measly candle purchase. Item shipped very quickly and I was kept in the loop every step of the way. Item was packaged copiously and considerately. A+ all the way around. Buy from ol’ gray beard with confidence and rest assured you’ll get a great price and customer service reminiscent of a bygone era. Thank you for your continued service, GBG!

    Just popped a bunch three of these in each of my kits. They are tiny take no space, well priced, immediate fire (you don’t have to gather tinder or anything) they last 4 hours each, you can repurpose the tin when the candle is used. It also can double as lip balm, hand salve, cordage waxing, spot, short term waxing on canvas, and carbon steel knife protectant, Bic lighter ressource saver (light the candle then use it instead of the lighter thereby conserving your resources), tool greaser, chat cloth tin, storage tin for anything small, and I’m sure many more uses. Oh I forgot emergency candles at home! This is a majorly useful multi purpose kit addition. buy a bunch here to support a small business!

    I purchased these when I purchased the mini inferno kit, fatwood shavings, and Exotac Firesleeve. I did a field test for all of these products and they all work great!
