They're pretty cheesy and usually cheap. But all they need to do is work once and your butt is saved. They won't last forever (like any ferro rod won't), but for an emergency kit, a $4 firestarter is a good investment.I've never heard of the Endless Match.
I always learn from you.
Weight rating of 350? You got to be pushing that. I note you said "when I sat up this morning". So most of your weight (however much that is) was concentrated on one point of the cot, essentially through your backside. I could see that ripping a seam. Sucks though. They don't really make them for heavy people, which is funny, as it is usually heavy people (people who would have more trouble getting up from the ground) that want camping cots. Maybe you could attach some webbing straps at key stress-points of the cot to prevent all the weight from being born by the seams in those areas?
