Rated 2 out of 5 by from Performed well three trips.... I bought this compass because I had misplaced my old reliable Suunto which I had for over 20 years. I used the Brunton compass on exactly three trips and based on the fact that my Suunto was still in service when I lost it, I believe that would show that I take care of my equipment. However, the Brunton compass somehow developed a large air bubble which is definitely affecting the accuracy of the compass. I am not sure how it got in there and I have not had any luck removing it. Luckily, I have found my Suunto and now have a working compass again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I joined a Search and Rescue group, and needed a good compass for land navigation. I have found that the needle on this compass doesn't move unless you have it completely level. I can turn 90 degrees, holding it (not quite) level in my hand, and the needle will stick until I take the time to get that bubble completely in the center. Even my trainer was surprised how unresponsive this is compass is. We do not have time to play with, and baby a compass when we're searching an area. Complete waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality- Not field use friendly I purchased the compass for use in mountain operations course, the needle won't stay balanced unless you hold it just right (not level) and the numbers are extremely hard to read. Declination is impossible to precisely set using this compass. I ended up having to borrow a teammate's Sunto. Do not buy.
