Round Military Style UTM/MGRS Tool Large Print Version Scales: 1:24,000 x 1km 1:25,000 x 1km/1:250,000 x 10km 1:50,000 x 2km/1:500,000 x 20km 1:10,000 x 500m/1:100,000 x 5km Compass Rose in Degrees (Size 4.75" in diameter) This tool is an improved version of the Graphic Training Aid 5-2-12 Coordinate Scale and Protractor used by United States and NATO military forces around the world. By using a slot on one side of the tool for access to the map, the tool can be more compact than the traditional GTA tool. The tool features several additional map scales, including 1:24,000, which is the most common topographic map scale found within the United States. The 1:100,000 scale now spans 5km grid lines, making it much more usable. Plus, he overall dimensions of the tool have been reduced so that it is the size of a music CD, easily fitting into a pocket or any slot where you could store a CD. This tool has larger print numbers on both the compass rose and the coordinate scales. The inner protractor is marked in degrees. Bands of white ink are printed under the compass rose to make reading the compass rose easier and to keep the tool from "disappearing" when you place it on the map. Our coordinate scales offer significant benefits over the standard issue GTA 5-2-12 The tool is printed on 30 mil plastic stock with a protective coating. It is the thickness and stiffness of a credit card. It’s 33% thicker than the standard issue version, so it’s less likely to bent or broken when you need to use it. See photo of the tool. Rounded corners keep it from wearing holes in your pockets. Includes 1:24,000 scale for USGS 7.5 minute topographic maps. Larger 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scale rulers for maps with wider grid spacing. Larger print type on both the scales and compass rose. Internal cutouts are shown with red in the product images. The map image in the background is so that any white ink is visible. Neither the red outlines nor the map image are printed on the tool.

This item has the flexibility which I was looking for while also being quality enough to not require babysitting inside my bag / box of stuff.
The scales seem to be pretty accurate and is certainly within the tolerances I needed for my application.
The degree markings are flush with the outer ring which I was cautioned about when comparing other protractors whereas people were taking scissors and cutting off excess to improve their capabilities.
The slot aspect, which is simply a long vertical cut out with scales on BOTH sides of the slot allows you to position the target destination inside the slot for perfect alignment. Also, I strongly recommend that any protractor have a 1:24000 scale as most topographical maps will be in this format. Another plus is the white section around the outer edge so the protractor does not disappear when placed on a map.
It carries the product thickness-gauge of a standard charge-debit card, and therein possesses a higher degree of durability than that of its predecessors.
I especially care for the fact that it coincides diametrically size-wise with that of a CD, enabling me to find convenient means of both protective storage as well as retrieval, especially in the light of field applications (wherein it is readily available at a moment's notice with ease of accessibility). Obviously the design was born of field experience, and I for one -- of I am sure many -- care for this product a great deal. Thank you, very much.
