In the event you do think your life will depend on a compass try this one Cammenga Model 3H Tritium Lensatic Compass.
Joe
It points to a different direction of north each time you open it and it points to a different direction of north as compared to other compasses.
Richard J. Johnson

I bought this to see if it would be adequate for someone (nephews, etc.) to learn how to properly use a military compass. I checked it against my Cammenga lensatic unit and found that the one I received is accurate. Unlike the Cammenga, this light weight Brunton model would not stand up to rough treatment for long, but with proper care it will serve its owner well. It is made of metal and certainly adequate for light day hikes of a few miles or so and would be good way to learn how to use a military compass without spending a small fortune (only about $15). Even so, if you're going deep into the woods for several days, don't hesitate to spend the extra money for the Cammenga. Cammenga supplies the U.S. Military and the durability of their compasses is worth the additional cost.

No, it's not a Cammenga. For <$11 no one should expect the same quality. If you hold it level, you will get an accurate enough reading to head you in the direction you want--but you'd better hold it level....and wait a minute for it to settle.

I've got an old better quality Brunton that I would trust with my life--this one I would not. In no way would I use this with a topo map in big woods. Out of the box, it points about 10 degrees E of mag N compared to the older Brunton and a high priced GPS at speed(which agree).

I use it in the deer woods to get a fairly accurate reading on wind direction and stand placement. It fits in the smallest pocket on my belt pack which is why I bought it. If it breaks, I'll get a new one.

The case is non-ferrous--seems sturdy enough. Better have a working flashlight or a Bic to see the alleged luminous cardinal points>>charge them with a flashlight, and they're dark in about 5 minutes.

Bottom line: if you need a compass that will point you approximately where you want to get...for the money it gets the job done. If you want accuracy, buy better quality.

If you're buying a compass, presumably you expect that you will need to rely on it to find your way at some point, or at least are planning against that possibility. Given that, you should buy a good, reliable one. This is not one. I picked this up as an impulse purchase at a local outdoors store as I realized that I didn't own a single old school magnetic compass and thought that it would be a good thing to have. It looked identical to the "real deal" military compass and the price was surprisingly low which should have made me pass it over (TANSTAAFL) It's going back.

Pros:

- it's sturdy. Really a nice job on the case.

Cons:

- Either the magnetic needle is too weak or else the liquid with which it's filled is too viscous, as it settles in "approximately" the right direction when set on a level surface, but requires tapping to get a true north reading.

- The lens is horrible. I simply can't figure out how to hold this so that I can sight through the notch and read the scales at the same time, all I see through the lens is blur.

- The lume, well, doesn't. At all. As in, there's green lume-colored paint on the markers, but it just plain doesn't glow, even after charging under a lamp for a few minutes.

If the last were the only fault I could excuse that (I do have a soft spot for Vostok watches after all, which have lume that is only slightly more functional, and I'm always carrying a pocket flashlight) but as a total package this is more of a novelty toy than a useful direction finding tool.

Lessons learned; 1) far too many consumer products are crap, don't buy *anything* without reading some reviews first and 2) a used Cammenga is a far better buy than this new Brunton.

I bought two and only one worked ok.
I will make this short.
Spend the money and buy a good one that works well.
Amazon would not take it back because of what it is filled with.

I'm exceptionally satisfied with this compass. It would be nice if the needle swung a little more freely but, I have had nothing but success with this product.

It's made from some sort of heavy duty composite that is rugged enough to survive a 12 foot drop off a ledge with a 150 pound man landing on it. It survived this unscathed.

In general, okay to good. The accuracy is off by 1 to 2 degrees, they stuck the dial on slightly askew. Dampening - way too much, but not bad if you're mountain biking and giving it a beating. Design is good and solid, illumination is lacking a full moon is required.

YOU MUST HOLD IT LEVEL - failure to do so will result in readings off by as much as 10+ degrees.

In general, at less than $15, a buy. BUT, if you're serious and way out in the woods get a Cammenga.

To be honest, I just needed a compass to teach basic compass skills to some Cub Scouts. The needle seems to take forever to settle on magnetic north, but other than that, it works just as well as the lensatic compass I used when I was in the Army.
