A ferrocerium (ferro) rod and striker are used for fire starting when other options aren't available or when there's moisture. In the outdoors, having a fire super important. The sooner you can get warm or cook food the better.
This rod/striker combo are waterproof & weatherproof, fits all weather, works in any weather condition. The longer rod makes it so much more effective.
Getting a fire started in the outdoors is so important. A ferro rod and striker produce intensely hot sparks that can light any dry tinder on fire.

We're not a fan of magnesium bars because you have to scrape them and dull a tool. Besides, the shavings blow away or fall on the ground and you have to start over.

The bright spark can be used as an emergency signal or to deter attackers.
