Introducing our remarkable Glass Magnifying Lens! 

Are you ready to harness the power of the sun? Our large 2-inch/50mm glass magnifying lens is the ultimate tool for starting fires using solar energy. With its double convex 6-power lens, this magnifying lens is as powerful as the lens found in the iconic Hudson Bay Tin, but with a larger size that makes solar fire starting even easier.

But that's not all! This high-quality glass magnifying lens is incredibly versatile. It can be used for reading small print on maps, compasses, or even as a backup to your reading glasses. With the same 6-power magnification as the smaller magnifying lens in the Hudson Bay Tobacco Box, this larger lens provides double the size and gathers more available light, allowing you to focus it more intensely. The result? Quick and efficient ignition of your tinder resource.

Crafted with precision and care by our friends at Cash Manufacturing Co in Wisconsin, USA, this magnifying lens is a testament to their commitment to quality. Whether you're a seasoned outdoors enthusiast, a bushcraft aficionado, or simply someone who values preparedness, this magnifying lens is an essential addition to your kit.

Imagine the thrill of starting a campfire with just the power of the sun. Picture yourself in an 18th-century setting, surrounded by the spirit of the Frontier and the Fur Trade. With our Glass Magnifying Lens, you can embrace the traditional methods of firecraft and experience the satisfaction of igniting charred tinder with ease.

Don't miss out on this incredible tool for survival, reenactment, or any outdoor adventure. Get your hands on our Glass Magnifying Lens today and discover the power of solar ignition.

Of the highest quality!

Ronald Brown

Great piece of kit for a contingency fire starting process via solar. Thanks GB2!

Robert Miller

This is better because it has two sides. I found this out on a training course. You get what you pay for even if you don't know. Thank you for the opportunity to have purchased the highest quality kit. It is a real minefield of lesser gear. It has been a blessing to have found your training and store. Making purchases online is hard but not if it's in the GB2 store.


Great magnifying lens, perfect size.


This is awesome!
This is my third order.
As things get more questionable I been making adjustments and this is one of them. Not only I have it in my bags also in my wife’s car and mine. An essential part of our emergency car bag. My recommendation if you going to order one get 3. You will start thinking of places where one of this should always be available…like you car!
