Light in the Rain: Exotac titanLight
A waterproof lighter is, to our minds, a Good Thing, not least because it’s airtight. The recently releasted titanLIGHT from Exotac is just such a fire-starter and it was top pick in the lighter category in Issue 23 of OFFGRID Magazine.
Exotac is a small but widely recognized company hailing from Winder, Georgia (where they spell Bulldoggs with two Gs). They describe themselves as “engineers of extraordinary fire-starting tools, outdoor products and everyday carry accessories,” and we see no reason to dispute that.
Here’s how they describe the titanLight:
“[It is] a precision machined, ulta-durable waterproof lighter that uses lighter fluid as fuel. This lighter won’t leak and water is no match for it. The O-ring seals allow for a longer interval between lighter fluid refills. And as always, its construction quality is unrivaled and represents what Exotac has become known for. Made in the USA from aircraft grade aluminum, it is designed to provide reliable service for a lifetime.
The titanLIGHT uses patent pending air vents below the flame to reduce wind disturbance along with a flame guard that is designed to provide maximum protection against wind gusts. A small screw-off cap on the bottom of the lighter body is used to both refill with lighter fluid and to service the wick. The flame guard can also be removed without tools: Simply press the small brass pin through and pull off the flame guard to access the flint and spring.”
It will also set fire to shit.
