The only problem I have had with windproof/weatherproof matches is that they have a relatively short shelf life - shorter if you live somewhere humid (vac sealing probably helps this).
Short story about lighters: I saw one of those fancy windproof, waterproof lighters and had to have one. $50 later I hiked into the woods for an overnighter with the family and left all other fire-starting implements at home cuz I have this new fancy lighter that works under any condition. We were probably at 10,000' or so and freezing our butts off (early Spring) and I was going to light the stove to make dinner and then get a campfire going...nothing. When I got back to civilization I looked it up found out they are not recommended above about 9,000' and you know what lights at every altitude up to about 15,000'?

I just added some Pyro putty to my pack, I’ve done a couple small campfires with it and really like it so far. Other than that new addition, I carry a lighter wrapped in duct tape, old dry birch bark, a ferro rod and some waterproof matches. Oh, and some Vaseline cotton balls
