  • Not Totally windproof But still good

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Built quality is better than the cheaper ones you find at dx sites. You can angle the head to a certain extent, maybe 25-35 degrees. has a cap snap.

    Cons:

    windproof isnt a correct word. Although it has slightly better protection against the wind, it is not 100% windproof. The cap with the cheap metal link is really annoying as it dangles and can get in the way where you are trying to light up, several times i had to hold it with my finger just to prevent this issue. This product is alot bulkier than other butane lighters.

    OtherThoughts:

    would have been better if the cap was "automatic" meaning it will open if you press down on the button to light up, then close back up after use.

    Bottomline:

    still worth the $$$ and quality is better than most $1-3 dollar butane lighters on dx. GET 1 if you have the cash to blow and leave it in your car or backpack for survival situation
