Weather can quickly take control of your campfire. From a gust of wind sending embers flying, to rain extinguishing your fire before you're ready. Weather can be a challenge for even the most experienced outdoors men. This unpredictability of weather and the unforgiving nature of fire can lead to serious safety concerns. Traditionally, the only tools we had to manage our fires was a bucket of water and a shovel; neither of which are much help in a inclement weather.
As human-caused wild fires continue to destroy millions of acres of land in the United States alone, we knew something had to be done. The biggest issue we face is that many campers do not realize that it can take over 5 gallons of water to properly extinguish an in-ground campfire. On a four-night trip that could mean over 20 gallons of water spent just on your fire! Realistically, very few choose to carry this much water with them, yet all of us know the dangers this reality can cause.
