"I've had several compasses from time to time through out my travels , some claim to be the ultimate compass made, some are VERY EXPENSIVE! I've also used an have GPS units, of course the GPS have their limitations.... (batteries) I have this very compass. it is by far the most thought out and most usefull compass of its kind!!! when you stop to think of all of its features you will come to fully appreciate its design. Its design is over 30 years old and still in service with our military (theres something to be said about that) the tritium is good for a minium of 12 years and it worth having if you have to relie on it often! The phosphorent version is just as good! I had one devise given to me to use for navagational purposes this is what I would ask for every time! being able to take sighting headings from land marks or getting my headings from a map. this thing will do it all!!!! even distance (scale is 1:50,000 ) distance of its scale unfolded is about roughly 3 miles . Compass is also easy to learn how to use, even for the neophyt.. I highly recomend this compass to anyone who requires a good solid piece of navagational equipment , its worth the money!!! get a cammenga!!!"

"Maybe I don't have too much knowledge on compasses but this one does not look like it's worth the price. I got it today, as always very quality service by cheaperthandirt. But I am returning this item right away. It doesn't look like an expensive compass."

"I used this compass in the Marines. It was the only one we were allowed to have and I'm thankful. This compass is the best for anyone who has any idea of how to land nav. It never failed me in Iraq or throughout my time in the Military. I had to buy this as I wasn't allowed to keep mine from the Corps. Good buy."

"I have carried one of these for 11 year and many deployments. The compass i have was given to me by my father in 1999 when i finished Inf Basic. It is marked 06/83 and still works fine. this will be one of the tings I pass on to my son."

"The baseplate of this compass is marked differently than the one I was issued in the Marine Corps. I\uFFFDm not sure if this is because this is a commercial model or because they changed the markings, but this one is missing the radiological hazard symbol. (Although it is noted that it contains tritium) \"120mCi 3H\" Aside from that minor difference, this compass is identical to the one I used in the military. It arrived in new, unused condition; in a plastic bag with an ALICE compass pouch and a green lanyard. The compass body is green hard-anodized aluminum and is very solid. All pivot points lock up tight, the tritium glows very brightly, the sighting wire is perfectly straight, and it only takes 2-3 seconds for the needle to find north. Also, when the compass is closed, it locks the needle so it won\uFFFDt be damaged by rough handling. This is a great compass for the money, and in my opinion, the best out there for land-nav. This is the best price for a new one that I have found on the internet. CPL, USMC"

"Pretty awesome, reminds me of my Dad's Vietnam era compass I would play with as a kid. Works great, solid build, don't go for the cheap version...buy it right the first time. An essential piece of gear, and an art that should not be forgotten in the new world order of GPS and iPhone."

"Purchased and received the next day. As usual, Cheaper Than Dirt's customer service is superb. The compass is what I expected. Very similar to what I used in the Marines during the 80's. Very well constructed. Ready to get out there and get back into land navigation!"

"For those of you wondering this is the actual Cammenga compass with Tritium inserts. This is the same compass that I used in the Corps. The compass is just as I remember it with rotating bezel equaling three degrees per click. Dial shows degrees and mils. Solid build with locking dial when lens sight is put in down position. Not a fake or copy. Worth the money. If you buy quality once, you don't have to buy it twice."
