Oxygen is nature's gasoline and the key to wet weather fire starting.

This lightweight, collapsible fire bellowing tool compresses and focuses oxygen directly into the heart of a fire.

The byproduct of this extra oxygen is extra heat, which is the key to starting a fire with soaking wet fuels in wet conditions.


Features and Details:

• Helps start fires with wet or dry wood

• Suitable for indoor and outdoor use

• Collapses to 3.5"L

• Extends to 20"L

• Weight: 0.8 oz.


Still not convinced?

Watch the video

and waste a little more time; at this point, what does it matter?
