Handy little pocket compass

I use this for urban exploring - a couple of times recently I've found myself exiting Tube stations or buildings by a different door to where I came in, and not sure which way is which, especially if it's overcast :) My phone compass is unreliable, and this little compass quickly gets me my bearings. It's small and light and fits into my bumbag and can be accessed very quickly

cant say much

Seemed like good at first glanced, but after studying some navigation got to know that there are no orienteering lines and declination scale. Could have been better if there was even N E W S pointed out on it

For basic use. Trekking. Part of a minimum prevention team on mountain outings. Expensive for what it is.

Correct compass, poorly resistant plastic

Purchased for a career of initiation to orientation, it is a compass that marks the north decently, and has limbo to calculate bearings and an adjustable wrist strap. The operation is correct. But the plastic with which it is made is quite bad. With a single, basic run, without making "the goat" and a modest use at home, the transparent base is already scratched and very damaged for the use it has received. I think that for a sport in which a compass that works well and withstands movements, friction or even a fall or grip on an embankment is important, some more stamina is needed.

Circle and triangle?

Your compass comes with a 2” graduated ruler so you can make measurements on your map and learn the basics of reading scales.

Why use a wide needle?

The Begin 100 compass comes with a wider needle to enable more accurate and intuitive visual alignment between the needle and the grid lines on the map.
