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.
Extra match strikers
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™.
