    in this day and age most people carry lighters/matches..(i do)...
    but there are a few things that you should carry just in case

    a good thing to have in you kit is a few lengths of old car/bike inertube......as when you are in damp conditions this will help you start a good fire (as it burns long enough to dry out any kindling that may be damp ......

    SPARK KITS

    i also carry a flint striker (incase matches get wet or the lighter runs out of with this bit off kit and your knife and a bit off birch-bark you can easily start a fire.....

    starting a fire with a fire steel is 10 times more rewarding as well
