  • Summary: Simple compass with great features including a fixed declination for finding magnetic (map) north in the northern hemisphere. Just hold the compass in front of your waist and turn side to side. The red end of the compass arrow will point to magnetic north. Then turn the whole compass until the compass arrow is over the small red arrow below it. That's magnetic (map) north. At the same time the larger arrow on the flat part of the compass will point to true north.

It was useless for maintaining direction

Mountain Wind, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: Defective. As a some other reviews indicated, mine came minus the needle stabilizing liquid that these kinds of compasses use. As a result, the needle balanced precariously on its pivot and moved wildly and erratically at the slightest body motion. It was useless for maintaining direction. The problem was so obvious that someone familiar with compasses would have noticed the fault, while putting it in Amazon's shipping box. Returned.

Simple Compass at a Reasonable Price

Jesus follower, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a great and simple compass, especially for the price (~$15). I have used this compass on over 100 miles of hiking so far, although not yet in any hard to navigate situations (eg, fog, rain, etc). It's small and light enough to fit in the belt pocket of my pack. The markings are easy to read. The instructions that come with it provide helpful instructions for how to use if you are unfamiliar with how to orient yourself on a map using a compass such as this one.

You won't get lost

  • Summary: This is a great compass for the money and as a result of it's slim compact size is easy to slip into your pocket for any type of outing. This saved me and my family from getting lost on a long day hike when some other hikers thought it would be funny to tamper with the trail markers.

Suunto A-10 Compass

Daniel Smith, Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: I live in the backwoods of N.E.Wyoming, in the Black Hills, living in an area that my closest neighbor is 5 miles away, mail 3x's a week, winter snows 4-5', temperatures to -40. The summers (although short,4-5 months) hit +100 @ times- I was looking for a dependable compass, with no frills- a simple device that would show me where North was.

Most reliable compass i have found.

keith miller, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought many a compass, but this one is by far the most reliable. On many compasses you must let the needle settle before getting an accurate reading ,but this one is instant. Build quality is rather well designed and sturdy. This compass is by far my favorite so far.
