Rated 3 out of 5 by hank Silva Companion 609 Compass I returned this item as it was too sensitive to surroundings. It gave false readings a lot. It does not allow you to turn the dial to different headings at the top. At same price I found one at a competitor that had much better functionality. May 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by ambero compass This compass is not accurate. I believe it's a waste of money. I gave to my daughter as a toy. November 21, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by J.I.C. guy cheap,simple,reliable. Not the most feature filled compass, but cheap, in price not quality. If your a hiker, camper, hunter or putting together a bug out / F.E.M.A. 72 hour bag, this is a good choice for a bare minimum/budget compass. But treat it gentle. July 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by KJH63 Great Value I went to Dick's to buy a compass that was small enough for my key chain and one I could use for the outdoors. This compass is accurate and is very good for the price. July 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by av8r1 Inexpensive, functional I was looking for a small compass I could carry around in my pocket every day, and I found one. This little Silva is slim and easy to carry, and isn't obtrusive in the pocket. You could easily wear it around your neck on a lanyard, but I think it's too large to wear every day or to carry on your keys. It reliably and quickly finds North, and the needle stabilizes quickly. For serious orienteering or navigation, I would go with a proper map or lensatic compass, but for occasional or emergency use, this little unit works great. The price was fantastic too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Airman64 Where am I going? Simple and inexpensive, tiny and so easy to carry and read, but yet seems to work pretty well. I think Bear Gryll uses one. =) June 11, 2012
