Amazing new UL firestarter
Gauze pads also work great, and I'm already carrying them. The wrapper also burns well. For emergency use that's all I need. For regular use, other stuff like this is better.

Dasani Dasani 1 Liter bottle
it is really light, lighter than a 1 L gatorade, but is weaker and has a small opening, making it messier to put in drink mix. Mine worked fine, but they have a shorter life than gatorade bottles. T...
