Limited Introduction From Surplus
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..
I found that breakage on these compasses is greatly reduced when I put a couple of O-rings in an X pattern over it. I used old O rings salvaged from an old 1xAAA flashlight.
