THYRM, maker of clever water-proof containers like the CellVault, has turned their attention to everyone’s favorite lighter. Their new PyroVault is a replacement shell for Zippo (and compatible inserts) that takes the beloved flint and striker butane lighters to the next level.
The polymer PyroVault is o-ring sealed. This keeps water out and butane in. Zippo lighters tend to let all their butane evaporate in about 1-2 weeks but the PyroVault should slow the process of evaporation, making the lighter more likely to be ready when you need it. The cap is spring loaded so it immediately gets out of the way at the push of a button. THYRM also added texture to make the PyroVault easier to strike in nasty conditions and a MOLLE/PALS clip that allows you to keep your lighter handy.
If you like the reliability of the venerable, USA made, flint and striker Zippo insert but hate how it loses fluid, this could be the lighter armor you have been waiting for. Check out the PyroVault at THYRM.com.
Cool, but Zippos do not use butane!
