Brunton TruArc 3

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Inexpensive, accurate, precise, and compact compass with a global needle and adjustable declination. A compass you’ll likely pack everywhere. Not loaded with features, but all the features you must have to navigate any terrain with your map. You can trust this item to do what you need it to do.  I've heard the TruArc 3 referred to as a training compass, a starter compass, and a beginner's compass. I take exception to that because there really is no such thing. Yes, there are basic base plate… Full review

Brunton 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

Brunton 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

Suunto M-3D Leader Compass

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great compass and may be your lifesaver. It is compact, non-electronic, luminous, magnifier lens, and has the ability to adjust for the regional declination. This could be your lifesaver when you need it the most (lost, injured). Suunto is a primo leader in compasses. Combine it with your GPS system and with your maps and you should be able to keep out of trouble in the outdoors.   It is a high quality product from a leader in the field. I highly recommend the compass and I highly recommend… Full review

Sun Company MiniComp II

rated 3 of 5 stars At 9g/.32 oz, the Sun MiniComp II is a surprisingly well-featured mini-compass that takes up little space and virtually no weight. A great backup to digital technology or a lightweight backup option when you need to check direction. Don't swap out your go-to Suunto or Silva, but if the ultralight bug has bitten you, this is something to consider for quickly orienting maps or taking a bearing. When I am in the backcountry, I make it a point to have map and compass with me. I generally carry these… Full review

Silva Lensatic 360

rated 5 of 5 stars Sturdy, reliable version of the Engineer's liquid-damped lensatic compass. My Silva Lensatic 360 compass has proven to be sturdy, reliable, and accurate compass for wilderness navigation. It is not made by Silva of Sweden but by Johnson Outdoors, who own the Silva brand name in North America and who source this compass from a manufacturer in Taiwan (Manufacturers in both Japan and Taiwan have supplied thousands of these liquid-damped lensatic compasses over the years, some better made than others).

Suunto Arrow 20

rated 4 of 5 stars Simple, effective baseplate compass with fast-settling needle. I purchased the Suunto Arrow-20 for general wilderness navigation and occasional orienteering events. The Arrow-20 is a conventional baseplate compass fitted with a millimeter scale and an oddball 1:15,000 map scale (probably intended for maps commonly used in orienteering competition). Circular and triangle cut-outs in the baseplate allow the orienteer racer to pencil in control markings on the map.   The Arrow-20 has a large rectangular… Full review

Silva Ranger CL

rated 5 of 5 stars This compass is one of the best out there. Very durable, accurate, and easy to use. The Silva Ranger compass has been the benchmark for over a half century. Used by outdoorsmen, contractors, surveyors, silviculturists, miners, and anyone who needs to rely on the best directional instrument the world has to offer. I have used the Silva Ranger for over 40 years years, and found it to be the easiest to use, and the most accurate and reliable compass, through all types of weather and temperatures. Although… Full review

Suunto M-3D Leader Compass

rated 5 of 5 stars The Suunto M-3D Leader Compass simply meets my detailed traditional requirements for use with my USGS Quad topo maps and my Garmin eTrex Venture HC hand held GPS (that is still available for about $100.00) for hiking on trail, off trail, scrambling and for bagging peaks in summer and sketchy winter weather. It is great for snowshoers, skiers, snowmobile riders, hunters and horsemen! The Suunto M-3D Leader Compass simply meets my detailed traditional requirements! Here is why: 1. A reasonably long,… Full review
