For me it has too much stuff going on for the woods. Maybe it would be good for a key chain edc. This package at 2-1/2"-3" long by 1/4" with room for a thumbnail size piece of char cloth or PJCB squeezed in...nice. Having the integral striker is great. The capsule doesn't seem to give anything back other than appearance. Now if the firesteel was narrower allowing tinder and the capsule was ground out of a diamond rod for touching up a blade it would have more going for it.
