What can I say. Another fantastic compass from Silva. The long base plate is just the right lenght for lining thought on a map. The facility of both Mils and degrees gives me other uses but at the same time allows me to teach my partner and step daughter more about navigation and takes me back to my forces days.
Easy to use, good romers of differant scales clearly marked and even a differant coloured lanyard so It can easly be identified from my degress compasses at a glance. The ilumination on the base plate and needle work well in the dark. Only slight draw back and I mean slight is the degrees are a little hard to read.

This is a specialist piece of kit with the main reading in Mils that would be unsuitable for teaching beginners to navigate with and is not really necessary for the average hill walker for whom degrees are entirely adequate. It's called "Militaire" for a very good reason!
Having taught my son to navigate in degrees using a conventional compass I bought him this one as he plans to join the Army and will need to be familiar with navigating in mils. Like any Silva Compass it is excellent with all the necessary scales etc plus a good long edge for setting course between two points. Although the main (outer) reading is in Mils there is also an inner graticule in degrees. My son has quickly adopted to it and I quite like using it too.
It's well made, robust and easy to use with gloves on. In the right hands very accurate navigation is possible but of course in that respect its only as good as the person holding it!

These days there are many more sophisticated digital devices to plot your way than this - As yet none of them have been on the market as long or have been proven as well as this product. The Army still use them for field training. I have had mine for more than 30 years. It's cost effective, robust, durable and reasonably foolproof and you don't need batteries. It cannot be tracked and doesn't need a signal to operate. Essential in the great outdoors and highly recommended.

For a supposedly military model it's not very sturdy. Didn't last 2 weeks on exercise before developing large air bubbles. Several other people on the exercise with the same model had the exact same problem.

Excellent product. Perfect for instructing beginners... using romas for estimating Grid References, measuring bearings in mils. Like the size of the baseplate too.
