Nice cheap compass – Compass with Map Measuring Ruler Lanyard Reviews

posted by DeNeusbeer on 06/22/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Very cheap.
- The compass feels sturdy, it will last a while.
- It just works, which is the most important part.
- Lanyard for carrying around your next.
- Ruler on the side for different units comes in handy when working with maps.
- Rotating inner ring
- Magnifying glass actually works
Cons:
- Slightly bigger than I'm used to.
- No other cons really
Other:
I sometimes go on hiking trips (scouting), and there's always parts where you need to rely on your compass to find the way. I trust this one enough to take with me and use it, without fear of it breaking or failing me.
Bottomline:
A fine compass, especially for this prize. You'll pay a lot more for a similar compass elsewhere.
