I bought sixteen of these for my classroom. They're great because they're accurate AND inexpensive. $0.99 each and the kids get some hands on learning about directions, magnets, maps, etc. I'm really happy with them.

I ordered up a batch of 50 of these to use as trade items in the game of geocaching. Frankly, I was prepared to get a box of total crap compasses. These turned out to be surprisingly sturdy and considerably bigger than expected. (About the size of a silver dollar) Also, each one is sealed in its own baggie, so I can carry several in my swag bag without them getting dinged up. The compass rose as well as the outer degree dial are crisply printed in a classic boyscout compass style. Would I try to orienteer through the Smokies with it? No. I have an expensive military lensatic compass for that kind of stuff. Are people (especially kids) tickled to find something this cool in a geocache? Yes, definitely. (And if you get right down to it, I bet I could use this thing along with a decent topo map to figure out where I am in a pinch.) I'll be ordering another batch of these when I start running low. I am very satisfied with the "bang for the buck" factor on this item, and the prompt delivery didn't hurt, either.

Addendum: I'm now on my third batch of these things. I've looked around the internet but have not found a better quality compass for the money. At the time I purchased these they were a little less than $40 for 50 units. They're actually pretty darn accurate. I typically leave them as geocaching trade items. I recently conducted an intro to orienteering event in the Hoosier National forest. I made up around twenty laminated topo maps, and taped one of these (in the little baggies) to each map. Every participant was able to accurately hit the waypoints using the maps and these compasses. After this third batch is gone I'm sure I'll be getting a fourth.

Thanks for a really decent product at a very reasonable price!

This item is perfect for my girlscout troop, for our hikes, and our overnights, and for locating coordinates for sky star gazing. The Compass was bigger and sturdier than I expected and it really works. Tip I learned: if the needle sticks on a compass just rub a drop of water over the glass top and it will eliminate any static that is causing the needle to stick. I would deffinately purchase this product again.

The compasses are relatively small, although they have a high profile. They were lighter and less durable than the picture implied, but still not bad. Of the 50, perhaps 5-7 were non-functional or iffy, and you do need to hold them quite flat to get a reading. Still, the rest worked fine, and what do you expect for this price?

One thing I didn't much like is that the pointer tip is black and the face is black, so in certain lights, it is hard to read. It really should be a contrasting color. I can't imagine red or green paint cost any more than black paint.

Let's be honest: you really can't expect a seventy-cent compass to save your butt if you're list in a canyon or forest. If you're expecting that, you're going to be disappointed. Don't skimp on tools that important. But to teach a bunch of 7 and 8 year-olds about cardinal directions, basic map-reading, and the concept of magnetic north? These are just fine. I needed a large number of compasses for that purpose, and since the money was coming out of my own pocket, I needed affordable. This fit the bill.

As for the seller, shipping was fast and the company followed up to make sure we were satisfied with the transaction and product. When we need more, I'll re-order from this seller.
