Limited Introduction From Surplus
I always carry a full-size compass in the field, usually a surplus Cammenga M3 or a Suunto MC-2, but these SERE button compasses have earned a permanent place in my kit. I've ordered 8 or 10 from County Comm and every single one is spot on accurate and they've lasted years being bumped around in Altoids tins, pockets, and the deepest recesses of bags and packs. To put it simply, they work. And they do so flawlessly. For the price, they're an unbeatable bargain.
Bright and fits well in a survival tin. Dry compass = no bubbles. A good value.
This item excels in every category except one.
The crystal unfortunately is not durable enough.
Sad that this was almost the Ultimate..
