You can’t always count on GPS because, basically, it depends on electricity, but you can always count on a Compass to keep your bearings straight. It’s an indispensable part of any outdoor gear or bugout gear and BUDK.com has a collection from lensatic marching compasses to mini watchband 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.

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.

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.

Just Once - Good for the money
This is a small but accurate compass is perfect for hiking and camping. If you want to teach the kids the basics of land navigation this is a cheap and easy alternative that can be replaced on any budget. This handy little compass fits in your pack, pocket, or almost anywhere, and you can hang it around your neck or attach it to your belt with the included lanyard. This compass is durable and takes a descent beating and keeps its accuracy.

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.
