From sea to shining sea the United States has so many great places to camp in. I think everyone in the
country has been camping at least once. The camping product industry in America is very large and creates
a large amount of revenue. Over the last few decades well known American brands began making their
products overseas and greatly reduced the amount of American jobs associated with the industry.

Many people believe they are buying an American made item because of the iconic brand names we are all
familiar with, however almost none of the big names make anything in the US any longer. That is where  
this site comes into play, we have put together a list of companies making camping gear right here at home.
The companies on these pages know how important American jobs are, many bypass the potential for
higher profits to keep production in the USA creating jobs.

RussTick Natural Woods Firestarters are easy to pack and carry for a camping excursion. Each firestarter
is carefully handcrafted and created from a bundle of assorted twigs tied with jute twine and then wrapped
with a piece of salvaged White or Yellow Birch bark. Hemp is then wound around the bundle to hold the
firestarter securely together. The end of the twig bundles are dipped in a complex variety of natural resins
that dry shiny and hard and help waterproof the wood. This combination of salvaged birch bark and natural
resin combines to create a quick-catching fire propellant. Because of the waterproofing resin, RussTick
Natural Woods firestarters can even be lit when damp, making them perfect for lighting fires in your
outdoor fire pit. RussTick Natural Woods firestarters are ALL natural and environmentally friendly. There
are no harsh odors, unnatural chemicals, or airborne toxins…only safe, clean, breathable air.
