Fat Rope Stick – The Ultimate Fire Tinder

Fat Rope Stick premium fire starter manufactured by PROCAMPTEK (formerly Production Hangar 51) is made from a pure cotton material that is fully infused with wax. The specially braided cotton breaks into thousands of microfibers when rubbed together in your hands. These processed microfibers are capable of catching a spark even when wet or in windy conditions.

✓ Non Toxic.

✓ Weatherproof.

✓ Cut what you need. Save the rest for later.

✓ No evaporation. Fat Rope Stick maintains performance even partially used.

Procamptek reports that their unique manufacturing process removes water contained in the cotton fibers at the micron level. This seemingly advanced process ensures a fully dried material that is ready to take a spark in the harshest conditions. Due to the complex nature of Fat Rope Stick, each piece has to be produced by hand. It has quickly become regarded as the best non-generic, specialized fire starter in the world.

Emergency Kit Requires Reliability

Reliability is critical for any item used in an emergency kit. As the need arises is never the time to be testing gear and praying for the best. Fat Rope Stick has shown to be a very reliable tinder source in extreme situations and to maintain its reliability through many uses until the product is depleted.

Each stick is infused with PROCAMPTEK’s proprietary “FOG-H77A high gasification formula.”  According to the manufacturer, this formula is what allows the cotton fibers to become highly ignitable and resistant to both wind and water when lit. The wax infused fibers extend the burn time of the tinder, which allows a greater chance of getting larger wood fuel to burn. Optimal use of Fat Rope requires proper preparation, beforehand, with kindling and larger fuel sources ready to go and grow your flame.

With fuel at the ready, the effectiveness of Fat Rope is seen in its reliability.  It easily takes a spark in extreme weather and provides the high heat output and long burn time that increases your success for fire in stressful emergency situations.  One stick also lasts a long time. A single stick is capable of providing tinder for many fires.

How to Use Fat Rope Stick

Fat Rope Stick is expertly packaged for portability and for use in various kits, bags and storage options. When you are ready to get a fire going, gather your twigs, kindling and other fuel then get your Fat Rope and remove and discard some of the orange outer packaging. With a knife or saw, cut through the black cover into the rope at one end as if you were making shavings on a stick. Take the small pile of the cotton fibers and roll the pile around in your hands to break apart and fluff up the cotton. Then place your Fat Rope tinder fibers on a dry base and ignite with your available sparking apparatus. Once lit, add twigs and small kindling. Gradually work up to larger fuel sources and enjoy your fire.

Another way to use your Fat Rope is to prepare it in advance. Simply push the rope out of the paper tube and untwist the rope into individual strands. You can then precut rope into your preferred sizes and add to your various kits. This is my preferred way to use this product.
