Compasses

A compass is a basic necessity in land navigation. Long before GPS and digital compasses, there were magnetic compasses. At their most basic level, a compass is carried to show the user which way is North, allowing he or she to decide which direction they must travel. While compasses can be used for much more detailed tasks like orienteering a map and plotting a azimuth, it is not necessary to know these skills to benefit from a compass.

Using a Lensatic Compass


The U.S. Army uses a lensatic compass for their basic land navigation course. This type of compass has a magnifying glass allowing the user to accurately read the bearing and find a visual point to navigate to in the distance. The Cammenga Lensatic compass is the most rugged type of this compass we offer.

Multi-Function Compass

Measuring Slope With An Inclinometer


The Trailblazer Navigation Compass includes a inclinometer feature which allows the user to find the slope of an incline. Sighting along the upper side to an object and reading the angle from vertical can help you calculate the height of a tree to be felled or the slope distance you must cover when the map distance is known.

Top Customer Reviews - Compasses


    • Patrick (Harahan, LA) - The ultimate


      This compass has it all and is very acurate compared with my other compasses I have in my boat and truck. The accessories tucked away within are really cool too. Very compact and a great addition to my survival gear kit.


      Review of: Black Savage Multi Function Compass Kit

    • Harvey Keefner (Grays South carloina) - black whistle


      Best buy for the money, a good survival tool, if you are ever lost or trapped they will hear you. The compass is a plus.


      Review of: Black Super Whistle

    • Tom Homer (Indianapolis, Indiana) - NORTH STAR BUT...


      I received this compass five days after ordering it on line. I was very pleased with this compass when I held it in my hand. All brass, liquid filled and points with dampening needle to an accurate magnetic north. I compared it to my more expensive compasses and I bought this because, like knives, you can't have too many compasses. Sure, who doesn't have a GPS but what if the battery goes dead deep in the wilderness or it gets dumped into the river when your canoe rolls over? Sure, the North Star works but what if the night sky is covered with clouds? This is an excellent compass and well worth double the price and you can orientate it with map and turn the dial to set a heading. A must have for day pack, backpack, hiker's pocket, boat or car. There are two indicator dots and a needle dot that glow in the dark. This compass is filled with mineral oil but I do not know how that does in extreme low temperatures? it's made in China but appears to be of good quality. Happy tails.


      Review of: Glow In The Dark Brass Compass

    • Bob (Maine) - Good back-up compass


      I bought six of these for my grandchildren age three to 14. I am teaching them how to,use them, including removing steel from the area. When I checked them out, they all worked and pointed to North together. The whistle is loud and annoying, just like you want if you're lost. These will be a back-up unit, clipped to their packs, not their primary compass. I am a regular purchaser from Kennesaw, and have always been happy with my purchases, shipping and service!

    • WhiskeyAlphaSixNiner (KCMO) - Neat & Accurate


      Great little compass, I plan on buying more fore our survival kits & bugout bags. Unlike a lot of these minature compasses this one is actually pretty accurate. Being liwuid filled helps a bunch & no air bubbles.
