35 years ago I was a K-9 Officer and needed a good compass. I got a Tekna Wrist Compass and have used it ever since. I don't go in the woods without it. This inexpensive wrist compass is of course not a Tekna but it works and can be relied on. It also makes a great back up to have in your pack or cargo pocket. I am a back up guy and have back ups for my back ups because Mr. Murphy is the Law in the wild. At this price these are also great gifts for youth as we know how they loose things and the band adjust down to the smallest wrist.
