Highly Durable Hiking LighterI picked this up on a whim in Bright Orange (not available at Moosejaw that I know of). It's a bit long for a lighter but it stores a TON of fluid because of it. The flame is extremely wind resistant. After buying it I tested it by leaning out of the window of my roommates car and lighting a cig at 70 mph and with a little aim it worked like magic. Durable, water resistant case is great and I personally love the bright orange which makes it easy to find when dropped in the dark. Bottom line if you are a smoker while backpacking or you are lazy about starting fires this is a great lighter for on the trail.

Can't use it, can't send it backI ordered this based on the other review, and on previous years of experience with the original Windmill lighter - the clear one, that looks like a "real" (i.e., Zippo) lighter. The original Windmill is still going strong after 10 years, and is a blowtorch.,,,,This thing, on the other hand, will not light. I opened it, filled it with fresh fuel, but it simply refuses to ignite. I did get it to spark, once, but it sputtered out after a second.,,,,The best part: postal regs and UPS rules won't accept it for shipping, since it's full of fuel. Can't burn it dry. So, can't return it unless I drive to Michigan.

A little bulky and bigNice lighter for lighting cigars but a little to heavy and bulky to take backpacking with me.
