Start a Campfire in a Gale with a Clipper Wind Resistant Lighter

Lighting campfires and grills in windy conditions can be nearly impossible, if you’re a fan of the outdoors, you need a lighter that stays lit in a gale. But what kind of lighter is right for you, and what are the features you should look for in a wind-resistant lighter? In this article, we’ll take a look at why Clipper lighters are ideal for anyone trying to start a fire outdoors.

Say No to the Disposable Utility Lighter

Disposable lighters significantly contribute to plastic waste, so refillable lighters are the way to go if you want to cut down on plastic waste. Not only can you refill the gas insight a Clipper lighter, but you can also replace the flint. In fact, our reusable lighters can practically last an entire lifetime.
