    yah, my kitchen stove works really well! LOL... seriously, in my pack, I carry a firestarter, books of matches, and a BIC lighter as well as a couple of small pieces of rope, some very thin paper, and a 35mm container of dryer lint... the whole thing (I keep them in a zip-lock baggy) probably doesn't weigh more than 6 oz or sooo... and most of the weight of that comes from the lighter, and the film container.

    You'd be suprised at how much you can fit in a small space. Here's one of my fire starting kits.

    Sarge, from your photo, I saw some candles; good point... I have that in my kit, also. Except mine is a custom made candle in a watertight tin; in a pinch, it can be used as a heater, a firestarter, even as a small stove... and it only weighs about 8-10 oz. I've also read about where you can use those trick birthday candles that can't be blown out. You light the candle, then you use the candle to start your fire. I also have a magnifying glass (salvaged from a busted up pair of binoculars).

    i keep a bag of old cat-tail fluff in my pack. that and 151 [there's bound to be plenty on any decent outing] make for a sure fire method.
