    What is your preferred compass?

    The image shows my preferred compass. In the U.S. we call it a lensatic compass. It is a genuine U.S. military compass of limited availability. I have tried many compasses but none so reliable as this. When the batteries run out what compass will you be using for land navigation? The illumination within the compass is provided by Tritium. Post the image or name if you can. Images may be available at the manufacturers web site.

    Each resonable compas will do.

    If the one you show is the one I had in my hands I would say it is to heavy (cast iron).
    It is hard to use on a map, where the Silva types excel.
    The Recta would be my first choise as allround.

    Since one is none, I would advise both a Recta and a Silva.
    And don't forget to use them....

    Just prep,

    Kennis zonder wijsheid is (zelf)vernietiging.

    Het is helaas gevaarlijk om gelijk te hebben, als de meerderheid het fout heeft.

    Het gaat niet zozeer om te zien wat nog niemand heeft gezien.
    Maar om te bedenken wat nog niemand heeft bedacht over datgene dat iedereen kan zien !

    The 'bomb proof' military Cammenga 3H Lensatic Compass is made of aluminum. It weighs 5.3 ounces (150 grams). That is way too heavy for a 15 kgs bug out bag system. Moreover it lacks a mirror, which could double as a signal mirror.

    I have Several models of compasses. All of them are cheap models. And they all point towards the North. I've seen some cheap vs expensive reviews... and i think that a better compass is not needed for my situation. I just roughly need to know what direction i'm heading. Don't forget... The Netherlands is a very very small country with recognition points everywhere! Even in Countries like Germany or France, rough directions will get you out of harms way.

    My preferred compass is me head ..... and a Silva Compass with it because my north (here in N-Europe) is a few degrees to the right from the Silva real North.

    Quite funny tho, when I was in Malaysia I was completely disoriented the first few days. Absolutely no idea where N, E, S and W were.

    I own a Recta DP6 and an original Bezard compass. I find the Recta easier to handle.
