At this year’s trade show, XIKAR will show off its newest lighter, the XIKAR Cirro, a single flame lighter designed to work up to 12,000 feet above sea level. It’s the second high altitude lighter the company has made, joining the Stratosphere lighter the company launched two years ago.



Cirro is offered in four finishes—G2, vintage bronze, black and silver—all priced at $49.99. The metal design is made for those interested in the high altitude capabilities, but wanting something a bit more upscale than the Stratosphere, which features a plastic shell. The action features a crosshatch design, which is also found on the company’s Enigma II lighters.

The 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show begins July 19 in Las Vegas, Nev.
