Perfect for my Altoids tin kit. Handy as hell. Have not yet taken it to the field, but works great in my back yard.
Amusing, beautifully light-weight compass. I use it as a reminder to go in the right direction.
nice compact compass, they are going in my bugout bag and backpack.
Given the small size and price of this compass you would probably think of it as a backup navigation aide for your Altoid tin. However, it is much more than that. While only about 50% bigger than the WWII Pyser SAS survival button compass, it features an extremely vivid compass card. Just enough information to be useful without any clutter. All of the markings are GITD phosphorescent. It turns freely while still settling quickly.
That is all to the good, but not why I am writing this review. My old favorite Silva Ranger weighs several ounces with the case, so I used this compass as my primary on a backpacking trip in Yosemite last summer. Worked just fine. When I got home I threw my smelly clothes into the laundry and only later realized that this compass was still in the pocket of my shorts. After a trip through the laundry it was completely unscathed! All that for under $10. I now own four of these tucked here and there in case I need one.
Just got this little guy today. Very pleased with the quality, and the fact that it’s not liquid filled is a bonus. I bought this compass in case my phone dies and I’m stranded somewhere. Last ditch effort. I changed the green lanyard that came with it and put it on a leather cord instead. I will be wearing this everyday because you never know what’s going to happen. Excellent edition to my EDC. I may buy more int the future. I definitely recommend this item. Thanks countycomm!
