We used this in the mountains above Dubois and on Elizabeth Ridge and had no problem getting wet wood to - eventually - burn. Fuzz sticks help too.

I have a question too.

What is the gray Klim suit that you are wearing?
It's the 2011 Traverse jacket and pant. Klim's mid level Gore-Tex. Next step up is the adventure suit for like two grand. Although, I have heard that Klim is filling the gaps a bit more for 2012. I am very very very happy with Klim. Super high quality stuff from Idaho. I'm pretty sure it's made in the USA.
