5.0 out of 5 stars Great deal on sturdy prismatic compass 22 April 2011
By Javelion - Published on Amazon.com
In addition to being handy to check one's general bearing, this compass also has a sighting window and a viewing prism to make very precise measurements of the bearing of landmarks. A bubble level ensures the compass is flat and free to rotate. The compass also comes with thumb ring, lanyard, and sturdy green canvas carrying pouch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Easily Worn 6 Oct 2013
By Josh Smith - Published on Amazon.com

Delivered On Friday, July 26, 2013. Review written early Sunday, October 6, 2013.


I like this compass. It's a lot for the money.

That said, with light use, it's fading fast. It's only seen a couple uses outdoors; once was to test it and the next was on a hike. It did perform well.

However, this compass's markings and paint are easily worn (see picture). Before the marks are gone, I'll probably be ordering a better lensatic compass of more familiar configuration, with "hard marks" such as wires instead of depending on ink crosshairs.

It was carried in my pocket or belt, but *always* in a case. I would venture a guess that the ink would be completely worn away had I not cased it.

That's my main complaint.

The bezel does seem to be plastic, or just very cheap metal, but it works so I've got no complaints about that.

I bought this compass mostly to test the design, to see whether I like it better than the more standard design I'm familiar with. Had I had high expectations for this compass, I'd be more disappointed.

Overall, two stars. Had the crosshairs not worn, I'd have given it a solid five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compass is my copilot 30 Mar 2012
By Pierre T - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with everything the other reviewers have said. As someone who's done a fair amount of hiking and orienteering, I can attest that this is a very high-quality compass, functional and durable for the road. It's quite portable too. While the price is on the higher end, it's worth the investment if you're going to use it a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what is listed 5 July 2012
By David K. Crabtree - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
First, let me say that I like the compass I got. It is solid, has all the needed markings, a level, adjustable bezel for dialing in deviation and is the quality of anything I had in the military.
The problem is that the pictures and description are messed up. That, along with a flimsy case, is why I could not
give this item five stars. The picture is the same for both but the black one (MG2) is $10 more than the green one (MG1).
At one time the descriptions were different. I'm confused. Any item listed for sale should have the proper
notations and correct price otherwise the seller comes across like an amateur or worse.
July 2012: Now the green one (MG1)is $20 more than the black one (MG2)and the only difference still appears to be color. I repeat, this is a fine product
and I thought so much of it I made a leather case for my green one. If there are features, and I suppose I may have missed it, that justify a $20
price difference then the consumer should be able see and read them.
