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

Pros:
i bought this for my friend who in turn gave it to his kids. they are now using it during hiking and camping and very happy with the usage. i'm not an expert in compass reading so I don't really know how it compares with the other brands. all I know is it's a great gadget to teach kids survival skills in finding directions.
Cons:
there were some sharp edges that can cut the hand if you're not careful
Other:
it's a good gadget, but you have to have the passion to use it.
Bottomline:
buy it if you;re into the manual direction finding, otherwise, you can just buy a GPS
