I am sure that most know how good pill bottles work for match container, they are water proof and fairly durable. I have started to glue a dremel tool cut off wheel to the top of the cap to give me something to strike the matches on (only works with strike anywhere matches). I know that strike anywhere matches are supposed to be "strike anywhere", but when your hands are cold and the rocks are wet with snow, having a convenient striker makes things just a little nicer. Also, for those of you who use MRE's when you go camping or hiking, save the outer bags. They can be resealed with a regular food saver vacuum sealer. You can't vacuum seal them, but they will seal. They are very heavy duty bags to protect your stuff with. I have one with extra fire starting gear all sealed up and water tight. Just make sure you mark them well so you don't grab that bag instead of a full MRE if your in a hurry.
