Do not leave home without your Fresnel and and your Survival Kit

Product Description:

The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter is a great back up Fire Starter and will fit practically anywhere. It is small, flat, light and cheap. Some practice is required and of course, one needs a sunny day for it to work. We do not recommend the Fresnel Lens as a primary Fire Starting Tool, but as an addition to an already supplied Survival Kit.
 
The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter is more commonly known as a Credit Card Magnifier. However, our version has 4 power magnification, much more than the 2X or 3X of standard credit card magnifiers.
 
The Fresnel Lens has been used for years in various applications, most notably the Light House Lens.  Using a Fresnel Lens allows the light of the light house to be magnified numerous times and still be relatively small.  It is a truly amazing invention.
 
Our Fresnel Lens is made of Optical PVC, is .4 mm thick and weighs only 5.5 grams.  In short, it is the size of a very thin credit card.
 
The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter comes with a Best Glide Adventurer Series protective green case, which includes notable "Wilderness" quotes.
