|Vector Urbano Triple Torch Lighter Review|
Out of the box, the first thing I noticed was it's nice heavy weight. CLR likes a heavy lighter. Typically, a direct correlation of minimal plastic used for external parts. Vector packed the Urbano full of most features one would want. There are a few areas I would change to make it the ultimate lighter. I will get back to this is in a moment. Urbano has a fuel gauge window, a must when burning triple jets. Vector also integrated an 8 millimeter cigar punch located on the bottom of the lighter. A CLR favorite that is lacking from the Urbano is a single action lid. Meaning when you depress the thumb pusher the lid does not automatically flip open. Once the lid is flipped open there is a small mirror on the underside, you can see if your cigar is fully lit during initial lighting.
The lighter did get rather hot during short usage. Admittedly, it is hard to burn three scorching hot flames without the lighter getting hot (not counting table top lighters). The wind resistant torch is very strong and fired up without any misses. The bottom of the Urbano has the small fuel adjuster, needing something like a small screw driver. Not a CLR favorite, much prefer a large adjustment wheel.
The Vector Urbano comes in at an excellent price point, retailing for $30. Of course you can usually find it for less. Making the Urbano one of the best values for the money reviewed to date on CLR. Lastly, to top off this great value, Vector backs this lighter with a no proof of purchase lifetime warranty!
