I have onesomewhere. It disappeared about a year ago after a trip, so is probably in the bowels of a pack I have someplace. It wasor isa great lighter.
The Colibri I'm not at all familiar with. Nor did some research on it turn up much information. It's some sort of exotic lighter, that much I know. I'd be interested in getting some input on Colibri lighters, if anyone out there is familiar with them!
Anyway, I'd say the Windmill is fine, plus it's available from a wide range of places (the company Web site is: www.essentialgear.com). Still, I tend to be conservative on the subject of lighters and matches. I always carry one or two lighters (the Windmill, if I can ever find it, and an inexpensive disposable job), plus strike-anywhere matches in plastic zipper-top bags, plus matches in a little waterproof container. Why take chances?
