Technical Details


Product Description

For those who need a sighting compass, the Suunto MCA Compass features a mirror that locks open at 60, 120, and 180 degrees. Mirror compasses allow you to view the compass dial and background at the same time. Plus, the vertical line at the center of the mirror can be conceptually extended to the horizon, which helps you to more accurately target bearings. And in a pinch, the mirror can be used for signaling.

Reliable and dependable, pretty accurate. For my level of expertise exactly what I needed at the right price. More features are nice to have but then you pay three times as much. This model has the basic features that you will use everyday and for twenty something dollars is a very good buy. Every hiker should have it in his ten essentials (or something as good as this one).

I love this compass. I read a review about how the mirror was not clear. Too bad the guy didn't take off the plastic covering the mirror. It has a thin see through plastic for protection that makes the compass look hazy. But as I looked closer I seen the corner of it lifted up and was very happy to have a very clear mirror. Very good for the price! Don't need those extra things just add and subtract declination yourself. I need glasses to read from up close but can usually read normal size letters and numbers. I found that the declination numbers were too small for me and thought it was easier to just add and subtract declination by myself. Remember, declination east compass least. Declination west compass best. least you subtract and best you add. Have fun using your Suunto MCA-D Compass!

Just received the new compass and really haven't had a chance to use it in the field. I can say this, I love the features, and the quality is very good. The construction is very durable and the measurements seem accurate.
From other reviews, I did notice a small corner of the protective covering on the mirror, which was extremely handy to know (otherwise I would have thought there was something wrong with the mirror, since the mfg doesn't notate this amywhere).
After using in the field, I will update this review but wanted to state what I know at this point. It is much better quality than other compasses I have reviewed in this price range.

I am a Search & Rescue tech for a sheriffs dept. This compass was a warranty replacement from another that developed an air bubble. The company gave me no problems with the replacement and I thank them for that. This compass however is not a nice as the one it replaced nor do I really like this compass. It will be fine for a hunter or somebody that wants to keep a compass for an emergency in a pack. I don't recommend this compass for cross country navigation, table top map problems, or if you need to shoot anything precise. The sight is difficult to use and not fast to acquire the target. The line in the mirror is hard to use(see) and difficult to line up straight for the precise bearing. This will not be a deal for those who are not needing to shoot for a tight bearing. If you are wanting to hold a tight bearing to cut off trail or shoot for a fence, get a different compass. I used the MCA for years as my primary. This is going to go in my pack as a back up. The lanyard is too short also. The hole is not in a good place to attach the lanyard to the compass as it then interferes with the latch of the top part when you fold it. It is important to use your lanyard out strait to create a table type plane to shoot your bearing. If the lanyard is too short or the hole is not in the center un abated, then thats a problem. This compass make it difficult to do. Thanks for the no hassle replacement on my 10 yr old compass I suppose, but I would never have bought this one. If you just want a compass for hunting or maybe for Boy Scouts, then this is ok.

bought this to show my wife how to triangulate her position on a map using a compass and a pen. works great. I carry this now in my hunting/hiking packs when in unfamiliar hunting clubs or WMAs.

This is a quality built, no-frills compass. I was able to confidently use it orienteering within minutes of opening it. Construction is robust, and I have no doubt it will last me many seasons!

Not too pleased. One corner broke off after it somehow got caught in the lanyard. Other than that, it works as advertised.

Hubby is totally impressed with this compass. Read other reviews because he is saying the same thing.
