Accurate, with a smooth rotating compass housing on a solid clear baseplate with magnifier, stencils, scale bars and a lanyard (which I replaced with polycord with pace beads).
Plastic isn't as rugged as the BSA Silva compass, but more than acceptable for the low price.
Glowing points don't stay illuminated beyond an hour after being exposed, but against acceptable for the low price.
Note the product dimensions (2 1/3" x 5") - It's a tad larger than other similar-styled baseplate compasses. This can be a pro, or a con, based on expectation. I for one like the larger compass, especially when introducing people to orienteering.
An exceptional deal. The few tiny issues are greatly outweighed by the positive features - especially the price. After hours of looking around, I can't find a better deal on a simple baseplate-style compass for orienteering.
