A great Brand and a Useful, Full-sized compass
A great full-size compass. It has everything and folds into a small, compact size. Lots of small/tiny compasses out there, but they are not that useful. Great for survival in the wilderness; got to know where you are and where you are going.David
It actually points North!!!!
I have to admit that I have no idea how to really use a compass -- I was never a Boy Scout. I don't even know why I bought this compass. I'm a huge gadget-nerd, and for some reason I've wanted a compass since I was a kid. Unfortunately, all the inexpensive ones I've looked at over the past 20 or 30 years have pointed to a direction I know NOT to be north. And all the GOOD compasses that do point true north have been too expensive for me to justify purchasing one (Remember, I don't know how to use a real compass and really have no use for one other than to be able to say, "I own a compass!") When I saw this one on the clearance section of, and saw the price (less than $6), I figured I'd add it to an order I was already placing. I certainly didn't expect anything special for the price, but I have to admit that when the item arrived, I was like a kid on Christmas morning -- I couldn't get the package open quickly enough! And the first thing I noticed was that it does indeed point true north!!! Now I just have to figure out how to use it and then I'll have to find something to do that requires the use of a compass. Maybe I'm still young enough to re-discover the NorthWest Passage!cjperry1956
Great starter compass.
I own several compasses and this one works similar to my Silva and Brunton Lensatic.Lala
