  • Orienteering compass

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month


    What can I say? It points to magnetic north, as a compass should.
    Smart looking, nice colours, and includes a string for hanging it around one's neck.
    The plate includes circle and triangle holes so orienteerers can notate their own maps, and a low quality magnifying glass. There are various scales along the edges which might assist with map reading.


    Mine came with the black/white dial with S at the top instead of N. Much easier to use once I corrected that. (Would have given it a 4 for build quality if I hadn't needed to change it.)

    The glow in the dark markings do glow but are so dim that they're effectively useless.


    Need to remember to manually correct for magnetic declination.


    A good buy. For this price there's not much excuse for not having one when you're away from civilisation.
