This is a good basic compass. My only complaint is that some of the lettering is very small. The item arrived on time.

Does it fit in my pocket? Good! Nov. 26 2007
By Joseph L. White - Published on Amazon.com
I was trying to talk myself into buying a GPS system at well over $100. The salesman said, "Oh, well, I would carry a compass and a map too...."
Batteries might run down, you see.
So I got this instead.
Benefits:
*It's small enough to fit in the pocket of my woods shirt, which has button flaps. My belt already carries a canteen and a folding knife, the camera or binoculars should be around my neck... Pockets are good.
*It's cheap enough that if I misplace it, I'm not out a lot of money.
*Baseplate is long enough (3 inches) to use as a measuring tool on a scale map or chart.
*Sighting notch good for open country or lakeside use. Sighting looks complicated until you try it; then you say, 'Is that all there is to it?'
*Mirror on inside of sighting cover is handy for seeing if you have particles of freeze-dried, reconstituted rations on your teeth.

Yeah, I'm eventually gonna get a GPS system. I'll still carry a map and a good compass. This is a good one for the money.

This is a fine Compass May 2 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I do a lot of compass work and while this is not my preferred compass for me (I use the Silva Ranger) this is a very good compass for Scouts (which is why I bought it for my boys). I always prefer a mirrored compass. You can get better readings with it and when you fold out the compass flat you can span longer distances on a map and still have a compass that fits in the pocket. It also is an emergency signaling device and a shaving mirror. I like my equipment to do double or triple duty. The needle moves well , not sticking like some cheaper compasses do (This is critical as a sticky needle is a pain to work with especially for people just learning. This in itself can make the difference in people loving map and compass work and hating it.) I'm not real enthused with the hinge as it's plastic, but it's a real hinge, not just a thinned out fold of plastic that will rip off with use like some cheaper compasses. I really nice feature on this compass is the index line (for reading your azimuth) is under the clear bezel making it easier for learners to take the reading. This is a good compass and will suite anyone just fine. It does not have declination offset, which is fine with me because I want people to learn it with the math.

So others may live April 10 2012

When I joined the SAR team I was given a list of equipment to get. This very compass was recommended by the National Association for Search And Rescue (NASAR). Their standards are used by many organizations. No doubt this will come of use to me and no doubt this has been one of the many tools used to save many lives.

Declination is not adjustable July 10 2010
By Gabriel M. Deal - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The declination on this compass is not truly adjustable. The red, north box/arrow always points to true north. To adjust for magnetic declination, you have to make sure the north end of the needle is offset from red north box/arrow by the number of degrees that your area's magnetic field differs from true north.

This is a bit more error prone and is a lot less convenient than being able to adjust the north box/arrow for your declination once and then just align the needle with the box/arrow whenever you take a sighting. The Silva Ranger lets you adjust the box/arrow for declination like this, I'd spend a bit extra and get the Ranger if you plan to do any real back country navigation.

Other than the lack of adjustable declination, this is a good compass. It's sturdy, has a see-through base, and has a good mirror and markings to get a true sighting.

This is a decent compass. I've been using it for about a year now and it has never failed me. I would recommend this compass to anyone needing a dependable compass to throw into the pack for emergencies.
