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