Great compass for a first timer.
This compass only has what you need, which is what I like about it. Easy to operate, semi light, and glow-in-the-dark needles.

Solid, solid compass.
- It does its job
Yes, you could spend $200 on a compass, but when it comes right down to it, this puppy will do the same job for much much less. It doesn't have a mirror but it will work as all Suuntos do and is easy to use with a map. Highly recommend!
