    Best Luminous Mini Base-plate Compass Available

    Posted by Desmond Corrigan on 29th Nov 2020

    This is one of the best mini backup compasses currently available. Accuracy is very good. The luminous markers work well and the compass card movement in the damping fluid is smooth and fast. No air pockets in the five examples I’ve seen and the capsule is large enough that small air pockets forming due to low temperature/altitude/age should not interfere with the rotating compass card. Although it’s tiny it can actually be used for map to ground and ground to map bearings using the rotating degrees bezel and there are cm and inch scales on the plastic base-plate. This is the compass used in the current British military pilot/Special Forces Individual Survival Kit Mk 4, except that version has a mils as opposed to a degrees bezel. Works well with the supplied lanyard or attached to a zipper. Highly recommended.
