SURPRISE, AZ (November 22, 2016) – Campfire Defender will certainly attract attention as a new product and as a new product category at the Winter Market Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, UT, January 10-12, 2017, Booth # BR711.

This innovative product is designed to reduce or eliminate campsite fire hazards by preventing hot embers from escaping the fire pit.  In addition, the fire pit will remain dry from rain or snow.  The Campfire Defender allows users to protect and safely maintain campfire coals overnight with the convenience of hot coals to easily stoke a fire again in the morning. The Campfire Defender can also aid in extinguishing a campfire without using excessive gallons of water and dirt.

Although the Campfire Defender can be used on any fire in an emergency, it is recommended to use the cover on fires with flames that are less than six inches tall. The Campfire Defender’s built in safety vent regulates and adjusts the airflow to control the oxygen of the fire which can prolong the life of the coals up to eight hours. The Campfire Defender can then be carefully removed and the fire is easily rekindled. Detailed directions are provided along with gloves and a convenient carry bag.

The Campfire Defender cover is made of a high tech fabric that can withstand extreme temperatures up to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. This military-grade material is used to stop temperature transfer in nuclear reactors and nose cones of ballistic missiles. Average campfires can reach up to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit which falls far below the melting point of the Campfire Defender.

“We’re excited to exhibit at the OR Show and be part of the industry. We’d love to show you what we’re doing. We combined our knowledge and passion for the outdoors, science and military-grade materials to make the campfire experience more convenient, safe and fun,” explained Fireside Industries President Mark Wolf. “Once we validated the concept we spent almost three years perfecting prototypes with rigorously testing the product in labs and in the field.”

The Campfire Defender kit includes:

  • 68”x 60” Campfire Defender
  • Fire Stake (2 piece)
  • Utility Gloves
  • 8 – Glow in the Dark Aluminum Tent Stakes
  • LED Flashlight
  • Canvas Carrying Bag

Campfire Defender is available now for $249.95 at with new retail locations expanding availability across North America.
