I don’t smoke or do anything that really requires a lighter on a day to day basis, but I do go camping, and trying to light stoves with matches when the wind is blowing is an absolute pain. So after seeing my friend’s Zippo I decided to purchase one of my own.
It’s not broke — don’t fix it.

This lighter is the time-tested fluid lighter that has been used for the last half cenruty.
Well worth the money

My only concern before ordering this Zippo was how well the coat of flat black was put on. I didn’t know if it would start chipping or once scratched etc look the look. I’m happy to report that I’ve had this lighter about a couple of months now and in no way am I babying it.. and not only has the flat black not chipped there isn’t even a hint of a scratch on it. Leave it to ZIPPO to create yet another fine product. Well worth the money for a simple yet sharp looking lighter! (also the fact that its a zippo it goes without say that it works flawless too).
it’s really easy to find in the undergrowth

Finally! I had always wished someone made a little metal rectangle that flipped open and let you spin a piece of metal against a piece of sparkle stuff and make fire! Ugg and me have always had a hard time keeping the embers lit in the bag of bear fat and wrapped with birch bark camp site to camp site while we were on our 4 month long hunting/gathering trips. This is way easier. Plus it makes a very pleasing sound when you open it. Oh and it’s pink so when you drop it, it’s really easy to find in the undergrowth.
Zippo’s always good

I loved the look of this solid orange one soon as I spotted it, and I bought it right away, thinking how much I’ll save in not having to buy a Bic every week. The only weak part of a Zippo that can go bad is the cover hinge. Long as that’s okay, fluid won’t evaporate. So far, so good, and I got a case for it, which can help with not screwing up that hinge–when the lighter gets stuck in one’s overstuffed pocket. Course just dropping a Zippo can result in that hinge bending so that cover isn’t straight or tight.
Works perfectly, Low reviews don’t may not understand zippos.

Those giving this product bad reviews probably don’t understand the nature of a zippo lighter. I’ve seen many claim they received a defective lighter because it won’t light. Zippos ship without fuel, and you must buy fuel separately or already own fuel. They recommend you buy official zippo fluid, but I’ve found that coleman fuel works just the same. Another thing people seem to complain about is the fact that it leaks and loses fuel. Zippos do this naturally do to how they function. The fuel evaporates over time. The longest I’ve seen a zippo go is about two weeks before fully evaporating even without use. If they mean actual lighter fluid leaking, this is caused by overfilling the lighter with fluid. I’ve done it a few times so I know that’s the cause of it.

I purchased this zippo about 3 months ago just for fun. I got it mainly for my military job where matte black is standard regulation but also use it for camping, hiking, and everything else in my daily life (I do not smoke). You can’t really go wrong for $15 especially when you have to pay $30+ in most other places.
Great Zippo Quality, Cool Color

Like others have mentioned, the color of the actual lighter is much closer to Olive Drab (Army Green) than the darker hue pictured. Though, if you go on the Zippo website the color name “Green Matte” looks like the photo here. Someone definitely needs to re-shoot these to get a more accurate picture up. That being said, I was looking for Olive Drab, so this was a bonus for myself.
Great camp lighter–windproof, reliable (needs mod to save fuel)

I bought the Zippo Orange Matte Lighter for lighting fires and stoves when I’m out hiking/camping. The oil-fed windproof Zippo flame is ideal for that purpose because it stays lit even in fairly strong breezes, produces a very tall flame (the flame is about 2″ tall), and can be held at fairly steep angles to reach awkward lighting positions without extinguishing itself or burning your fingers. Best of all, you don’t have to hold down a button to keep the flame alive as you do with most other lighters (Bic, butane, etc.). In a pinch, you can also use it as an effective candle.
Brilliantly simple design since 1932 – it just works

I’m a nonsmoker and this is my first zippo purchase (that almost sounds like an AA confession). I grew up around smokers who had Zippo lighters and the smell of the fluid is nostalgic to me. I was surprised at how simple and low tech the insert was (I suppose it was the pinnacle of technology when they were originally rolled out). When I saw that the fuel chamber was basically soaked cotton I said “WOW – REALLY?!” HOWEVER – this is a great example of a simple design that just works. Why change it? It’s darn cool.
