I have been using this for about a year now, and I have found it very useful to make sure your map is oriented the correct way for walking or mountain biking and more. Just clip it to your bag, jacket, bike, clothing etc, and it will always there ready to use.
It does not have the rotating bezel like more expensive compasses but this is great just to work out where North is.
Highly recommended just to have in your pocket for emegencies.

What can you say about this little Guy? Build quality is good, but then again that's what I expect with Silva. I like the small ruler on the edge to help with calculating distance. Handy for having as a backup while I'm out on the hills but not a substitute for a proper navigating compass. Very hard to put a rating on such an item as you'll never use it until you have to depend on it, which I have no problem doing.
Oh the carabineer is nonmagnetic so it doesn't interfere with the compass (I've seen this happen on other compass) and it arrived faster than expected.

Have to say it's a nice to have...

Highly recommended!
Very compact for pocket or keys, very precise and NO bubbles at all, not even a single tiny one.
I don't know what kind of fluid they use, but the needle moves in it very swiftly.
Worth the money paid, Silva makes high quality outdoor products , it doesn't say where its made, but i also have other compasses and gear from Silva and all were made in Sweden so i guess so is this one.

All compasses over time, and the smaller the sooner they stop being precise, but i had many small silva compasses and even i carried them on my keys or next to other metal objects i only had to replace them after more than two years, if you use compasses only occasionally or rarely keep/store them away from metal objects and magnets (such as loudspeakers) to prolong their lifetime.
Do not bother with cheap, bubble filled, chinese made button compasses, get a Silva instead.
A compass is one of the most important gear for outdoor/emergency/survival, so the better the quality, the bigger chance you have to find the right way

This is so small and neat it will live in my camera or biking bag without taking up space. It comes in useful surprisingly often.

If I have one criticism it's that it sometimes needs a little bit of wiggling and gentle tapping to get a totally accurate reading. Other models may be more accurate and have more features but I know they'll most likely be at home in my desk drawer the one time I need it.

In the photo I thought the base was olive green but it is clear plastic.

I love it, it's great but a cheeky family member liked it so much they've already half-inched it so now I'm going to order another one!

Bought this for my son - perfect size for him & clips securely onto whatever you need it to!

If I was using it with maps etc then I would probably think about buying a bigger one, but this was ideal for him to know which direction he was facing so he could use it in conjunction with a starmap to know what he was looking at in the night sky.

This little compass will not give you detailed information for map reading. However, as a direction finder in a city etc., it is both light and effective, with an easy attachment for belt or bag.

Not the cheapest out there but works well and is a great addition to hook onto a rucksack. I used it recently in Asia to workout the way back to our hotel through the city. A useful urban tool as well as the normal great outdoors.

What a great little thing this is. I have a habit of running alone in isolated places in all weathers and when I found myself 'handrailing' on the hills in a low cloud and a hailstorm last week I thought I'd take a more sheltered route through a forest. I could hit the road in five or ten minutes, and I knew the area like the back of my hand - or so I thought!

Half an hour later I finally popped out of the trees into somewhere familiar, but not after a few moments of serious uncertainty. It was a reminder that it's really easy to get lost when the conditions turn, and when you're fell and trail running you don't have a heavy pack of normally useless equipment to fall back on, because that's the whole point.

So, if you are prone to being in unusual places in unusual situations I'd heartily recommend this accurate, simple, tiny little compass stuffed in your shorts pocket so you can work out which way the flapjack / pub is, and to avoid an embarrassing big yellow helicopter moment.
