The Zippo lighter has been a mainstay in many pockets since its invention in 1933. Its serviceable nature and ability to operate in harsh weather make it make it appropriate as both an emergency firestarter and a heirloom. With the PyroVault, THYRM has improved on this classic tool by increasing its effectiveness and robustness.
The PyroVault up-armors the classic Zippo by providing a ruggedized, sealed enclosure that remains slim enough to carry in a pocket. The texturized shell provides a sure grip in the harshest conditions, while a spring-loaded latch offers instantaneous access and supports one-handed operation. The seal of the PyroVault keeps out moisture and minimizes fuel evaporation, ensuring the lighter will be operational when you most need it. A low-profile clip allows the PyroVault to be attached to PALS or other webbing
The PyroVault is compatible with standard fluid and butane torch Zippo-style lighter inserts. Note that a few butane, non-torch inserts use a spring-loaded cam to open the fuel valve. Because the PyroVault uses its own high strength opening springs instead, these inserts are not compatible.
The PyroVault's o-ring seal provides a high level of protection from water, dust, and dirt; however, it is not dive-rated or suitable for prolonged submersion.
Zippo-style insert not included.
