Did this video help you?

ihikearound: Matt! This is great, so here I am another NYC cold night and I was searching for Juniper tree camp fire, no luck, then I search campfire desert southwest and Bam! I am not lying, I could smell the juniper ! that was great, think I am going to watch this a dozen more times!

KarelProject: damn! look at 2:20 at the background

Jesse Niou: @runescape44411 ACIIIIIDD TRIIIIPPPPPPPPPP WHOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Kanzee: Excellent instruction Vid. ☆★☆★Cheers : -)) Thanks

Waw Hiker: I've known since watching your very first video that you are remarkably talented, then while researching fire pistons for my present YT vids your fire piston video came up. Even more talented - "Matt does fire pistons too, way cool", I thought. It was turning-out to be another one of your great videos, and then the green screen effect kidded inI LMAO! Added to my Favorites and I'm telling JimG to watch this if he hasn't already!

shippen2010: great vids THX

gimepepe: I am a hiker. when it rains and you only have whet tinder (bark or semi dry grass) Piston: no fire Lighter: fire Also a glowing piece of coal is something different than a flame for igniting stuff Ok a piston will last longer but It is not like you have to spend two years alone in the wilderness. A lighter will give a flame for 2-3 months everyday. An other point is that it takes a skillet person to make a fire with a piston so what if you are injured.

Noel cortes: Did anyone read tue description he says he used a green screen

WeTheWeb: but lighter runs out of gas plus they get damp die o and they break

Zimplony: Did anyone see the tree materialise? O.O

leo are: red neck XD

Milan Karakas: WOW! Starting from 4:05 flame looks pretty fascinating. Very good camera and very good effects. BTW, thanks for your 'how to' guide.

The Southwest Backpacker: @runescape44411 I changed the backgrounds just for fun. Practicing chroma keying!

ascetic43: I can't argue that it worked, but it seems like a lot to carry around when a simple mag bar or steel would work just as well. Interesting though. How does it work? Friction? Cheers.

harrisbomber2: 0:36 <<<<<<<<,LOL <<<<< LOOK ON THE SKY.

wordsthatsticktoya: a good tool to have no doubt! you might as well just have a lighter or matches though. can one be made in a survival situation with native materials? that would be the video i would watch and learn from. Good video man.

19BRAM92: yeah but the are empty within an our. a firepiston not. and you can use straw as char cloth for example that you find in the bush

The Southwest Backpacker: @sweetivyevergreen Thanks for your comment. I filmed this about 6 miles outside of Rio Rancho, New Mexico on the outskirts of town. The magic in the background was done just for fun. The REAL image behind me was a pure BLUE sky. I selected that blue sky as the color to use for a technique called "chroma keying." When your local news channel shows the weather, the person waves his/her arms around at a map but really its just a blue or green screen behind him/her. Same effect here. Thanks!

The Southwest Backpacker: @Ultimatemxcn Thank you for watching and your comment!

Rich P: my bad i should have read the description first i live in rio rancho thought the landscape looked familiar, cool!!!!

jskdck: Cool

gnomehater63: it kind of like mine except not black

ateiviz: i was watching Bear Grylls for the craick and i seen him do this with some salvaged bits of pipe i didnt think it was possible to get it going in one pump but what doya know it worked...nice!

buckshot752: @GLowzx7r i'd have to say yes, but what I was thinking was this. Friction= Bow or hand drill, fire plow,fire saw or fire with bamboo. Chemical= glycerin and potassium manganate, matches,lighters,batterys and steel wool, flashlight bulbs. spark= Flint and steel, Ferrous Rod heat conveyance from the sun= magnifying glass, reflective cone from flash light or car head lamp. water baloon (condom) clear plastic wrap and water. Compression= Fire Piston the best thing is Knowledge

buckshot752: @knarfster you make more! just find something made from cotton. use chaga, milk weed or mullen. this kind of stuff is every where. you can make fire from wood (bow drill or hand drill) they way it was done for thousands of years before lighters were invented.

ZA1C3WOLF: no i know its real but it looks fake like trick photagraphy but i know its real

geckomage: hell yeah man, good solid video. i was lookin at those and really didnt know how they worked other than some form of compression xD thanks for clearing that up. think i might get one. i always have my charcloth on me but sometimes i loose my flint D: lol keep on campin, take care. peace :D

weerobot: Excellent instructional video TaileZ.

Dawson Neufeld: if your doing real camping where theres actually a risk of being stranded any reak camper would rather have a fire piston because they will last much much longer then any lighter. if your a fisherman who takes a motor boat and beer every where then a lighter is definitly the way to go.

The Southwest Backpacker: @LaneMaddox00 I used my video editor to change the sky on this video. The original video had a perfectly "BLUE" sky and I used the "chroma key" feature of my software to change it to some wilderness picture I took. This is the exact same effect that is used when a weather man on TV is showing the weather forcast. It's an attention getter for sure!!

MurphyisDaCaptain: Nice stuff im an eagle scout and i love this kinda stuff. haha i must say at 2:35 it gets a little sexual haha!

monzanoman: Way to cool, crazytailez and I have gone camping and have used the fire piston as a method of a camp fire while outdoors. The changing back ground is awesome! Nice video man!!!!!

ehsanpartovi: dude they sell lighters for a dollar lol

west11299: Good instructionvideo !

daniil paulo: Da freak was with da background

fred1234567100: wait did you see that tree go away and come back

etekballer14: nice fake back ground

baglel: what do you do if your in washington and every thing is wet? do you just die lol

gimepepe: no way, you can get a totally whet (Bic) lighter dry in under a minute. and with the right tinder you can start a hundred or more fires, even empty it will still spark (all tested) If your charcloth got whet it is end of story. a fire piston is a nice experiment (of how a diesel engine works) but no way a reliable source of fire making

MBPKyle: as for the lighter v. fire piston argument. both last just as long as thier fuel source out in the wild. for the lighter butane, fire piston charcloth. you are unable to obtain either in the wild. unless you know how to find cotton and farm it. for long term survival the best fire tool you could have is a knife. with that you can fashion wood into a bow drill and use that method for fire. you get string by digging up a root and cutting it off. so with a knife you have fire werever there is wood.

Cameron Smith: @buckshot752 Do matches and a lighter count?

The Southwest Backpacker: @Balgore8 Charcloth seems to work the best when using a fire piston, however, there are several natural tinders that can be used. Tinder Fungus or "Chaga" is the best natural tinder. You can also use the fluffy material from a dried Mullen stock. A dried Milkweed pod will also work. If you're real good and with practice, certain "punk" wood or certain decaying wood will also work but it needs to be at a certain rotting point for it to work. wildersol. com (no space) has great info on tinders

monsterthug1952: better check the sky behind you !!!!!!

Lee David: nice vid. thannks for the camping tip

IncrediKAD76: cool background effects. i was beginning to think my java had been laced LMAO

smalltownman73: There are other devices that can start a fire much easier and much cheaper than what this guy is showing.

Lee68Perry: Nice info, nice explained, nice done, nice playin' with the skies... nice video.

Ballisticbob517: looks like a pvc tube with a metal rod in it

The Southwest Backpacker: The original background of this video was blue. The sky was perfectly clear the day I filmed this demo. I used chroma key software to display some wilderness pics I had to the blue sky (as I picked the color blue for the chroma keying) and it turned out to be a cool video effect. Same kind of effect that weather reporters use on TV when reporting on the weather.

The Southwest Backpacker: @shippen2010 Thanks for watching!
