Duct-tape has almost endless uses, and comes in handy much of the time...so does a lighter in a survival situation. Why not combine both? In the concept of resilient living it is important maximize usage of a combination of multiple items. Wrapping Every Day Carry (EDC) items, such as a lighter, with duct-tape makes use of this concept.

Here I am showing an example of just such a dynamic-duo. What you will need is below:

  • 3' - 6' of duct-tape, preferably florecent, glow-in-the-dark or other vibrant color
  • Lighter (Bic, Zippo, etc...)

This hack is inspired by information from Cody Lundin's books:

  • 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive by Cody Lundin and Russ Miller
  • When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes by Cody Lundin and Russell L. Miller
