The compass as a direction finder has been around for a long time and has become a standard for wilderness and outdoor adventures. Finding your way around in the wilderness can be a daunting task, but with the right equipment, you can face it with confidence. Not all compasses are made equal and there are a few features that make one compass stand out from the crowd.
The Eyeskey multi-functional compass ticks all the boxes in this department.
These are the Eyeskey compass key features
It is made from a aluminium alloy, making it lightweight, but heavy duty and robust. This is what you want from a device that you could potentially be entrusting your live with.
The compass capsule is liquid filled and has a floating dial. You will have to make sure the compass is level to get an accurate reading with this style of dial. The built in bubble level will help you keep the unit level and accurate.
It also has a rotating bezel ring for direction finding and the sighting lines on the cover are very useful. For your convenience, there is a conversion chart for angle, gradient and distance on the back plate of the unit.
A very important feature of this unit is that it is waterproof, making it ideal for most outdoor activities. Particularly where the weather can be a factor that for equipment failure.
The compass also has the ability to absorb ambient daylight and then giving off a gentle fluorescent glow, making it easier to use the device in the dark.
To summarise it’s important features:
- Rugged heavy, duty design making it robust and reliable
- highly accurate due to the built in bubble level
- multifunctional as a direction finder for use in conjunction with a map
- you can use it in the dark due to it’s flourescence
All in all, this is a compass I would recommend, as it can stand up to the rigours of wilderness and outdoor activities. Whatever the weather!
