Outstanding Compass!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by F40driver from Berkshires, MA on Wednesday, December 15, 2010
This is a great compass for all around outdoor use. The Silva 54, (Brunton in the U.S.A.), is a world-renowned classic, and this model, 54LU, with the small sighting prism, allows quick, accurate bearings.

There is no adjustment for declination, but I, personally, just compensate myself, and this saves making a simple, tried and true design more complicated.

I don't know why this model has been discontinued, but I can only hope Brunton replaces the 54LU with something as good, or better.
