Simple basic compass at a good price. I carry 3, on in use, one in my fishing gear, one in the survival-first aid kit.

I selected this compass for my first BWCA trip based on the affordable price and it looked durable. I have to say that it did a fantastic job. This compass took a beating every day on a 5 day trip and showed no signs of abuse. It gave a quick and accurate read every time. I have never navigated the wilderness before using a map and compass and I had no problems with this one at all. Unless you are a very serious wildeness person that may need more features, this compass is all you need for basic outdoors navigation for a very low price.
