Price Paid: $10.99 @ Acad
Really good, basic compass for begining map readers.
- Good for beginers
- Dials well
- Easy placement for north by using the circle needle
- No cover
- No mag glass
I think this is a really great compass for those just starting out in the outdoors, or those just begining to read topos. It doen't have a lot of the other features that some higher end models have, which tend to scare alot of the newbies off from learning. I think it comes with a fairly good and easy to understand instructions. And the one I just bought my son, came with 5 free downloadable maps too. A plus!
