Dual Arc Lighter

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

It’s a nice electric lighter that comes with LED light in 3 modes. Best for hiking camping and traveling because it’s easy to recharge and handy to use even in windy areas.


Tough Tesla Lighter 2.0

This product was recommended by Mark Wilcox from Camping Forge

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

I am a fan of the Survival Frog Tesla lighter. It uses an electric current to create a spark instead of a flame, like a Bic lighter. It’s water-proof and is charged by a USB cable.


Zippo Matte Pocket Lighters

This product was recommended by Brandon Wachs from Shark Eyes

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

In hiking, it’s quite essential to have the right equipment, and this includes a hiking lighter. My suggestion for the best hiking lighter is the Zippo Lighter. There’s something immensely satisfying about having a traditional lighter in your pocket when hiking. This lighter has a windproof design, which ensures you don’t lose it while hiking. It is also easy to use and fill up, unlike most lighters on the market today.


Tactic Ops Waterproof Lighter

This product was recommended by David Tooke from CampingFunZone

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

This lighter is specially designed for outdoors. With its waterproof design and multi-purpose use, this single tool is inevitable for your travel bag. One amazing thing about this lighter is that it can be recharged and no battery and gas are required. Also, it is durable than most of the lighters present in the market. You can get it in just $14.98.


UST Tekfire Charge Lighter

This product was recommended by Raul Mercado from Camping Helper

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

One of the big advantages of the UST Tekfire is the fact that there is no fuel source needed like butane or gas. All you have to do is push a button for the electric lighter to ignite and the paracord attached can act as para tinder that will easily catch fire and you will be able to light your gas stove or campfire with ease. It’s also windproof and doubles as a power bank you can plug in any small electronics to get a quick charge. It’s an easy all-in-one solution that works great in the outdoors.


Windmill Classic Stormproof All Weather Lighter

This product was recommended by Ahmed Mir from Sip Coffee House

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

This refillable butane gas with a fuel level window is possibly the only hiking lighter you will ever have to buy. Coming in high visibility blaze orange it’s easy to locate in your backpack or on the ground. It’s water-resistant with a rubber o-ring seal and its flame is pretty much wind resistant.


Tesla Coil Lighters Rechargeable Lighter

This product was recommended by Lindsey Maxwell from Where You Make It

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

This lighter is awesome. It lasts up to 300 uses and its rechargeable so I don’t have to worry about butane. The arc is great because it has awesome power but I don’t need to worry about a direct flame, especially when its windy. It’s hard to beat for the price. This lighter also isn’t affected at all by the freezing cold or by altitude at all which is a great plus.


UCO Stormproof Torch

This product was recommended by Lindsey Maxwell from Where You Make It

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

The best thing about this lighter is that its waterproof. I don’t need to worry about it not lighting if its gotten wet, or worse, its raining. This lighter will light over 700 times before needing to be refilled and its a great addition to any pack. It’s incredibly durable, and comes with a silicone cover to help protect the lighting element. The only qualm that I have with this lighter (and all fuel lighters) is that when temperatures dip down, they aren’t as reliable. Recommend.


Larruping Torch Lighter

This product was recommended by Lindsey Maxwell from Where You Make It

Best Hiking Lighter – Expert Recommendations

This is the most affordable lighter and one of my favorites. I don’t need to worry about the flame bending when I light it like a traditional lighter, and the 3 flame jet evenly distributes the heat. This lighter is great when its windy as I don’t need to worry about the flame getting blown out. This lighter claims to be stormproof, but I haven’t been able to use it in the wet yet.
