The Campfire Defender Keeps Your Fire Safe and Contained

Campfires are useful and fun. They keep us warm, cook our food, and give us light. But they can also be dangerous, and susceptible to the weather. That’s where the “Campfire Defender” comes in.

It’s a campfire management tool – essentially a fireproof tarp you stake down over your fire. And it allows you to control your fire in ways you couldn’t before.

So let’s say you’ve had a great evening campfire, but now it’s time for bed, and to be responsible you need to douse your campfire. This leaves you with two problems in the morning. One, you need to restart your fire, and two, your fire pit is still wet from the night before. The campfire defender solves both of these problems, safely. Instead of dousing your fire, you cover it securely. The vents in the blanket allow the fire to get air but don’t allow any sparks to escape.

In the morning, you’ll have a much easier time getting your fire going again from the dry coals. Just take off the tarp, add some more fuel to your coals, and you’ll have a fire in no time.

It’s also a great tool for protecting your fire from the rain, wind, or snow. Most campfires will probably withstand a light drizzle, but be extinguished by a downpour. This obviously will put a damper on your attempts to cook on that fire. The campfire defender solves this problem. It also can help you control dangerous flying embers.

It’s also got the nice feature of being a heat reflector that can be used to deflect the heat from small fires.
