This is absolutely the best lighter I have ever owned. I have had numerous other lighters that I take hiking, backpacking and hunting but this lighter has never failed me. They will light in horrendous windstorms and with one filling last a long time. The lifetime warranty isn't too bad either. If I were to recommend a lighter to take backpacking or hunting to be used as one of the basic tools or survival I would recommend no other.
Below 10,000 feet it seemed to work fine, but I had trouble with the lighter at higher altitudes. It also stopped working after a few years but Windmill fixed it for free.
I am pleased with this lighter, I fill it every other week and never fear running out of fuel. It seems tough and I recommend it.
