I actually just camped down south of Mammoth Lakes, California and we had winds gusting up to almost 80 miles per hour on our final day.
In that kind of wind, the soft flame produced by your classic BIC lighter just isn’t going to cut it. That’s why we recommend a windproof lighter that can light tinder with a single click.
