What do you think of this potential Strike Industries BIC Lighter sleeve/case from Strike Industries? They are trying to keep it under $10 MSRP each.

    I love the concept!
    A lighter is a sewers best friend beyond a snip.

    NO. Unless it’s to keep people like me from taking lighters from friends…in which case they switched to Scripto and other cheap lighters. BIC lighters fit perfectly in the hand and in the pocket…to the point my friends don’t let me use theirs.

    Upon seeing this news, Gov. Newsom, California governor, introduced legislation to ban the item. He was quoted as saying “clearly all Americans stand with me and we cannot allow assault lighters and BBQs in the great state of California.” When asked what was wrong with Americans lighting grills and candles he was heard mumbling “…for the children” and was spirited off to a fundraiser before he could elaborate. /sar or sarcasm

    I’ll take terrible ideas for $1,000, Alex.

    The concept doesn’t make any sense; the case makes the lighter substantially larger, and then also introduces an extra step – sliding the lighter upwards – that has to be performed prior to lighting. And the case makes the lighter look like a pistol magazine…

    The one aspect of the case that does make sense is the pocket clip.

    A form fitting, slim case that follows the external shape and ergonomics of the Bic lighter, but featuring an integral polymer pocket clip, would be much more interesting/ useful. And also cheaper to manufacture.

      More gaudy, useless, Chinese made trinkets from Strike industries.

      Yawn.

      There is a far superior product that has been around for a while; the Exotac Firesleeve.

      The Firesleeve is the only legitimate Bic lighter upgrade that I have ever used.

      It maintains a slim shape, it floats, it is water proof, it has dummy cord points, it comes in high visibility colors…and it is made in U.S.A.

        I was thinking the exact same thing. I’ve got Firesleeves spread throughout all my vehicles and gear.

    “Designed in California, made, uh, elsewhere in the world, but don’t ask, because we don’t like admitting that.” *

    * Not a direct quote from Strike but darn close.

    TSA will love this.

    OK…this will be in my pocket next to my switchblade knife that is actually a comb…

    “…found dead, after apparently mistaking a plastic novelty lighter case for a magazine, which was jammed deeply into magazine well well of his empty pistol.”

  12. Cy says:

    Haha, when I first looked at this I thought it was an insert for your handgrip. So you can store a lighter on your AR.
