A compass for your watch & more (Now with a new look)
CountyComm was able to purchase the over run of these compasses and is able to offer the extras here. They Fit 18-22mm Nylon watch bands and they are great in your survival tin.
A Note From Our Legal Department: Sorry the pictured watch and band are not included with your purchase of the Navigator Compass.
When in unfamiliar surroundings outside your normal AO any compass is better than none. ABSOLUTELY essential for backup to your primary NAV equipment because GPS batteries go flat and in a worst case a high altitude EMP burst will wipe out the satellites. You should ALWAYS have a minimal , but reliable compass as backup to orient yourself to the map and terrain or else you will wander for 40 days in the wilderness and either die or be captured by people you would not bring home to Mother.
While orienteering compass on dummy cord is primary, having one of these on my watch band is backup even if I am in DC and just trying to find my way from the club to the BOQ.
