Rated 1 out of 5 by from Know what you are getting! This compass would not be a bad one to give to a child for learning compass skills. But that's about as far as it goes. The declination can't be locked, and the compass itself isn't fluid-filled. Plus, the case isn't hinged--the plastic bends to close the compass. So, the top is likely to separate sooner, rather than later. If you want a mirror compass, step up to one of the mid-priced units that REI sells. They are far better suited for back country use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Servicable, not durable My sunscreen leaked in my backpack, and when I wiped it off this compass, the markings on the clear plastic came right off. It was just regular, name-brand sunscreen, but apparently it was enough to dissolve the markings.I guess it worked pretty well up to that point.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light weight construction Purchased this for an emergency kit I put together for when camping. This item seems to work well and is extremely light weight. The major concern is with regard to how durable this item will be. Although I havent had any problems with it, It just feels cheaply built when I'm using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 in 1 Perfect 3 in 1 buy. You get a sighting mirror that doubles as an emergency signal and a whistle!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Left it home once, never again I left this home once and got lost when the map wasn't accurate. Never again! Has saved my butt quite a few times. A good compass is worth its weight, and this compass is a good one. Whenever I go on an adventure, this goes with me and I always get home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cool This is a great product. It still works even after i dropped it on the ground a few times. It only had one or two scratches and that was it. It is super accurate. I love this compass.
