I was a bic fan forever and the problem with that is that all my friends are also so I would never fail loose my lighter in the crowd. These are as good as a bic but is a tad slimmer so it fits well in your pocket. They are also super bright colored so you can spot your lighter in a crowd.
I have been a bic guy, they are simple and always work. I did get sick of people stealing them from me all the time though, so I figured I'd try a different brand. These had pretty good reviews so I took a shot on them. First impressions: WTF? Skinny and the first one didn't even work!
A few days later: I love these things. After the one not working I've tried about 20 just to test and they all worked great. I have started to really enjoy the thin feeling vs bics and now the leftover bics I have feel unwieldy and over-sized. I have never seen anyone else with these, I had a party with about 15 smokers last weekend and none of them had ever even heard of them. I gave a few out to people in need, but no one could claim "no I have an orange lighter too" and I kept all my lighters. I am now a cricket man, and I encourage others to give them a shot.
I needed these for a fireplace lighter that is about 18 years old and needed a cricket or something thin like cricket. Unfortunately these are flint type that you have to pull the wheel down as you light it, can't do that in my long lighter...bummer. it does fit in the space tho.
