No need to spend money on a more expensive compass!
Sean D. Parshall
When using the lensatic sight, the compass is easily read to one degree accuracy by using the eye to halve the distance between degree marks.

This compass is not only affordable but is also made very well.

Sometimes you can just pick up an object and you know it is well made. The Silva Lensatic 360 Compass is one of those objects.

The body is very solidly built aluminum. The pieces fit together well, and, most importantly, the hinges for the cover and the magnifying glass don't feel cheap, like they will snap off with repeated use.

The compass itself works great and "centers" in only a few seconds. The crystal is engraved with two sighting lines, so no worries about these lines wearing off over time. The bezel luminesces well at night.

The bottom line is that this is a great lower end compass at a great price and this guy will be in my pack for years to come.

This is a much better handling compass than the Brunton engineer lensatic style compass. The one weakness of this model is the spinning lid. It is nice to have but it makes it easy to take a wrong bearing because the lid spins too freely. Also, there is no detent or marking for exact alignment with the physical case - you have to guess.

Other than the poor top spinning lid, this lensatic compass is quite superior to the compeditor's offering.

This compass is not only affordable but is also made very well. It is very sturdy and made with a heavy metal that won't likely break without a fight. It is very clearly marked for finding north and super accurate. Without a doubt the best buy online for a compass.

I bought this compass several months ago, and it has worked flawlessly. In addition, I have accidentally dropped it onto concrete and other very hard surfaces numerous times, and it continues to work perfectly. I am more than pleased with it; it was well worth the price.

It is a solid compass, made in Taiwan.
Very light.

however, it does take it a while to get it's bearing and can fluctuate fairly significantly, and likes to be on a very level surface, thus making it less than ideal for it's purpose.
That said, it is much better than similarly priced all plastic types.

This is a very nice compass. Just the right size for easy reading but easily fits in a pocket. Stays closed, but can be opened with one hand.

Good value, too.

The damping on this compass is very good - it comes it rest precisely in a few seconds. It is very rugged. I have dropped it with no effect and it has an ergonomic design. It is very easy to take a bearing. Excellent value for the money.

Silva manufactures (Ok in Taiwan) and offers quite a large selection of different Types & Price Points of Compasses. I had a friend borrow my military tritium compass sometime ago and lost it somewhere in the Rockies. I've bought and used some other ones thru the years, and now planning on going on a long Summer Camping trip on New Zealand's South Island, where parts of LOTR was filmed. I'm interested in that one River, that looks very much like the White or Buffalo River in Northern Arkansas, which is just a whole lot of fun, to canoe with your Bro's!
I bought this 'Engineer Lensatic Model' based on a it's Best features that other Reviewers have already covered, but after working with a few days, I really like that it is Rugged, It looks to be Heavy-duty Aluminum (making it light weight, as opposed to Brass), with a HD Powder Finish, so it shouldn't flake anytime soon, fits perfectly in my palm.
Very Simple to use, it also has a removable Rotating Bezel, and is a LIQUID-filled Compass, with Luminous markings.
The Price is Right (under 100 bucks) and will be Excellent to practice on, until I get one my active duty bro's to order the latest Tritium model next year.
