Reviews of Cammenga Olive Drab Phosphorescent Lensatic Compass/Without Tritium

This is the same compass that the military uses without the tritium. This compass will glow just as brightly as the tritium model by charging it with a flashlight to the dial for a few seconds. Although the glow will fade it can be recharged easily with a light again. While the tritium models glow without charging they will decay after 10 years or so. It comes with a cord lanyard and a decent snap closure case. My only complaint is the strap on the back of the case is not MOLLE compliant but will work for a belt. All in all a GREAT product and still deserves 5 stars!

This is the real deal when it comes to compasses. Before operators were using GPS to get from point to point, the compass and map made precision approaches and exact coordinates accessible.

This is the same one I used in the field minus the Tridium (which admittedly makes a difference). However, if you have a small Red LED to see the lens, you just have to keep a steady hand.

Sighting this guy is easy, walking and keeping the pace count is always the challenge. Well, that and trusting your nav skills now that your iPhone isn't able to drop a point.

These compasses are required gear on any trip where I think I'm going to rely on a battery powered anything. Find a solid 1:50,000 scale map and you are in good hands. Oh, well that and you might want to visit your friends at REI to get an orienteering course.

Keep one of these with you.
