Couldn't relight due to a wet Bic.
Pipe was still dry.

I tried that one time at the cape.
The cherry fell out and melted a great big hole in my net. :(

This is when a good packing technique comes in handy. Once you've got that cap of ember on top of the bowl going, it takes a lot to shake it loose. I would jog with my pipe upside down but in inclement weather it works fine. I admit that I haven't employed it often but, when I have, I've had no problems aside from the rain.

After all, cocktail umbrellas are only made of paper. They won't keep the bowl dry for long in a downpour and the stem of the umbrella is just a toothpick made of tinder.

I haven't this in a long time but it's legit.

Seriously , it generally doesn't fall out . I have yet to have it fall out but i imagine certain blends are more prone to do so ... like say PS Cube
