Summary

Good backcountry compass made to handle abuse!

Pros

  • Toughness
  • 1° resolution
  • Global needle with Ever-North Magnet that aligns with North quickly

Cons

  • Inclinometer gauge is a sticker placed underneath the compass and my model came with slight bubbling.

Good compass for backcountry travels where a compass may be subjected to some abuse. Rubber boot and covers provide good protection to the compass itself. Like the 1° resolution and the map scales are nice. Being able to adjust for declination without a tool is nice as well.

My only complaint is the inclinometer built into the compass center is just a sticker applied from the back and on my model featured some small bubbling in the adhesive. A very small gripe but justified at the price point.

Otherwise, it's a feature-packed compass that I would recommend.
