8099 PRO Eclipse

rated 2 of 5 stars Good idea. Poor construction. Over the years, I've had a lot of compasses as a 17-year-member and Team Leader of a local S&R organization. They just interest me and I get a lot of use from them. I've owned several Bruntons, Silvas, and Suuntos among others. Every Brunton I've owned eventually got a bubble in the capsule. None of the Silvas. The disc (needle) of the Brunton also jumps off the needle it rotates on, causing it to tip off at an angle. It's just bothersome for the amount of $ one… Full review

Solaris USB

rated 5 of 5 stars Good inexpensive product. Very durable and efficient. I have had quite a few different brands of these panels and these are some of the best for light use. Picks up well in indirect sun and continuous charging with very little. Brunton has never been a popular product where I live and that is where the benefit is reaped. These are much better panels than Goal Zero panels in a comparable size. They can also be picked up for much less money. I bought mine on eBay new out of the package, for a display… Full review


rated 2.5 of 5 stars Fair product for getting by. Seems more like a gimmick. This is a good unit if you only need to keep your cell charged or maybe a simple GPS. Doesn't store much power and charges very slowly. Doesn't include any adapters, only a double ended cord with a USB on one end and mini USB on the other. Takes an insane amount of time to charge. Doesn't have an indicator light other than the one that shows how full the battery is. Probably because it wouldn't charge if an indicator light blinked continuously… Full review

10B Baseplate Compass

rated 4.5 of 5 stars There were two major needs for this compass: 1. It must have 2 degree increments and 2. Must be able to set declination. It has both! I bought this compass for navigation in the backcountry. It has worked fine. I can set the declination to my area without needing any tools. The only thing that worried me was if I would accidentally adjust the declination because there is no tool needed but I haven't had any issues with it. For a compass for under $15 I think this is a fine addition to the Ten Essentials! Full review

ADC Summit

rated 1 of 5 stars It might be a nice piece of kit if the battery door didn't have 2 of the 3 tabs that hold it down broken off. I have to put thumb pressure on the taped on door to get a display. I bought it TODAY and have sent an email to Brunton. I bought this today at Gander Mountain half way across the state. When I got home I discovered that the installed battery was depleted, and I installed the second battery that was in the box. I immediately noticed I had to hold pressure on the battery door to get the display… Full review
