      Purchased one at retail store, couldn't get to work, took to cigar shop, they couldn't get to work. Took back to Duluth Trading, they couldn't get to work. Gave me a new one. Same issue. Product is not worth your time.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Duluth Trading was great throughout the entire process. Very helpful, no questions. Great store! Reinforces me wanting to shop there.

                Comments about Turboflame Military:

                Just received this today (4-22-15), and I've already boxed it up to return. I opened this up, tried to remove the cap and the whole thing fell apart in my hand. Its made out of cheap plastic. The body seems to be made out of metal with a grippy coating but the rest is junk plastic. I can't imagine being out in the woods and relying on this lighter. You would be better off with a trusty Zippo. I wish I would have read the other reviews. I think I'll stick to just buying clothes from Duluth and buy my gadgets elsewhere. Bottom line this lighter is junk. NOT a rugged "military" lighter.

                I probably will use mostly in the garage; light other devices, heat electrical shrink wrap, etc.

                  I use the product for everyday use. Lights quickly and has not failed to light. Best to use Colibri Butane.

                      Bought 2, neither one worked. Followed all the instructions, including buying two cans of the high-quality Colibri butane as required by the manufacturer (this should really be highlighted in the product description). If you don't have the exact size flat-head screwdriver, you won't be able to adjust the flame. Only one would even try to fire, and then only burn for 1 second. Verified that butane was in the lighter by spraying that expensive stuff all over my hand testing the valve. Fortunately, Duluth is sending me a return authorization, but I have to pay their shipping fee, and I'm stuck with two cans of butane ($17) I don't need.

                            Purchased lighter for my son, he's military. Haven't been able to find butane to work with lighter. it would be nice if you would include in description the specific kind of butane for this particular item. We still haven't found any.
