When the Kickstarter campaign for the Exotac fireSLEEVE was announced, I knew I had to participate. A waterproof case for the ubiquitous Bic lighter seemed like a no brainer. The Bic is dependable and can be found nearly anywhere, but the striker needs to be protected from moisture if you want it to work. So I plunked down my pledge on day one of the campaign and have been waiting eagerly for them to be completed ever since.
I’ve carried an Exotac nanoSTRIKER on my keychain for years and it has been great so I had no qualms about backing the company. Now that the product has finally arrived it is time to verify just how waterproof these little buggers are.
