Agree with another reviewer who mentioned the sharp edges though. Pocket destroyers for sure, file them smooth. Or cut a tiny bit off at 45 degrees with a knife which is what I did just to soften the angle.
If you need a good reliable compass then don't think twice, buy this. Or get the Silva Ranger if you want a longer baseplate and glow-in-the-dark spots on the compass.
Update after a few years of ownership: The compass developed a bubble recently. It didn't interfere with operation, which is good - the needle is set low enough in the capsule that the bubble rides over the top. After reading around online, I discovered that bubbles often form with heat differences, and the suggestion was to put the compass in your breast pocket, allowing your body heat to transfer to the compass fluid. This I did, and am pleased to report the bubble vanished, never to return!
They are still as simple to use and reliable as they always were. This will be staying in my car in case of emergencies.
Nicely made feel to it, tight bezel etc, feels like it will keep working for a lifetime.
I agree with the points some other reviewers made regarding the sharpness of the corners, as mine is usually in a lightweight backpack I have slightly radiused the two square corners with some 1200 grit wet and dry paper, so I don't have to worry about puncturing a hydration bladder. However, this is not enough of a drawback for me to give it anything other than five stars, great little compass.
My only quibble is the slightly dubious closure for the lanyard, which is just two pieces of plastic held together by friction. I expect I'll be supergluing them together.
Keep the magnet well away from magnetic sources - you wouldn't believe how much more magnetic that the Earth your mobile and other electronics are, and apparently prolonged exposure to these can damage your compass.
