The tried and true Zippo Lighter is a time proven veteran of war and the wilderness.
It is only natural the good folks at TITAN Survival would partner with them for the ultimate fire starting combination.
I got a chance to check out the TITAN Survival SHROWD Camo Zippo Lighter set and this is how it performed.
TITAN Survival has been a solid choice for wilderness and outdoor survival gear for years. I had the pleasure or reviewing many of their solid gear items over those years and have found them all to be great performers. So what is the newest release from TITAN Survival? Well how about the TITAN Survival Camo Zippo lighter set?
Partnering with Zippo, TITAN Survival added a traditional Zippo sleeve to their product line up with their patented SHROWD Camo and logo on both sides, and then 2 inserts: a traditional Zippo Windproof Lighter insert, and a dual-head Butane Torch Lighter Insert for cigars. This sharp looking gift set for someone you know (well of course you also!) is actually a two lighter approach for fire starting.
Starting off for this review I must admit I am a bit biased with Zippo Lighters. You see I have a small collection and use them while out on my treks through forgotten woods. They are old friends that are always dependable. Will the new ones be able to keep up to the veterans? Let’s find out.
First off the TITAN Survival SHROWD Camo Zippo Lighter set sports both a traditional lighter fluid insert and a butane insert. This way, when either fuel is available you are ready to light it up.
The SHROWD Camo is quite impressive looking and is solidly applied to the lighter. This is no sticker haphazardly placed. Word of warning though: the camo works almost too well if you drop or misplace the lighter in the woods or a grassy spot. Otherwise, I love the color. Yes, I am quite the camo fanatic on occasion.
How well does it work? Well a night time light of the traditional lighter fluid insert is illustrated in the image below. Talk about a welcomed friend.
What about the double butane torch insert? Well it achieves an impressive double blue flame that can be easily adjusted by the screw on the bottom. I really like the adjustment height in the picture below.
A little fun with the higher adjustments achieved this monstrous flame. Yes, I would not use that much for safety and higher fuel consumption rates.
During my testing I have found the TITAN Survival SHROWD Camo Zippo Lighter set to be a great performer in the field. Fuel life on both inserts were quite long and the wind resistance is quite impressive. Am I surprised? Not in the smallest sense since it a Zippo product teamed up with the great folks at TITAN Survival. This certainly is a must have for any outdoors-person, survivalist or anyone else that needs a dependable fire lighter in any situation.
