Description

A practical, pocket-sized accessory that makes fire-lighting a breeze, not a chore. Sturdy stainless steel construction for a lifetime of trouble-free fires.

The telescopic tube extends to 44.2cm (17.4”), allowing you to directly blow extra oxygen into the heart of the fire, turning even the most difficult-to-burn fuel into a stable fire within minutes.

It keeps you a safe and pleasant distance from the heat of the fire and helps keep nasty smoke out of your eyes!

When collapsed down it is only 9.2cm (3.6”) long, and it weighs a mere 25g (0.88oz), making it effortless to carry for camping, hiking, outdoor parties and barbecues. It has a place even in the most lightweight of hiking loads, and is an ideal accessory to pocket wood stoves.

The Spitfire Pocket Bellows is a simple yet highly effective tool that helps get your fire established quickly, and works perfectly for re-lighting a dying fire or embers.

Simple in operation; extend the bellows out to its full length of 44.2cm (17.4”), and with the larger diameter end in your mouth, point the other end into the heart of the fire and blow gently. This will direct additional air (containing oxygen) into the fire; an essential part of the ‘fire triangle’ which consists of Oxygen, Heat and Fuel.

With additional oxygen it is amazing how quickly a fire increases in intensity, even from a weak fire that would otherwise go out. No more struggling to get the fire going! Once you carry this tool you can impress friends by getting that campfire, fire pit or barbecue going first time, every time.

When not in use it can be instantly collapsed down to just 9.2cm (3.6”), so it can be carried in even the smallest of pockets, and at 25g (0.88oz) it will not be noticed when added to your camping or hiking gear.

Size: 92mm length (collapsed) x 16mm diameter. Weight: 25g.

    I ordered this at mid-day on a Wednesday and it arrived at 10.30 the next day, post free! The pocket bellows is well made, efficient and a bargain at this price. It also came with a complimentary mini chocolate Kendal mint cake. What’s not to like? I shall be a returning customer and recommend this to anyone who’ll listen. Excellent customer service and excellent product, I’m very pleased. Many thanks.

    I’ve been a fan of the Polymath Spitfire kits since I first tested them and confirmed how effective they are, due to the quality of the items included and the way the water resistance of each part means that you never need to worry about the box being waterproof, plus how comfortably portable the whole kit is. I also soon discovered how much better the pocket bellows are compared to the length of old radio antenna I was previously using; The extended tube gives you plenty of separation from the sparks and smoke of the fire as you rekindle it and allows accurate direction of plenty of air to dramatically enhance the embers to develop the flames.

    The one issue I did find came on an exceptionally cold trip in the highlands. In the early hours of the morning I’d removed a glove to retrieve the kit from my pack and as I pulled out the bellows tube the metal started to freeze to my fingers. Not wanting to rip the skin from my lips when I used the bellows to build up my fire, I wrapped an adhesive dressing from my first aid kit around the back end of the tube. That worked but it was tacky and when it later got wet it started to peel off. This new version with the rubber mouthpiece is so much better; more comfortable, clean and totally waterproof.

    Although I always have a Spitfire kit in my pocket when I’m in the wilds, I do occasionally practice fire making with traditional flint and steel and I use other fire igniters in the garden and sometimes need to enhance or rekindle the fire in either case, so I’ve bought a couple of these new versions. If you already have a favourite ferro rod or other fire starter in your fire kit but you don’t have a fire bellows, or like me you simply need more of them so you’re never without, then you won’t find a more effective model than these and nor will you find them at such an exceptionally good price.
