I purchased the one with the luminescent paint because it is 1/3 the price of the tritium gas lume (which has an 10 year life), is identical in every other respect, and is marginally brighter. I cannot emphasize that enough. I have compared them both together. The lume paint only needs a 2 second charge from a flashlight directly over the dial, and you've got a very strong glow that will last for several minutes.
The compass is a dry compass, with a sapphire bearing that gives little resistance in turning. There is a 1:50,000 scale on the side for determining distances from 0 to 5000 meters. The entire dial turns with the directional arrow which is awesome. The dial has both degrees and mils/milliradians (for field artillery). An outer, independent bezel has a luminescent azimuth marker that can be turned to the desired degree, while a stationary line remains under it. So, you simply turn the bezel to the degree sought, orient the compass so that North falls on the bezel marker, and walk following the stationary line.
This compass is designed with international travel in mind -some are only made for zone 1 use. It is waterproof, and uses a copper shell instead of a fluid to stabilize the movement of the turning dial. It can also be used in extreme temperatures.
The really nice feature on this compass type is that you can hold it to your cheek and look through a directional peep sight while simultaneously glancing through a magnifying glass that does a magnificent job of displaying the dial -both day and night.
I've seen these things dropped and tossed into boxes, and they are durable.
Bottom Line: This compass is one of my favorite outdoor tools along with a set of good binoculars.

High quality compass, when you close the lid it locks all the moving parts in place to keep them from being damaged my movement over time which is a great idea! Read morePublished 14 days ago by Pen Name
