This orienteering compass is a great tool for hiking and mapping, especially when hiking in an unfamiliar area with a map. This compass offers a turnable housing and orienteering lines for finding your location on a topographic map. A built-in clinometer will help you find area slope and two built-in map scales will ensure your calculations are correct. A magnifying glass can be used to help read a map and also start a fire. The mirrored lid can be used for signaling in survival situations. 4 1/4" x 2 1/2"

Having just received the product, I have not yet taken it to the field, but its size and quality of construction exceed expectations for a $6 compass. The map reading features on the transparent base include: a metric ruler along the left side,an english ruler aong the right side, scale lines (1:25k and 50k) both of which run from the lower left corner across the end and along the left side, and 3 symbol marking templates. It should be noted that the housing turns somoothly (no detents) and is marked in 2 degree increments which (because of the ample size) aRe sufficiently separated to allow interpolation to the nearest degree. But the neatest feature is the CLINOMETER.The orienteering lines (mostly black) include a red oulined arrow. Within the red arrow head is a 0 degree mark of two 90 degree arcs that are graduated in opposite directions. Turn the compass on either side and a weighted sector (between the upper and lower plates) with a solid red arrow will swing down to indicate vertical like a plumb bob. 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. BUT there is a bonus for shelter construction because you can check the "plumb" of supports, the "level" of cross pieces, and supposed drainage slope. This is a REAL BARGAIN!!
