Works, not very accurate – Compass Keychain with Thermometer Reviews

Very cheap, same thing from well known Finnish brand cost 6 times as much, and it works alright too. The compass is actually pretty accurate, I compared it with my $70 pro grade compass and it's pretty much dead on.
The thermometer display lower than actual temperature, about 5 degrees lower in fact. Not that serious but it seems this is easy to correct at manufacturer, just glue the bulb a bit higher.
Too bulky for keychain, unless you are one of those people who jingles whenever you move.
Why not, throw it on your pack's zipper pull, and you'll have direction and temperature when you need them.
