Cammenga G.I. Military Tritium Lensatic Compass (Model 3H)
This Cammenga G.I. Military Tritium Lensatic Compass is a great product, it is waterproof and solid aluminium and built to the specifiacations of the US Military so it is built to last.
It is equipped a magnifying lense, sight wire, and dial graduations in both degrees and mils to ensure accurate readings. The copper induction dampening system slows the rotation of the magnet without the use or need for liquids. It has 7 Tritium markings which glow on their own without the need for external light charging, for use at night and in low light and is a prodcut that is really built to last.
This model is battle tested, it is shock, water and sand proof and is funtional from -50°F to +150°F. Liquid filled compasses will simply not work at these extremes of temperature as the fluid will freeze or become less viscous when hot so it will not damp the needle.
Includes carrying case with belt clip and has a lanyard.
Made in the USA.

Excellent value from here. Was unable to get this delivered to Northern Ireland from another online retailer because it would have been a direct import from the US. Particularly wanted this compass because it is magnetically damped (not liquid filled) so no danger of it developing a bubble in the capsule. The moving needle induces an opposing field in a wire coil and is thus damped. It has a straight edge which means it can be aligned with map grid lines. Easy to read the compass divisions through the magnifying lens. Needle is locked when case is closed. Rotating bezel so direction of travel can be set. The rest is down to the user.
