Because I'll Get Lost Eventually, I Need Fire

I like living. Living is my number one priority in life. Because of that I end up doing things like riding my snowboard off trails, into areas I've never been before. That's why stormproof matches are the best $6 I'll ever spend.

Sold by sports store REI, the matches are coated in a chemical that makes them waterproof and and windproof. Which is good news for someone that's gotten stuck in the woods before. It's no fun when you think you're going to freeze your ass off because you thought going off trail was a good idea. [REI via Uncrate]
