Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value! This compass is a good value and good quality from a very reputable company. It isn't their top end compass, but will do the job it's designed to do easily, if you know how to use it properly. It floats, so it goes with me in my kayak. One of the first items packed for Boundary Water trips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea - poor quality Could be a nice compass for occasional use and as a backup. Yes, the hinge is plastic and doesn't help the overall performance. The one I purchased leaked all the fluid while sitting in a drawer for a few months after initial testing. Useless now as the needle sticks to the top or bottom most of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good orienteering compass This is a well built compass. Ideal for hikers navigating over land in the back country.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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...
