Great for basic navigation

interstellar audio network, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: I got this for my son to put in his little survival/bug out bag. It is bigger than I thought it would be. Which is a plus. It is slightly smaller then my open hand. Great for basic navigation. I did not expect it to have this feature, but for those that might wonder, It does not have a declination screw. Also, I have seen some models/brands like this that have a little magnifier between the direction of travel line and housing, but this doesn't have that.

First impression: A great compass value

jbrianb, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: This is more of an first impressions style review as I've not had it in the field and tested it under sufficient conditions to rate its overall performance. I will update it as I have more experience with it. All in all, it appears near perfect with one tiny caveat. More on that later. Impressions: 1) No bubbles. Very good. 2) Points north. Every time. 3) Housing is robust and has good heft to it for plastic.

No Batteries - Easy to Use!

Iwork4aliving, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I am very pleased with my new Suunto hand-held compass. I used the same type of compass when I was in the Boy Scouts over 50 years ago. It is very fast to use and easy to follow a course of direction. I have used many compasses over the years, but I always fall back to using this type of compass because it is so easy to use. I keep one in the car and one in my backpack, because you never know when the batteries in my GPS or smart phone will fail.

  • 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.

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.

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.
