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.
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!
If you are looking for a back up compass, or just one for training by yourself to get used to Nav, while working in mils, you would struggle to go wrong with this.
Please though people if buying one make sure you know how to use it confidently, otherwise it will become useless.
Anyway I have used this several times and it's great does exactly what a compass should do. Would recommend to anyone needing a compass.

It's a brilliant compass used by the British Army, decided to buy my own rather than sign one out every time I need one.Published 9 months ago by Tyler
