I don't smoke, but I always have a lighter in my car or on me, just in case. I've never had a problem with the cheap bic ones from the gas stations, but I did break a 20 and got a real nice one. It wasn't the zippo brand, but it was that style..but the windproof one (not really sure of the actual name) and it was really awesome. Unfortunately, i used up all the fluid playing with it, and i haven't bothered gettin a refill yet.
im a zippo man always have been..Just make sure you keep er full and keep a spare flint in the bottom.worth the money mine was run over by multiple cars in city traffic..a little bent but still works!
yeah i can vouch for zippo'* toughness lol. my dad has a few... one in particular i shouldnt have been playing with as a kid, it was his zippo with his initals he got as a wedding present.. i may or maynot have had it in my pocket on the back of his harley. we hit a bump and it rolled down the highway at 70 lol. scratched it all to hell but it works lol. needless to say he was pissed as all hell i even touched it lol
lol.... i think im sold on the zippo. i figure if i buy a pack of cigs every 2 days, and about every other time i hav to buy another crappy 0.99 lighter ill have my zippo paid for in a little over a month lol
well considering ive got a harley banner on my windshield a harley wallet and a harley hat im wearing almost all the time i figure one of these will go well with all that and the biker tshirts i always wear lol
