Rated 4 out of 5 by TR Nice starter compass This was recommended to me by a sales associate, and I'm happy with it. Easy to read numbers and marks. The lanyard hole isn't very big (needs a very small clip), so I still have to figure out how to hang it. I would have preferred a slightly larger base plate to make the cm scale easier to read, but it will do for my purposes. I got the neon green version. Dial moves easily, but feels pretty solidly attached to base plate. Small size is good for packing away. I'll have to find a small pouch for protection, but that should be easy. January 17, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainHiker Excellent entree level Compass Great for use with maps. Excellent light weight compass adiquate for beginners and those well versed in Navigation. Not as nice as a liquid dampened one and not as easy to sight without a true sighting feature but similar to the ones I trained on as a kid. August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dodger2112 Reliable This has always been a reliable compass. I used one on top of my Bradley Fighting Vehicle in the Desert Shiled/Storm. Non-magnetic, so they worked great and lasted the whole time I was deployed (August through May). August 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by spyrockhiker A Solid Compass I find this compass well built and easy to use. The color contrast makes it easy to read during the day and night. June 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by NWScout Orienteering As a scout master I teach boy scouts to use a compass and a map to navigate. The Silva compass is easy to use and has all you need to effectively navigate in the wilderness without batteries! The dark band under the dial allows you to easily see the degrees. This is a fairly durable compass and should last a scout for many years. There are more sophisticated models, but this is simple use. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by DAC71047 Compass Enjoyed using this for myself. The reason to use it is that I can direct properly my telescope to a right area of the sky that required the compass to direct. Thank you for showing me the right tool to pick. May 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by JonEO Works well for the price! Unlike many inexpensive compasses this one points to magnetic North consistently. A great starter compass. May 7, 2014
