Limited Introduction From Surplus
Just what you need for a back up/pocket survival kit compass. Well marked, good lume, all you need to read cardinal directions. It’s not a liquid dampened, self leveling orienteering compass and isn’t supposed to be. I’ve got those too. The upsides are no bubbles, tiny size, neck lanyard. It definitely fills the niche I wanted it to.
Accurate, freezing proof due to no liquid and handy to keep in a small spot.
Referring to this as a SERE compass is a bit laughable, since mine broke after no more than a 6" fumble onto a kitchen/bar counter top.
