Tinder Pouch

One of the small items of equipment i have on me all the time when I'm out and about, is a small tinder pouch, the main reason being, you never know when you are going find a load of tinder that can be saved for future use, be it Clematis fluff, Tree Bark or dry grass, if you see it, collect it, because you can guarantee, when you really need some dry tinder, you wont be able to find any.

The pouch pictured is a rubberised tobacco pouch that i bought on EBay years ago and it holds a good amount of tinder and being rubberised, it also keeps out moisture, although it is not waterproof, so any moisture in your tinder can escape.  If i forget my tinder pouch then i always have a backup with me in the form of at least a couple of plastic bags, they are not as durable as the pouch pictured, but still work a treat, you just have to be a little more careful with them.
