Lightweight and translucent. Can be used as both navigating compass and marching compass. Don't need to open the cover to see where is "N".
The flip open cover could use some kind of locking mechanism. If hang the compass on neck and after some running/scrambling in the jungle, it will flip open. The edges could use some blunting too, a bit sharp and potentially could cut/injure.
I bought this for a 3 days jungle adventure race. Worked fine and work as expected. For the Con above, i use a rubber band to tie it to prevent it from flipping open. Works, but that would meant if i lose my rubber band, it will open up again.
If you are used to lensatic compass and love to "view" through the finder as part of your navigational task, get this.
