Excellent shipping time— got it right away. It’s a basic wrist compass with a plastic housing so you can’t expect the best performance. Some things to note:
You’ll probably want a better strap. The included Velcro strap is thin and scratchy. I replaced mine with a stretchy cloth band. Much better. Note the compass doesn’t have removable posts for the band. It’s a fixed plastic housing.
Setting a bearing sometimes moves the north needle if the compass is not level. Not really a big problem but just make sure the compass is level when following a bearing.
A bearing is followed by sighting through the window which is read 180 degrees from your actual direction of travel. That’s why (geograohic) north is at 180. If you don’t get this, maybe a sighting compass is not what you’re looking for.
There is no correction for magnetic declination or grid north offset. If you’re following a predetermined bearing, you have to know how to correct for this and add or subtract accordingly.
Basically it’s an excellent sight and go compass or a reliable check on your direction when visual landmarks are out of view.
