      by fromNearly the perfect compass This is a great compass. The other reviews hits all the finer points so I will point out that I prefer to get gear that has multiple functions. Example many compass's do not come with a magnifying lens. The lens can be used to read smaller detail on maps but also can be used to start a fire with sunlight. This compass magnifier works to start fires if needed. My only con is I wish they would devise a system to hold the compass declination tool. Currently you can place the key around the lanyard but then it sticks out. A better design would be for the key to attach to the bottom of the compass.

      by fromGood all around compass Good compass from a company that is the Gold Standard as far as compasses go. It is a little on the big side but I do prefer it over a small thumb compass.

      by fromDon't leave home without it In some ways this seems like a silly review, after all it's a compass, right? Well, not so fast. The point here is, it's very durable and includes all the basics you need, such as the most common scales. The most important feature is the ability to set the regional declination, using a small screw underneath. Set it and forget it, not withstanding the declination does change over time. So many people get themselves in trouble because, "we were just out on a day hike and we had a map." It is VERY common that not all the trails are on your map. I can tell you from personal experience how quickly an innocent little day hike can go wrong. I also use a GPS, this combined with a reliable non electronic compass is a must. This is a simple quality product. The minute you find yourself saying "which way is the trail head, wish I had a compass," is a minute too late.

      by fromAlmost perfect I love this compass. It has everything you need: declination adjustment, glow in the dark dials, scale, and rulers.... except a mirror. I should have gotten one with a sighting mirror though. Now I carry a separate mirror as part of my emergency kit. The dial has gotten some sand and debris and isn't turning as smoothly as it once did. After the abuse I've given this instrument, I am very pleased with its performance.

      by fromGreat compass good to have on trips. GPS may not be as accurate and dependable. Compass a must in vehicle or hiking. No batteries needed.
