With this lighter, you'll have a friend in high places.
The evolution of Xikar’s Stratosphere lighter is here. Normal butane lighters tend to have performance issues at altitude, which presents a real challenge if you’re looking to enjoy a smoke on a summit. Well, we're happy to report that the engineers at Xikar have improved upon the original Stratosphere lighter.
Xikar Stratosphere II is a water-resistant and high altitude lighter that is up to any task you may require of it. Planning a leisurely promenade to Everest's peak with a smoke to celebrate? Xikar’s got your back. Want to explore the watery depths and light one up on the deck of the Titanic…well you get the point. This lighter can pass most everyday tests and will reliably light your cigar time and time again. Whether you plan on lighting one up in the wind and rain, at high altitude, or sea level, the Xikar Stratosphere II is the only rugged, dependable, lighter that won’t fail. And this special Diesel Edition comes with the Diesel logo emblazoned on the side, so you don't only get great performance, you get it in style.
