Solid, long lasting!
I'm really glad the Ready Store is offering a compass of this quality. I watched the movie "The Edge" and decided to have a mini wilderness bag in a flight bag for a small flight or a vacation bag that contains simple life saving tools. You really never know where you'll end up, believe me.
Just like the old General Issue land nav compasses the US Army used. Except this has a bit of glow in the dark (very nice) and an upgraded paint job (meh).
This is NOT the cheap plastic compass you pick up at a large chain-store! I was impressed with the weight and seemingly hardy construction. I say "seemingly" because I have not thrown it off a cliff or out of my moving jeep window... although I feel certain it would take the fall! Hardy compass for a reasonable price.
