Here's what I found:
1) It sticks alot. It has a little water "bubble" to level the compass which is annoying to get and the actual compass sticks.
2) you can't do the cheek-to-compass method, it isn't built for that.
3) When you do get it to level, as long as you have an accurate compass nearby, you can verify that it is correct, but sometimes it takes a long time to find the point and you have to sit there and wait.
4) It's $10
Summary: Out of all the groups, ours was the only one that finished and got all our points early. I mention this not so much to brag but to mention that a) we finished quickly because the compass lined up quickly and b) some of the candidates which had competent skills in land nav and had actually practiced on their own BEFORE hand had sub-par compasses. In our discussion, the accuracy of the compass played a large role since we compared our points to where they ended up. I need to pass a land navigation day and night test and this compass will at most be an "oh crap, i need something" option. When I used the Cammenga I LOVED IT. It gave an accurate and quick azimuth which I need. So no, I could not trust this compass.
NOTE: I need to note that this compass did not appear broken in any way/shape/form and did look solidly built but the actual design/build of the interior of the compass was crap compared to better made compasses.
Not that the weight really matters... my compass never pointed north, nor anywhere near one a magnetic axis. (Amazon quickly offered a refund for that fact.)
I changed my review. From 2 stars to 1. I am not trying another one after compared to one I bought locally at a military surplus store.
The SE CC4580 MILITARY has good, and bads!
It seems durable, it's weight 6.4 oz. It's a bit bulky and has no latch to keep the cover shut or flapping as your walking. Not good for hunting, I can not get an accurate North reading that I trust this is a big one, that's what you buy a compass for!
It has a level ring bubble that you use to center to get a reading but it completely off in relation to actual level.
The degree ring seems loose and chowdery, a bit grinddy if fine sand got under it it'd be awful, the degree ring does glow bright, but sadly the North arrow does not, but remember getting an accurate North read is just deplorable.
It has a little sight viewing magnifying viewer that is sorta neat but as stated pertaining to "North" it's useless.
This product is much like those button type compasses that you can purchase off of Flea-bay where you buy 20 for $5 bucks and only 5 are good, and the rest end up in the landfill.
This product looks good feels heavy but don't work! Good for a display case or landfill degradation experiment.
The string used is okay for what it is, but I'm going to swap it out for some paracord. Also the pivot hook it's attached to is going to be the first thing to break.
The bubble leveler seem to function great, and the internal lens is clear to see the spindle .
Overall I would say a 3.85 but 4 stars works for me. My reasoning is the thin and only partially durable hook hinge for the string, and it's not exactly metal, I see and feel a metallic poly on a majority of the parts.
I would still buy one with the knowledge I received from owning one.
