I bought this to teach my son how to take a bearing and do basic navigation. it broke after 30 mins of supervised use. replaced without fuss by mw staff but even so (like the one that broke) the needle is slow to respond in the wheelhouse (sluggish to find north) and can drag against the bottom of the wheelhouse unless you are careful. it's fine for teaching the principles and occasional use when it really doesn't matter. but on top of bowfell in a whiteout in winter when trying to find a safe way off, give me my old military suunto any day of the week. i guess you get what you pay for.

The circle is very helpful for drawing around destinations i want to get to, its lightweight yet still substantial in the hand. the needle is more stable than other compasses sold by mountain warehouse i tried.
