Batteries might run down, you see.
So I got this instead.
*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 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.
