Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good enough for its intended purpose For the money, very nice. Bought it as a starter for a first year boy scout who will probably abuse the heck out of it. I expect he'll get more than my money's worth of use out of it. A larger, transparent baseplate would be nicer, as would a better hinge, but you can expect to pay over double for the next step up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Basics are great but... All in all this compass is great, it functions perfect and the dial is clear and easy to read. However one of the features I bought it for is quite a disappointment, the cover. It, in no way, shape or form, will stay closed. I have to tie it with the enclosed lanyard string which is quite tedious when it should simply snap closed. November 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product This product matched all it claimed. The compass is easy to use. November 4, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor quality controll On mine, the settings, N, S, E, W, don't line up with the sight line. When set to 360 N, S, which should be 180 is 186, 6 degrees off! Unless you are walking around the block that is serious. Besides the 6 degrees and not having any declination adjustment, It seems to work ok. But certainly not worth $20.00. July 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Big buch no bang I bought this because it had a mirror, and the others did not, but it was twice the price. After opening it I discovered the mirror is not quality and the hing is plastic and the clasp is plastic as well, and neither work. I should have save the extra 10 bucks and bought the cheaper one and b ought a descent mirror for 3 bucks.... Hindsight n all... May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My son loved it. My son needed a professional compass for his first Boy Scout camping trip. It fulfilled everything that he required. April 13, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cheap Cheap, I wouldn't rely on it. I'm only keeping it until I replace it with another, better built. The door doesn't stay closed, I don't trust it. October 5, 2011
