Survival Experts Agree to Bring your BIC

  • "Don't settle for the cheap imitations; get a real BIC," says
    Dave Canterbury, in his book Bushcraft 101: A field Guide
    to the art of wilderness survival pictured at the bottom
    right of the page. He suggests getting a BIC in orange, so
    that it's easy to spot in your gear.

  • "Always carry a lighter," says Mykel Hawke, Captain, U.S
    Army Special Forces, star of Man, Woman, Wild on the
    Discovery Channel, and author of Hawke's Speical Forces
    Survival Handbook (the Portable Guide to Getting out
    Alive), says as it's the easiest way to start a fire.

  • From an anonymous survivor of the Bosnia Civil War. "A
    generator is good, but 1000 Bic lighters are better. A
    generator will attract attention if there's any trouble, but
    1000 lighters are compact, cheap and can always be
    traded."
