Quest for Fire: LifeLaces from Stone Mountain

If you’re like me, the best part of camping is building a fire. The quest for wood and tinder, building it up, and turning a small flame into a roaring fire. There’s no greater sense of accomplishment than getting a fire going, particularly if the weather is bad. But sometimes it can be almost impossible — your matches are wet, you’ve misplaced your lighter, or maybe you’re lost in the wilderness without any gear at all.

In times like these, it’s always good to have a backup plan. LifeLaces Survival Laces from Stone Mountain are the perfect way to always be prepared in nature.

I recently got a pair of LifeLaces to try out, and was very impressed. These paracord laces come tipped with Ferro rods and a striker plate, allowing you to start a fire anywhere.

The tips of each lace are 1-inch Ferro rods, perfect for igniting tinder in even the most extreme conditions. I tested them out in the rain and they worked just fine. With a little practice it’s easy to create a ton of sparks with each strike. These are not one-time use, either; each of the four Ferro rods can be used repeatedly and still function as your boot laces.

The laces themselves are made of paracord, with seven strands of nylon in each lace. Not only are the laces super strong and durable, they can also be used in a variety of survival situations — setting traps to catch a meal, building a shelter that won’t blow away in a storm, securing a bandage to a wound, or just tying your gear together for easier travel. In a pinch, you can even remove all the nylon strands to give you up to 28 feet of additional line from each lace.

These laces come with a striker plate, perfect for creating the maximum amount of sparks from each strike. One side of the striker is razor sharp, and you can use this to scrape away the black coating and expose the silver rod underneath. Either side can be used to make sparks, but I found that flipping it around to the blunt side worked the best. With each strike I was able to create a shower of sparks and I started a fire in no time.

If you know you’re going to need to start a fire, I recommend bringing your own kindling. My personal favorite is dryer lint stuffed into a plastic bag to keep it dry. Its super easy to ignite and produces a substantial amount of heat to get your fire going.

The best part about LifeLaces is, once you replace your old boot laces with them, you never have worry about starting a fire again.

The only downside I found was that unlike some survival laces on the market, LifeLaces do not contain additional accessories in the paracord. However, the Ferro rods are firmly secured and seem like they’re made to last. There’s also no annoying caps to fall off while you’re hiking.

Overall I really like LifeLaces from Stone Mountain and would recommend them to anyone who enjoys starting a good fire.
